Replacement for MyCloud by James
Hi, My 2tb WD MyCloud NAS was knocked off the desk by my cat and hit the floor hard, not willing to go to the expense of data recovery specialists as the data wasn't important, I tried it, an it sounds like the read/write heads inside are bent or off the ramp. This hard drive looks the same, if I take the nas logic board off the broken drive and put it on this one, then put it back in the housing it should work exactly the same shouldn't it?? Or will I need to write an image file to the new drive?
This drive will be fine to go into that NAS Drive, unfortunately it doesn't seem as simple as changing the hard drive, you will have to add certain files to the drive itself, you will be able to find guides online to do this.
Dell Precision T3400 by pdizer
Will these work in a Dell Precision T3400 / Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz / Dell Inc. 0TP412 (CPU)? Using as home server, I want to put in 2 , one for bu. Alternatively, I am also looking at your 2TB Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 or your 2TB Toshiba DT01ACA200. Your advice would be appreciated.
Many thanks, Peter
As long as it has sata support I cannot see an issue with this. If you are wanting to run it in raid I would suggest checking the motherboard has support for this.
Its a Good One by 2TB Western Digital Red SATA lll
I purchased this WD 2tb SATA111 (red) HDD to replace a 1.5tb Samsung that had decided to give up working after 15 months of very light use, much the same as an identical Samsung did after 10 months, luckily I got that one exchange under warranty but don't intend to keep it for much longer. The WD is not only a very quiet drive it is surprisingly fast, plus being the "red" version is likely to be a lot more reliable and should last a lot longer. A very good purchase at a reasonable price, throw in the exceptional service you get from Aria and you go away a very happy customer. An excellent hard drive that continues to impress. No more Samsung's for me.1166 of 2422 people rated this review as helpful
2Tb WD Red by markh
I purchased this drive for use with a DNS343 4 bay NAS and it works perfectly, and is very quiet. If using for a Nas box make sure that it is compatible as i took the risk that it would work with my nas box, and luckily for me it did.1222 of 2459 people rated this review as helpful
restock ETA by Marinos
Do you guys have any ETA for restocking these drives?
These are back in stock, we only have a VERY small amount of stock available so order now if you want them. Western Digital released these drives around 2 months ago and somehow ran out of stock so we have had issues getting hold of them!
