Works well enough, but high failure rate. I have 5 of these in my Synology NAS and within 2 years, I have raised 3 RMAs. Replacement drives too take a long time to dispatch even after acknowledgement of receipt.

Now that the warranties have run out, I am waiting to replace them with something else one at a time (hopefully) as they fail.

Given their high failure rates, I would only recommend using them in RAID with a reliable casing.
