Didn't work for me 6/28/2020 4:30:15 AM

Overall Review: These drives didn't work for me. I ordered two drives which I intended to use as a RAID1 array in a Terra Master enclosure connected to a Mac Mini. After installing and formatting the drives, I found that they were: a) exceptionally noisy, b) slow to write data, and c) unable to complete the transfer of large data files. I subsequently removed the two drives from the enclosure and reformatted them individually on a SATA docking station where I continued to have the same sorts of problems with noise and with large file transfer. I benchmarked these drives against two other drives (a WD 1TB Blue and a Seagate IronWolf 6TB) neither of which had any problems with noise or large files.

The WD Red 6TB drives were shipped in their plastic wrappers but without the larger standard packaging one might find on a store shelf. The box they came in was small and had some bubble wrap, but not enough to fully cushion the drives. It is possible they were damaged in shipping.

I don't know if this will sour me on WD in the future. I have used many WD drives in the past without any major problems, but this is the first time I've used their Red drives. Since having these problems I have read that some of these large capacity WD Red drives have problems working properly in RAID arrays. I will be returning these drives and for my current application I am going forward with the Seagate IronWolf drives instead.

Died after two years :( 6/26/2020 8:09:38 AM

Pros: silent; specially once it is dead

Cons: for a nas hdd, this is a disappointing performance

Overall Review: I might have been really unlucky, I would try an other brand next time. Despite the warranty, I have no visibility about what would happen with the data, and the home made diagnostic procedure from WD is not ideal in 2020, it will require you to have a setup where you can actually plug the hard drive in a computer (an good old desktop), which I don't have.
