5 out of 5 eggsWork great for me

Pros: I have 4 in a raid 5 setup I bought at the same time. They work great, although slightly slower than 6 500gb in raid 5.... obviously.... With a high end raid card and some sort of striping\raid5 no concernable performance issues, at least not on a desktop with only medium I\O

Cons: hmm.. their not 20k RPM and free?

1 out of 5 eggs2 Drives Non-responsive

Pros: none for these two

Cons: Both drives were unresponsive. I've had much better luck with the older WD "Green" RE drives, but thought that since these were destined for a RAID setup, the TLEP or whatever would be beneficial.

Other Thoughts: I've had much better luck with the older WD "Green" RE drives, but thought that since these were destined for a RAID setup, the TLEP or whatever would be beneficial.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet enough for my aluminum iMac

Pros: Exceptionally quiet, lower power draw than stock drive = less heat and stress for my 24" iMac.

Cons: A bit slower than the stock 7200 rpm drive.

Other Thoughts: 7 incident-free months (and counting)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: I own four of these and they run wonderfully. Quiet, cool, and reliable. 5yr warranty.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've purchased one drive every 3 months (so each is probably from a separate manufacturing batch), and they've all been totally reliable for me. I imagine that other negative reviews are not the norm.

3 out of 5 eggsOnly get this drive for RAID

Pros: Use in RAID

Cons: Don't use in desktop

Other Thoughts: EACS model for desktop/JBOD/RAID 0
FYPS model for RAID 1/5/6

Anything else and your desktop has a high chance to lose data or your RAID will rebuild itself quite frequently.

1 out of 5 eggsDEAD within a day...

Pros: Tons of storage, "green", not much else...

Cons: After setting up my new box, I was sad to discover that my computer had frozen while installing Norton 360. I booted back up only to find a Vista error. After about a day of investigating (was concerned that it might be my mobo not recognizing SATA) I found that THIS drive had died and caused the errors. Had to reinstall everything. I had originally planned on using it as a storage drive alongside 2 WD VelociRaptors in RAID0 (which were the actual boot drives), but it turns out that this thing is MUCH less reliable than any RAID setup I've ever used. I wouldn't even trust a coupe of these in RAID1...

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for security, stay away from this thing...nothing but bad news.

2 out of 5 eggsDead RAID array

Pros: The drives that work have been working flawlessly.

Cons: The drive that failed threw enough random errors to destroy my RAID array during the expansion on it. Fortunately I had *most* of the data in other places. But there is some data that I'm not getting back.

Other Thoughts: I got 4 of these to upgrade the drives in my ReadyNAS NV+. Of course the first one I put in for expansion is the dead drive, which responds well enough that my ReadyNAS doesn't reject it, but throws random errors that corrupted the rest of the array.

1 out of 5 eggs3 out of 5 bad

Pros: Running temperature lower then other drives the same size.

Cons: We ordered 5 drives and 3 of them were bad right from the beginning. The failed drives were confirmed by using WD diagnotic tools.

Other Thoughts: This is completely unacceptable for a brand new hard drives with 0 run time on it, let alone 3 out of 5 being bad. WD did send us replacements but they were recertified (previous RMA'ed drive from someone else). Needless to say, we will not be ordering any more drives from Western Digital.

1 out of 5 eggsMassive failure rates!

Pros: None!

Cons: Bought 6 of these drives in April 2008 to build a 3TB RAID 10 array. In the last few days, two suffered complete failure, and another one has ton of errors. I did not notice the failures and thus lost the entire RAID array. DO NOT BUY!!!

Other Thoughts: I'm disappointed WD... disappointed... thanks for keeping me up all night restoring the server. Good thing it was just used for data backup storage and not a live server...
