WD REDNAS

 

Ask me in 5 years time...However, initial impressions are good.The drives run very quiet, cool and with very little vibration. They are in my test QNAP NAS 219 P II and no problems so far, but watch this space. I've used supposedly compatible Seagate...

Great Drives

 

Fast considering the rpm, getting write speeds around 100 mb/s on SATA II, hopefully be better once I fit my new board.

A great balance between speed and noise

 

This drive has a very nice balance of speed and noise. Being a 5900RPM drive it is not at all slow, in fact its much faster than 5400RPM drive.

Missing memory

 

Like a previous reviewer, I was annoyed at the 1.8T storage, but experienced the same thing with my 500G storage. The confusion comes from the computing industries use of 1024 bytes as 1k. So, 1 Meg is 1024x1024=1048576 bytes and 1T is 1048576x1048576...

Does what it says on the tin.

 

Exactly what it says, plug n play, running Windows 7 with 3gb ram and no problems at all. I didnt give it 5 stars as when i plugged it in i only get 1.81Tb. Small niggle i know as they all 'lose' a bit of size, but 190gb is quite a bit. Apart from that...

A Bit Temperamental - Died After Only 3 Months!

 

Product worked pretty well for three months with no issues, then last week it delivered the unwelcome "click of death" on power-up. Everything on the disk was therefore lost. I use a mirrored back-up system, so even though all the data on the disk was...

Same point as the 1TB version

 

First of all I'll get the good points out of the way first, the good points being that the drive is a Western Digital and always found them to be reliable for up to 10 years before they usually die quietly (based on experience with a WD 40GB Caviar...
