WD WD30EFRX overview

  • 1Description

Designed with home and small office/business customers in mind, the 3TB 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 3TB 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 147 MB/s. This drive also features high levels of reliability, with 600,000 load/unload cycles, <10 in 1014 non-recoverable read errors per bits read, error recovery controls, and 1,000,000 hours MTBF for 1-8 bay NAS systems. Also built into this drive are noise and vibration protection and WD's NASware 3.0 helps increase system compatibility, allowing WD Red drives to be more easily integrated with your existing network infrastructure.

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

    WD WD30EFRX reviews

    3TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 121.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great in its niche I own 7 of these. Two of them have been RMA'd. The other 5 are labeled NASware 2.0, so I assume they're a later run than the others. I was using the first two in a FreeNAS server along with a mix of other drives from Samsung, Seagate, and WD. I upgraded to a Synology DS1513+ and bought 5 new WD Reds, and they've all been working flawlessly for a few weeks now. WD's return process is pretty simple, if slow, and the replacements for the RMA'd drives are en route back to me. I'm going to keep them for cold spares. Bottom line, these are good for what they claim to be good for... small (5-bay or less) NAS systems. Anything more complex and you should take a look at WD's Raid Edition drives, or Seagate or Samsung's offerings in their respective enterprise lines. These, though, are cheap enough to have a couple extras and still pay less than the higher end drives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product and B&H services Works great, as intended. I was a little worried: in reviews from other retailers, this HDD had high failure rate from the first use (approx. 30%!). I also read that the poor packaging was maybe the origin. That is why I choose B&H - which was not the cheapest price - but had great packaging, which would reduce the risk of failure if the packaging was indeed to blame. I waited few weeks before writing this review, and I am still happy with the product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice upgrade Upgraded from a couple of Western 2TB Green drives. I was pleased with their performance over the last year in my ReadyNas 2 - quiet, dependable and fast. But file growth for photos/music required a little more space. Researched manufacturer and model options and reviews extensively and choose the Red 3TB versions which were recommended specifically for NAS use, where the Greens intended as internal pc/mac drives. Suppose it may be overkill, but for the small difference in price between Green and Red I have the comfort of knowing these were specially designed for my use and the professional reviewers seem to find the difference(s) noticeable. So far they meet my expectations - quiet and fast.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Happy with it Just got this, and am currently still transferring years of RAW photos to it. So I don't have as much experience behind this review as others, but I love it so far. Using with Voyager Q dock. Got the 3TB Capacity drive. Very fast with firewire connection to my Mac Pro. Runs quieter than my MacPro so I actually don't hear it at all. Will be used for my off-site backup and can see myself getting a few more very soon when I start to back up my footage next. Previously, have only used LaCie rugged USB hard drives for my data, but they don't make 2.5 and 3.5 HDD like this. So WD was a clear choice with lots of great reviews behind it. thanks BH. arrived very fast to Canada

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I read the reviews The WD reds are installed in a RAID 5 tower. I selected the WD red because of on line reviews concernig what drives perform best in this type of assembly. Two prime issues - 1) the drive must not get hung up in a error loop, if a bad sector response is not receied quickly enough a beeping error may occur causing the drive to be reported as failed when only a small bad sector may be at issue. The WD reds are reported to defend this error loop. 2) The WD red is designed for 24-7 operation. Of cours only time will tell if I am ultimately satisfied. The drives installed perfectly, configured perfectly and are running in the Raid 5 perfectly. I will let you know in three years if they perform as advertized.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drives, 90 days running strong I bought 4 of these badboys for my Synology 1812+. Uptime is 90 days and running smooth. I use these drives to stream media and I can tell you that I have not experienced lag time in audio nor when streaming 1080p HD Video from iMac(playlist/media on Synology) to Apple TV. Shipping was excellent as drives came in their own mini boxes and well packaged. I went with BH Photo since a lot of reviews on @ complained about DOA. I think @ may have a poor HDD shipping packing procedure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use these in Raid 0 and keep buying more I have had 4 of these drives in an external Raid running constantly since the first part of July 2012, they are setup as RAID 0 and output HD and 4k Movie film files with them. They are quiet and fast. If you need a drive to backup data these are great ones to use. They cost less than many of the so-called pro editing drives and I'm starting to use for other hardware & software applications as well. WD did a good job with these. Theee are reasonably quiet drives but with all things Raid you should have some experience to set Raids up properly. To add one of these as a second, backup data drive, to a PC or Mac, that installation is is much easier. Yes I recommended these drives to everyone, they are a good value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome NAS Drives Bought 5 of these 3TB drive for a Synology 1512+ NAS. Drives cove highly recomended and do not disappoint. Product was packaged well for delivery which is very important as many reviews cite poor packaging to DOA drives. Can't comment on durability but had these drives running constantly for 2 weeks and haven't missed a best. Ran Extended S.M.A.R.T test and came back all clear.
