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 analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Great NAS HDDs at a good price compared to some other major retailers.
I ordered these due to the Prime expedited shipping that got them to me in just over 12hrs from order placement. Unfortunately however, the packaging by Amazon was absolutely woeful.
The 2 drives I ordered arrived in a padded satchel but the drives themselves were just sitting in their anti-static bags with no protection of any kind from each other or from moving around in the large empty space of the padded satchel.
Bad, bad, bad!
Currently running comprehensive tests on the disks before putting them into comission... next time I might stick with big name retailers if this is how Amazon package delicate electromechanical devices!
I ordered two disks and received them within one day. I liked the fact that they came from a different production batch so in case they will become faulty it's unlikely they both do that at the same time. No issues with the drives and I installed them in my NAS and all worked like a charm.
