NETGEAR ReadyNAS 516 6-Bay Network Attached Storage Diskless (RN51600)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: One point I failed to mention in my other review: The Tool-less hard drive tray.

This tray is real step forward in ease of use. No screws or tools needed to place a drive in, or remove a drive from the tray. An additional and very cool feature is the ability of this tray to also mount 2.5 in HDDs or 2.5 inch SSDs. (2.5 in drives, do need mounting screws.)

Cons: There is a release button that allows the tray to be pulled from the NAS frame. That is the same button that releases the drive from the tray. So if you hold down the release button while pulling the tray out, the drive will separate from the tray. Best to press the release button just long enough for the handle to pop out. Then grab it to remove the tray.

Other Thoughts: Better yet, I just put one mounting screw in each tray just to be sure.

1 out of 5 eggs How the mighty have fallen! Part 2: 05/28/2013

This review is from: WD Red 3TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EFRX

Pros: Nice Red label
Runs cool
Great Adverts

Cons: Very poor quality control.

Other Thoughts: See Part 1 for the back story.

Today’s update. I contacted WD’s special Red support line (US: 855-559-3733). With the tech we determined that indeed the drives are defective. One has excessive vibration, and there are lots of bad blocks on the others. WD is willing to replace the drives with what they call ‘Recertified’ drives. Here is WD’s copy from the warranty form:
Recertified Products
WD recertified products may consist of customer return units and may be repaired. All products are tested and determined to meet WD's stringent quality standards before they are sold as recertified. Please note that some recertified items may have marks, scratches, or other slight signs of wear.
Stringent Quality Standards... Hmmm, well, if they are so stringent, why are there so many returns. However, for new drives that have yet to be placed in service, that is pretty poor. And, yes I realize that is the policy, for all to read. But, I paid for new drives, I should get new drives.

So I contacted Newegg. And, as usual for Newegg, they came through with flying colors. NE will RMA the drives, and ship new. So the saga continues. I will update on the new set of drives after I have them in hand.
