Features

Optimized for RAID environments, keep your important data safe!

The WD Reds are part of the WD hard drive family which consists of five different colours: blue, green, purple, red and black. They all have different purposes and while they are all quite similar, they are all fine tuned to perform a particular task or be fit for a certain type of application. The WD Reds are designed for use in RAID, designed to protect your important files while still providing optimal performance. It features TLER which stands for time-limited error recovery, this is useful because most RAID controllers will drop a hard drive from the RAID array if there is no response for a couple of seconds. TLER helps prevent the RAID controller dropping the drive by aborting the recovery process if it takes more than 7 seconds which means your data transfer won't be interrupted. They also feature vibration reduction, which helps stabilize the drives when they are used together making it possible to put these in an 8 bay NAS. The speed of which these drives spin at are determined by Intellipower, which is WDs optimzed speed to power ratio for the drives, ranging from 5400 to 7200 rpm, making these drives a lot more efficient. If you are after a drive to protect your data in a small RAID environment, the WD Reds are the perfect choice.

The WD Red family just got bigger

Our formula of success has led to the growth of WD Red into the highest capacities possible. Available up to 6 TB, WD offers an even broader, more comprehensive portfolio of NAS solutions for our customers spanning from a total of 1 to 16 bays. The WD Red family just got bigger.

NASware grows to 3.0

Built off of our determination to deliver the best NAS experience, NASware 3.0 extends our promise by further optimizing WD Red for the NAS environment with added support for 6 to 8 NAS bays. WD Red now supports small NAS systems from 1 to 8 bays thanks to NASware 3.0, which further improves drive compatibility and reliability. At 48 TB of total capacity in an 8 bay system, WD Red expands your NAS experience.

Professional solutions

With capacities up to 4 TB, WD Red Pro carries a 5-year limited warranty and was engineered to handle the increased workloads from your business.

WD Red all the way!

18 October 2018
Added one of these to my media server, it replaced an external box running 4x HDD's, painless and seamless install & setup, plus ongoing power savings and a much less complex setup. Great value

Reliable NAS drive

5 June 2018
I have been incrementally replacing the hard drives in my NASwith these as the old seagate ones fail. I have had no problems with these drives, and what more can you ask for from a hard drive.

Brought 2 of these for my NAS unit and although one unit was DOA, PBTech was very good at getting a replacement unit to me. Other than that, I expect these drives to function well over a period of time and with a three year warranty, it's a reasonably safe bet.
