Been good in a 24/7 environment for a year now

Pros: Good drive, been running strong in a mirror array for 1 year now solid. I know its a bit early to post a rave review but no problems at all.

Cons: 3 year warranty. Would have liked to see a 5 on this "class" of drive.

Other Thoughts: Good for home NAS. I wouldn't trust it for more than that if the mfgr is only willing to warranty for 3 years.

Invisible=Excellent

Pros: Silvered it into my headless nas at home for video security, files, music and business. Absolutely no issues or hiccups. Painless.

Cons: None found. Buying a second one to replace current raided drive.

Junk

Pros: I bought this as a second internal desktop drive, specifically for my music and video files. The product description, specs, and price sounded good.

Cons: Intermittent bad sector / index corruption problems over time. Repairable each time but inconvenient. I ended up using an external drive as my authoritative media files copy and this one as a "backup" from which I played the files. Finally this one has died.

Other Thoughts: I've used WD drives in my own builds for years. This is the first one that's failed on me.

Manufacturer Response:
Hi George,

Thank you for choosing WD Red drives and sharing your concerns with us.

The WD Red family of drives are designed and optimized for 24x7 Network-Attached Storage RAID environments. Its NASware technology enables seamless integration, robust data protection and efficient performance for systems operating in NAS with RAID environments. For optimal use, it's best these drives are used with enclosures which are on our tested and approved NAS list located from the link below. You may also want to consult with your NAS manufacturer for firmware updates and ensure this drive is listed on their compatibility list.

“WD Red NAS Hard Drives compatibility list”: https://support.wdc.com/knowledgebase/answer.aspx?ID=9758

For desktop applications such as archiving, we recommend the all-purpose WD Blue and the high-performance WD Black.

“WD Blue - DESKTOP HARD DRIVE”: https://www.wdc.com/en-um/products/internal-storage/wd-blue-pc-desktop-hard-drive.html

“WD Black - PERFORMANCE DESKTOP HARD DRIVE”: https://www.wdc.com/en-um/products/internal-storage/wd-black-desktop.html

It's best to test the drive outside its current controller if the unit is suspected having bad sectors or is functioning abnormally with our Data Lifeguard Diagnostics. You can replace the in-warranty drive if the drive is found to have malfunctioned.

Great so far - Installed in Synology NAS

Pros: Installed on a Synology DS216J NAS. I've read others complaining about noise but I haven't experienced anything yet. I ordered two, both were packaged professionally (not just bubble wrap) - these came in individual boxes with the molded end holders like you might receive working in a data center from a big vendor like IBM. Speed is deceiving, it says 5400RPM but when I looked the model up (WD10ERFX), seems to be variable speed (some kind of intellipower technology) - supposedly these can adjust up to 7200RPM if called upon. Maybe all RED drives have intellipower which is great if your workload calls on it; save on power and get speed when you need it!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Recommended so far.

Purchased 5-31 died 8-18

Pros: Decent write speeds. About what I expected for a 5400rpm drive

Cons: Died after only a few months

Other Thoughts: Ran a few tests the day I got it and everything seemed fine. Went to use my pc today (8-18) and the drive wouldnt work. All tests I ran failed within the first few hundred megabytes. Fails to delete my data off the drive.
