SAMSUNG D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It came on when I powered it up, that's about it.
One thing to note: My beef is not with the actual Hard Drive that is inside but rather the hardware/firmware of the enclosure.

Cons: The enclosure will disconnect itself when under load, copying files. Needed to cycle the power to bring it back online after which it would do the same thing over. I bought this drive for a main backup to my Synology NAS.. I made sure all hibernation options were off in the NAS. I tested the same procedure with another 2TB drive that I have and no problems at all. I returned this drive after 12 hours of testing and repeated failures.

Other Thoughts: I am a biomedical technologist specializing in medical imaging equipment and I deal with computers and digital hardware everyday, stay away from this drive. And to top off my frustration, I realized afterwards that I would have to pay shipping from my own pocket to return the enclosure back to newegg for a refund.. I will not be buying anything else from newegg.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great for NAS home storage. Seems to run cool.

Other Thoughts: Using this drive in my Synology NAS with attached 2TB usb drive (in a fire box)
Going on 6 months and this combination has been flawless so far.

Synology Disk Station DS110j Diskless System Budget-friendly 1-bay NAS Server for Personal and Home Use
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet, good fan cooling options, spin-down of all HDs even the external USB ones.
Many many cool options (addon packs)

Cons: Very slow to create thumbnail pics of your photo library unless you use the uploader on a connected PC (no biggy)

second camera licence is way overpriced if using the camera security option.

Other Thoughts: As a local NAS data storage and auto backup system, this thing shines, I would buy another one in a heartbeat.
