     5.0 out of 5 stars 3TB for Synology NAS , 17th January 2012

    This is one of the select few 3TB drives from Synology approved for use in a variety of their NAS devices, so I’m in 4 of these in a DS411 SHR with a hard disk redundancy (basically RAID 5) While everyone will tell you, enterprise hard drives are better in RAID 5 or 6 configurations – and they are right, for the most part – it’s hard, the huge price difference would deny Enterprise. 3TB enterprise drives are well over $ 550 now by the recent Thailand flood and it may take some time until the price drops significantly. During these drives were not as cheap as the 3TB Caviar Green varieties, I will never in Caviar Greens one RAID 5 again, so that the ST3000DM001 quickly rose to the top of my admittedly short list.
    I think it is important to note that IntelliPower (WD) and CoolSpin (Hitachi) technologies are not really ideal for any type RAID arrays with parity. WD Caviar Green drives, especially, are sometimes not turn on when necessary known what ultimately fell to one of them from the RAID array. A good NAS like the DS411, the drives will be in hibernation after 10 minutes of inactivity, so you do not really need to take advantage of the “eco-friendly” drives in this type of RAID anyway. Plus, with 7,200, you get improvements in speed, it’s a no brainer, a Drive like this to select on those
    . This said, of course, this does not TLER, RAFF, and other benefits of enterprise-class drives. So you run the risk of more errors, RAID rebuilds and possible defaults by choosing a consumer drive like this, but even if the risk is greater, it is not really worth the money to 3TB enterprise-class, so I think this is a good compromise risk vs. value

    This review ( What is it )
    This review is from: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 7200 2 TB SATA 6 GB / s NCQ 64 MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive (Personal Computers)

    I dealt almost exclusively with WD in the last 10 years …. I had a run of bad luck with Seagate before and had sworn by them. Well, times have changed, and I’m ready to see if Seagate improved over the years has. Post-flood WD seems stuck on the absurd prices after other makers go slowly back down to reasonable prices. And I must say, price played a big role in these recent purchases … I refuse to pay more for a WD Green Drive when I pay for a Black drive twice a year ago … I just refuse to.
    In a non-raid environment seems to 2TB drive was too snappy out of the box, and has no error … so far so good. Just ordered 2 of the 3 TB diversity on the strength of this one.
    I see a lot of neg reviews lately for all manufacturers in all price ranges, it is my conviction that many DOAs have more to do with how handled the drives in transit do, as quality control. I’ve seen the way carriers throw the packets to get around the other, and have even seen them stand on packages. … no bubble wrap is to compensate for this type of abuse. Others complaints I’ve seen more to do with the ignorance of everything … who in their right mind one 2TB 3TB drive is housed in a 10 year old machine and are expecting it to work out of the box, without the use of manufactureres tool? Or is lightning fast when a SATA 6GB drive into a SATA 1.5GB port is connected? And if I have a further review in which an unsuspecting people can not understand why a 3 TB read reports as less than 3 TB in Windows … I scream
    , I think it stinks that warrantys been cut, and there is still the question in my mind when post-flood drives will be to meet the demand crashed off factorys up-to-snuff, or if all that fresh new equipment means a better product …. we are guessing will see. ”
    week perspective, I have no complaints about this drive. In the coming weeks, when I …. I’ll let ya know.

    VERY IMPORTANT: On Windows 7, 64-bit OS, you need the latest version of Intel’s Rapid Storage Technology (Intel RST) Drivers from Intel web site. 10.1 or higher. You need this before formatting drives. […] Even though this is a second storage HDD, you will most likely need a SATA power cable must be purchased. has always excellent results with Seagate drives had
