  • 1Description

Designed with home and small office/business customers in mind, the 3TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD Retail Kit 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
    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 WDBMMA0030HNC-NRSN reviews

    3TB Red 5400 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS HDD Retail Kit is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 64.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good price plenty fast in my 4 bay RAID Not as fast as the WD blacks but less than half the cost, use them in my OWC Thunderbay IV RAID cases 8 out of 8 of these arrived working perfectly, and have been running non stop for about a month (I will post again with an hour count at my first failure) For a single internal drive I would want something faster (I think these are energy savers) or even SSD but with 4 bay RAID cases they rip and are not even close to being the weakest speed link in my system also more than fast enough for back up as single drives.... the price is less than half the cost as the blacksso for backup I would much rather get 2 of these that one black (all drives will fail, 2 is always better than 1)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I Hope I Was Just Unlucky We ordered these to replace three 1TB drives in our Drobo 5D. The first one installed in Bay 0...no problem, though the capacity did not increase. Drobo says you have to replace two to see a difference. Put the second one in Bay 1...failed; tried the third one...failed!! The Drobo diagnostic report showed both drives have failed due to full timeouts, whatever that means. So they'll be on their way back to B&H tomorrow for an exchange. I hope we were just unlucky. The same model 1TB drives we've had in there for three years have worked flawlessly. One of the two stars is for 'benefit of the doubt.'

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Their warranty is non-existent I am sorry but WD's warranty is a joke. Bought two brand new HDDs, one failed a few months after being in my RAID 1 NAS. Returned under warranty (had to pay for shipping) - got back a RECERTIFIED HDD. Which, of course, failed after 1 month and lost ALL data. Returned it again (had to pay for shipping) - again got a RECERTIFIED HDD which was simply DOA and could not start at all. So their 5 year warranty is simply feeding you with faulty recertified HDDs until you run out of money for shipping them dead ones. Great idea, WD. Sorry, cannot trust you my data anymore. Going to your competitors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best drives for your NAS I bought a pair of these to put in my new Synology Diskstation (I reviewed it as well if you are in the market for one). THey are built for 24/7 use. They're a bit more $$ than standard drives but isn't your data worth it? mine sure is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works fine Installed in an external USB 3.0 adapter and initialized and formatted fine, 1 partition 2.7 TB as expected. Moved to internal SATA cable and Windows 8.1 disk manager showed as 1 partition and unallocated space and would not do anything to the drive. After much online reading, I had to use a DOS program to reset the drive (while on SATA cable) and then disk manager initialized and formatted it fine with1 partition 2.7 TB as expected. Who knew... I always prepped my drives using the external USB 3.0 device previously but it won't work with > 2 TB drives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great I use this in a self made server holding 6x 3TB WD red drives, and 6x 2TiB Samsung spinpoints. Runs 24x7 with a Areca 1882ix 24 raid controller with 4gb and BBU. even for low spindle rate, these hard drives are very fast. Throughput is phenomenal , I have yet to max out the bandwidth on my raid 6 even with a 6x 2TB raid5 samsungs and another 2 hard drives copying data to it at the same time. Raid expansion/migration took 7 hours each which is how long the RED takes to write 3TiB/2.8TB. or about an average 116MB/s from edge center.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent drive, but only 5400RPM This is a solid, stable, reliable performer in the NAS category. I have about 32 of these drives, and have had 0 actual failures. I did, however, have them report failure under high temperature (>100F degrees), and then perform fine after being moved into a new enclosure. The only downside, is sustained streaming reads from ZFS are lower than what I have come to expect from 7200 or 10k drives. All that being said, you get exactly what is advertised. A solid home NAS disk, that's great for backups, streaming video, and the like.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for NAS I have been using WD Reds for a while in my multi computer household. This time I decided to jump over the 2GB barrier. There is a learning curve if you are replacing a (bootable) RAID of MBR drives with the ones over 2GB ones (GPT). At some point I even regreted that I bought 3GB drives. Fortunately, I figured it all out. Now, it's just the drive quality. They are great - silent, cool, reliable. I was using WD Blacks before but their noise was too much to bare for a quiet office. The reds cost less too.
