Because desktop drives offer high capacity at a lower-than-SCSI cost, an unprecedented number of RAID systems are being designed around desktop drives. But life in a desktop computer does not compare to the extreme environment in an always-on, high duty cycle RAID system. What is needed is a drive engineered to thrive in a high-intensity RAID system while still offering traditional desktop value. That drive is the WD Caviar RE. Designed and manufactured to enterprise-class standards, WD Caviar RE drives provide enhanced reliability in a 24x7, high duty cycle environment. In addition, they offer a RAID-specific time-limited error recovery feature that improves compatibility with RAID adapters. WD Caviar RE hard drives are ideal for RAID server applications such as video surveillance, enterprise backup, document management, scientific computing, and similar demanding storage environments.

4 out of 5 eggsgo for it

Pros: I put this rather aged (mfg Aug 2005) WD Caviar 250GB HD in my Mythbuntu 14.04 Mythtv box as the OS drive. It's very slow to boot, but booting happens in Mythtv so infrequently that it's not an issue. ( Tried to use an SSD, but for some reason the boot up failed). In Linux there's a utility call Disks which I ran and learned this drive has about 2 years of use on it and zero bad sectors. That sounds like a good report so I'm knocking on wood and running it. For $25 can one worry much?

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: See Pros.

4 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It works for a refurbished drive

Cons: nothing yet, but I am sure something will come up considering it was a refurbished drive. Hopefully it will not have issues.

Other Thoughts: It works for now
