Pros
Decent Capacity, Good Speeds for NAS
Cons
Slight price premium for NAS compatibility
Summary
I have 9 of these now in total running in a couple QNAP NAS (5x a year ago, 4x a month ago). No issues yet, they perform reliably, don't cause dropouts, and no noticeable bottlenecks in terms of speed.

I was able to get them for cheaper a year ago, than I could a month ago, but still fairly close together.
I would not hesitate to get more of these if I needed them for a NAS. I would stick with the WD Red Brand.

Pros
Large, fast and quiet.
Cons
Getting a bit pricy due to lower Canadian dollar
Summary
This 3TB Red works well. Tested write speeds and although it's not as fast as the Black series, it is fast enough for backups and general use.

Summary
Got 4 of these with a QNAP TS-431. Drives work as they should. Good value for NAS-grade drives.

Pros
Good price per GB
Cons
could use longer warranty
Summary
Used to upgrade media storage. So far so good. Pricematched it down to 129$.

Pros
Excellent price per GB, good for NAS
Cons
Warranty is a bit short
Summary
I'm moving up the drives in my storage appliance from 1TB WD Caviar Black, which served me well. Two of three drives died in five years, and were replaced without fuss. Now 3 TB is the sweet spot for price per GB. WD wants us to use Red drives, rather than desktop drives, for NAS and storage appliance. Choose Red Pro over Red to get a 5 year warranty.

Pros
Quite the little beast
Cons
A little noisy
Summary
This is quite the hard disk - 3TB is plenty (for most people!) and it's rated for a long long life... I wish the warranty was a tad longer and the drive was a bit quieter, but otherwise this one is highly recommended for NAS usage.

Pros
Good Read/Write Speeds, Very Quiet
Cons
None so far.
Summary
Only had this thing for a day, and I dumped all of my old stuff on to it. It's very quiet unlike my old drive, and the read and writes speeds are average as expected. You get exactly what you pay for, definitely would recommend either on its own or in a RAID array. Not sure how long it will last, but I'd expect a while from Western Digital.

Pros
Quiet, low temp
Cons

Summary
Had these drive in a high usage NAS, so far no issues, seem to be much cooler then the existing drives they replaced.

Pros
Work Great
Cons
None
Summary
I always order my drive from NCIX because they handle and ship there drive the right ways, I had many bad drive from other web site, I 'm not suprise that the overall drivs have better Customer rating in here then on the other site...
Hope the drive last at least 5 years :)

Pros
Lots of space (obviously)
Pretty quick speeds
Cons
None
Summary
I've had the drive for a very short time but my first impressions of it are that it's quite nice to have. I have a 2TB Black which of course is nice, but now that I have a 3TB really stable drive I can have multiple back ups and it just feels really good to have those things safe (mostly, can't always trust technology 100% IMO) But overall really glad I got this drive, and the pricing is decent as well.

Comment: Both the 3TB and 1TB version are the most energy efficient and quiet models we've tested in their respective capacities. Seek noise is almost nonexistent and vibration levels are excellent.

Comment: Western Digital's Red family is a well-rounded offering aimed at home- and SOHO-based NAS appliances. The Red drives aren’t as attractive once you step outside of Western Digital's target usage model of small business network-attached storage and into more demanding professional application
