So far so good... 07/26/2010
I'm a freelance photographer and desktop support rep at a major fortune 500 company...I did a ton of research as well as speaking with my server team about which drives to buy. While researching, I discovered that all brands / drives have a certain amount of failure rate or have the possibility of being DOA. It's just the way it goes, no matter what brand you're looking at. Luckily for me, this wasn't the case with these drives. I ordered two of them, the drives were in original boxes (Which was nice to see) and not loose with just a static bag. NewEgg packaged it well on top of that and it arrived as promised in three days. I slid the drives in my Drobo and configured with no issues. I've seen reviews that they are noisy...but I don't find them to be noisy at all. Quite the opposite, they're quiet, fast, and seem to run cool so far. I'm hoping for longevity...that will be the true test, but so far they're great and I'm quite pleased with them.
None so far...if I had to be nitpicky, the $20 mail-rebate (Per drive) was nice in terms of cost savings, but mail-in's are always a bit of a pain...instant rebate would have been easier, but really not that big of a deal.
I highly recommend these drives so far. NewEgg executed the transaction perfectly and the drives are an incredible value. After rebates...I will have paid $240 for 4 Terabytes of storage. How can you beat that? Pretty amazing...assuming they last. Time will tell...so far, so good.
