Tackle Intensity with WD Red Plus

Packed with power to handle the small- to medium-sized business NAS environments and increased workloads for SOHO customers, WD Red Plus is ideal for archiving and sharing, as well as RAID array rebuilding

on systems using ZFS and other file systems. Built and tested for up to 8-bay NAS systems, these drives give you the flexibility, versatility, and confidence in storing and sharing your precious home and work files.

For Small or Medium Businesses

Stream, backup, share, and organize your digital content with a NAS and WD Red Plus drives designed to effortlessly share content with the devices at your home or business. NASware 3.0 technology increases your drives'

compatibility with your existing network and devices. For larger businesses with up to 24 bays, count on WD Red Pro drives to deliver exceptional performance.

Exclusive NASware 3.0

Not just any drive will do. Get up to 112TB of capacity in your 8-bay NAS system and with Western Digital's exclusive NASware 3.0 technology, you can optimize each and every drive. Built into every WD Red Plus hard drive,

NASware 3.0's advanced technology improves storage performance by increasing compatibility, integration, upgradeability, and reliability.

Built for Optimum NAS Compatibility

WD Red Plus drives with NASware technology takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. Optimized for NAS systems, our unique algorithm balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments. Simply put,

a WD Red Plus drive is one of the most compatible drives available for NAS enclosures. But don't take our word for it. WD Red Plus drives are a reflection of extensive NAS partner technology engagement and compatibility-testing.

WD Red Pro for Big Business

If you're looking for heavy duty performance for NAS, WD Red Pro drives deliver exceptional performance for the medium to large business customer with extreme demands. For NAS environments with 9 to 24 bays,

WD Red Pro drives deliver uncompromising performance and unwavering assurance backed by a 5-year limited warranty.

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.

24/7 Environment

Since your NAS system is always on, a reliable drive is essential. With an MTBF of up to 1 million hours, the WD Red Plus drive is engineered to tackle 24x7 environments.

Premium Support and a 3-year Limited Warranty

Confidently upgrade your NAS performance with the assurance of a 3-year limited warranty, coupled with world-class support services included with every WD Red Plus drive.

Desktop Drives vs. WD Red Plus

Do right by your NAS and choose the drive purpose-built for NAS 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: Unlike desktop drives, these drives are specifically tested for compatibility with NAS systems for optimum performance.

Reliability: The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a hot one, and desktop drives aren't typically designed and tested under those conditions like WD Red Plus drives are.

Error Recovery Controls: WD Red Plus NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures within the NAS system.

Noise and Vibration Protection: Designed to operate solo, desktop drives typically offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration present in a multi-drive system. WD Red Plus drives are designed to thrive in multi-bay NAS system environments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FailedThis drive failed within 1 week of use. I was very disappointed as this was the 3rd one to fail in less than 3 months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This wasn't a good fit for what I needThis wasn't the best decision to get the WD Red HDs. Had all kind of problems getting these to be a bootable. I got these since we plan on getting a NAS system and I thought of getting HDs suited for them but it wasn't a good fit for an older Mac and older version of server, Tried creating a RAID and it would not install OS, tried no RAID and it would not boot. Finally use it as a data HD and had another older HD as a boot drive. The WD Red are a lot slower. I wished I bought a WD Black but I have to deal with it. My advice to anyone who wants to put the WD Red into an older Mac, to consider NOT using them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It spins it stores dataBased on Backblases stats this is one of the more reliable 3Tb drives out there. Not the fastest but the more reliable. For a home or SMB NAS array this is perfect.

Product arrive at CDW ... Billing issue ... without time to resolve issue, my order was shipped to next person on list ... then they were out again and I had to wait 2+ months for next back-order to clear and ship!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent valueI had a drive failure in a Netgear ReadyNAS unit that had 4 2-GB drives. For the price, I decided to replace all 4 drives with these 3-GB units and keep the good 2-GB drives as backups for the two other ReadyNAS units I have. Obviously I had to copy all the data off the old drives and copy back onto the new ones after initialization but it was well worth the effort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great hard drive for NASI've been using the drives exclusively for all my NAS applications over the last couple of years and have yet to have any problems at all. Of course, they are just hard drives and some will no doubt fail eventually, but so far I haven't had a spot of trouble with them.This is FAR more than I could say about the Seagate HD's that came with Iomega NAS units, but that's another story for another product.
