3 out of 5 eggs Dell D430 Battery 09/08/2015

This review is from: New Poder® 6 Cell Battery for Dell Latitude D420, D430

Pros: Priced right, performs as expected if using without docking station

Cons: Note that by using this battery you will not be able to use the Dell docking station. This battery is too thick at the bottom to snap into the station. Big disapointment

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

Pros: The reviews were solid in favor of WD Red drives vs other brands

Cons: I ordered 3X3TB WD Red drives on March 1. As of today all three have failed and been returned for replacement. The replacement. I've gone through a nightmare of a month doing emergency backups and replacements. The drives act as a trio of FreeNAS ZFS RaidZ1 volume where the Raid can handle the failure of one, but not two drives, As soon as the first drive failed, (four hours after installation) I did not have a spare so immediately ordered a forth drive aand sent the failed drive back to Newegg for replacement. A month later the two remaining drives from my first order began to fail. That is when things got hectic. I am now returning these two drives to WD for replacement. Eventually I will have two spares. So I guess what I am saying is keep a few spares if you plan to use WD NAS drives.

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd review of WD 3TB Red drives.
This same server has a trio of very old Seagate 500gb drives I scrounged up while putting this system together. THESE inexpensive commodity drives have been sailing along without a whimper. I'm glad I had this 2nd ZFS Raid1 installed as it acts as a backup for the Western Digital drives.

WD Red 3TB NAS Desktop Hard Disk Drive - Intellipower SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EFRX

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Don't have many compliments

Cons: I have a FreeNAS 9.1,2.1 file server with two volumes consisting of three drives each. I have had no difficulty with the three 500gb Seagate volume. The volume with three WD Red NAS drives confuses me. I have already replaced one that failed after only four hours. The console is now telling me to replace two more WD Red NAS drives.
