Pros: Large capacity and fast specifications, 3 year warranty. Worked well migrating from Seagate 3tb into this and expanding size with QNAP. Happy so far.
Cons: Temps run a little high, about 115 - 117 under normal work load, higher if doing something more intense. Advise good ventilation.
Other Thoughts: Drives I received in July 2016 were manufactured in January 2015. But warranty info was essentially up to date. Do not expect the ease of a WD warranty claim, a little more complicated.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Quiet and works
Other Thoughts: Updated 8-12-2016. Bought a second one of these and installed it in an external enclosure connected to my Directv HR54 Genie DVR. Works without any problems in record and playback. Should provide 800 hours of HD recording according to Directv. This drive is designed to be able to record and stream I believe up to 24 HD cameras at the same time and eliminate lagging and frame drop. So far I have run 5 1080p cameras on this drive without degradation. Except with my software, each camera uses about 2MB/sec write speed to drive, so 5 is only 10 MB/sec writing. Also, I am running a core I7 and SSD boot drive, so there is power. One caveat I have learned is that your software is most critical. I have tossed away software that uses up to 6 times more CPU resources than the software I settled upon. so take that into consideration when designing your entire system.READ FULL REVIEW
