Pros:

I can confirm these drives work with the WDTLER utility to give better error handling when used in a RAID configuration. One should never consider running these drives in a RAID configuration without enabling TLER to limit internal error recovery to 7 seconds. This is a very simple procedure - Google WDTLER for more information, WDTLER.ZIP for the utility.

Cons:

None so far, but it will take days to build the array (6 drives in a RAID6 configuration on a QNAP TS-809 Pro). I will report any problems.

Other Thoughts:

I normally purchase drives elsewhere because of past problems with damaged drives from Newegg due to poor packaging. I was pleasantly surprised to find these drives packaged with twice as much bubble wrap as usual with no exposed corners. I hope this is a policy change for all drives and not just the expensive ones. For my next hard disk purchase I will give Newegg another shot!
