By Karl Burrows on December 8, 2010
**Update 2/10/2011** Another RMA for all three drives. I just spent 2 weeks rebuilding my RAID, restoring and re-backing up my data after the drives corrupted all my data. This is the 4th set of drives for me. They are upgrading them to the 2003 version that has the set 72000RPM speed to eliminate the issue with drive timing issues.

**Update 1/10/2010** Western Digital swapped out my old drives for the newer version which seem to handle the read/writes and spin rates much better. I had to rebuild the RAID for each drive replacement and copy my data over for backup (about 1.5TB including some large video files exceeding 15GB). Transfers were seamless and rebuilds went without a hitch. The new version is WD2002FYPS-02W3B0. Make sure you get this firmware version when you order. They do seem to fix the issues I was having. They have only been running for a few weeks and time will tell if they end up with the same read errors the older version drives had, but I feel better about these.

Original review:

I purchased 3 of these drives to create a RAID5 array to give me 4TB of storage for my work and personal files. I immediately had issues with the drives due to spin rates and compatibility with RAID controllers. It took work from both the RAID controller manufacturer (Areca) and WD to get firmware updates to allow these drive to sync their spin rates with the controllers read/write requests. During that time, I had the drives fail 5 times. Once we got the firmware issues resolved, I thought all was well. Now about 6 months later, 2 more drives have failed within 3 weeks of each other with the same read/write issues I had previously. I have confirmed that it has been the WD firmware each time.

I purchased five of these 2 TB Western Digital Data Center Rated Hard Drives for a new Synology DS509+ Network Attached Storage Server I bought for my small business. After about two weeks up and running, so far so good. They are extremely quiet, and generate just a small amount of heat. The variable speed capability works great. When there is no read-write activity, the drives are very quiet and consume less energy. When read-write activity is high, they are only marginally noisier. The read-write speed, at least from a subjective viewpoint, when doing backups is outstanding.

great drive and excellent price, at least until you need to return a drive for warranty replacement. turns out the warranty expired 3 years before it was purchased (2/2013). These drives are supposed to carry a 5yr replacement warranty but not in this case. So the 6 drives I purchased at the price of $140 are garbage can material when they fail. Be sure to do a warranty check when you get your "new" drives. They may not be what you were expecting them to be

These drives have performed flawlessly in a NetGear ReadyNAS Pro. It is necessary for the NAS's firmware to disable the 'green' function of these drives to prevent repetitive head parking (Load Cycle Count). Alternatively WD provides a patch called WDidle3 to use if your NAS's firmware isn't up to date. I was an early adopter to using this drive in a RAID NAS, and will buy these drives again.

Basic Summary:
I have 2 of these hard drive in a mirrored raid that have been running 24/7 for the past 3 years with no issues at all on our servers.

These drives were constantly stressed were used as a regular backup service/ repository for large amounts of client data, storing/ mounting of images, virtualization etc. Operating systems that have run on these drives include Windows 2008 R2, Windows 7 Pro-64 and most recently Linux.

Hard Drive Resilience:
Besides the obvious and unavoidable manufacturer's defects, heat is truly the number one killer of drives. As much as you invest in these drives, it would be wise to complement them with adequate air flow & cooling. The aluminum platters that hold your data are susceptible to warping as it is introduced to heat over time. At 7,200 RPM (or even 5,400RPM) the slightest change in size/ density on the platters can and will affect a whole host of sensitive internal hardware such as the read/write heads, hard drive spindle/ motor and of course, your data. The wear & tear is often not immediately noticeable but will reduce the life of the system. Don't think of cooling as a recommendation but as the law if the integrity of your data is important (which it is because you are looking at purchasing this).

What do you base this on?
Having looked at thousands of systems (yes thousands) a fairly large number of problems that plague computers are typically hard drive related. Apple laptops & desktops typically have much better cooling capabilities than Windows based computers. The same hard drives that go into Apple laptops are often the same ones that go into Windows, however, Apple seems to excel in cooling. Windows based machines vary in cooling based on Manufacturer, model and production year.

I have about 100 of these drives alongside around 700 other drives in use for my business. These are solid drives that just go and go. All issues that have cropped up have been the fault of overly narrow focused, assumption laden hardware RAID controllers. This is quickly worked around by just switching to HBA's and software RAID, which in combination with these drives has proven much more versatile.

These are measurably slower for me in all respects from the 7200rpm counterparts, but also run cooler. Every watt counts for me.
