WD Red Pro NAS Hard Drive (Western Digital)

  • Unlike desktop drives, these drives are specifically tested for compatibility with NAS systems for optimum performance.
  • 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 Pro drives are designed to thrive in multi-bay NAS system environments.
