WD Red 3TB NAS Hard Disk Drive - 5400 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD30EFRX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: NAS specific drive
Runs cooler than the Green drives it replaced
High capacity

Cons: Ordered two and one was bad out of the box. Still waiting for replacement. Ordered two others and they both arrived and worked fine so 1 out of four so far where bad. Newegg does not do a great job of packing these. Two came loose and two came packed very well.

Other Thoughts: Installed these drives in a Synology DS212+ NAS. They work great and run cooler than the WD Green drives they replaced.

5 out of 5 eggs One Awesome NAS 06/17/2012

This review is from: Synology DS712+ Diskless System Network Storage

Pros: Super fast
Ability to use almost any hard drive with the NAS
Great GUI
Easy to set up and configure

Cons: None, maybe the price

Other Thoughts: This is the best NAS I have ever used. I am coming from a Buffalo Terastation III. This blows it away. With Buffalo you cannot chage the drives to larger ones (not recommended by Buffalo) and the 712+ is significantly faster. A backup that used to take about 30 minutes is now taking about 6 minutes. I can't belive how much faster this NAS is. Very recommended.

Synology DS212+ Diskless System DiskStation High-Performance 2-bay All-in-1 NAS Server
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy to set up and install.
Great GUI.
Ability to use high speed HDs of almost any manufacturer.

Cons: The price.

Other Thoughts: This is a great NAS. I am using it to replace a Buffalo unit that I have had for some time. The Buffalo is good but this one is great. I liked the fact that I could use just about any hard drive I wanted in this unit. I got it up and running in a few minutes and love the GUI. I could probably spend hours just learning and trying all the great features. I just wish it was less expensive.
