I had a Synology NAS report issues with a Red the other week and developed a couple of bad sectors after 385 days, but S.M.A.R.T test said everything was fine.
Took it back to the supplier (Computer Alliance) who tested it on the bench and supplied a warranty (3 years) replacement no questions asked.

AAAnd ANOTHER WD RED 4TB disk - much older (23,000 Power on hours) in my DS415+ started logging errors - that's 3 out of 6 that I've purchased. DSM had to map them out and recover from RAID5 parity this time. DSM is logging it as a warning, not failure but I tire of this.

With the nasty timebomb my 415+ has become with the Intel C2000 processor defect I'm considering an upgrade to something that has hardware transcoding, dropping PLEX on it and tossing enough HGST disks in it to have hotspare capability. Then I'll put this one out to pasture and sell off my 212+. Had it with these drives.

Default Ain't misbehavin' - No it is. WD RED issue

That's a pain. Were they all one batch? (Ie seq. serial numbers).

My mate has has now had 5 of his 10 drives go south - one every few months (all replaced under warranty). All were bought at the same time (5TB). He's on z2, so no loss but Very worrying all the same.

I'm still rocking 10 x 3TB HGST's from 2011 at preflood price of $140ea. Rare occasion that something worked out well in my life! I really need to swap them out as they are well past their use by date but what to buy that will as reliable?

The first two that failed were purchased at the same time and, presumably were from the same batch. They failed early: within about 9 months of purchase.
This latest one is well over 2 years old and had until now, like it's 3 bretheren (it's in a 4 disk array) been error free. These errors came up during a monthly array scrub, which just goes to show that the price of peace(of mind) is eternal vigilance - with apologies to John Curran

I still have 2TB Hitachi Coolspins bought for $89 pre Thai floods rocking along without issue. I have bought newer drives since (three), two of them have been RMA'd...
