Wait what…? How they’re supposed to know it’s RAID when you use multiple JBOD controllers and ZFS or btrfs software RAID… Hardware RAID is prone to silent corruption and doesn’t have any way to correct bit rot effectively and nobody in 2016 should recommend it… When using hardware RAID and reliable filesystem with native checksumming (ZFS/btrfs on lin, ReFS on win), then when it detects bitrot (checksum of sector doesn”t match) – filesystem will throw i/o error on file, won’t allow you to read it or back it up and you’re fucked. With direct access fs will search through available disks looking for uncorrupted sector and correct data on the fly. I’m using 12x Seagate NAS in RAID6 array in Linux storage server for few years already and it works. Didn’t explode. 5<12. And it was cheap comparing to "enerprise NAS drives". You can get just normal 10G SFP+ pci-e network card and 10G SFP+ switches or even some cheaper ISP grade 10G router like MikroTik CCR1009 and 4 gigabit network card for workstations and do rr-bonding on linux (samba can use bonding for "single connection" too even though windows technically doesn't support rr-bonding)... It easily scales above 600MB/s read. I don't know when drives would bottleneck because in my case deduplication bottlenecks on iops and drives encryption+compression bottlenecks on CPU.

FFS whole this naive leaflet bullshit made me cringe...

Robert D says:

Never seen a WD Red non-pro do 7200 rpm… because they don’t. Otherwise, accuracy of your video is on point. Spec sheet says something along the lines of “between 5400-7200rpm” and that’s just a gimmick. They run just over 5400rpm making their statement technically correct.

Unkyjoe's Playhouse says:

Not true on the error correction, that occurs with Windows OS only!!! Not Linux based nas. Just FYI you do not need NAS drives.

Tom's Tech says:

WD reds are not as good as the seagate NAS Drives. Reds have the tendency to fall out of raid.

Chad Bremer says:

This is a bit use specific. For example, if using FreeNAS or anything else using ZFS the firmware is meaningless. ZFS does not really work like a normal RAID controller. But, if using a box from Synology, drobo, and so on it’s not a bad idea to get NAS drives. Saying you NEED to use NAS drives in all NAS systems is not always true.

SjanST Official says:

If you really want the most relaible hdd’s you want HGST drives. Just make sure your raid controller supports it

Harryo says:

Too much WD!

Stormprobe says:

You are wrong about the RPM. The WD Red is a 5400 RPM drive. Period. IntelliPower is marketing BS. And the WD Red Pro is 7200 RPM.

Jakub Jaskółowski says:

total bull…. just got 3 TB WD RED – put it into Synology station and – BANG!! BOOM!! – 20 minutes and … It’s degraded hooney! Feel free to manage you problem by yourself cause WD ain’t gonna help since you cannot log into RMA (while registering it shows that “registration sompleted succesfuly” yet when you try to log in the system doesn’t recognize you . SO HOW ABOUT THAT??

C MJ says:

My WD hard drives have a 5 year warranty. They are Raptor 10K 1TB SATA 3 hard drives. I am surprised that the Blue drive doesn’t have a longer warranty. I believe that the Black drives have a 5 year warranty. Now the Raptor HDD’s are designed for servers, but became a drive that sold well to those that wanted a performance HDD.

Reflex Rages says:

I got this about a month ago and it has been clicking ever since it came out of the box. The thing is though it’s not your typical click of death, it’s more a loud slower ticking sound at startup and sometimes during operation.

I have run it through SeaTools and there are no issues with it. As well as contacting the people who sold it, who informed me that this is likely to be operation sounds, due to it being a mechanical hard drive.

So, I was wondering if you knew if this was true by any chance, or if the hard drive is failing like I suspect it is. Unfortunately I don’t have enough free time to take apart the computer and look at the system.

Hugo Mungus says:

You can buy regular Hard Drives, and they will actually last longer in your server.

Craig Lambert says:

Stupid question. Thinking about picking up a Synology 416Play. I’ve got drives now in an old Windows Home Server. I was going to buy one Red now and backfill over time as the drives fail or when I feel like replacing them. Any problem with doing it this way? Not sure I can get everything at once through the Finance Committee (wife) .

Photoshopped says:

I am not recommending WD hard drives. Had it several and some of them broke down. I recommend go with HGST Nas. For sure 100% more reliable. Second choice is Segate Nas drives. But for your own good dont go with WD.

Stefan Holmes says:

“A consumer hard drive has a 35% more chance to fail”.

That is not how percentages and MTBF works. At all.

dogdaymac says:

Hi Western Gents united you said a thousand hours between failure I thought it was a million or have I got it wrong cheers

Apoc414 says:

Dumb question, will this be good for regular desktop use?

Stefan Holmes says:

Haha “it has… INTELLIPOWER…”

Bangkokian1967 says:

I always use WD and have a few Black HDD in my desktop
Great review mate
I will definitely go for the Red series when I finally get my NAS
