User reviews

This is an enterprise-grade drive, so it's reliable, reasonably fast, and has a good warranty. It's also power-hungry, runs a little warm, and can be loud, but that's to be expected. I have nearly 20 of these drives and have only ever had one die on me. They can also run up to 5 C hotter than the WD Red drives at idle, and more than that under heavy load. They are also noticeably louder than the WD Red drives. I don't have a decibel reading or anything, but it might get annoying if you have these drives a few feet from your desk, but then again these are designed for servers. They are more expensive than other 3 TB drives, but if you're someone who needs durable drives you'll appreciate their reliability and extra warranty.
Packaged in a well-padded box and testing drives showed no issues. I would buy again from goharddrive for my next ESXi.
So far, so good. While not as great or quite as my SSD it has been great as my primary storage drive.
