1 out of 5 eggsuses a 29 pin SAS connector

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD1001FYYG 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: don't know of any

Cons: To clarify my earlier review: after a lot more research, I figured out that this drive uses a 29 pin SAS connector. If you want to use it on a SATA disk controller, you need a 29 pin SAS to SATA adapter.

But their documentation should state this - 29 pin SAS connectors aren't all that common. And their tech support people should know what kind of connector they put on their drive.

1 out of 5 eggspick something else

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD1001FYYG 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: don't know of any

Cons: I can't use this drive. They have a special 22 pin sata connector on the back that cannot use regular sata power and data cables. It also cannot use a 22 pin sata connector either. I spent over a half hour on the phone with Western Digital, and they cannot even tell me what kind of connector is on the back of the drive, let alone what sort of adapter to buy to hook it up.

Other Thoughts: If Western Digital is going to use a non-standard cable, they should tell customers ahead of time and be able to answer such a basic question when customers call.

5 out of 5 eggsSAS is not the same as SATA

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD1001FYYG 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Newegg's return process. I just learned that SAS is not a different variation of SATA but the SCSI version of the newer SATA type connector. I went through the RMA process and it is great, hence the reason for the 5 golden eggs. I filled out the online RMA form, clicked the link to purchase the UPS shipping label, took the box to “The UPS Store” and when I got home the tracking info shows that the package is checked in at the store waiting for pickup.

Cons: Due to my ignorance I have to purchase the correct SATA drive.

Other Thoughts: Check out “sanslos” Feedback for the “SilverStone SD01B Aluminum / Plastic 2.5" & 3.5" Black eSATA, SAS dual-lane External Hard Drive Pad / Docking Station” (Item#: N82E16817256074), he removed my ignorance about SAS.

4 out of 5 eggsBe Aware that these are 4k sector drives

This review is from: Western Digital RE WD1001FYYG 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: This is my first install of this model drive, they have been known to be good quality but cannot give an honest opinion.

Cons: These are 4k sector drives, they are not compatible with Windows Server 2003, also they are prone to performance issues with any Windows Server OS prior to Windows Server 2012.

Hyper-V can present them as 512e drives but you do have overhead related to the 512k emulated sector size and 4k physical sector size.

Other Thoughts: the sector size should be noted in the specs, I would not have bought these drives had I known they were 4k sector drives as they were bought in a disaster recovery situation where we need to restore a windows 2003 server.
