With drives up to 10TB, the WD Red drive is built for single-bay to 8-bay NAS systems and packs the capacity to store your precious data in one powerhouse unit.

Cooler Temperatures
By reducing power consumption, the operating temperature of your NAS stays cool. With a lower temperature in your system, you can create a more reliable solution for your NAS.

Built for NAS Compatibility
WD Red drives with NASware technology are purpose-built to balance performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments.

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.

8TB WD Red WD80EFAX, 3.5" NAS HDD, SATA III 6Gb/s, 5400rpm, 256MB Cache, NCQ, OEM is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Appaling failure rate I bought 4 of these. One was DOA and another just died on me this week. It is getting to the point where it's almost impossible to find a manufacturer that makes good solid drives. I despair honestly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, great packaging. Hard drives slightly more expensive than other places. However, worth the extra for postage and secure packaging, unlike Amazon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best value per TB, and ideal for Synology NAS. One of the 4 drives purchased was very noisy, but was swiftly replaced by Scan without charge or even postal costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional service from Ordered 3 of these WD Red 8TB hard drives from a competitor (a large rain forest in South America) and all 3 came poorly packaged, hard drives loose, air bags not preventing any movement and with dents and scratches on all 3 hard drives. One hard drive span up so badly it sent vibrations that could be felt and heard throughout the flat. All 3 were sent back for a refund. I then ordered 3 WD Red 8TB from and all I can say is wow now this is a supplier that understands how to properly handle and ship hard drives. This is why you should always by this type of gear from a reputable PC specialist. They arrived in purpose hard drive packaging which they reused from their original manufacturer delivery as it can hold up to 25 hard drives which have foam slots for every hard drive. They also put plenty of air bags between all the drives even though they were not going anywhere. All 3 hard drives installed and running now for nearly 2 months no problem. Hard drive performance wise they function exactly as specified, fairly silent during spinning, can be heard a little during heavy read/writes similar noise to other WD hard drives when the head is making that mechanical sound. Which is not intrusive at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a hard drive This is the second 8TB red drive and I have 8 other WD 3TB red drives that have been running 24/7 for years. I have had zero problems unlike my experience with other brands so I just get WD red dives when I need to expand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good if they work Bought 4, 1 was dead on arrival. Once it was replaced, all installed and working, they seem great, but 25% failure isn't good.
