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

Comment: "...the WD Red is a purpose-built drive that solves the NAS storage problem like no other drive does..."

Experience: 90 Days

It's only been 90 days of running so far inside of a 2nd Gen Drobo, but no problems so far. Hardly a lengthy test at this point. Purchased on sale, good buy. (Read More)

Low power and reliable for 24/7 NAS. (Read More)

Experience: 1 Weeks

These are great drives for NAS and general backup. The value per GB isn't the best for HDDs but you get a nice 3 year warranty with WD. (Read More)

Experience: 1 Months

Overall, the WD Reds are what I think of first when it comes to filling a NAS. More expensive than some other brands, but worth it for the reliability. (Read More)

Experience: 30 Days
 Verified Owner
Always go with WD. WD hard drives are simply the most rounded hard drive I've ever used. Even when damaged, they seem to fail in a "soft" manner whereby data is still recoverable whereas other drives in failure may leave files as recoverable. (Read More)

Used with NAS and works great. No issues with my Synology NAS. (Read More)

Experience: 1 Months

This appears to be a reliable drive for NAS purposes. My RAID has started to lose the original drives and I am now replacing those with the Red line. So far, these have performed very well, but the real performance will only be determined over time. (Read More)

Experience: 60 Days
 Verified Owner
I have 2 dual drive synology NAS. Disappointed one of the red drives failed as it is supposed be specifically designed for this. (Read More)
