HGST/Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 HUA723020ALA641 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: All 4 worked fresh from the bubble-wrap..

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: All 4 have between 20,000 - 30,000 power-on hours. Sounds like a lot, but the power-cycle counts are < 50. Translation: enterprise-installed drives from a large data center.. For comparison, I have a good dozen Hitachi 500GB drives with < 20 power-on cycles and 70,000 + hours (yes, 7+ years continuous power-on) also running fine on various systems in several locations.

Truth is, if it came from a well-cared-for data-center environment, and it lights up fine, it might just outlast a new retail-grade drive. YMMV -- I had a new 3TB drive fall over completely in less than 6 months.

Two caveats: I do run RAID mirrored pairs and hotspares-- everything dies eventually. And second, as enterprise drives, these run very warm. I would not run mine in a non-fan-cooled sata-to-usb enclosure, or an HTPC with a quiet (aka wimpy) fan, or anywhere without decent airflow. And if not RAIDed, I'd be very diligent about backups. But then not having backups is asking for trouble anyway.

5 out of 5 eggs Works well 06/13/2014

This review is from: QNAP TS-212P-US Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Works very well, both out of the box and after tinkering with it. Supports ssh, opkg/ipkg.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: QNAP likes their users -- this has ssh capability out of the box. Supports opkg extensions so adding more functionality is a snap for linux geeks. Decent user forum at

Pros: Does what it should

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Not much else to say -- it's a hub. I use it with Linux exclusively, so I can't speak to any other operating system compatibility.
