This review is from: WD Red WD40EFRX 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" NAS Internal Hard Drive - Bulk
Pros: High capacity, optimized for RAID
Cons: These drives appear to have a high failure rate. Two of four drives received failed. One was DOA and never came up. The second failed to synch into the array.
It is a small sample size, but I didn't expect a 50% failure rate. The Seagate 4TB NAS drives I bought had a 0% failure rate.
Pros: Drive performs well.
Cons: Western Digital will not honor the five year warranty on this item. WD claims my serial number is a one-year warranty item. NewEgg is clear on the "Overview" that this drive carries a five year limited warranty. However, WD will not honor that warranty.
So much for paying more for the "black" drive and a five year warranty.
I specifically bought this product because of the five year warranty. I feel cheated by WD.
The failure rate seems a little higher than expected for a high-end product.
