5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: Holds a lot of data

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This drive is used as a back-up drive for storage. It does not get cycled very hard but works fine.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat idea, but not supported yet

Pros: Great price, high storage, reliable company

Cons: Think twice before buying this drive. Almost nothing on the market at this time supports 3TB drives. Windows 7 64bit, Windows 2003, 2008, 64bit or 32bit. NOTHING WORKS. It will probably show up as 750gb under device manager. There are VERY FEW motherboards that can support 3TB. This as a total rush to the market and WD did a terrible job of disclosing that to consumers. Shame on WD for that.

Other Thoughts: Stick to 2TB.

5 out of 5 eggsHuge Drive and buck

Pros: Got this drive when the getting was good. Nice that came with 2 SATA internal PCI-E card. Huge amount space for price and works great for storing music, lots movies ,etc.

Cons: Slower rpm speeds, Not ideal for boot drive or standalone drive.

Other Thoughts: Even though slower rpms it still rights at decent speed over the network using gigabyte lan. I also got my drive before that water flood across county

1 out of 5 eggsDrive lasted three months

Pros: Capacity is nice. Drive is relatively quick.

Cons: I used this drive for less than three months and a hardware failure occurred. Thankfully I have the data backed up, but really??? Three months??? That's a lot of data to retrieve. I will have a hard time trusting the replacement drive when it arrives from Western Digital.
In addition, I planned on using this drive with my Netgear Stora, but a significant number of devices cannot recognize this drive because of its size. This is not the fault of WD, but is a factor to consider before you purchase. Check compatibility and be sure to back up your data!

Other Thoughts: The drive was used in an office environment, with proper ventilation, never dropped or bumped. I had no warning it was ready to fail. I will be sticking to 2tb drives for a while. And I will be buying a different brand from now on. Out of the 6 or so WD drives I've purchased, three of them developed hardware problems within one year of purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great. Quiet and BIG!

Pros: Can't ask for more from a storage drive, it's quiet, fast, and holds lots of data!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: On Windows 7 SP1 64-bit, I had to update to the newest Intel RST drivers in order to get this to work without the included HBA card. If you have an Intel RAID I would recommend running the Intel Driver Update Utility to verify you have the newest RAID drivers installed. Anything below Intel RST 10.6.0.* you will need to use the HBA card because the Intel drivers before this could not detect the full 2.7 TB inside Disk Management. If you happen to be using the HBA card and you're just adding the drive for storage, you will need to change the drive boot order in the BIOS to boot off your original drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drives

Pros: Tons of storage, seems reasonably fast for my purposes. The stream movies just fine from my new media server.

Cons: Not sure where the problem lies, but these drives were not recognized on the SATA controller onboard my new SUPERMICRO MBD-X9SCM-F-O motherboard. Once I used the included RocketRAID HBA they worked great. HBA was picked up and driver loaded automatically with Windows Server 2008 R2. Not sure why a brand new UEFI motherboard would not recognize the drives. Also had minor problem getting the HBA to let system boot, just had to switch slots.

Other Thoughts: Great drives, wish they worked off the onboard SATA controller though.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Quiet, cool, sufficiently fast. I did my homework and read most newegg reviews on this drive before purchasing it, and my upgrade went smoothly - installed drive with controller, formatted partition table as GPT, quick-formatted - few minutes later I had additional 2.7 terabytes of disk space to spare.

I have somewhat old (circa 2006) AMD computer running 32-bit Windows 7.

Cons: None to me.

Other Thoughts: HDTune shows write speeds 80-120MB/s for this drive, which is faster than half of hard drives in my systems, so I consider it as a perf upgrade, too. I don't plan to use it as boot drive.

5 out of 5 eggsIntel 10.5.0.1027

Pros: Install Intel 10.5.0.1027 and everything works fine. Once intel gets off their bumms and updates the actual BIOS to 10.5.0.1027 for RAID everything will work just fine but for now I'm going to have to settle for Software RAID

Cons: Settling for Software RAID

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent!

Pros: Works great! 3Tb(3,000,457,224,192 bytes/2.72TB). Biggest drive I own. I own 3 2Tb drives, and 3 1Tb drives as well :D

I'm strongly considering another. I like data redundancies...

Cons: Umm... sorry, can't think of any :p WD Rocks!!! I find it unbelievable that soo many people have trouble with green drives, and yet I've never seen a bad one.

Still no petabyte drive??? :S

Other Thoughts: I did research before I purchased. So, I am aware that most current motherboards DO NOT support these drives properly. Which is why the 2 port S-ata card accompanies the drive. The card can recognize the drive, most motherboards cannot(Properly). I still consider it plug and play for windows 64bit(GPT) .
