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

Pros: These drives run pretty cool and good with a 3 year warranty (and an extra fourth year with most credit cards), great deal with rebates and sale prices.

Even after days of constant writes, they did not exceed 105F; they are rated to close to 160F. Let's see how much they heat up in the summer. But the NAS fan runs very low to keep these cool, I would assume the NAS fan would speed up if the drives get to to 120F and up ... either way, low speed and cool running, which I am hoping will improve durability.

In the past month no error despite a NAS crash and 2 day long data rebuild

Cons: I get about 22 load cycles/hr. So it will hit the 600k load cycle rating in about 3 years of constant use, just when the warranty runs out. They do not support the APM (-B) hdparm parameter if you want to try to manually disable APM in an attempt to decrease load cycles

Not a good deal at their regular price.

NETGEAR ReadyNAS 104 (RN10400-100NAS) Diskless System Network Storage
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Not recommended 12/16/2013

This review is from: NETGEAR ReadyNAS 104 (RN10400-100NAS) Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Inexpensive, easy setup, quiet fan with low power HDs, expandable RAID

Cons: Claims to have a lot of features but the entire app region is broken. Installed apps don't uninstall and cause a lot of disk activity. CLaims hot swap but adding a drive to X-Raid crashed the NAS. Called support and was instructed to pull power as no response any other way. "reshaping" for est. 20h after power but data accessible, Fan started making noise after a week ... a gentle tap makes noise go away

Other Thoughts: Spend the extra $100 and get a Synology. I really made a mistake on this one

WD My Book Live 1TB Personal Cloud Storage
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Quick and easy 04/12/2011

This review is from: WD My Book Live 1TB Personal Cloud Storage

Pros: Very quick and easy install. Very quiet

Cons: Reformatting takes better part of a day. Pretty sure it is a slower HD so it is slow writing files
