WD Red 8TB

WD Red hard drive is the world's first model to be was developed exclusively for NAS systems. The unit is tested for 24/7s operation at home or for small NAS businesses with one to five positions (for larger systems NAS is better to use enterprise drives). A foundation of WD hard drives is the 35% increase in the statistical indicators MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures), which indicates the median time in hours and allows for the equipment to work flawlessly as expected.

WD Red drives now have greater capacity

Our successful technology has enabled us to massively increase WD Red's storage caches to the highest capacity possible. Now there are models with a capacity of up to 8TB. WD now offers customers an even wider range and comprehensive portfolio of NAS solutions with 1-16 positions. The WD Red series is expanding above and beyond.

Based on reviews DS213j NAS purchased a 2pc WD 4000 megabytes WD40EFRX-68WT0N0, ie. i series that has passed compatibility test at DS213j. The first disk will not nenadetekoval and only "ticked" (headers searched but found nothing), so now you claim. The second drive lasted about one day and then retired to silicon heaven. The second complaint. Replaced drives still holds, but the question is how long it will last? Is it possible to rely on them ?? The worst part is that they leave very quickly, so SMART hardly enough to report problems, and disk and data are gone. Literally scared me the fact that the discs were gone shortly after another ...
very quiet low power consumption very high failure rate, which for the disks for data backup is not a good trait

I was looking for a replacement for the current WD AV GP 1TB, with whom I was most satisfied, but it was insufficient capacity. So that a larger capacity, while maintaining decent performance, low power and low noise, and especially high reliability, especially for HTPC use as a data disk. I finally decided to 2x WD Red 2 gigabytes However long I was deciding between GP WD, the WD AV-GP and WD Red. Presumably, they are completely identical discs which differ only in the firmware used for AV and Red extended warranty, and especially the cost. Differences in firmware are virtually zero (AV Edition allows you to enable AAM and reduce noise at the cost of reduced performance, but even so, all three drives are very quiet, and the Red version boasts NASware, who brings nothing major). However, probably the most fundamental difference is hidden in front of customers, manufacturers disks after production tests and selects the better bits (eg in terms of vibrations), especially for those who eventually sold as WD AV-GP and WD Red (this of course is not to say that conventional GP should be of good quality, so they are rather standard). I was knocked out by basic GP and I decided to AV-GP and Red. AV-GP is due AAM optimized for maximum quiet, does have a more stable but slightly lower performance and is also optimized for continuous non-stop operation. Red contrast, has a somewhat higher performance and is optimized for frequent switching on and off. From this perspective, I was more suited Red edition. With a disc, I will be satisfied, and definitely recommend it.
Relatively fast low power consumption Low noise Excellent Sufficient capacity Higher marketing costs little obfuscation regarding NASware (this is a common (but quality) disk into the PC and NAS).

Rate NASovy HDD after 14 days is really very objective. Disk ran, rebuilt RAID 1 - Synology 213+ seamlessly Experience with version 2T was positive, RED RED is just 36 degrees at full load during a raid rebuild is really nice value. HDD pack is factory rather symbolic - antistatic bag and desiccant (for HDD for about six tons, it is rather funny) A constantly increasing price.
