Is this drive good?

Recommended Posts

Maybe. I think I did a search for 4 TB drives for my NAS/video editing server, and I ended up getting 8 WD Reds, each for $89.99. They were all good upon arrival, and still going strong to this day.

Note about Fry's: Fry's is very good about returning defective or poorly performing electronics. Their normal return with no questions asked is 90 days but they very often extend that timeline if you complain loudly enough.

 

On another note - for a number of years Deskstars were used exclusively in Dell Inspiron laptops. Doesn't mean that they are that great. Just means that Dell got one hell of a good deal on a bulk purchase.

 

Me personally - I would prefer a WD Black, but, it would cost you about $90 more.

I have a few hundred Deskstars at work in a very unfriendly environment/workload. They're pretty decent IMO.
