2 out of 5 eggsPoor reliability

This review is from: WD Se WD2000F9YZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive

Pros: Cost effective. Long warranty. Raid compatible.

Cons: Slow transfers. Loud noise while reading or writing. Poor reliability.

Other Thoughts: Used 2 of these drives in a Raid 1 storage array. After only a couple weeks the IRST alerted me that the array was degraded. I tested the drive on a standalone system outside of Raid and confirmed it was defective. For 5 year reliability, my confidence is shaken. I do however like the RE models. Also, WD has a very smooth warranty process. I even got upgraded to a 4TB drive. Coincidentally, this also forced me to buy another WD SE 2TB drive to match my current array.

3 out of 5 eggsOk drive

This review is from: WD Se WD2000F9YZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive

Pros: Booted up with no problem and good performance for an HDD.

Cons: LOUSY drive. Clicking and rattling must be at least twice as loud as my former Caviar Blue. What I've read on forums though is that the direct contact of the HDD with the case might be amplifying the problem. Will attempt the popular bungee mod to dampen the sound.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent drives

This review is from: WD Se WD2000F9YZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive

Pros: Quiet
Reliable 24/7/365 Operation
Runs Cool compared to Consumer drives

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: These drives are absolutely excellent ive never owned enterprise grade drives but they are definitely worth the couple extra buckx. I ordered 4 Drives for two raid 1's and 1 spare drive for total of 5. Clean zero formatted each one 3 times and ran disk check and WD Smart Full test. I had zero issues. Solid drives. All had 0 hours when received.

Highly recommend these if your looking for solid drive with 5yr warranty.

Currently my oldest drive i have is hitachi deskstar 1tb with 25500 hours on it - Hope these make it that far haha.

3 out of 5 eggsBought four/returning One

This review is from: WD Se WD2000F9YZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive

Pros: - Inexpensive Enterprise drives
- 64mb Cache
- 7200RPM
- rated higher than segment competition
- 5yr Warranty

Cons: - lower MTBF than most Enterprise HDD's
- suspect that cost savings is found in cheaper parts
- out of the box 1 HDD failed due to bad sectors

Other Thoughts: These drives will be used in raid 10. Even though they are built to be used in a raid I firmly believe it is critical that you do a multiple pass read/write to the HDD's before building your raid and writing data. It is the old school equivalent of a burn in. Writing and reading the data back will determine if you got a good, marginal or bad disk and save you numerous headaches down the road. I'd also recommend that you buy at least one extra disk when planning on building -- think of it as a spare tire.

1 out of 5 eggsJump Thru The Hoop

This review is from: WD Se WD2000F9YZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive

Pros: I don't know of any Pros yet. My PC won't boot with the drive hooked up. I tried everything and can't even get a chirp to POST. If pressed to list ONE Pro, it would be the bubble pouch the drive was shipped in.

Cons: This drive is finicky about native SATA controllers. WD site is horrid trying to resolve this problem. They tried to explain the SATA jumpers with a pic of a PATA drive. Maybe they meant to write PATA and I was supposed to read their mind. No mention of this drive in the knowledge base and NO instructional markings on the drive, like older drives had. I think peeps are losing their minds, overall.

Other Thoughts: I tried to jumper pins 1 & 2, then 5 & 6... No go, but that is based on jumpers on older drives, per the WD site. Should be the same, but who knows what changes a secret cult made to this drive. As I write this, the drive is formatting on an older machine, while I'm shopping for SATA cards for the newer intended target machine. Lost a day of sanity due to this HDD. This disk better be the cream of the crop, and WD needs to wise up in the "support" dept. Plenty of instructions on hooking the cables up. What an insult.
