      Needed this to replace a dead WD green that was in one of the external "book" cases. Case board died, drive died and i had to send it out to a recovery service (a really cheap and good one that starts at $300 for anyone that's interested, just search $300 Recovery as part of the name, they are in CA) and needed this new Red one as a replacement. So far so good and now running a continuous backup service online. No more losing data for me.

      I recently purchased a NAS by Synology, the DS415+. I researched HDD drives and found the Red series by Western Digital to be exactly what I needed: fast read/write speeds, reliable, and good value. I saw the same drives on another website at a lower cost. However, BestBuy offered me a price match, and I also opted to have them ship my drives to the local store so I wouldn't have to wait for shipping. Quick and painless; good deal!

      I was skeptical of paying so much for such little storage because I always hate when a typically reasonably priced item is branded "x". As such all the reviews I have read said that you should buy NAS branded drives for their speed, efficiency, and reliability. So I did, and so far I am not disappointed. My initial setup is not in a RAID configuration because right now I just need the space, however I plan to add an additional 16GB and place that in a RAID 5 configuration.

      Let me start by saying that this drive is a great value when considering the capacity for the price per Gigabyte. If my math is correct it is about $0.03 per GB of storage. The WD Red series have great capacity for the Network storage niche. I have been using Western Digital drives to store my important files and information for over 10 years now. I have yet to have a drive fail on me from WD. I still have all my older drives. The only thing that changes is capacity. Western Digital's warranty is great too!

      Purchased 4 of these red 4tb drives for my Qnap NAS back in in April 2015. I set them up on a Raid 5 configuration and so far no problems at all. They run smooth and quietly. Little to no noise and they get plenty of use on a daily basis with constant camera video being stored in them and plenty of streaming audio and video to multiple devices simultaneously. Extremely reliable. Best hard drives I have owned.

      Purchased this drive for my Netgear NAS server and it works quite well. I did prelimenary tests on the drive to check it for defects and it was all good. Placed the drive into the NAS server and it was recognized right away and was able to fill it up with lots of data. Drive runs cool since it only runs at 5400 rpm, which is more than enough for a NAS. It's been a couple months since I installed the drive and so far everything looks great.

      Purchased a couple of these drives to use in my NAS and they have been working perfectly. Read/write speed is faster than most people need but for NAS use, lower power consumption and reliability are priority. These drives are designed exactly for that and definitely deliver. I compared to other NAS drives and decided on the WD Red line because of lots of positive reviews and long-term usage.

      BestBuy's offer for a pair of these drives, just too good to ignore. The whole transaction was great and my QNAP NAS is very happy with the shiny new upgrade. WD RED is pretty much the Gold Standard for NAS drives. I was using 3TB Reds, but outgrew them. I've had 4 years of perfect performance from them, so it is very logical that they will get re-purposed very soon.
