1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Packaging == 2 of 3 disks DoA

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4000FYYZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: None, so far.

Cons: I fail to understand how a company named "CA Server Pro" could put three HDDs into a box with a bunch of hard foam and expect them to arrive in a usable condition. These drives were packed into a box solidly with hard foam, guaranteeing that any shock to the outside of the box would be fully transmitted to the drives. I know that expecting the drives to arrive in standard WD drive shipping boxes was a pipe dream, but I did expect them to have some sort of shock protection when shipped. Have these people never heard of bubble wrap, packing peanuts, crumpled up newspaper, anything at all that has some give to it? End result -- two of three hard drives DoA. Clearly this is a recurring problem with these people, given other reviews on Newegg. Hopefully the returns will go well, and someone who has a clue will pack the replacements. Meanwhile, I get to tell my client to wait for their NAS for another week or so.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Enterprise Hard Drive

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4000FYYZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I have purchased several of these drives in my IT consulting business and have yet to have one fail.

Cons: None that I have experienced.

Other Thoughts: This is a good hard drive. You pay a premium for the enterprise build and warranty, but it is much less expensive than dealing with data loss.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Reliable and Warrantied

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4000FYYZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: These are 5 year warrantied from Western Digital. Fast & Reliable.
If you are looking for the manufacturer's warranty you need to buy these drives. The warranty is effective from sale date.

Cons: They are mechanical drives that spin. So they will be louder than SSD's.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4000FYYZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 4T capacity.
Fast.
SATA II
Works in RAID arrays.

Cons: For some insane reason the pegs in Cooler Master HAF 932 drive holders do not fit into the threaded holes. It was possible to slightly expand the inner diameter of threading while keeping it functional for regular screw mounting, however this operation can leave specks of aluminum (I used compressed air to blow all such debris out and away from the board), and should not be necessary for such a device.

It is possible that case designers are wrong in their expectation for inner diameter of the threading, however I have encountered the problem when I had to install these drives.

2 out of 5 eggsSo-So

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4000FYYZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Performance is on par with other drives.

Cons: I have 11 of these installed in a QNAP NAS box, 1 is a hot spare. I've had 3 of them die in the last year. MUCH higher failure rate than other drives.

Other Thoughts: If I were to do this again I'd go with the HSGT drives as they have a FAR lower failure rate per Backblaze.

5 out of 5 eggsHad two of these since June 2014, been running continuously

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4000FYYZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Bought two of these with the StarTech.com dual drive bay (make sure you get ones with chipsets verified to read 4TB drives!). Been using them to store everything, with the dual drives on the dual drive bay, makes 7.2TB. No problems at all.

Cons: None, these cost more because they are made with quality components.

Other Thoughts: I like the bay format more than putting them in a tower, etc. Those always seem to make them so friggen hot, but with the bay, they shed heat nicely.

REMEMBER TO GET BAYS THAT REPORT BEING ABLE TO READ 4TB DRIVES.

1 out of 5 eggsnewegg voided warranty?

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4000FYYZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Bought 3 two years ago, using in SYN 713+ NAS. After testing all three, set one aside as a spare. RAID10

Cons: Bought three from newegg; sent them all back because (surprise) not shipped properly; got three more. two have been working nonstop for 2 years; but recently, after a vacation/shutdown, volume came up degraded, smart test failed, drive went downhill after that. Popped in my spare and keeping fingers crossed.

Now trying to get the failed disk repaired, WD says my warranty is void? Its supposed to be five years?

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4000FYYZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Got 2 drives almost 2 years ago. They work. Work very well.

They have over 450 days of work time and have not failed me once.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I use the drives for Video and VFX work daily, caching large amount of data and they simply keep on working, what else could you ask for?
