Customer Reviews

Very good drive

Reviewed by on

I have one of these in a NAS running 24/7 since 2014, still works like clock work.

So far, so good.

Reviewed by on

I've had the drive for about a month so far, and it's been working great. Never had any issues with WD drives, especially the RED's, although as with most things in life, your mileage may vary. Would be cool if we could get Hitachi HGST drives in SA though.

Not really a gripe, but I would recommend going for the 4TB drives as they're now only R700 more expensive than the 3TB.
