Great Drive 03/12/2014
Great speed, price was great around the holidays got 10 of them for 189 each to help complete 50TB raid for my home theater setup. The drives were OEM but packed in the factory shipping box which had them secured very well. Generally this is what has lead people to having bad experiences since Newegg is know for bad shipping practices with Hard drives. I am guessing since i ordered 10 at a time, that kept them from being wrapped in bubble wrap and loosely shipped in boxes. I have had them up 99% of the time since 12/9 and have done checks on them weekly with no drive going bad or showing issues. Set up in raid 50 crystal mark showed sustained sequential 810MB writes 1085MB reads through lsi mega raid card... So far I have been pleased with black drives. I have owned many over the years and knock on wood have had great experiences with them compared to my luck with other drives. I definitely would buy again but waiting for price to come back down from the current listing.
They do run warm but i have plenty of cooling for them in my raid enclosure.
