5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Enterprise Hard Drive

Pros: I have been using this kind of drives for years (2TBs, 1TBs mostly, haven't tried bigger ones - NAS drives - yet) in my servers. Western Digital has always honored all my returns by sending the replacements promptly, in good packaging and excellent condition. Although I have experienced the same nonsense (3 years of warranty instead of 5 years), I have never believed that 'one bad apple spoils the barrel'. Sometimes you just have to fight for it. And there is always the way to do that.
The seller that I purchased two of mine recently - 7/16/2015 - (Tech Experts) through Newegg seems to be a decent and honest company. They shipped my order on 7/22/2015 (a little late, I admit) and I got it on 7/23/2015. But I believe that they must have ordered it from somewhere else as Mr. Jeffrey B. has described (they are "specialized in hard to get or outdated HDD's" "as they would have to obtain them first and then have them shipped to me").
Thus, I decided to give 5 eggs to Western Digital, Newegg, and Tech Experts (Shawn, you have good customer reputation, BRAVO!)

Cons: Non so far.

2 out of 5 eggsNot really 5-year warranty

Pros: If received from vendor who cares about product and way it is being shipped out to customer, it is very good, reliable hard drive, I used those for long time.

Cons: Providing IT services for 25 years I was shocked after I received this item. Shipped via USPS in envelope with very little protective material... After I registered this hard drive with Western Digital it gave me 3 years of warranty, not 5 as stated in item description. It appears to be old overstock sold by company which distributes potatoes too.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsIts how you handle the problems

Pros: Originally ordered 3 HDD to replace some failing RAID5 drives in my Dell Server. After ordering them I emailed Tech Experts to discuss expedited shipping as it wasn't offered in the order processing and I needed them quickly. I got a call from Shawn who told me that they specialize in hard to get or outdated HDD's and that it wasn't possible to get mine quickly as they would have to obtain them first and then have them shipped to me. Shawn politely agreed to cancel the order if I could find what I needed quicker on the Newegg site, which I did. Shawn kept in very good contact with me and credited 2 of 3 HDD that day and canceled the order.

Cons: Although the order was never even picked to ship, Shawn had to issue RMA's due to Newegg's ordering process, which was both a pain to Tech Experts and to me. She then had to issue credits for the drives and either missed one or the system didn't get it correctly. Not sure why she had to enter 3 separate RMA's and 3 separate credits, come on Newegg, you should make this whole process easier, quicker and simpler. Since 1 credit was missed it didn't get it on my credit card statement and had to Contact Shawn again. She was very quick and issued a credit, apologized profusely for it.

Other Thoughts: As I said, it's all in how you deal with the customer, Shawn and Tech Experts, while not shipping me any product displayed excellent customer service. They handled the problem quickly, courteously, and didn't give me a hard time or anything. Thanks Tech Experts and Shawn!

5 out of 5 eggs4x RAID0 WD RE4 1TB

Pros: Enterprise grade, warranty, meant to be used in high volume data situations, RAID Arrays, Ideal for Servers etc..., Great for media producers, editors etc..
5 Year warranty
RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER)

Cons: Heat
latency vs SSD

Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these drives in a RAID0 configuration and they've been working flawlessly. I have had numerous other problems with this workstation but these drives are solid. I just had a motherboard go out on this machine and I have complete confidence in picking up right where I left off when they see their new Motherboard. I will definitely buy more of these

5 out of 5 eggsLasts a long time

Pros: This is a well constructed drive that has lasted without issue, for three years and counting.

Cons: If anything, it's only a 1Tb drive, but it was not a con back when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: The only reason why I'm planning to replace it now, is because I'm running out of room. So, I'm stepping up to a 3Tb model, and using this drive, plus another 1Tb drive from the same manufacturer, as a backup drive, until I get another 3Tb drive to replace them.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Quality and Service

Pros: Very good quality enterprise drive sure to last many years.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Solid state drives are very fast, but it will be quite awhile before they are cost competitive with quality, reliable, fast drives like these. The service was also fast and well packaged.
