Dependable storage drive Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Dependable drive with good running temperature and 3 yr warranty
Cons
none
Summary
Straight forward installation - install, connect, and format. Installed as part of a two drive raid.

Excellent drive for its intended purpose

Pros

- Fully support RAID configurations
- 3 years warranty
- Quiet and efficient
Cons
- Expensive compared to regular drives
Summary
This drive is optimized for NAS storage and serves its purpose very well.

Low power and rotational speed means that this drive should have no problems with enclosed NAS cases with limited airflow; and the full RAID support ensures that there should be no compatibility issues with small to medium drive arrays.

The performance is good, but the this drive remains slower than most 7200RPM drives. To me, this is not an issue; if I wanted speed I would have bought a SSD.

Also an excellent drive for home servers, HTPC, etc.

Only issue is that the price is quite a bit higher than regular desktop drives of the same capacity, but the extended warranty makes up for this.

Good perceived quality for the red serries

Pros

-Quiet
-Runs cool in a rack of 4
Cons
-Expensive
Summary
I haven't had problems with reds, other than 1 bought on ebay, which I had to warranty. Then the replacement also failed within a few weeks.

The great thing about this batch I received which I believe has the latest nasware, is that there was no need for idle3 for disable. LCC count stays very low as my other reds which had to go through idle3

RED

Pros

-3TB
-Price to size ratio (at the time of sale)
-Warranty
Cons
-OEM, doesn't come with anything else
Summary
Good HDD that is currently being used for my Backup.
Running 24/7 and seems to be holding up okay.

Experience: 7 Weeks

Pros

It's fast, quiet, and didn't make my fans work any harder than they already were to keep my computer at a safe temperature.
Cons
It's not really clear exactly what makes this a "performance" hard drive without doing fairly intense research into the differences between WD's purple, blue, red, green, and black hard drives. The blue hard drive is about 35% cheaper and is probably a better value for the money.
Summary
I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a "top-notch" hard drive in their (HT)PC. For users who don't care about the extra speed and only need the 1 TB of space, I'd tell them they'd probably be better off buying a WD Blue HDD (if you need more space, go with the black since the blue doesn't go bigger than 1 TB to my knowledge).

Nothing so far.

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.

URL: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/red-wd20efrx-wd30efrx-nas,3248.htm
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
