DESKTOP DRIVES VS. WD RED DRIVES

A desktop hard drive is not typically tested or designed for a Network Attached Storage device or RAID environment. Choose a drive that has been tested in NAS environments with an array of features to 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, optimum performance and reliability are not guaranteed.

Reliability: The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID can lead to increased tempratures, and desktop drives are not typically designed and tested in those conditions. WD Red drives are built for NAS.

Error recovery Controls: WD Red NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce fallouts with in the NAS system. Desktop drives are not typically designed for RAID environments where this can be an issue.

Noise and Vibration Protection: Desktop drives are not typically tested or designed to account for the noise and vibration faced in a multi-drive system. WD Red drives are designed for multi-bay NAS systems with NASware technology to help prevent this.
