With drives up to 10TB, the WD Red drive is built for single-bay to 8-bay NAS systems and packs the capacity to store your precious data in one powerhouse unit.

Cooler Temperatures

By reducing power consumption, the operating temperature of your NAS stays cool. With a lower temperature in your system, you can create a more reliable solution for your NAS.

Built for NAS Compatibility

WD Red drives with NASware technology are purpose-built to balance performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments.

Desktop Drive vs. WD Red Drive

A desktop hard drive is not typically tested and designed for NAS environments. WD Red has features such as NAS compatibility, increased reliability and more.


Stream, backup, organize and effortlessly share your digital content to your TV, PC and more. NASware technology increases your drives' compatibility with your NAS system, for better playback with your devices.


Businesses thrive on productivity and efficiency, two guiding principles built into the design of the WD Red drive. Share and backup files at the speed of your business with a WD Red drive in your NAS.


Looking for maximum performance in a heavy use NAS? The WD Red Pro drive is designed to handle an increase in workload and system demand and features a 5-year limited warranty.


Desktop drives aren't purpose-built for NAS. But WD Red drives with NASware 3.0 are. Our exclusive technology takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. We can help you find the perfect storage for your NAS system.

3D Active Balance Plus

Helps to ensure your data is protected from excessive vibration and noise in a NAS or RAID environment. This dual-plane balance control maintains your drive’s performance over time.

I now have two of these, having bought the first one about 10 months before this second one. I think this is a lovely drive for an external enclosure. I am sure it would be great in a NAS too. Mine are in StarTech SATA III external enclosures and I use them for media streaming over WiFi via a PC as well as for storage. The drive is super quiet - pretty well completely inaudible, no doubt due to the 5400 RPM spin speed. That is a huge benefit as 7200 RPM holds no advantages for media streaming and just makes more noise. 5400 RPM also helps to keep the drive cool. I cannot assess reliability and I do not believe anyone can unless they use 100s of the things. Mine work fine. The 10TB drive represents good value for money per TB. I can recommend this drive and would be happy to buy again.
