Great value for the money, definitely recommended!

For a year and a half now, 2 of these have been spinning in RAID 1, I haven’t found any problems (they don’t crumble, they don’t heat up, they don’t make noise, they don’t click). I am satisfied with the purchase.

As such, there are no disadvantages, it is convenient to use.

I've been using it for storage for 5 months, it's very quiet and cold -30 degrees, but immediately when I bought it, there is one slow cluster of 1.5 ms at the beginning of the section. And so there are no complaints, it won't work under the system, really 5400 speed is not enough.

I like everything, the price and the quality are both ok.

The first copy of this disk did not work even for half a year, bads appeared. I exchanged it in the store for another one of the same - it has been working for more than three years without any complaints. It is in a home computer paired with a system SSD and does not cause problems.

Great value for the money, definitely recommended!

I bought this disk in 2022 for data storage, it is still alive and is not going to "give up". The surface after 28 thousand hours is ideal, SMART - approx. Under the system, I would not recommend it (slow), but to place a home music library is the very thing. I recommend.

  • Reliability Unkillable Quiet for RED-series
  • In the first revisions (2022), the head block clicked after 15 minutes of inactivity, it was decided by ating to a new firmware.

I took several of these for ordinary PCs to replace one green, one blue series. Everything is fast, without unnecessary noise and parking, and most importantly without bugs (which is why the old green and blue ended up in a landfill). For NAS, however, the volume is not enough, for a server and for a PC it is an excellent option. Its pros: Super reliability of the RED series. Working speed at height Cons: The price is its main drawback. Therefore, it is more a solution for business than for…

The purchase brought only positive emotions.

Has some pros: Worked 8 months and 12 days online. SMART scores are excellent. There are no bad sectors. Has some cons: I was surprised that the reading speed of the RED line is less than that of the BLUE of the same volume.

I built a quiet system. The silence of his work raises no objections. The system, programs are on the SSD. HDD is used for archive, documents, etc. etc. The disk head is parked (after about 10 minutes of inactivity, if desired, you can configure it as convenient for anyone) - for me the most optimal solution. I explain: when working with documents, files, viewing photos, the disk works constantly without parking. "Work" in the browser - we watch movies online, go to FBontakte - the disk is…

  • + quiet (does not crackle, does not whistle) + cold + moderate, decent price + good for RAID +/- the head is parked (a plus for me, explanations in the comments)
  • -/+ the head is parked (a plus for me, explanations in the comments)

I have been using it for 5 years (almost 21,000 hours). The read / write speed sank to 108 mb / s. Not a single bad or slow sector, the only "health" parameter of 61% is the spin-up time of the spindle, otherwise it is still 100% alive. Slightly audible crunches when reading / copying, but it cannot be called noisy at 5400 rpm, the vibration is moderate. The disk was still of the first revisions, it was powered by high-quality power supplies - perhaps this is the reason for its reliability and…

  • Reliable. Stable. Cold.
  • Over time, due to drawdowns, there are problems with read access, for example, virtual machines can be wildly dumb at work, and data in games can be loaded with noticeable delays.

After reading reviews about the product, where some buyers note that the disc comes without proper mechanical protection, I did not dare to buy. But greed took over. The price is good and I decided to take a video of the unpacking just in case, in case the disc arrives faulty. As they wrote in the reviews, the disk came simply in an antistatic package enclosed in a 2022 Post package. That is, completely without mechanical protection. I filmed the unpacking process on video, connected the disk…

  • Delivered in a week. The return was not very troublesome, the money was returned.
  • Disk not working

Mediocre goods, most likely I will not use.

I just bought it yesterday, so I can't really say anything about its merits yet. While still working. The downside is its noise. It's just impossible to work, it's terribly infuriating. Maybe, of course, I'm so sensitive, but I haven't had such loud hard drives yet. It crackles and chirps like a herd of grasshoppers. I would like to think that I came across such a model . Otherwise, it becomes sad from the thought that the new hdd from the pluses can only boast of volume.

  • Works.
  • It rattles terribly. For the price it could be quieter.

One of the best offers, glad I bought it.

I recently wanted to buy myself a brand new one, and stumbled upon this model (which I once bought). Well let's start: I bought this copy on January 3, 2022 (right now February 22, 2022) for 3 years it happened to him ., but no, nothing happened to him at all: D (and I drove him with a torrent in a terrible way) . An hour ago, I tested in Victoria. not just broken, even sectors with access from 20 to 50 ms from 1 TB. found only 3 pieces. ! (such a recently purchased disc will envy). further…

  • Incredible reliability, quite quiet, cold (compared to other terabytes)
  • The price (I took it at the beginning of 2022 for 2.8, right now it jumped right up to 4.6), although it is justified by the above, the speed could be higher, but this is already nit-picking.

Satisfactory product quality, good price.

The speed of the WD10EFRX does not stand out, yet the bias is towards using it as a network storage or using it as an additional hdd. As a boot disk, I would not install this, IMHO. Pros below: - Low heating even under load. - No noise, which is especially important when you have several hard drives at once. - The manufacturer claims that the hdd is highly reliable, but let's take our word for it, it certainly hasn't worked so many hours for me yet. Different cons: - Price, although you can…

There are two of these in the system. On one, several virtual machines are installed with a bunch of different programs + the archives of these programs themselves. on the other for the torrent, the video is downloaded for 8-12 hours a day. The maximum was reached in the heat outside and so 30 all the time. Before that, there was a green of the same model, but without a buggy version (frequent spanking), I didn’t have this standing on torrents for 3 years, but then he died and worked for 250…

  • Reliable. Cold max 40 min 28. Quiet. You practically don't hear them. It can be seen that they work by blinking a light. Price.
  • Not revealed yet.

I assembled a pair into a REID array 0. To be honest, I thought they would work faster, but I'm probably already finding fault, I broke through the tests, the speed is normal. To etch my cockroaches, I installed a 32 GB solid state as a buffer and forgot about the problems. Hard ones work well. Bought based on reviews. I don't regret it.

I'm very happy with the product, it's very satisfying.

I was picked up by such a hard drive friends who understand computers. As explained, now it is one of the optimal discs. I liked the fact that I fit into the budget and that the hard drive works quickly. And, of course, WD (before that I had and still have an external 250GB WD hard drive) Different pros: fast work, normal volume that almost any system sees, quiet and, as my friends-experts explained to me, and as I myself checked with the program, it practically does not heat up With its cons…
