2 out of 5 eggs 1 of 3 Failed within 3 months 01/19/2014

This review is from: WD Red 3TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EFRX

Pros:

I have a backup....

Cons:

1 of 3 failed in the first 90 days (so far). The other 2 are in testing.

Other Thoughts:

I meticulously test all my new drives for 30 days BEFORE using them. This one initially passed that process but has failed 88 days after receiving it. Now I have to RMA it, pay shipping, and wait for a random REFURBISHED drive to replace it. Unfortunately there's little choice since there doesn't seem to be any drive manufacturer exempt from unreliable hard drives. I have 2 more of these just purchased in the last 2 weeks that are still in testing.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ProtoSD, it is unfortunate that you have experienced a drive failure. Western Digital does rigorously test and verify all of our drives, prior to shipping, with burn-in and diagnostic tests.
