5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Drive - Maybe Don't Purchase Here? 06/09/2014

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

Pros: quiet

tons of storage (obviously)

I use this in a synology diskstation, and I use it as a media streaming data server / backup station / coordinator for a home security system that I'm running, and it works flawlessly. I stream to my home network and over the internet simultaneously with no issues at all, streaming for friends of mine that I have given access to my server for remote streaming purposes, all the while making constant uploads from a remote home security network.

With all of these applications combined, the end result is that my diskstation is making reads / writes at least 3 times every 5 seconds, 24 hours a day 7 days a week, and I have had no issues.

My diskstation only gets 15 minutes of downtime once a week, and I set that up merely as a precaution because I was concerned I would be stressing the hard drive, but to date the only piece of hardware having issues handling the stress is my garbage router. For bulk file storage, media streaming and data backup, I couldn't recommend any hard drive more highly than this one.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I do my purchasing for tech equipment from several sites, Newegg included, and for some reason it seems like hard drives that get amazing reviews on other sites get extremely poor reviews here.

I noticed this prior to the purchase of this item, and I made my purchase on a site known for handling their packages with a great deal of care, the end result of which is a hard drive working overtime for 6+ months with no failures.

Perhaps these bad reviews have less to do with the device itself and more to do with the transit time from Newegg to the purchaser? I only currently have one drive, and I need to purchase another to run a RAID setup to backup all of my data, but all of my hard drive purchases have been made at places outside of Newegg and none of them have failed.

5 out of 5 eggs Most Used Hardware in House 05/25/2014

This review is from: Synology DS213j Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Quiet

Reliable

Full of features

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Amazing piece of hardware. Bought it to create a data server without having to dedicate a full comouter PSU to it, and it works perfectly. I'm currently running a home security network through it, as well as using it to stream my home media from, both to my home network and through the internet. It has been running nonstop now for 5 months with only 15 minutes of reset time per week with no flaws. I can't even remember how I got by before this device.
