Had two and both crashed.

Pros: Good price

Cons: Ordered two and one was DOA on arrival, the other crashed within a little over a month. Now I'm stuck with a crashed and useless drive. I would of given it zero eggs but you can't..

Overall Review: Do not buy!!

Hi Rathana V.,

We regret hearing about your Online shopping experience with WD Red Hard Drive and appreciate your time for providing the feedback. If your drive is not showing up on the computer then we would recommend you to connect the drive on the different drive bay or SATA port of the computer and to run diagnostics with Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows when the drive shows up on a different computer or by using First Aid option on MAC computer. We have placed a few helpful links below providing more information for your convenience.

"Testing a drive for problems using Data Lifeguard Diagnostics for Windows":

"How to test a drive for defects or problems on a Mac":
https://support-en.wd.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14800

If the test is unfortunately inconclusive and you just purchased the drive then you should be able to return it to the place of purchase. However, if you are past their return policy, you can create an RMA through WD and replace the drive under warranty if necessary.

good unit

Pros: The capacity and it runs cool.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: First time owning these drives, I have two 3tb and a pair of these 6tb in my Synology NAS. So far so good, it's been a few weeks and no errors or weirdness. The performance is good, getting 100mb/s over gigabit network.

first DOA drive ever.. but....

Pros: pretty fast, lots of TB/$, cool and quiet.

Cons: my first ever DOA drive I have ever owned, and my first drive was a 25MB drive back in the 80's... after 3 years it died completely, as a general rule 6TB drives from WD have been problematic for me.

Overall Review: the first drive I got came DOA, but actually its replacement is awesome! its actually a lot of value in my opinion. 10% slower than a 6TB BLACK and 20% less money, reads in ATTO are 220MB/s, writes 200MB/s. costed me $50/TB. when I got a DOA drive it left a sour taste in my mouth, but honestly after running one for a few months now, I love it! I use it in my main rig which is pretty much a media/work station and only for backup, mainly because my 6TB(usable) RAID10 setup is pretty much full now. will most likely buy another before the year is up..... not that I can tell the difference between a desktop or NAS drive, just generally they last a little longer from my experience.

Great for NAS/Fileservers, storing media, backups.

Pros: - I have 9 RED drives that I have bought over the years. Many are over 5 years old. None of the drives have failed, and I have them running 24/7. In prior times, where I bought standard Seagate drives, I would have had several failures by now. I don't buy anything else now.

Cons: - It's a 5400 RPM drive and not optimized for running programs. But that's not what it is for. This is a drive for storing large amount of data. Run your programs from an SSD, it's 2018.

Performance Worthy for my NAS.

Pros: -- Fast data transfers, I'm not running a RAID array, but from drive to drive I see 180MB/s when I move media around. It's been interesting, because I have a 10TB version of this drive with 256mb cache and I don't notice a speed difference.
-- 3 Year warranty, better than 2.

Cons: Any drive 4TB+ should have a 5 year warranty and the pro's should have a 7 year + if I'm expected to pay that much, you might want to consider extending the warranty. I slowly upgraded my main Plex media server over the last 4 months I would buy 2 of these and move the data from 2-3tb's. I was at a computer store when I got my last two to fill up my case. See specs in Other.

Overall Review: I finally built a new machine this year, I was running an AMD A10-6800k using onboard video. So I saved up and got my bonus, Now i'm running an AMD Ryzen 2nd Generatio 2700X with Taichi x370 motherboard and 2 1080TI's. So with this left over, I figured it would make a decent plex media server.

CPU: AMD APU A10-6800K
MOTHERBOARD: MSI A88X-G43
RAM: 32GB DDR3-1333
COOLER: CoolerMaster Evo 212+ Dual Fans
PSU: CORSAIR 750W
SSD: 500GB Samsung 860
HDD: 10x6TB WD RED.
