Unlike desktop drives, these 3.5” HDDs are specifically tested for compatibility with NAS systems for optimum performance.  


The always-on environment of a NAS or RAID is a hot one, and desktop drives aren’t typically designed and tested under those conditions like WD Red Plus drives are. 

Error Recovery Controls: 

WD Red Plus NAS hard drives are specifically designed with RAID error recovery control to help reduce failures within the NAS system. 

Noise and Vibration Protection:

Designed to operate solo, desktop drives typically offer little or no protection from the noise and vibration present in a multi-drive system. WD Red™ Plus drives are designed to thrive in multi-bay NAS system environments.
