Top of the range in the WD options as far as I'm concerned!
04/02/2018 | Guest | EU Flag |
Not enough noise is made about Red Pro when it comes to business needs. We have been running c. 40 of these across a QNAP rack system with each NAS On a 6 RAID and mirrored against each other. We have had 1 drive issue over 3 years and considering our use and intensity (and batch issues that can arise) we were braced for more (hence our RAID and back up choices!) Nice one WD and nice one Worldspan Communications for sorting out our needs.

I have 4 of these in my DS918 and am currently feeling a little overloaded with unused data capacity!! Give it time give it time. The amount of data I manage to collect and never get round to clearing these will be filled soon enough.

WD Red Pro 8TB is probably the best drives regards to speed!
15/06/2016 | | AU Flag |
Is this wd 8tb pro drive will be quieter than 6tb red pro?


Thank you for your question The WD Pro series drives are noticeably improved in most respects and this includes noise, temperature and shock absorption. If you are looking to purchase a large scale NAS solution, then I would recommend the WD Red Pro series of NAS Hard Drives. 

Thank you for your enquiry.

Kind regards,
