WD WD6002FRYZ overview

  • 1Description

The 6TB Gold 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal Datacenter HDD from WD delivers 6TB of storage capacity for high-availability servers and storage arrays. This 3.5" drive operates using a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 128MB cache, and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, all of which help to ensure a sustained rate of up to 226 MB/s. It comes armed with HelioSeal Helium technology that enables up to 26 percent lower power consumption when compared to a standard drive. With an error tolerance of <1 in 1015, an MTBF of 2.0 million hours, an AFR of 0.44%, it is well suited for small- to medium-scale enterprise environments that require a durable and reliable storage drive. In addition to the drive's performance and reliability features, Western Digital offers a 24/7 premium support line and includes Acronis True Image WD Edition cloning software.

Workload Capability
Delivering both performance and reliability to any datacenter environment, WD Gold hard drives are designed to handle workloads up to 550TB per year.
Reliability
With a MTBF of up to 2.0 million hours, WD Gold hard drives deliver reliability and durability for yearly operation (24x7x365) within demanding storage environments.
Disk Utilities and Migration Tools
Acronis True Image WD Edition can clone drives as well as backup your operating system, applications, settings, and all of your data, while also having the ability to wipe any data you no longer need securely. You can quickly and easily deploy a new hard drive to your PC or laptop and automatically migrate your operating system, applications, and all of your important data.
RAID-Specific, Time-Limited Error Recovery (TLER)
Reduces the drive's fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.
Extended Thermal Burn-in Test
Each drive is put through extended burn-in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation.
Dynamic Fly Height and Dual Actuators
A head positioning system with two actuators that improves positional accuracy over the data track. The primary actuator provides coarse displacement using conventional electromagnetic actuator principles. The secondary actuator uses piezoelectric motion to fine tune the head positioning to a higher degree of accuracy.

    WD WD6002FRYZ reviews

    6TB Gold 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal Datacenter HDD is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Louder than the WD Red Pro I purchased the 6TB gold because it would cost less than the lower model Red Pro when you factor in the free shipping for the gold. I installed it into my array configured JBOD and noticed roughly the same peformance as the other two WD Red Pro which were also 6 TB and 7200 rpm. The only difference I could notice is the sound. The red pro had a lower tone and was quiet, while the gold had more of a higher and hollow sounding clicking noise. The gold is much more audible. It is not as loud as one of my HGST drives, but it is noticable as it sounds different than any of my other 6 drives from various manufacturers. If you are using this on an array on your desktop, I would recommend you look at the red pro if you want it to be a bit quieter.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Check Warranty With WD Immediately Upon Receipt! Great drives, but this review is in regard to the warranty status when purchased from B&H. I ordered 3x WD6002FRYZ-01WD5B1, and they all came up with 3 years of warranty instead of 5. I had to contact WD support more than once to get it straightened out. Although in the end, the warranties were updated to the correct duration, they gave me no explanation as to why they did not have full warranties in the first place. I purchased a 4th WD6002FRYZ-01WD5B1 from another online retailer, and that one had the full 5 year warranty. This is not the first time this has happened with WD drives purchased from B&H. The last time, the set of drives I purchased turned out to be "gray market" OEM drives with no warranty at all. That time, it took a lot of calls to WD and B&H to get it sorted out, and ultimately I got an extra year of warranty from WD for my hassle. Thus...Check your warranties with WD immediately upon receipt!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Drive for NAS Easy to install in NAS and works great. Great experience with BHPhoto. Only problem is with Western Digital over the warranty length, after registering the drives on their site, have had to open a ticket to get them to show 5 year warranty from date of purchase, probably going to ultimately require me to call as the persons contacted on their website don't seem to be all that motivated and might be because they seem to be overseas.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great so far Purchased 10 of these drives over the past year as I have slowly switched out 10 slots of aging 2TB drives from my synology server. All great so far with no hiccups. Temperature good and noise even better than my seagates before. With 5yr warranty, it's just what I wanted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is a good HD I bought 2 WD 6TB to use as Raid 0. I only have it since two weeks. I am happy with the performance, Black Magic HD speed testing showed an average of 218 Mb/s each one and 430 Mb/s in Raid 0 . It is very good for video editing.
    Date published: 2018-10-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hard Drive Have replaced 2 Seagate Constellation ES.2 in my Synology server with these drives, could not be happier. No issues whatsoever, both run cooler than the Seagate drives, 2MIL MTBF rating. 5 year warranty. Highly recommended!
    Date published: 2017-08-30
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I/O error I have try to love those hard drive, I bought 3 but in first time of use. I already have I/O error, corrupted my files and I can't copy one file form on folder to another folder in synology nas 1517+ to be specific.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good service Order procedure was online yet clear. Received order essentially on time (though delayed a day due to national holiday). Product was delivered just as expected in first class (new) condition. Good service!
