Default Western Digital Red Review: Are NAS-optimized HDDs Worth the Premium?

Western Digital (WD) introduced hard drives specifically targeted towards NAS systems under the Red branding last month. We had some initial coverage at launch time, where WD claimed a number of firmware features and some additional hardware aspects in the Red lineup that made it suitable for NAS usage.

We took out some Red drives for a spin, first in a standalone setting as a data drive inside a PC, and then, in a variety of SMB / SOHO NAS systems. Read on to find out about the special features in the WD Red disks and how it fares in a typical NAS environment.
