Designed For NAS
Desktop drives aren't purpose-built for NAS. But WD Red drives with NASware 3.0 are. Our exclusive technology takes the guesswork out of selecting a drive. We can help you find the perfect storage for your NAS system.
3D Active Balance Plus
Helps to ensure your data is protected from excessive vibration and noise in a NAS or RAID environment. This dual-plane balance control maintains your drive’s performance over time.
