I just wanted large drive for storage. this drive fit the bill, I'm very happy with product, It's worked flawlessly so far and I like that it has power miser feature, don't care if it takes a moment to spin up, as its primarily used as back-up. My black carvers faster and thats what I work from any-way. Would buy again.
This is a great drive for htpc or storage. Cheap cost/GB. I wouldn't recommend using this drive for the OS, as its not the quickest of drives. I would not use the drive in a raid config, as it tends to spin up and down on its own to conserve power, this may confuse some raid controllers.
I got this as an addition to the DNS-323 I bought which already had a 500 gb drive. But after hearing terrible defects with Seagate drives, I added this baby to back up my stuff before my Seagate dies.
They are not the fastest drives in the world, but thats perfectly fine for my application. I am using them in a NAS and for that they are perfect. Keeps the machine quiet, most of the noise I hear from the machine is the fans, the HD noise while read/writing is negligeable. I did not need the speed for my NAS since it really would not take full advantage of it, instead I wanted it to be quiet, and use as little power as possible. These drives are perfect for that.
I bought them when they were on sale for 85$, making them well worth the money.
Received 2x WD10EADS-00M2B0 for Synology 210j NAS in RAID1. The firmware on the drives are set to park head 8secs of idle (intellipark). This caused problems with my NAS unable to hibernate. In fact it I could hear it park every 8secs. I used wdidle3 utility from WD to disable intellipark altogether now it is working great. My load/unload cycle count has dropped dramatically according to S.M.A.R.T. OVerall, these are still good drives once setup properly.
This hard drive went in my Home Theatre PC , and so far it's been a great addition. I just needed massive storage for recording High Definition Video. I also wanted something that was going to be quiet, as currently you cannot hear the computer at all. This drive will "save" power but the hard drive is not normally the power hog in a system.
Bought two of these: one for myself, and one for a floormate in my dorm. We both wanted a Portable drive for backups, and storage of music and videos, since we both brought laptops with us, only. I've put these hard drives into an Antex Veris MX-100. They run cool.
