1 out of 5 eggs Not looking good so far... 02/20/2014

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

Pros: Lots of storage and features at a reasonable price.

Cons: 3 of the 8 I ordered arrived DOA. Two wouldn't even spin up, with one of them just clicking. The third spun up but locked solid every SATA bus I plugged it in to, to the point where the machines wouldn't finish POST or boot unless it was unplugged.

Other Thoughts: I'm worried now. These drives were supposed to be the upgrade for my NAS. Are the other 5 ticking time bombs?

What's up, Western Digital? I get the bathtub curve, but 37.5% of my order being DOA is a little unsettling...

Kudos to Newegg for setting up an advance replacement. Y'all rock!
