I didnt know that. I have 4 Wd reds in my NAS
Was tempted, however after reading customer reviews I see these are oem boxed and only warranted for 12 months.
My advice would be spend an extra £4 and get the 3 years warranty.........

Because if you have drives from the same batch, then when one fails, the stress of a RAID rebuild can easily cause another of the same age to fail, and if your RAID choice only has single drive redundancy, you'll lose ALL your data.

So, it's always best to buy a mix of drives, or different ages/batches if the same type

Or use dual redundancy e.g. ZFS RAID-Z2 or unraid with two parity drives.

Or use unraid with a single parity drive, where if you lose a second drive during a rebuild, the remaining good drives are still readable, so most of your data is still readable.
"Batteries - 1 Nonstandard Battery, batteries required."

Don't forgot to buy a couple of batteries to power your internal hard drive then.....
I have these in my unraid server and 4 years on not had a single one fail. My 3TB seagate drives on the other hand all failed.

Il be looking to swap out 2 of my 4TB WD reds with 8TB WD Reds when the price is right.

I was looking at buying 8tb WD Reds from amazon but reviews suggested they weren't even from Europe so they didn't have any WD Warranty at all. Ended up buying directly from WD
WD over Seagate every day....
Amazing price. Tempted to buy one as a spare for my RAID system...
Do not be tempted to purchase from Toral Thomas at £98. New store front. No rating. If you have purchased, get ready to claim from Amazon.
Now £103.12
