Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD30EFRX 3TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: These drives seem to work well when not DOA. Slightly cheaper than the WD Black drives I normally use.

Cons: First two I ordered came in air pillow packs on each drive and air pillows in the box, best packing I've ever seen for hard drives. The second two (received yesterday) were the in the worst packed box I have ever received from NewEgg, bad enough that I took pictures . When I picked up the box, the drives shifted to one side and I nearly dropped it. When opened, the drives were just in ESD wrap and bouncing around inside an oversized box. The pillow wrap only had two intact cells out of eight and was far, far insufficient for the box. I suspect this was a prime factor in one of the drives being DOA and I'm afraid the other will fail shortly. One drive booted and checked ok, the other booted with a spin noise and clicks and failed upon the second boot. BIOS doesn't even see that drive now. Failed drive is being sent back under RMA and it still ticks me off that I have to pay for shipping a defective drive back.

Other Thoughts: NewEgg really needs to improve and get consistant with their packing methods.
