WD drives are my #1 choice 9/20/2020 6:14:20 AM

Pros: The WD Red Pro drives are recommended for my new Synology DS220+. I use it as a data hub at home and access time is much faster than on my previous NAS with regular WD Red drives. It been running for just a few weeks and I’m tickled at the speed.

The NAS Red Pros are a little more expensive than regular NAS drives but the performance and endurance increases makes them worth the added cost. This is just 3 weeks into their use so time will tell how they hold up.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Western Digital drives have always been my drive of choice whether building a computer, choosing an external backup or now, installing a server. I wouldn’t keep buying them if I didn’t think they were the best.

Relability a big plus 9/12/2020 5:52:16 AM

Pros: Now have two WD Red Pro 6TB drives in a Synology DS220j Diskless System and I don't have to worry about backups. Now I have got to learn how to take advantage of all the other capabilities that this NAS system can provide.

Cons: Can hear drives operate, but to me the noise is not objectionable. It might be for some people if the system was located close as on the same desk.

Overall Review: Not having to worry about the drives in my NAS system give me a good feeling

One of the best brands for storage drives. 9/3/2020 9:10:07 PM

Pros: - It's not SMR.
- WD is a long time brand in the business.
- Quiet and reliable.
- HDD's just can't be beat.
- Price per capacity is second to none.
- Extremely large cache.

Cons: - None

Overall Review: I've used WD drives for well over 20 years and to date, I've had nearly zero issues with them. The Red series are best used for NAS, but they do make great high capacity Long Term Storage drives for workstations outside the Black series. I still will recommend an HDD for anyone wanting reliable long term storage even in this SSD age.

Shipped Fast, Worked Perfectly 8/22/2020 8:36:05 PM

Pros: Ordered as new, arrived as new. Well packaged and on the next day since I'm close to one of their warehouses. Passed SMART test with flying colors. I trust WD hard drives over most other brands, they've never let me down yet. I still have WD drives put away in storage that work perfectly after 10 years.

Cons: Slightly louder than the drive my OS is installed on, but still pretty quiet overall. Reading some of the other reviews has made me a bit wary of the drives longevity, but I guess time will tell.

Overall Review: Just needed to add a bit more room for Plex and since this was on sale, seemed like a good time.
