How does WD Red benefit a network attached storage?
WD Red is perfect for your NAS solution as it has been designed and tested for 24/7 runtime, and is rated at one million hours MTBF (mean time before failure). It also has measures in place to enhance error checking, while preventing the chances of the hard drive being kicked off a RAID array. It has also been thoroughly checked and approved for maximum performance in NAS enclosures. The WD Red offers reduced noise and vibrations, which is largely beneficial if you have four more drives in close proximity all vibrating at once.

What can I store on this hard drive?
This hard drive has six terabytes (6,000 GB) of storage, so you have plenty of space to store your files. You can store up to 6,000 hours of digital video, 1,500 two-hour DVD films, over 1.9 million digital photos or over 99,000 hours of digital music.
