Pros: Affordable SATA drive designed for NAS and always on solutions. Have two running in Netgear NAS for 18 months. Purchased two more for ESXi server. One working very well.
Cons: 1 of 4 2TB drives was DOA, have RMA open with Western Digital.
Other Thoughts: This is the first time I have received a DOA hard drive in the decades I've been in IT. Seemed packaged well, air pillow inside box inside air pillow shipping box. Reading other reviews makes me uneasy about these drives.
I ran full WD Diagnostics on the one drive that is working but got impatient and ran a quick scan on the failed drive. I tested fine so I installed it but then it failed. Full diagnostic scan said there were too many errors and to contact support.
It might take 5 hours but full test a drive but be patient and do so. It might save some headaches in the future.
