Experience: 2 Years
Pros
Quiet
RMA process
Good Transfer Speed in NAS
Cons
Drive failing after only 2 years
Summary
Had 2 of these drives in a ReadyNAS RN102. Once failed after almost two years. WD replaced the drive under warranty no questions asked. They even shipped a larger drive (3TB). Always buy WD drives. That was the first I have ever had fail.

Pros
Should last long
Cons
nothing
Summary
I had an other HDD from the same series, and needed to replace an old one that was failing, so I bough the same series as my other drives. So far had no issues with the Red on a file server.

Pros
Works great in my NAS setup
Cons
None
Summary
Ben using it as a backup solution & it's been going strong so far.

Pros
Hot swapped and rebuilt RAID in a couple of days; reasonably priced.
Cons
Took a while toi rebuild though this could be a RAID controller limitation.
Summary
My older RAIDs take 2TB drives which have recently been failing one after another. I am replacing with this series (Red) as it has performed well for me in the past. The initial build took longer than expected, but there is no degradation in performance afterwards. Too early to comment on long-term reliability..

Pros
Fast, quiet, excellent.
Cons
none.
Summary
Using it as a normal storage drive that barely ever gets touched. Works well in this capacity!

Pros
working as expected
Cons
none at this time
Summary
i've had good luck with this brand in the past. I've used several of these in small NAS's without issue.

Experience: 8 Months
Pros
Title says it all; plenty of storage for my archival material, absolutely silent in my Buffalo NAS setup (at about 5 feet distance), has run 24-7 for about a year with nary a whimper. Cost v. capacity is now very favorable. Will buy another when budget permits.
Cons
No known problems at this time. This drive did cost more per Tb than some drives, but even most of that small quibble has disappeared at current prices. As WD makes clear, this unit is optimized for NAS service, and is not intended as the primary or secondary drive in a desktop/tower system. Its bigger brothers in the 3 and 5 Tb sizes seem to be less well-regarded (3 eggs vs 4 for this'n); not sure why this should be, but prospective purchasers should review the comments on those units with care.
Summary
Those seeking a quiet, reliable and cost-effective NAS solution should give this guy a careful look. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone wanting well-performing, dependable bulk/archival storage.

Pros
More reliable than green drives
Less partitioning hassle than with 3 TB and more drives.
Cons
Slower than SSD, but that's ok for mass storage.
Summary
Bought to replace an aging 2 TB disk. I am very satisfied with the replacement. Will never go green again!

Cons
Little bit slow
Summary
nothing

Pros
A beautiful piece of machinery
Cons
None I can see
Summary
I am very satisfied with this product, transfer rates are fast and operation is quiet. If your using as a second hard drive you will need an extra SATA cable and mounting hardware. This is a Hard Drive only.
