Solid drives, No issues after 3 years of use
Huge 3TB capacity. Reliable. Quiet.
Great choice for silent operation and massive capacities. And not as bad transfer rates as i thought. Write: 120mb/s Read: 130mb/s
Went for the Green for the low decibel level of operation. Never had any problems with WD.
Drive is pretty slow, even for 5400RPM standards. Not used for anything critical, just long term storage for media files and some backups.
I bought this after my previous Western Digital drive died. Im hoping this one actually lasts. Having said that performance is good and i have yet to see any reliability issues from THIS drive.
I have had five of these. Two of them have failed over the course of usage. They are big and slow, but seem to work ok in a parity setup. I wouldn't buy again and am looking to phase them out.
Salvaged from a earlier build (2014). No issues running it so far with FreeNAS for the last few years.
I've had this drive for 3 years now as my primary storage for Media. It's cheap, reliable and saves on energy. Hopefully it will continue to bring me more years of reliable storage with no issues. I would only recommend using this as a storage drive as it's rather slow with only 5400RPM speed.
I know they are not of great quality but they've done their jobs for about 5 years now and I always back up important stuff to the cloud.
