This review is from: WD Re 3TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD3001FYYG

Pros: I know that this sounds irrelevant, but they are SO hefty. Picking up one of these drives instantly reveals a big difference between enterprise and consumer grade. They are heavy - like a gold bar (or maybe a polished metal block).

Cons: I ordered SAS instead of the SATA by accident lured by the price, but I loved the feel of the drive so much that I doubled down on my purchase to get the necessary RAID card and SFF-8482 cables to drive them.

This review is from: WD Re 3TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD3001FYYG

Pros: This is more of a public service announcement.

There is a new firmware VR07 for this drive that replaces VR02 and has a lot of bug fixes. It's not listed anywhere on WD's website, and they insisted that it did not exist over multiple phone calls.

Models affected:
WD4001FYYG-01SL3W
WD3001FYYG-01SL3W
WD2001FYYG-01SL3W
WD1001FYYG-01SL3W

Cons: WD support is not well. They should really list firmware updates on their website or have some record of them. This update has existed since before June 1, 2013, and still... no mention of it anywhere.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat server drives

This review is from: WD Re 3TB Datacenter Capacity Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SAS 6Gb/s 32MB Cache 3.5 inch WD3001FYYG

Pros: Good performing drives! Am using 6 on an HP P410 in raid 5 and get very good performance. So far no failures and none were DOA.

SAS is worth the few extra $$ since the error rate is 10^15 instead of 10^14 with SATA so it is a little less likely to encounter an uncorrectable error during a rebuild. (All drives do fail eventually...)

Cons: cost??
