Rated 5 out of 5 by pegasus A must have for a NAS system
I purchased this solely to be used in my NAS drive, a Synology ds215j. There wasn't much to it, just insert and it is ready to be used. It hardly makes a noise when in use and keeps to a very safe operating temperature at all times, I've never seen it reach over 27 celsius and it's on 24 hours a day so it is very capable for its intended use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MoreReviewsMoreSnooze Good price, excellent reliability rates!
Went for this drive after reading some stats on its reliability. Very well packaged, very quiet & performs well. Confident it will last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cmclreviewer Expensive but reliable
Not as fast as some of the more recent drives but apparently more reliable in the long term. Will have to wait and see in 2 years if they're still going strong. We ordered 3 and they all seem to work fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bill5991 so close
This drive really has everything going for it, outclasses every drive in its price range. But hey you can see the specs so no need to repeat them all here, the drive is well built and came very well packed in a retail box, the only thing that knocks it down it a slight whine when writing, once you hear it you can't un-hear it but it doesn't effect your experience of this fantastic drive. 2.72Tb formatted in win7 ultimate

Rated 5 out of 5 by mil7 Fast and quiet, installed x2 in RAID 0
Plenty of space and fast, installed x2 in RAID 0. I hope they are as reliable as the reviews claim they are.

I brought the of these for a free nas build and they have been performing very well. I choose these drives as they have proven very reliable in previous tests in its desktop form, it's too early to comment on their relibility but their performance is good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mindstormer Good value 3TB drive
Arrived well packed, it's a hard drive so doesn't really come with much apart from screws, although I used the rubber grommeted ones that came with my case.
It's fast enough. I use one as an archived data drive and another as a backup destination.
I can't vouch for long term reliability but other HGST drives I have are still going strong.
