Eight RAID Modes Configurable by DIP Switches or Software
Eight RAID modes, configurable by the DIP switches on the rear of the enclosure or via the included software, offer a variety of options for managing and backing up your data. Choose from RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, and 10, as well as Normal (JBOD), Span (Big/Large), and Clone modes, to handle striping, mirroring, redundancy, and parity.
Included Software for Advanced Operations
Included software helps you manage your RAID systems and installed hardware. View information about the current RAID mode and the hard disks installed in the enclosure, set multiple RAID modes in an enclosure, view and save event logs, update firmware, and configure RAID settings. The software is available for both Windows and Mac operating systems.
USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire 800, and FireWire 400 ports
The DRD-401 is equipped with five ports for flexible connectivity. USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire 400, and two FireWire 800 ports, plus the included high-speed connection cables, make it easy to connect the DRD-401 to most computers. The dual FireWire 800 ports also enable daisy-chaining with compatible devices.
Maximum Transfer Rates of up to 5.0 Gbps
When plugged into your computer's USB 3.0 port, the DRD-401 can attain transfer rates of up to 5.0 Gbps via the included USB 3.0 cable.
Aluminum Construction and Large Quiet Fan
The DRD-401 employs a dual-element cooling system to prevent overheating when working for long periods of time. The aluminum construction dissipates heat, while a single large fan cools the drives with maximum efficiency and minimum noise.
The DRD-401 allows hot swapping, so you won't have to shut down your computer every time you install a hard disk.
Front-Loading, Tray-Less Drive Bays
Installing your hard disks is easy. Instead of dismantling your computer, just pop the disk drives into the easily accessible, front-loading drive bays. The bays are tray-less, eliminating the need for drive carriers, screwdrivers, or other installation tools. When removing your disks from the enclosure, the bay doors prevent jams by automatically ejecting the disk as you open the door.
Locking Bay Doors
As an added security measure, the bay doors lock with the included hex key to prevent them from inadvertently opening.
LED Status Indicators
Each drive bay is furnished with a status LED to indicate when the corresponding disk drive is powered or reading and writing.
The DRD-401 beeps continuously to let you know if one of your disks is damaged. As an extra security measure for your data backup, an integrated chipset can automatically rebuild your RAID mode 1, 3, 5, or 10 array when you replace the damaged disk with a new one.
Overcurrent and Short-Circuit Protection
The DRD-401's circuit design integrates overcurrent and short-circuit protection to help optimize data security and safeguard your drives against damage.
Intelligent Sleep Mode
The DRD-401 is programmed with an intelligent sleep mode to save energy and reduce wear and tear on your disk drives. If the data connection cable is unplugged or there's no read/write activity on the installed disk drives for five minutes, the DRD-401 will automatically enter sleep mode and the fan will power down.
4 x WD 6TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD
Designed with home and small office/business customers in mind, the 6TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD from WD is well-suited for NAS environments with up to eight 3.5" drive bays. Engineered to handle increased workloads, this 6TB drive operates using a SATA III 6 Gb/s interface, a 64MB cache, and a rotational speed of 5400 rpm, all of which help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers with a sustained rate of up to 175 MB/s.

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
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
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
