Pros
Seems to work fine

Cons
None

Summary

Well, two of these sitting in an NAS and haven't failed yet, so I'm happy. Can't hear them outside of the unit.

Pros
Great performance Reliable Great capacity

Cons
Price

Summary

Got this for a home server and the drives have been working great. Their on 24/7 and I had no problems so far with them. I like the warranty of 3 years but I wish that they were 5 years like the blacks are. The price is also a bit high and I almost thought of going to a cheaper option, in the end though I did not regret my purchase.

Pros
Reliable, quiet, cool running

Cons
Not the fastest drives available.

Summary

Reliable workhorses, these fall firmly within the price/performance midpoint. As both standalone drives and members of raid arrays, these drives provide a reliable experience. My personal failure rate on them is zero out of 35, with some running for over a year nonstop. Worth spending you money on.

Pros
Shipping in 1 day, 3 years warranty, large capacity

Cons
price

Summary

Ordered on Monday, received on Tuesday! wow, great shipping! (Mississauga to Montreal). I got this WD red to replace a WD Green that has a bad status after 3 years (warranty is only 2 years). It performed as expected. Red and Green are the same disk, just the software is optimized for Raid. It's a bit pricy compared to other disk but warranty is 3 years (and WD Black with 5 years warranty is a bit pricy), so this one is a good compromised.

Pros
Perfect HDD for Nas

Cons
None

Summary

I have a lot of theses in Qnap NAS. Can't be better. Some other brands failed overtime, mostly Seagate drives, but no WD Red died so far.

Pros
fast, reliable,

Cons
expensive for the number of GB

Summary

I bought this for my PC replacement, its fast and reliable. It's expensive for the number of GB/$ but its worth it at the end.

By: Medhat_Y 2015-08-19 18:41

Pros
Lots of storage at reasonable price Good performance

Cons
Warranty could be longer

Summary

I've had mixed luck with WD before, with drives failing, but WD has good customer support and reasonable price/performace. Too bad the warranty is relatively short.

Pros
works flawlessly on my NAS so far, as expected

Cons
none so far

Summary

Works as expected, not much else to say.

By: Bshizz 2015-08-11 23:40

Pros
-Quiet -lots of storage -good transfer speed

Cons
-Pricy

Summary

Bought it to use as a back up drive. Dead silent and is faster than I expected. I also have a WD black and its prolonged transfer speeds are almost identical. However, the WD black still has faster burst writes and access times. I wouldn't use a Red for an OS drive but it certainly better than a black for media storage when factoring in the cost.

Pros
Quiet. No hitches in setup or use.

Cons
None so far.

Summary

Purchased two to run in RAID 1 as a data drive. They are quite and access is quick as they don't spin down. So far so good - not much more to say at this point. Shipment arrived very quickly and the drives were well packaged.
