5 out of 5 eggsGood so far

This review is from: WD Red WD60EFRX 6TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" NAS Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Bought 12 and all work perfectly, was surprised I got so many without a single DOA. I think Newegg's great packaging helped.

Each drive was burned in with a 1 pass of zeros then a read & verify to check for errors. None of them had problems. Also did SMART tests before and after without problems.

The drives have been in use for three weeks now. They are about 40% full and I just ran a scrub on them to check the data for issues and that didn't have any problems. I would say they have lived up to my expectations.

Cons: They aren't exactly cheap, but I don't think they are unreasonable. Largest capacity drives always have been a bit more expensive per GB of space. This is true with all technology, the newer and better it is the more expensive it's going to be.

Other Thoughts: Speeds I can't really comment on as they are in a NAS so I don't have single drive performance. Also I used to completely disable the head parking on WD drives, but there were warnings on WD site saying not to use wdidle3 on them so I have left them factory default. After three weeks of use in my NAS they are all around 450 head park count. Which is actually quite low when you consider they are rated for 600000.

4 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

This review is from: WD Red WD60EFRX 6TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" NAS Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 6 TB, low rpm (conserves power), optimized for 24/7 operation. Drive worked and stress tested (preclear) for 60 hours.

Cons: Price a little high, Sweet spot would be around 250-265.

Other Thoughts: Never order batches of hard drives. Order one from one place and another from another. This helps prevent them from dying in multiples which would kill some raid systems.
