Pros: Cheap @ $40 each WD RE3 Enterprise quality drive Fast enough

Cons: 2 of the initial 4 failed extended tests Short Warranty (30 day RMA to Newegg Replacement ONLY!) These drives do not have a 90 day manufacture warranty as listed.

Overall Review: Good drives for the price. We should all know these are used and have 3+ years power on time on them. Other than that it should be a good drive for the price. These DO NOT have a 90 warranty from WD because they are OEM drives. They are the same drive as a WD RE3 but appear to have a Dell firmware on them. These drives will also not qualify for the WD customer loyalty program, not that that really matters. As with all hard drives these should be tested before trusting them with data. All drives passed the initial SMART test. This is likely all the testing that was done prior to reselling the drive. Download the WD Data Lifeguard program and run an extended test. For me the extended test took around 11 hours per drive. I ordered 4 drives and 2 of them failed the extended test. On drive failed the extended test a few hours in to testing. The other failed in the first 10 minutes. The error code for both was "08 Too many bad sectors" this is a sign that the remaining life of the drive is limited. Newegg was great with the RMA process and the 2 replacement drives passed the extended test. Over all a good product at a good price

Nice size, looks like a small Subwoffer.

Pros: Size price simple design 2x 2.5 drive 1x 3.5 drive

Cons: Difficult to build in

Overall Review: You can fit a Coolmaster 212 Evo in it if you don't use the 2.5" drives. You should look for a smaller cooler than a 212. I needed to remove the rear plate assemble it then put it back together. For a tight build I would recommend partially disassembling the case before you build in it.
