If you’ve just bought yourself a NAS and need some drives to fill it with, there’s a sale on right now that covers Western Digital’s Red Plus range of NAS hard drives. The 10TB model, which opens up doors of possibilities on a server, is currently the cheapest I’ve seen yet.
Western Digital makes a family of network-attached storage (NAS) drives that can be used in enclosures with up to 24 bays. They are separated into three ranges: WD Red, WD Red Plus, and WD Red Pro. Depending on how much you’re willing to spend and what features you need, I’m going to run you through all the differences.
There’s a sale currently going on for Western Digital 4TB Red NAS hard drives. These are solid units that strike a good balance between value and capacity. While the Red series of Western Digital drives aren’t as flashy as Red Plus or Red Pro, they’re certainly worth considering for enclosures where loads of data will be saved.
