Enhanced reliability
With a 35% MTBF improvement over standard desktop drives, the WD Red drive is designed and manufactured to be a more reliable and robust solution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does what it says on the tin I brought this to replace a WD black that suddenly failed just out of waranty. (I was not happy. One day it was working fine, then next it returned loads of read errors) I have fitted it to a linux desktop system and setup LVM volumes on it without difficulty So far it has 'just worked' but then I would be very supriesed and disapointed if it failed any time soon. 11 July 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by bought 2 , 1 failed in 2 hrs and the replacement failed DOA well I have one of the working drives in my Thecus out of 2, not sure for how long , total run time 192 hours so far, but to have 2 fail so quickly for the spare I am wary of buying any more of these. Think I'll try the seagate 3tb next. Scan have been good on support. 09 July 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bought 7 and had 3 fail within hours I initially bought 5 of these drives for a 4 bay external RAID box (one as a spare). On delivery I used SeaTools, as recommended by Scan tech support, to check the drives. Straight away 2 failed. I returned them, however as I needed to get the RAID box up and running a.s.a.p. I had to buy two replacement drives, costing me more postage. When the new drives arrived I was able to set-up and initialise a RAID 10 disk. After about 2 hours and having copied about 500GB of data I got a constant beep telling me that another hard drive had failed. Thankfully I'd bought a spare, which I put in and the box started to rebuild the RAID disk. So I bought 7 identical WD Red 3TB drives and 3 of them failed. I find that, unsurprisingly, my confidence in these drives has taken a real knock. Was I just really unlucky? 26 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So far, so good. I bought 4 of these to go into my Synology DS412+ NAS. I have only had them about three weeks but, as I say, so far, so good. 08 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect HDD! I'm absolutely satisfied. I got very good service from the SCAN computer. Thanks. 03 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great NAS drive I fitted a pair of these to a QNAP TS-219 network file store about 6 weeks ago to replace a pair of smaller drives configured as a RAID array. It took the best part of a day for the system to transfer first to one new drive, then the second and finally resize to the new 3TB capacity. Other than the time this takes, the whole process went without a hitch and the drives have performed faultlessly since. No reservations in endorsing these drives in a NAS setup. 28 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for Drobo's This drive has gone in the final slot on my Drobo 5N. The other four are the same drive & they've been going for a year now trouble free. So far ( after a few weeks ) no probs with this one. Only negative is price. Would have liked 4TB for this price to save getting another Drobo 5N when this one's full. 27 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good drive Have a DROBO 5N. Needed some drives. ordered these and they seem to be rock solid. The drives are a bit more expensive but the build of them is very good. Would recommend these drives for anyone having a NAS. 22 March 2014
