Quiet cool, and hopefully durable

on 5/24/2008

I don't run a data center; I built this box for a home server. I selected this model instead of one of the new, green Caviars because of energy efficiency, the 5 year warranty and very long "mean time before failure". This model is more expensive than the consumer 1 terabyte models, but my time is valuable too, and I don't want to spend another day of my life recovering from a hard disk failure or crying over lost photos and movies. It's only been up and running for a couple of weeks, but so far I'm impressed. It runs cool, it's quick, and it's nearly silent. Ask me in five years about longevity; I hope it's as good as they say it is!

Sturdy, quiet and cool

on 1/31/2009

I used this drive as an upgrade in my Apple Time Capsule (upgraded from the stock 500GB drive to this 1TB one). It's easily twice as quiet, and I can notice that the Time Capsule puts off a bit less heat as well. Since it's on 24x7, it's important...and since it has all my Time Machine backups for 3 of my Mac's, it's high MTBF was critical. I am very impressed!

Product Overview

WD RE2-GP makes it possible for large scale data centers to increase storage capacity without exceeding available power, and in many cases actually reduce power consumption. WD RE2-GP drives help combat the four major challenges large data installations face total drive slots, maximum capacity, power allotment, and available operations expense budget while lowering the overall total cost of ownership.
