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

Tackle Intensity with WD Red Plus

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 busi- ness. NASware? 3.0 technology increases your drives? compatibility with your existing network and devices.
