Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed at 3 years 8 months I was fairly excited about Western Digital's new RED drives after reading about them before their release. Every review was positive and hailed the drive as being a worthy investment. They were more expensive than the comparable non-NAS drive but claimed to have better reliability and data integrity. So I had faith and went and ordered this 2TB model from Scan to fit in a NAS box alongside other 2TB drives which were getting close to being full. My NAS box isnt on 24/7, it's a media NAS box and so this drive literally has hardly been used and its failed after 3 years 8 months, only 8 months outside of Western Digital's 3 year warranty. So I can't recommend this product over a non-NAS equivalent. The reliability they advertise just isn't there. I might be cynical but it could just be a blue drive they've re-branded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works nicely I brought this to replace the hard drive in my Humax PVR, as the old one (a different brand) had died after about 4 years of 24x7 operation, and because I had heard good things about the reliablity of WD Red Drives. So far it has been working well, but only time will tell if it will be reliable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stores data and then reads it back again!! It's like magic. I used it in a WD EX4100 and it even survives a power outage. Mind you, I do have a battery backup PSU. It remembers stuff for days. How clever is that?!

Questions & Answers

2T drive for Drobo 5d

Hi I am looking for 5x drives to go into a Drobo 5D that i am going to order from you, which drive would you recommend? i am looking at 5x of these drives would they be good? i will be using them for video editing.
Asked by: TVCam
These drives are recommended for use in RAID arrays, and I have used them successfully in both larger and smaller arrays than you Drobo 5D, so assuming the capacity is right for you, then this would make a good choice.
