Western Digital launches new WD Red line of HDDs

Designed for NAS


Western Digital has announced a completely new WD Red line of hard disk drives designed specifically for home and small office network attached storage (NAS) devices.

Standing shoulder to shoulder with WD's Blue, Green, and Black series, the Red series offers 3.5-inch HDDs available in 1, 2 and 3TB capacities and are designed for NAS systems with one to five drive bays. As noted, all three models will be packed in a standard 3.5-inch form factor and feature SATA 6Gbps interface and 64MB of cache.

According to WD, these HDDs have been compatibility tested with top NAS box manufacturers and optimized for both power and performance, which is, at least according to WD, a much better way to go considering that consumers had to choose between desktop or high-end server drives for their NAS devices, with neither being cost effective or fully NAS compatible.

According to WD, the new Red line feature 3D Active Balance Plus enhanced balance control technology feature that should significantly improve overall drive performance and reliability.

The new Red line of WD's HDDs should already be available with MSRP set at US $109 for the 1TB, US $139 for 2TB and US $189 for the 3TB drive model. The entire line is backed by WD's free premium 24x7 dedicated support and three-year warranty.

You can check all models here where you can find WD's NAS compatibility list as well.
