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.

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.

Got another WD Red for my NAS. As expected, all is sweet. Plugged straight in and voila, more space. WD Red the way to go if you want bang for buck when it comes to NAS storage. I have 3 now and never an issue. Love them

3TB NAS Drive

10 February 2018
We put one of these in our new QNAP TS-451A a couple of weeks ago. So far we have had no issues and it runs perfectly. We got this one to give us a bit more storage space than a 2TB drive.

So far so good. Bought this as a replacement for an older NAS drive that fell over after 7 years of use, so hope this lasts as long.
Very quiet.
