Unbelievably quiet

I have just purchased 2 of these drives for a new NAS I am building to replace my old noisy and slow Linksys 1 TB NAS, these drives are pretty quick ( although not the quickest ) and amazingly quiet so are perfect for a NAS that is in an occupied room as you cannot here the drives spinning up at all unless you are sat on top of the NAS . As you come to expect from OCUK ordered and dispatched in the same day and delivered in double quick time.


Very good quiet, low power draw drives

I purchased 5 of these a weeks ago at a cracking price of 89.99 each. Credit to OCUK, ordered these on Saturday, got them Monday :D. Thanks OCUK. They were packaged well ( as best they can in comparison to competitors ). I think the entire industry needs to figure out how to better ship mechanical drives, i.e. alternative to bubble wrap - nevertheless they survived the journey.

All 5 drives were attached to a Supermicro HBA SAS3 (IT flash) in a ZFS raidz1 pool and they have been humming along steadily since I put them online.

Only qualm I have is that these disks (a non issue really), unlike the black edition, appear to identify themselves as:
(maybe an issue with FreeBSD) -> though the black edition seems to report back fine.

instead of

Just a minor inconvenience of having to type %20 (space) multiple times when when setting up the pool by diskID.

Cracking drives, time will tell I guess.


Quiet performers

I bought a pair of these a little over 12 months ago to go with my Synology DS213 and I'm very impressed. Not the fastest drives you can buy but they run very quietly and perform perfectly well for their intended application.
