Stay away from this product. I bought 4 of these due to the high ratings back in Nov 2016. This is for my NAS7004T. As of March 2017 one has already failed, looking at the warranty I'm better off buying a new one (other brand) then shipping this back on my own dime only to get a refurbished one....So much for the HST 5y full warranty!These were new drives bought from dbsky seller...
Wonderful product, I always use HGST drives in my home network, the oldest one I bought almost 5 years ago is still running fine, no problem at all.These two drives came on time as promised, I installed in a NAS enclosure in RAID 0 configuration (yes, I am confident enough!), performance is very fast even from a remote access point of view. The drive is very quiet, and initiation and configuration into a RAID configuration are fast and painless.The drive has a manufactured date of 12/2016, so it is a relatively new drive.I will report the durability a little bit later, I just installed the drives in my NAS unit.
So far so good! Looks to be legit and new. Some sellers are selling refurbed used drives. As far as I could tell the one I bought from Vinetec was brand new, just like they said it would be when I asked before purchasing it. I'd like to buy a few more before they are gone as WD has bought the company and I don't think they are making them anymore. I believe these are new old stock.
