5* WD 3TB Red SATA 6Gb/s 64MB 3.5" Hard Drive
Reviewed by John on 13/04/2013
A great and reliable hardrive for the job!
5* Finally a drive for NAS
Reviewed by Anonymous on 29/10/2012
This is a great drive for home users with a NAS (network attached storage).

I have a D-Link Sharecenter 320 running a pair of 1 year old regular drives and while ok they weren't built for the job, running hot and slow data rates.

I got the latest firmware from D-link, inserted the drive into the enclosure and it worked straight away without any problems.

So far data transfer rates are 3-4 times faster than the drives that were replaced and so far the drive hasn't needed cooling once.

Also given it comes with a 3 year warrenty from WD they are confident that these drives will do the job.
5* Inspire confidence
Reviewed by Dan P on 22/09/2014
Bought a pair of these to use as a 3TB RAID 1 array for my NAS enclosure.

They are fast, quiet, they run cool, and they are good value for money at £89 a piece. Also had nothing but good service from WD drives over the years, so am confident these will be the same.
5* Excellent
Reviewed by PavT on 30/07/2015
I got this drive to use as a mass backup / storage using a bare drive adapter. It is fast and quiet. Would thoroughly recommend it.
4* Fast and Quiet but had a failure
Reviewed by Anonymous on 11/08/2015
These drives are specifically designed for NAS drives and I purchased 2 in April 2013 for use in my Synology 213+ disk station running in RAID 1 mode.
In combination they have been quick quiet and efficient and I would have given them 5 stars.

However I just had one fail after just over two years use. The first sign was an intermitent "grinding" sound which soiunded like the fan failing. However a week later Disk 1 has fallen out of the RAID with bad sectors and disk unreachable errors.

Hopefully this isn't a sign of things to come with Disk 2.

Due to the failure within the wrranty period I'm dropping my score to 4 stars. It will be interesting to see how WD's warranty works in practice as the terms seem designed to make claiming difficult
