6TB WD Red WD60EFRX, 3.5" NAS HDD, SATA III - 6Gb/s, 5400rpm, 64MB Cache, NCQ is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Avoid Amazon and head to Scan I have to purchase NAS drives for my edit suite. I have used other vendors but came back to Scan for a number of reasons. Their prices are competitive (but never go just on price) The pack their products properly ...important for harddrives. I purchased one of Amazon that came in an envelope without even bubble wrap? It died three months later.. Scan give you a delivery date and provide you with constant updates.. They have a huge selection and will continue to use them.. Helps that their staff are very knowledgeable ..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it promises Relatively quiet and doesn’t vibrate too much, all good so far!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Okay NAS drive I bought three of these and one failed in just over 2 years. I'd have expected a bit more longevity for something marketed as an "always on" drive. However, I'm willing to write it off as bad luck as the other two have not yet failed or shown any signs of issues.
Date published: 2017-04-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not had a single issue with them. Came very well packaged and well padded. Bought 5 of these drives for a new Drobo 5n NAS and they are all in good condition working well and not a single failure after a month of continuous use.
Date published: 2017-03-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent. So far so good. I have been running the drive in my HP Microserver for 2 months now. No problems seen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First failure in 20 Overall, these are great disks and my first choice for NAS use. I just had my first failure (other than DoA Amazon because they rough and tough them). The problem is intermittent, but after having to rebuild the NAS array a third time I decided to swap for a new one and it's been fine. Only issue is despite being under warranty, when WD test it they'll say it's fine and not replace it. I suppose a 5% failure in 2 years+ is OK, but need to build that into the budget.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Big capacity, unsure on relability Purchased two drives and added to my storage setup. First one has failed within 1 month, with the drive making clicking noises. Drives will fail I do understand that and in my experience WD has been the most reliable, so I'll keep buying them.
Date published: 2015-02-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth consideration I was interested to see the other 2 reviews saying about failures. Of course everyones experiences are different, but just to add some balance I've now ordered 73x 6Tb WD RED drives since October to use in servers, and not had a single failure in 24x7 operation. So they can't be all that bad...

Questions & Answers

Is this a retail box kit or a component boxed (OEM) version?

Hello, This would be an OEM packaged item. Regards,

Is the 36 months warranty with you or WD for these OEM drives as WD state that is only for retail drives?

I recently had one of these drives go wrong after 18 months or so and reached out to WD for a warranty repair. However they state they only offer the warranty for retail drives and, as an OEM drive, the OEM should be responsible for any warranty issues, not them. It would be great if you do offer the 3 year warranty though! Thanks

Hello, These drives have a 3 year warranty through ourselves. Regards,
