Top customer reviews
Thank you WD! You've kept a client. I already bought another 3TB Red to complete my RAID setup (I hope I don't have to go through the same steps again to be able to register it! I would have given a 5 star review if it wasn't for this problem with warranty).
[Original review:] I'm having the same problem other reviewers had in registering the drive for the WD warranty. Basically, I'm told it doesn't have a WD warranty because it is an OEM product. I' trying to have WD change its position and will edit this review if anything changes.
Besides this, the drive appears to be fine. Silent and fast. But one of the reasons I chose WD was because of the WD warranty!
Western Digital State: "NAS for home
Take your connected home environment to the next level with a NAS system that is equipped with WD Red hard drives and enjoy streaming your media, backing up your computers, file sharing and managing your digital content faster and easier."
The RPM states "Intellipower" perhaps a WD code word for slow. But as I sit here now, I can hear the drives clunking away continuously which isn't really acceptable, especially when they are not being accessed.
ordered on the Free delivery scheme, was promised on a Monday, but was delivered on the Friday Before..so better..5 stars
Warranty Check on the WD site showed about 2.6 yrs warranty ?? ..
But after registering and inputting the purchase date this was updated to almost 3.5 yrs ..
so again excellent .5.5 Stars LOL.
Time will tell on the reliability , but it seems to run cool and very Quiet .in my 2 Bay NAS ..
After 5 Seagates failing in about 6 months .This should be a better Drive.. ?.
Amazon outdid themselves with this delivery. The packaging was absolutely perfect; the main box was well filled with padding to prevent movement of sub boxes. The two hard drives were each in a dedicated box with end supports for the drives to prevent movement and absorb shock, they were then sealed in the factory anti static bags.
The HDDs from Amazon are immaculate factory condition drives and working like champs as double TimeMachine backup drives.
Very Happy! Will buy again from Amazon
Not really a lot more you can say, I would not put any other prosumer drive in my NAS boxes
