    My unix computer is on 24x7 for years at a time, so I wanted a non-windows drive that would last for at least 3 years. My previous drive was an enterprise class drive for unix and it was born in 2007, so about 10 years. This drive is a not very much more expensive ($20?) but advertised to have the stamina. I purchased a pair of them for a btrfs mirror a couple of months ago and they are still running. They are quieter than my previous drives, too. At this point, i would recommend them.

    I purchased 2 of these recently to replace 2 1TB WD Green drives that had over 9 Years of actual up time on them. I already had 2 of these 2TB Red drives in my home server set up as RAID 1 Mirror and I couldn't be happier. No they are not performance drives, No you shouldn't put them in your primary PC for playing games and booting from, but if you are looking for good long term storage / file server drives then these work great.

    Seems to be a good product for a NAS

    One day my NAS shows an alert saying one of my hard drive had bad sectors and needs to be replaced. I remember when I bought my NAS almost 4 years ago, I was a bit hesitant to invest in a specific hard drive for a NAS. This time, I did not hesitate, considering 4 years of product life is not very good, knowing as well I'm not an intense user of my NAS (personnal usage only). The red series of WD hard drive seems to be among the best one. So far so good !

    The Red series by Western Digital has been fantastic in my Media Server. I have 8 2 TB drives in it, and I have been running ZFS in a RAIDZ-2 configuration without a hitch for some months. Several of the drives have been in the server for over a year, and not a single error has occurred. Since they support TLER, these drives are great for RAID arrays (both software and hardware).

    This is my second time purchasing WD red drives for my Drobo (NAS). I was running low on space, so I hot swapped in two 2 TB drives in place of the old 500 GB ones. Transition was painless. The other 3 drives in my NAS have been 1 TB WD reds, and it has been running non-stop for the better part of 6 years without a drive failure... Knock on wood...

    I purchased 3 of these drives for use in a home NAS (DROBO5N). BBY had them on sale and it was a great price. The drives have been awesome and no problems. It was so easy to set them up. I also did some research and these WD Red drives got great reviews in the tech blogs as very reliable for NAS use.

    I bought two of these for my Drobo almost a year and a half ago; I have had no issues. They were easy to pop into my Drobo, have served me very well. Having two of them allows me to worry less in case one fails, but both have worked splendidly so far! I am back on this page to possibly order two more to fill my Drobo.

    I purchased 3 of these to use in. Qnap nas. I chose WD red due to their reputation of reliability. I have had a few WD red drive in other devices and they have all held up without issues. So far so good on all 3 drives. I trust my content living on these drives.
