Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Drives Great transfer speeds good value for money. Initially bought 3T Toshibas must have been a bad batch both failed within 4 minutes of being connected. Decided to pay the extra and well worth it. 11 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Another great hard drive and service from Scan Having always purchased WD hard drives I had to have these Reds for my new NAS Fast reliable and great value. Coupled with Scans superb service as always. I was very pleased. 01 May 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smooth, fast - so far so good Bought as an internal backup for a raid 5 setup comprising 4x 1TB drives. Belt and braces in my setup. It is good and quiet. It has so far proved better than similar Seagate drives. Time will tell re reliability. 28 April 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A good product I have a Drobo unit and these drives are spot on.. 21 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly reccomended drive for NAS I purchased 3 drives for a new ReadyNAS 214. All arrived next day and were well packed - the usual SCAN service. All tested fine and registered at WD for 3 yrs warranty. After 1 month's use no problems. 08 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great NAS drive Needed to upgrade drive capacity in Netgear NAS. 2 of these fitted the price and capacity. Quiet and reliable so far 1 month on. 14 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great service Very happy with the service and the product. I have no negative comments. 11 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product for the price I bought my first 1TB WD Red back in 2012 awesome drive. I was using it on my previously build PC for data storage works perfectly I'm still using it 2016 got buckup just in case :D I've decided to buy 3TB WD Red for storage on new build I did by the end of 2015 with Skylake and I'm very pleased with it. I would recommend this drive as reliable storage having quite a few HDD since mid 80's it's not nice to have data lost due to drive failure. In my system Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV Atx case with noiseblockers 140 mm fans cooling the drive temp is about 28C idle under load about 34C max. I've formatted it with GPT partition after format I have 2.72 TB of available space on Windows 10. Only minor thing which in my case doesn't bother me but something I should mention is the low but audible head search noise while ie. checking folder size that contains music etc platters are very quiet and it's quite well balanced drive that doesn't generate a lot of vibration while in use watching movies stored noise is not noticeable. Drive can be used in NAS for up to 8 drives and it's covered by 3 year warranty. Overall great size, price and Scan as usual excellent service shipped fast packed well very happy :D 17 February 2016
