failed after less than a year 04/24/2014
fast & quiet
Initially bought 4 of these for a NAS. One came DOA which newegg quickly replaced, another just failed after less than a year.
When putting together another NAS and hearing about their red drives, I was anxious to try them out. At the price they are I would hope they would be more reliable. My 4x2tb WD Green drives have lasted far longer in my other NAS without any problems.
