Desktop Drives vs. WD Red?
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 tested for compatibility and optimum performance.
???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? is.
???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? drives are designed to thrive in multi-bay NAS system environments.
