2 out of 5 eggsAnother Not happy camper

This review is from: WD Red 1TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD10JFCX

Pros: none since I'm not happy with it.
Thought it would be a nice second HDD for the laptop but it seems to have very erratic behaviour

Cons: After reading for a while it seems to get stuck and lag.
Sometimes I'm writing stuff on the disc and all of a sudden it just disappears from the list of available drives in the laptop

Other Thoughts: Nothing but frustration

Manufacturer Response:

Greetings Fernando G.
It is important to know the WD Red family of NAS Hard Drives are designed and supported for 1-8 Bay NAS (Network Attached Storage) enclosures. For more information related to the features and compatibility for this particular WD Red 2.5” drive, please follow the link below.
“WD Red NAS Hard Drives Product Features”: http://bit.ly/1f0RHLh

We appreciate your feedback, and want you to experience the performance and reliability we’re known for. If your particular laptop has two internal drive bays, you may be interested in our WD Green 2.5” or WD Blue 2.5” drives as a secondary storage. Please follow the links below for more information.
“WD Green Mobile Hard Drives”: http://bit.ly/1QvYnni
“WD Blue Mobile Hard Drives”: http://bit.ly/1P0IzpV

Although WD desktop hard drives should work properly in external enclosures we are not able to provide technical support for drives in this configuration because there are many different external bridgeboard and enclosure manufacturers, each with their own command sets, levels of compatibility, and technical issues. Any additional questions about using a WD hard drive in an external enclosure should be directed to the company that manufactured the enclosure. For any external storage may we suggest either our My Passport or My Book family of drives, please follow the links below for a list of our external drives.

2 out of 5 eggsgood from far, far from good

This review is from: WD Red 1TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD10JFCX

Pros: looks like robust solution for a small pc..carries a good brand and classification. the drive that did work meet the speed specs WD claimed.

Cons: first disk died within the first 2 hours, failed WD own Lifeguard tools testing, it did not finish formatting , then it would not even initialize...I have no idea if they even tested these drives before unloading them on us..Very disappointing,,Marketing hyped up..sadly it was not at all right...pathetic

...had to RMA one of the 2 drives i bought...now I must wait t oget a replacement

Other Thoughts: i should have listened to the comments and stayed clear..WD is not what it used to be for sure....

5 out of 5 eggsMac Mini :o)

This review is from: WD Red 1TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD10JFCX

Pros: Works great for my Mac Mini. I would recommend this to anyone with a mac.

Cons: Hadn't bought sooner.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this for my mac mini server. It has two drive bays. I purchased one to try it out and make sure it would work. Will be ordering second drive soon. Possibly even get one for my PC laptop.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: WD Red 1TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD10JFCX

Pros: None.

Cons: It had the click of death right out of the box. Like everyone else, I don't think we should have to pay for return shipping on a product that was DOA.

Greetings William, we want to extend our sincere apologies for the issue you have experienced. Please note that all Western Digital products are tested and determined to meet WDs stringent quality standards before they are shipped to our resellers. There are many variables that could affect the drives integrity between leaving our warehouses prior to being installed in a computer.

5 out of 5 eggsSet and forget

This review is from: WD Red 1TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD10JFCX

Pros: Fast
Cool
Store data?

Cons: Got one DOA

They occasionally get ATA errors when lots of data is being written. It looks like an issue with the computer and not the drive.

Seem to have some issues with my SATA controller sometimes, but I don't think that's the fault of the drives.

Other Thoughts: I had one come DOA, but that's acceptable and was remedied quickly since I have Newegg Premier.

I rebuilt an old PC as a backup server with two of these in a cloning situation using SnapRAID. They run well enough for this purpose. I'm sure they would really shine an a proper use case rather than my hacked together solution.

1 out of 5 eggsWD Red WD10JFCX IntelliPower Sata 6.0, 2.5" NAS HD

This review is from: WD Red 1TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD10JFCX

Pros: NONE!!!

Cons: Installed in computer, tried to format, showed quick format , I accepted. While trying to use showed disk errors, corrected by Windows. Went back to format, immediately went quick format, back using, more errors, back to format, this time I forced full format. For a 1 TB HD drive it took little time to format. Went to Computer mode from start button to observe hard drives and noted that HD appeared but without showing storage info but the name was faded as though it were fading out of sight. Turned computer off, then on and disk had disappeared. Went to bios, HD had disappeared. Plugged it into another computer, never appeared in bios nor on computer disc display. Just bought an Orico USB3 external 2 disc/3.5"-2.5" docking station, installed station in a computer, placed 2.5 NAS HD in docking station and nothing. Removed 2.5" NAS HD and installed SATA 3.5" with known partitions in docking station and everything showed up on the HD display. placed 2.5" NAS HD in docking station and all HD data previously displayed DISAPPEARED! With the 3.5" HD running beside the 2.5" NAS HD, nothing, not one HD showed up in the HD display. It sure looks very defective. Supposed to be new, too [11Nov 2014].

Other Thoughts: If I could make this assessment with NO EGGS, I'd do it. Since I'm past the 30 day limit, I must now deal with WD. I'd just like a replacement 'cuz I don't like to give up and what should be a good thing.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Love the Performance

This review is from: WD Red 1TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD10JFCX

Pros: I wasn't expecting these hard drives to perform as close to the WD RE4's as they did. These are by far excellent 2.5" drives for a raid system. Excellent read and write speeds

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I didn't understand how "Intellispeed" would work, I thought it was WD's way of saying 5400RPM. They could elaborate a little more on what Intellispeed accomplishes so that die hard WD fans as well as other customers could all understand what speeds to expect. Very fast drive, but the labeling of intellispeed was almost the difference between buying these hard drives and not

1 out of 5 eggsNot a good product.

This review is from: WD Red 1TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD10JFCX

Pros: None yet.

Cons: I have used WD drives forever it seems like. Been monkeying with PC's since the days of the 8086. So when I decided to get me a NAS for home use (QNAP TS-451) I opted for these WD Red 1tb drives. I bought 4 of them to run RAID 5. Received the NAS and drives a few weeks ago. Installed them, started setting up the NAS and immediately getting warnings that drive 4 failed SMART testing. In less than 15 minutes it just completely lays down. Pull it and try it in my desktop to check, won't even pick up in BIOS. Filed an RMA with NewEgg and sent it back. Got the replacement a couple of days ago. Loaded it into slot 4 of the NAS last night and let the unit re-sync overnight (was running the 3 other drives on RAID 5). So I get home from work tonight and the status light on my NAS is blinking red. Log into it and now drive 1 is failing SMART Retired_Block_Count. Still running, but this is ridiculous.

Other Thoughts: So I waited to log a review until I got the first drive that failed replaced. After using dozens of their drives over the years, I gave WD a pass on letting one slip out past QA. Then no sooner than I get it replaced and installed, another one is heading south. That combined with what I read in these reviews says WD is slipping up. They are shipping shoddy product. I am going to contact NewEgg and see what they say about this second unit acting up. The first RMA was painless, but at this point, I'm not feeling real confident in the long term viability of these drives.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: WD Red 1TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 2.5 Inch - WD10JFCX

Pros: quiet,
low power usage,
work

Cons: still a little pricy compaired to 3.5" version

Other Thoughts: I have 4 of these in a raid 0+1 configuration in a corsair 760T case mounted in the four 2.5" "SSD" cages at the front back, giving a useable 1.8_TB redundant (striped and mirrored) array. looks great and opperates how they should

4 eggs cause theres nothing mindblowing about 1TB 2.5" HDD's
