Reviews

from completed build Small Business Server

I've built two separate servers utilizing these reliable drives, which provide plenty of storage. I am using stablebit's drive pool and drive scanner to monitor them .

from completed build Hydra

The HDDs definitely click a lot when writing (sounds like a Coffee machine boiler), but that is mechanical HDDs for you. Not a major issue because most I/O is from SSD, and these are used for capacity.

This drive is very slow, even for a 5400RPM drive. Not used for anything critical, just long term storage so it'll be ok.

from completed build NAS Beast/Personal Server

Not a bad NAS drive. Probably about the best Price/GB NAS drive. Only 5400RPM, so the speeds aren't amazing, but still totally great for most applications. These are popular for a reason, because they're good and they work.

from completed build MagicBox Workstation

Reliable drive for backups

from completed build Home PLEX Server

Quiet, cool, low vibration. Very solid drives over-all with a great WD warranty to back them.

from completed build Decent Rig To Get Me By

Reliable. Quiet.
