Great choice for NAS Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

Cool and Quiet
Built for NAS
Cons
Price
Summary
Picked up a pair of these to use in a custom NAS. Have them running in a poorly ventilated case stuffed in the bottom corner of the closet. They hit a solid 35* when running which isn't that much higher than the case temp.

No bad or reallocated sectors according to SMART data, and they run plenty fast for my purposes

Awesome for first RAID.

Pros

- Very high storage capacity/cost value
- Excellent customer support
- Good reliability
- Low power consumption
Cons
- Drive performance (5400 rpm)
Summary
Bought 4 drives on February 2013.

Installed them on Tyan Thunder n3600b (S2927). The board's raid controller (nVidia nForce Pro 3600) could only see them as 1TB drives.

So, I bought an LSI Raid controller (PCIe 8x) and they worked 24/7 ever since (4x 3TB in Raid 5 = 9TB Volume unformatted).

Then, as a random checkup in 2015, the LSI Software reports that one of the drives failed. WD sent me a replacement drive very quickly, without hassle... and it was a 5TB (they were out of 3TB). I didn't have to pay for the difference !

The drives are in my server which hosts FTP, Universal Media Server and other services which require their constant use.

I recommend that product to anyone needing a "pro grade" home/office storage.

In a world where a NAS specific drive exits...

Pros

Cost per GB (when on sale)
Reliability
TLER
Cons
The fact that NAS specific hard drives are a thing
Summary
After the early failure of 2 of my 8 Seagate ST3000DM001 I read the case study at BackBlaze and their experience with that drive. Purchasing nearly $1k in drives is a significant investment for any casual home user, and speaking with Seagate my only option was to continue to swap them out while under warranty.
These WD drives have worked great and have been in service 24/7 for the past 2 years.
These WD drives contain TLER.
In a perfect world I wouldn't need to know what TLER is. My drives would support it, and the firmware would be smart enough to detect when located inside of a RAID environment, and be enabled when needed.
I enjoy enterprise features moving to consumer drives, however all the different types of consumer drives on the market at the moment are rather foolish. I remember when the only difference between drives besides the interface was buffer size and RPM. You shouldn't have to read through the white papers of drive firmware to see if its compatible for your usage.

Pros

They hold data.
Cons
Out of the 4 I've owned, 2 failed completely and 1 never worked right out of the box.
Summary
But they are supposed to be made specifically for NAS.. Not like a desktop computer that is used everyday and powers up over and over. A NAS only powers up when used, or via schedule, so why did the drive fail only months after the warranty was up?

Love this drive Verified OwnerVerified Owner

Pros

None died yet
Cons
They do not last forever.
Summary
I have 8 of this drive in a Supermicro 846 on an Adaptec 5805 that's on and having security footage begin written to it 24/7. none have failed yet.

Experience: 1 weeks

Pros

- great value - high capacity - lowtemps
Cons
- 5400rpm
Summary
Great hard drive for a NAS or a Desktop if speed is not crucial. Reliable and affordable (specially when on sale), but slightly slower than 7200rpm drives.

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
