    WD Red drives have proven reliable

    I purchased two of these 4TB Red drives on a daily deal to replace the remaining 2 2TB Seagates I had on my Synology NAS. 1 of those two Seagates had a SMART failure predicted error and some bad sectors after around 5 years (so not bad for a non-NAS specific drive). I have 3x 5TB WD Red drives also in the NAS, but WD stopped selling the 5TB units and the 6TBs are too expensive. I am happy with adding these 2x 4TB in the NAS and am using Synology Hybrid Raid (SHR) so can do mixed sizes. The 5TBs have been rock solid so far so I am expecting these to be good too. As you can see from the attached picture, the 4TB drives give you 3.6TB usable, and the 5TB ones are 4.5TB.

    The WD RED series NAS drives are close to bulletproof; though, that is not a literal statement; so, please don't test the validity. Run these drives in a 4bay Synology DT Server, and they are awesome. Not super fast, but not slow either. Use four others as safe-stored backups...just in case. Used them for years, gazillions of read/writes over a dozen users...never had one fail. I don't have anything to compare them to because I haven't had a reason to try anything else. These do the job well.

    I never have enough space. I backup like crazy, sometimes I have so many duplicates I get confused as to what is master and what is a backup. I hope this helps. I chose the 4TB WD Red (NAS) for reliability. 5400 RPM almost stopped me from the purchase but all is PLENTY fast. I think this would be a SUPER 2nd drive for those of you going the SSD route. I'm waiting on a sale to pick up another. Remember, I backup everything.

    Needed more room on my main computer. Excellent price for 4Tb of storage. Wont' need the fast gaming speed as this drive is mainly for photos. Just plugged into the Sata and power, found the drive on systems manager and one click it was up and running. I do have an SSD drive for the OS, so this NAS drive is just for storage. I'm hoping that it should be plenty reliable.

    My Synology DS1511+ now has 2 of these and 3 5TB drives (could not get the 5TB any more). They have performed well so far, reliable and fast enough for the 5 bay NAS for my uses. These are WD40EFRX drives in the box.

    I built my Hackintosh and needed something to hold all my Windows side of it (dual boot) and this came in handy! I'll never run out of space. Although it's not the fastest write speed, it gets the job done!

    I've been using Western Digital, forever now. Their products are great. I'm glad they bought out Hitachi and their drives got much more better in quality. This drive........Yes buy it, use it internally or get a shell and make an external.

    Good for storage and frees up space

    Installation was a breeze. Large enough to free up space so C drive had only OS and room to run much faster. Also large enough to remove 2 other storage drives for less drain on power supply. Worth the money.
