The reviews are very mixed. Otherwise would've jumped on this.

Somehow I bet this is a green drive inside, even thought WD now maks "nas" drives with the Red line.

Reviews of Red drives makes me hope this has a green drive inside...

This was $99 in the past month... mixed reviews make this a gamble at $175 even though that's a good 10-12% lower than everywhere else.

Seemed to be a function of how they were packed for shipping.

I've got 7 with 0 DOA and 0 bad sectors and 7 clean extended SMART tests.

edit: One factor for the reviews seems to be that Adorama and Newegg pack poorly. Mine were all Amazon packed.

I sincerely doubt the 3TB version has ever been $99.....

According to camelcamelcamel the lowest this has ever been from Amazon is $169.99. Camel price history

The 2TB version is what was $99.

Also: You won't find any NAS drives on Amazon with stellar reviews. All are "mixed." I think this is partly a function of the "people with bad experiences are more likely to write a review" phenomenon, and also the fact that NAS drives are more complicated than typical external drives, thus more room for trouble.

All I can say is that I own two of these (in the 2 TB flavor) and they've worked flawlessly.
