5 out of 5 eggsTo answer longevity and reliability questions.

Pros: 3 years of constant use and storage, three transfers between upgraded motherboards and cases. still running strong and holding nearly 1 TB worth of information that is constantly being changed.

Cons: I purchased this drive back in early 2012 for my gaming rig. For the last three years this HDD has pulled its weight more than any other HDD I have ever had the pleasure of using. It has gone through three case and motherboard changes as well as has even been dropped twice due to personal negligence when cleaning the system. It still has chugged on harder and stronger than any RAID system or high performance system can output. It is a very reliable drive and will run on your computer without any problem.

5 out of 5 eggsWorkhorse! Totally reliable

Pros: Have had this thing in a home theatre library working 24/7 for over a year. No issues. Excellent drive for the price. Plenty of space and speed for 1080p movies and TV. Formats to 1.81TB in Windows. Not bad at all.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: 4TB is now available but 2TB is where the sweet price point is currently.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

Pros: Quite, Low power, and no major issues.

Cons: One drive had 3 bad sectors within a month but nothing since.

Other Thoughts: First off, I ordered 25 of these hard drives because I couldn't get a hold of 25 of the 2Tb Reds due to supply shortage. I wasn't super happy about it but I needed the space ASAP. The biggest issue I was worried about was the number of DOAs people were getting but I got all working drives.


So far I have been really please with them and was thankful I got these after WD put out a notice on the Reds I was going to buy.

As of right now only 1 drive has had any bad sectors (3 sectors) and they showed up after a month. After getting the drive to map those as bad I haven't had any issues.

1 minor problem out of 25 drives is a good for me. 5 months so far. Will update if I run into problems.

5 out of 5 eggsSWEET upgrade to our DVR!

Pros: - Price vs Storage Capacity: this is a great drive for the price.

Cons: - None so far... ; - )

Other Thoughts: I bought this to upgrade the storage of our DVR. Although not an "officially" support upgrade... I found a very detailed guide on how to upgrade the storage in your home DVR that rhymes with "shmeevo". If you can clone a pc hard drive, you can upgrade the storage of YOUR DVR!!!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for Series 3 Tivo!

Pros: It took longer to connect this drive to my computer than to apply a Tivo backup image and supersize it via WinMFS.

With a 1 Gig swap file I got just sky of 300 HD hours of recording space on my OLED S3 (648) Tivo.

This was an inexpensive option to add life to my liftime service Tivo S3.

free 2-day shipping with Shoprunner.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: buying this drive is a no-brainer. If I can't get a deal ont he Red series I may use a few of these for a Raid 10 array in my media workstation.

1 out of 5 eggsProne to quick failure

Pros: Affordable, that's it.

Cons: Failure rate must be extraordinarily high.

Other Thoughts: Bought two drives for mirror RAID setup on linux server. First drive failed after just over one year, and I thought "well, good thing I bought two and have the second one for backup". Unfortunately, I procrastinated a bit too long because the second one failed a few months later and I lost 1.8 TB of data. Would NOT recommend these. If it helps other purchasers, I also bought a 2 TB Samsung drive at the same time and it's still up and running fine.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Rich, it is unfortunate that you experienced multiple faulty drives. Please note that there are many variables that can result in a failed drive, such as power outages, accidental physical damage, internal component failure, and computer viruses, just to name a few. As a troubleshooting step we recommend download and run our Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows (WinDLG) utility for Windows users, or running Disk Utility for Mac users. Information regarding our WinDLG utility and Disk utility can be found at the following link. The desktop Green power drives may be used for RAID 0 and RAID 1 however we would recommend using a RE class drive such as our WD RE4-GP for reliable RAID usage because they have TLER.
