5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD10EFRX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Got three of these and threw them in a Synology NAS. I LOVE THEM. They run 24/7 and stay cool. In a RAID 0 setup, I'm able to pump full gigabit speeds. I've added dual link aggregation for the NAS on my network, and I've been able to pump around 200 megabytes per second maximum to various machines around the house.

They come with cool stickers.

Cons: I wish I had more money to get more of these things. I'll probably upgrade from this 1 TB model to put three of the 4TB model in my NAS in a few years.

5 out of 5 eggsBought 2. No problems.

This review is from: Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD10EFRX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: I bought two 1TB of these for a NAS. After an extended SMART test, 0 sectors reallocated. Quiet, cool, little vibration, and very low power consumption. I needed a hard-drive that could keep up with 12hrs of heavy utilization, and not rack up the electric bill the other 12hrs of the day. These did just that task.

As for performance, I only know that the read speed is >120Megabytes/s and latency isn't higher than a typical HDD.

Cons: Was a little scared to buy this looking at the reviews around the internet on these drives. Perhaps, I just got lucky and received two working drives. Or maybe the trouble is yet to come. But the 3yr warranty does help ease the worries.

Other Thoughts: Well-packaged.

This review is from: Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD10EFRX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Finally got around to replacing my seagate drives in my Synology NAS (ds209). These WD Red drives have been solid so far.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsone out of two

This review is from: Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD10EFRX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: the other one worked

Cons: Dead on arrival. Now I get to spend $10 to ship it back for another try. I expected better from Western Digital.I probably have too many of their drives. This was a "red' WD, presumably better quality for NAS use. Fooled me.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear user, we regret hearing you received a device that was not in good working order, as all Western Digital products are tested and determined to meet WD's stringent quality standards before they are shipped to our retailers. We understand your situation and will gladly replace your in-warranty drive, as we stand by our products and their associated warranties.

3 out of 5 eggsIt did its job

This review is from: Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD10EFRX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: When I first got it the hard drive worked really well. It did its job.

Cons: Less than having it for a year and it is already failing on me which kind of sucks.

5 out of 5 eggsTop notch Hdd

This review is from: Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD10EFRX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Does everything it should, read and write speeds around 150MB/s depending on the files being moved. Purchased on sale for $56 for a video game storage. And for that price you can't find a better 1tb server grade drive.

Cons: No Cons

Other Thoughts: I would recommend just buying WD Blue because it's a little cheaper with the same performance but there is no reason not to get this when it's on sale like I did.

4 out of 5 eggsToo Soon to Tell

This review is from: Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD10EFRX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: All four of my WDEFRX 1TB drives worked out of the shipping package. Right now I am a happy camper. I have had other WD drives fail after a week, but WD is always very good about replacing the drive, no questions asked.

Cons: Seems like a lot of people reporting failure. So far so good.

Other Thoughts: After set and testing, I have been moving my data off my old NAS, so I have been giving these drives a workout for about 16 hours now.

1 out of 5 eggsD.O.A.

This review is from: Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD10EFRX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: None.....D.O.A.

Cons: D.O.A.

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't initialize. I didn't have a chance to try the drive out until after the 30-day NewEgg return period so I sent it back to WD. They replaced it with a refurb. Never again.

3 out of 5 eggs3 out of 4 isn't great

This review is from: Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD10EFRX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Perform as expected when not DOA

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: Ordered 4 of these drives for a RAID 5 NAS configuration and 1 of the 4 drives was DOA right out of the package. I hope the overall reliability is better than the initial reliability?!

I'll write more in depth as more time passes.
