David, Guisborough IT Professional

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Put two of these in a NAS enclosure, works a treat
Bad points:
when I bought them one was DOA - Dead On Arrival, which was replaced right away. This is why I gave the drive a low reliability score in my review. However the replacement is functioning fantastic.
