Pros:

Decent storage for the cost

Cons:

2 bad out of 5, No Quality control

Other Thoughts:

I ordered 5 for a raid 5 NAS. Came bubblewrapped in a hardrive Styrofoam hold so packaging wasn't too bad however 1 was DOA and 1 Didn't make it through the testing phase (errored out). Then had to spend a ton of time trying to get replacement drives in decent time. Does WD test these drives from the looks of other reviewers it appears they don't. Shame on them taking the easy way out and making the customer do the testing for them. Although it will hurt them in the end.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer, we are very sorry to hear that your drives did not function so soon after they were delivered. Please note that all Western Digital products are tested and determined to meet WD’s stringent quality standards before they are shipped to our resellers. There are many variables that could affect the drives integrity between leaving our warehouses prior to being installed in a NAS or computer system.
Please contact us and indicate your Newegg experience at 1 (855) 559-3733, or via our support website at: http://support.wdc.com/contact/contact.asp?lang=en&ct=wdred for any questions you may have.
