Features
Industry's highest capacity nearline drive - WD RE SAS hard drives are available in capacities ranging from 1 TB to 4 TB to suit even the most demanding storage needs.


Highest performance for business-critical applications - WD RE delivers 6 Gb/s transfer rates, sustained sequential data rates of 182 MB/s and high random I/O rates.


Designed for quality and reliability - With a field-tested 1.4 million hour MTBF,
this high performance drive delivers the highest level of reliability for 24x7
operation in up to 100% duty cycle applications.


Dual port, full duplex connectivity - Offers higher reliability, performance and data availability by eliminating single points of failure, designed for leading business-critical Enterprise topologies.


Environmentally conscious - In addition to being RoHS compliant, WD RE is built with halogen-reduced components.

NoTouchramp load technology - The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit.

Dual stage actuator technology - A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track(s). The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.

Vibration Protection - Enhanced RAFF technology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time. The result is a significant performance improvement in high vibration environments over the previous generation of drives.

Multi-axis shock sensor - Automatically detects the subtlest shock events and compensates to protect the data.

Dynamic fly height technology - Each read-write head's fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability.

Ultra compatible

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4001FYYG 4TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Large, Nice Price for Enterprise Class SAS, Fast.
Great reliable drive!

Cons: Orderd 8 from newegg. 1 DOA 2nd died within a week. I believe its because of newegg packaging and shipping.

I ordered 32 of this exact same model from C-D-W and none of them have had any issues and they were packaged much better.

2 out of 5 eggsNot reliable

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4001FYYG 4TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Nice to have 4TB on one drive. Definitely makes the datacenter seem "smaller".

Cons: Purchased 5 of these for a backup appliance. 2 were DoA and 1 more just failed less than a month after being installed.

Other Thoughts: Discontinued already... I'm not surprised.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate your feedback and apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced with the WD RE, as this is not the typical experience with the product. It is unfortunate that you experienced multiple DOA drives, as our drives are all rigorously tested to ensure they are in good working condition before leaving our warehouse. We understand your situation and will gladly replace your in-warranty drive, as we stand by our products and their associated warranties. We would like to investigate the cause relating to the product's defect, and provide you with a replacement.
You may contact us at 1 (800) 275-4932, or via our support website at: http://support.wdc.com/rs/. Please indicate within the online case creation or with the first support agent you speak with, that you are responding to a Newegg review, so we route you and your information to the correct team members.

5 out of 5 eggsExpectations met....so far

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD4001FYYG 4TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: We have sixty of these in a very large array. After about 2 weeks hammering them with tons of I/O to burn them in, no problems.

Cons: Price, but actually not very high at all considering what a vendor like Dell, IBM or HP would sell these at...way north of 1K
