Bought a pair of these to use as a 3TB RAID 1 array for my NAS enclosure.

They are fast, quiet, they run cool, and they are good value for money at £89 a piece. Also had nothing but good service from WD drives over the years, so am confident these will be the same.

Finally a drive for NAS

This is a great drive for home users with a NAS (network attached storage).

I have a D-Link Sharecenter 320 running a pair of 1 year old regular drives and while ok they weren't built for the job, running hot and slow data rates.

I got the latest firmware from D-link, inserted the drive into the enclosure and it worked straight away without any problems.

So far data transfer rates are 3-4 times faster than the drives that were replaced and so far the drive hasn't needed cooling once.

Also given it comes with a 3 year warrenty from WD they are confident that these drives will do the job.
