So far working as it should 2/15/2020 1:47:25 PM

Pros: Large capacity drive

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: This is currently still outside of my Desktop PC being tested in a USB 3 HD caddy. I must say that the transfer speeds of data from my internal drives is faster than I expected so far. Will test for about 2 weeks before putting it inside to replace a 3Tb drive.

Great NAS drive 2/15/2020 8:26:28 AM

Overall Review: I bought four of these to use in a Synology DS918+. All of them are working without issue. Usable space in a RAID5 configuration is 16.4TB. I plan to buy at least one more to have a hot swap drive.

NAS Upgrade 2/11/2020 11:39:49 AM

Pros: This is a solid drive. I purchased two of these as an upgrade for my Lenovo (Iomega) ix2-dl NAS. Each drive is packed by the manufacturer in a smaller box that allows some give during shipment. Thumbs up to that.

Overall Review: Other thoughts for those with an ix2 or similar Lenovo / Iomega device. Upgrading from two smaller mirrored drives was a process (in my case, 2 x 2TB --> 2 x 4TB).
1. Backup everything on the NAS.
2. Install one new drive, let it mirror. NAS capacity will be that of the smaller drive.
3. Install second new drive, let it mirror again. NAS capacity will still be the capacity of one of your old drives.
4. Break mirror and set to RAID 0, you will now have access to full capacity of both drives combined.
5. Re-establish RAID 1 mirror, you will now be using the full capacity of each drive.
6. Copy back your data to the NAS.
