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.

Make sure the model number is correct

Western Digital have recently (April 2020) announced that their 2TB-6TB are now using SMR as opposed to CMR.
I just had two of these drives delivered which fortunately had the EFRX model number denoting that they are the older CMR drives as opposed to the SMR drives which have a EFAX model number.

Make sure that you understand the difference if you are ordering these for NAS use. I've been using these drives for the last 6 years and have had no issues with the CMR drives so can't fault them there. Can fault them (and hence three stars) for not being up front about the changes to the product.

Bought these from PB Tech - a little more expensive than elsewhere, but made easier by being able to collect from PB Tech with other parts of my order. Very happy with the outcome.

Good value and good performance

Slightly more expensive per gigabyte of storage compared to smaller capacity red drives but it has been performing well since i installed it. I think the extra cost is worth not needing to buy a new drive as often.

It does what you want

Bought for a Synology NAS and, for what it's worth, after four months it's still running flawlessly and quietly. Set and forget basically.

WD 4TB Red 3.5" SATA3 HDD

Another excellent item from WD for the NAS server. I have been using WD for a couple of years now, and always went or the WD RED type, because these have never failed me. Compared to standard drives these are well worth buying, excellent price-item ratio.
