5* Good sound hard drive
Reviewed by Bergamot Eng. on 23/09/2013
Quiet drive.
Smooth installation.
No worries
5* Very satisfactory mid-range disk
Reviewed by Martin Baxter on 21/07/2013
This disk is part of Western Digital's new "Red Caviar" range, which sits between "Green" (basic) and "Black" (higher-spec). The manufacturers suggest that it is well-suited to NAS (network attached storage) use.

I bought two of these to put into my Synology DS209+II (two-bay NAS with RAID1) so to increase its capacity. Installation was fine and the existing data copied across quite quickly (1TB in 3 hours).

Everything is looking good - the NAS now has twice its previous capacity and all looks good.

One caution: due to HDD quoting conventions and other factors, you can only expect to get about 1.8TB of usable space from disk drives described as "2TB".
