RE2 Rock 03/23/2008
RE2 Drives are ROCK SOLID. I've had 8, 400GB RE2's running in my RAID box for over a year, ZERO problems. They run cool, they are work horses and I can't wait for the 1TB drives to come down a little more in price so I can replace all my 400GB Drives with 1TB Drives and make the 400GB's backups vs Near online storage as they are now.
Cons? They aren't 2TB. Really, these drives have been a pleasure to work with. The most solid drives I've ever owned.
I run 8, RE2 - 400GB Drives in a raid 6 config with an Areca 1230 controller. Over 18 months that machine has been up 24/7 and the SMART statistics for the RE2 drives aren't budging. Unlike the boot drive, which has failed 2 times since building this box, which has now been switched over to a solid state. RE2 is in mo opinion, the best drive for your money.. as they will last for many years to come vs cheap drives that run hot and die young.
