WD NAS hard drives are the essential solution for NAS applications. These drives are cool and quiet, and offer optimum compatibility in 24x7 NAS systems with up to eight bays.

Storage for 1 to 8 bay NAS solutions - WD Red™ is designed specifically for NAS systems that have 1 to 8 drive bays in both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch form factors. The drives are designed and extensively tested for compatibility in the unique 24x7 operating environment and for the demanding system requirements of home and small office NAS.

NASware grows to 3.0 - WD Red now supports small NAS systems from 1 to 8 bays thanks to NASware 3.0, which further improves drive compatibility and reliability. At 48 TB of potential capacity in an 8 bay system, WD Red expands your NAS experience.

Need help? We offer premium support - Every WD Red hard drive comes with our world-class professional support services including a premium dedicated 24/7 support line (available in English, other regional support hours vary) and a 3-year limited warranty.*

* Support outside of normal business hours is available in English only. Go to http://support.wd.com for further details.

3D Active Balance Plus - Our enhanced dual-plane balance control technology significantly improves the overall drive performance and reliability. Hard drives that are not properly balanced may cause excessive vibration and noise in a multi-drive system, reduce the hard drive life span, and degrade the performance over time.

Longer warranty coverage - WD NAS hard drives are backed by a 3-year limited warranty for greater peace of mind.

Unbelievably quiet

I have just purchased 2 of these drives for a new NAS I am building to replace my old noisy and slow Linksys 1 TB NAS, these drives are pretty quick ( although not the quickest ) and amazingly quiet so are perfect for a NAS that is in an occupied room as you cannot here the drives spinning up at all unless you are sat on top of the NAS . As you come to expect from OCUK ordered and dispatched in the same day and delivered in double quick time.

Very good quiet, low power draw drives

I purchased 5 of these a weeks ago at a cracking price of 89.99 each. Credit to OCUK, ordered these on Saturday, got them Monday :D. Thanks OCUK. They were packaged well ( as best they can in comparison to competitors ). I think the entire industry needs to figure out how to better ship mechanical drives, i.e. alternative to bubble wrap - nevertheless they survived the journey.

All 5 drives were attached to a Supermicro HBA SAS3 (IT flash) in a ZFS raidz1 pool and they have been humming along steadily since I put them online.

Only qualm I have is that these disks (a non issue really), unlike the black edition, appear to identify themselves as:
(maybe an issue with FreeBSD) -> though the black edition seems to report back fine.

%20%20%20%20%20WD-WCC4N11*****
instead of
WD-WCC4N11*****

Just a minor inconvenience of having to type %20 (space) multiple times when when setting up the pool by diskID.

Cracking drives, time will tell I guess.

Quiet performers

I bought a pair of these a little over 12 months ago to go with my Synology DS213 and I'm very impressed. Not the fastest drives you can buy but they run very quietly and perform perfectly well for their intended application.
