This review is from: WD Se WD4000F9YZ 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Datacenter Capacity HDD
If handled reasonably, these appear to be good drives ... even though they will throw non-recoverable errors at lower temps than WD Red drives (Se can operate at 50 degC, Red up to 70 degC).
There's a distinct trend of sloppy packaging reported. A WD selling point of this drive is the long factory burn-in. Drives exhibiting battle-scars on delivery? No thanks. I'd rather the drives be well-packed, even if the trip here seems to be via slow boat on a long river in Brazil.
That outlet that generally sits on your order for a week, unless you pay extra? Hah. Order on a Saturday, and then try to cancel the order Sunday night. Your drives will be on the truck on Monday morning. No fuss. No muss. Just accept the drives when they arrive ... well packaged, and live on arrival.
