WD Red 3TB NAS Desktop Hard Disk Drive - Intellipower SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EFRX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Decent drive. Runs cooler than Greens or Blues (at least in my machines.) Quiet. Decent price when on sale.....

Cons: My first NAS came with a GREEN drive. I added a RED drive for RAID 1 and eventually replaced the other green drive. Both Red drives failed within 6 months after their warranty period. They don't make drives like they used to.

Other Thoughts: Bought a new NAS that can handle larger drives. Starting out with two of these drives in RAID 1. We'll see how they do.....

WD Green WD10EZRX 1TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This drive is cheap. It generally works. It usually lasts as least through it's warranty period.

Cons: Having said that, this is the only drive I have had that failed while in service. Fortunately it was part of a RAID and the new one I just bought plugged in and synced just fine.

This is not a performance drive. 6.0Gb/s is imaginary.

Other Thoughts: There isn't a single drive made today that I would store archival information. Having said THAT, if you need a cheap non-performance level drive for an in-machine RAID, this works. Just keep the drives cool.

Lenovo Thinkpad L420 Notebook - Intel Core i5-2520M 2.5Ghz - 4GB Ram - 160GB Hard Drive - 14
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Thought I took a gamble on a refurb. What I got was a GREAT machine that does everything I need it to do at a really great price.

Cons: No camera. This is not an issue with the machine or the supplier I used, Surplus Products. It's just that some L models (mine) did not come with a camera. No big deal for me as this is a machine that will live in a closet. If you want one with a camera, look for one that says it has a camera.

Other Thoughts: I've never bought a used machine before. I didn't need one that looked good. I just needed one that worked. It is a small server. It was much cheaper than a desktop and takes up much less space. I wasn't expecting much. What I got exceeded my expectations. This is a pretty fast machine running W7Pro64 with plenty of connectivity and really fast N-WiFi. It has an mSATA slot so you can add am mSATA drive for the OS and use the included SATA drive for data. Found a 120GB mSATA for 39 bucks. It makes this machine scream. Not sure I will buy a refurb anything again, but this machine sure was a good deal.
