General Features

Fill Your NAS with WD Red
Built for 1 to 8-bay NAS systems, WD Red lets users store their data in one unit
NASware 3.0 Technology
Built into every WD Red hard drive, NASware 3.0's technology helps improves your system's storage performance by increasing compatibility, integration, upgradeability, and reliability
Built for NAS Compatibility
Desktop drives aren't purpose-built for NAS, but WD Red drives with NASware are. WD's technology helps takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. WD Red is for small NAS systems and WD's algorithm balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments
Desktop Drives vs. WD Red
Desktop hard drives are not designed for NAS environments. Do right by your NAS and choose a drive with an array of features to help preserve your data and maintain optimum performance. Take the following into consideration when choosing a hard drive for your NAS:
  • Compatibility: Without being tested for compatibility with your NAS system, improved performance is not guaranteed
  • Reliability: The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a hot one and desktop drives aren't typically tested in those conditions. WD Red is
  • Error Recovery Controls: WD Red NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures within the NAS system. Desktop drives are not typically designed for RAID environments where this can be an issue
  • Noise and Vibration Protection: Designed to operate solo, desktop drives offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration faced in a multi-drive system. WD Red drives are designed for multi-bay NAS systems
  • WD Red for Home
    Stream, backup, share, and organize your digital content at home with a NAS and WD Red drives designed to share content to the devices in your home. Red NASware helps increase your drives' compatibility with your devices, TV, stereo, and more
    WD Red for Small Business
    WD Red is a good hard drive choice for 1 to 8 bay systems. NASware 3.0 allows for integration with your existing network so WD Red can share and backup files at the speed of your business. For larger businesses with up to 16 bays, use WD Red Pro
    3D Active Balance Plus
    This helps ensure your data is protected from excessive vibration and noise in a NAS or RAID environment. This dual-plane balance control helps reduce the degradation of your drive over time
    Reliability
    Since your NAS system is always on, a reliable drive is essential. With an MTBF of up to 1 million hours, the WD Red drive with NASware 3.0 is designed for 24x7 environments
    Cooler Operations
    By reducing power consumption, the operating temperature of your NAS stays cooler. With a lower temperature in your system, you can create a more reliable solution for your NAS

    6TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from RED failed after a year. I have had many many drives over the last 20 years. I have been fairly lucky in that I have had only 2 drives cause a system failure, but both drives were more than 2 years old. This drive is on my Synology and I have had it for 1 year and 1 month. Woke up this morning after streaming the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving for Thanksgiving last night to a constant beeping. Says volume 1 crashed and now I need to get a backup. I will buy another RED because it has the right capacity, is fairly quiet, and has performed well up to this point. My other 2 RED drives are working just fine. But I am not happy about a failure this soon into ownership of a drive.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I bought 2 of these drives to use for backing up data from all different drives over the years. I installed as internal drives and doing a Manual Raid 1 :) I loaded all files in one drive and manually copy the whole content to another drive. It's working very well although the time it took quite a bit to transfer the nearly full drive, 5TB full of data. One drive will be the backup and lock up in the firesafe box. The other drive of data will be used to transfer to the raid 5 to be built soon. I have five 4TB WD NAS comming tomorrow to build raid 5 to be used for data redundancy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good I picked up 4 of these drives and have them running in a RAID5 on a 3ware 9650se-8lpml right now. Write speeds were consistently around 120mb/sec for 12tb of data. Will migrate to an 8 disk RAID6 in the next couple months.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware of WD Red Drives I ordered 11 of these drives for my NAS system. Even though they were ALL brand new sealed in a box, 2 of them failed immediately. One reported bad sectors and the other would not initialize at all. I think WD has a problem with QA on this series. Poor quality.
    Date published: 2017-06-26
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad Sectors on 1 of 2 drives One of two drives showed sector defects on TechTool Pro and on Promise RAID App. RMA for exchange was quick and easy (including prepaid return postage via UPS)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't get any better for NAS I use these in a Synology DS2415+. Performance is amazing. Doesn't get any better. Have had zero problems.
    Date published: 2015-05-08
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent drives for NAS I upgraded from 2 3TB WD Red to 2 6TB WD Red in my Synology DS716+II NAS. The old drives were still going strong and never had a problem. I just needed more storage capacity for the NAS. The transition was smooth and I fully expect the larger drives to be as reliable as the old ones. I will put the old ones to use in Vantec USB 3.1 drive enclosures. WD Red drives are quiet and reliable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good drive for NAS Purchased four of these drives to use in a Synology NAS. Overall these drives do what they are designed to do - store a large amount of data in a NAS environment, at a relatively low cost. Drives are quiet and seem reliable so there are no complaints here. Other than these drives operating at 5400 RPM there are not many downsides we can see with these drives.
