4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: WD Red Pro 3 TB NAS Hard Drive WD3001FFSX up to 16 bay: 3.5-inch SATA 6, 64MB Cache

Pros: These are good drives for the long run.

Cons: Bought two for Raid 1 in a WD EX4 NAS box. One failed within a few hours - after moving onto it about a half TB of video. It's going back to Newegg for replacement. I've had similiar experience with other WD Reds, but once the infantile failures are cleaned up they're fine.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good disks - perfect for NAS

This review is from: WD Red Pro 3 TB NAS Hard Drive WD3001FFSX up to 16 bay: 3.5-inch SATA 6, 64MB Cache

Pros: Disks were easy to install in Synology 214+ chassis.. both were packed well, and work perfectly. Very quiet drive operation.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you're thinking of getting NAS such as a Sinology system, I recommend these Western Digital Red Pro 3TB disks. They work very well.

5 out of 5 eggsWD Red Pro 3TB

This review is from: WD Red Pro 3 TB NAS Hard Drive WD3001FFSX up to 16 bay: 3.5-inch SATA 6, 64MB Cache

Pros: Fast, quiet (for enterprise class drives), stays pretty cool under heavy load (42C) in our server rack-mount chassis with 12x of these running, price per TB

Cons: This is more of a con in general about hdd drives today.

Drives are getting to the sizes that when one fails, it takes a LONG time to resync the arrays leaving data at risk during the resync. And yes I know anyone who is in data center IT has multiple copies of things in different computers and off-site, but those still don't help the whole "takes forever to restore / resync" issues of today's large drives/arrays.

Other Thoughts: Watch out for Shoprunner shipping!!! Sometimes you get what you pay for. The first set of drives we received looked directly like the box out of Ace Ventura's Pet Detective opening scene! If I could attach a picture of the box I would...the top was crashed down to about 1/2 height, 3 of the 4 sides were caved in...needless to say, NONE of the first set of drives was functional with every one of them exhibiting the classic buzz/click from a drive with a stuck head on a platter inside. 10 stars to Newegg for the free two-way shipping and issuing out replacement drives as soon as UPS had scanned the RMA tracking lable into their system to replace all of the drives that were obviously damaged in shipping with no fault on Newegg's part. The drives were individually bubble packed with additional bubble packs filling the space in the box which should have been more than enough if the box had been handled with even an ounce of care from the shipping company.

We replaced 12x 2TB Seagate drives with these because in the past two years sense we bought the Seagate drives, 2 have failed and 2 more have had issues where they randomly drop out of the array and cause the whole thing to enter degraded mode before the drives randomly show back up. The Seagates also seem to run a bit warm at 52~54C under load in our rack.

We are using an Adaptec 7805H card for dual raid10 (4x drives per raid10), Intel Xeon E3-1246, 32GB Kingston ecc ram, Intel C226 based motherboard (providing the other 4x SATA ports for OS and VM drives) inside a Rosewill RSV-L4412 4U rack-mount chassis.
