Desktop HDD vs WD RED HDD
NAS drives are designed to be on left on 24/7 i.e. a hot environment. Regular desktop drives aren’t typically designed and tested in those conditions. WD Red are!
Error recovery Controls
WD Red NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures within the NAS system. Desktop drives are typically not designed for RAID environments where this can be an issue.
Noise and Vibration Protection
Designed to operate solo, desktop drives offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration faced in a multi-drive system. WD Red drives are designed for multi-bay NAS systems.
