Hi there, I would like to report that my ThermalTake Max 5G enclosure has been running just
fine with a WD20EURS 2tb on one of my HR24s for well over a year. The bad news is that the
EURS just failed and it is out of warranty. Ugh! (I had used the drive in another applacation for some
Out of all of the WD 2tb drives offered, is there another model that would be a better choice
than to replace it with another WD20EURS????
I am of the opinion that the EURS is problematic. Enough posts have been made about this to draw that conclusion. To add to all those posts, I've never had any success with an EURS drive. Admittedly, I don't have a lot of patience with HDDs, but I'd avoid the EURS line. I really don't know what's inside my owned HRs. I should have kept better track of the models when I put them in. None are EURS drives, I know that. And none have ever failed (that's only true of my 2TB internal drives). I do know I've had one EARX running in a TT dock for over two years on a 24-100 that is leased. That's the only external drive I have left.
I find it interesting that I've never lost a 2TB drive when installed internally. Not that I've lost many HDDs, but they seem to be much happier inside an HR than externally. I'm rapping my knuckles on a wooden table as I write this.
Now, everyone can post and tell us how wonderfully their EURS is running. Won't change my mind about them. I'd still recommend avoiding them.
