Mostly good? 9/24/2020 1:20:36 PM

Pros: WD RED are the mainstay, go-to drives in our file server. Typically, very solid hardware, at a reasonable price.

Cons: Purchased these as replacements for a couple WD Red drives that died, about 8 months off of warranty. ;(
But they live a hard life - I don't expect them to live forever.

Overall Review: In terms of shopping experience: 5 eggs for sure. Great prices, and Newegg processed and delivered my order fast - which was highly appreciated when replacing critical file-server hardware.

Meh... 9/16/2020 12:36:48 PM

Pros: - high capacity

Cons: - runs hot (43-47 idle, 50+ °C operating in 22-25° C ambient temp)
- 1/2 drives showed a few bad sectors within 5 days... not major but a little concerning

Overall Review: I upgraded our home file server (finally) to 2x WD80EFAX in RAID 1 from 2x 750GB WD Green in RAID 1 and a 2TB WD red for non-critical data. The greens were going strong since 2007ish but were seriously stuffed, the 2TB red has been going strong as well.

Went with the 8TB since it's the to avoid the SMR shenanigans, though not sure I would have noticed the difference in my application. The extra capacity is great and should last a long time, but with many bits come... UREs. 1/2 drives started reporting bad sectors within a few days and is going back for exchange. Maybe not unexpected or indicative of a future failure but wasn't comfortable seeing the error count go up this early.

Time will tell how the other drives perform. I did try two IronWolfs after seeing the high temps from these, but the IWs seemed to do worse right out of the (Sea-)Gate (ha!)

Sticking with WD for now, does seem like these newer drives need more careful monitoring, or I'm just more aware of it now. Newegg gets high marks for its customer service on all of it.

I bought this drive# WD60EFRX love it the time it work 9/14/2020 1:29:01 PM

Pros: Not a lot of positive with the WD warranty experience this time. The hd went bad and WD send me a WD60EFAX as a replacement. I use to use and trust WD but now, its not easy to love them anymore after that. Being screw-up is never fun

Cons: WD60EFAX send as a warranty replacement :(

Overall Review: Warranty replacement should be equal or better product.......not with the cheapest one

Works as expected 9/11/2020 4:26:54 PM

Overall Review: Bought five to upgrade my Synology DS1515. All five were plug and play in the NAS, with an extended SMART test passing with flying colors for all the drives. Given that the previous 4Tb WD red drives worked without any issues for five years, I am keeping my fingers crossed that the new drives have the same reliability.

Great product 9/7/2020 7:19:58 AM

Pros: Replaced a 4 year drive in my NAS that runs 24/7. Will buy another one soon before the second drive fails.

Cons: I love Newegg, have been using them for all of my computer products for years and used to get everything within delivered in 3 days. Now UPS and sometimes FedEx uses the USPS Surepost and it always an EXTRA 1-3 days to get product delivered. If it is too big to fit in the mailbox it ends up in the middle of my porch because they usually just throw it instead of walking up the steps to place it by the door.

Overall Review: Highly recommend this product, I ha e had very few issues with WD drives.

Failed after 6 months 9/1/2020 10:32:50 AM

Overall Review: Purchased two drives new from New Egg and one Failed after 6 months in a Synology NAS. Sectors began to fail. Western Digital said the drives were manufactured more than three years ago! New Egg directed me to third party that took the product back and refunded my money. In the end I am whole but what a pain!
