I have several. They are just as reliable as name brand drives if not more so. I get mine from GoHarddrive / Apehouse and their customer service is stellar. I've only had to use it a couple of times tho. The last one was a drive that was 2 weeks out of warranty and they honored it anyway. Good people to do business with.

Just bought 6 x 6TB 7200RPM 128MB drives from memorylabs. I asked the seller what the drives were based on and he said they were Toshiba MG04ACA600e. I was able to do $147/drive by paying via PayPal invoice instead of going through eBay. If they perform as expected, I think that was a pretty decent deal considering the drives are enterprise drives with error correcting.

Otherwise I was going to purchase a pair of WD My Book Duo 16TB which contain 8TB Reds (contain 2 year warranty).

Just wanted to follow up on the HDDs that I bought. They were, indeed, Toshiba MG04ACA600e. I ran some benchmarks and was able to get 220 MB/s read/write. Not bad.

Currently running badblocks to make sure they're fully functional.
