To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I use WD Red's in all NAS's and have never had a problem with them. This one arrived on time and was packaged well. I installed it in my Synology DS216play and had it up and running in minutes. WD Red HDD's are a bit more expensive than other brands but my history with them has always been positive so I'm willing to spend the little extra for their reliability. I will definitely buy one again.
1.0 out of 5 starsAwful drives that are not meant for nas

I bought 6 of these to use in a raid 5 array but was forced to use as a mirror with one spare drive. these HDD do not play well with raid 5 as they are Shingled, despite the misleading "NAS" specification, these drives are not meant for nas. DO NOT USE if you're planning to set them up in parity as they can't be rebuild.
