I have two RAID arrays and fill them with WD Reds.

I have never had a WD Red fail. ever.

All hard drives fail, you should prepare for it as an inevitability,

That's why I keep two of these drives as hot spares at all times.

However, for what it's worth, my failure rate of these drives has been zero thus far. and I have 16 of them active. and have for about 4 years, 24/7, with high load.

Bought 2 of these for my Synology NAS and they work as expected however I had one fail a few months after I bought them and the second just failed today(less than a year). Amazon was great RMA'ing the first failure even though I was supposed to go to WD directly and WD just RMA-d the second one today. Great support from both Amazon and WD for the product, but I would recommend buying a spare as I just have to make sure your NAS is down for a few hours instead of up to a week and a half depending on shipping delays.

Bought five of these to install in a Synology DiskStation DS1513+. So far, two out of the five drives throw I/O errors, then crash. Makes me more than a little nervous about using these drives to back up critical data.

The up-side is that Amazon has been excellent about sending replacement drives quickly and without any bureaucratic hassle.

1 of the 2 i purchased bit the dust within 3 months. Hope I"m not stuck with RMA process as that means I'm spending again.

I love it so far. No issues. Just make sure to make the partition GPT so you can see all the data on one partition. Only had it for two months so I can't say anything towards longevity just yet.

Bought this to replace a WD Green in a Raid array, after having to replace 2 WD green drives in a couple of months. The Green is a waste of time in an array, possibly due to power saving and slow spin up. At any rate, the Red seems to work without issues - have had no errors since installing it. After reading reviews by professional server farms, this seems to be the usual experience.

Solid performance! I love this drive, along with another 3TB Green that I took out of my external hard drive. I have 6TB of space in my Mediasonic HF2-SU3S2 4 Bay Smart Drive HDD Enclosure USB 3.0. Works like a charm and I haven't had any troubes with it for the past 2 months.
Get it, you won't be disappointed!
