What do you think of Western Digital's new Red NAS drives?
I think they were launched a couple weeks ago and are made specifically for personal/home office NAS setups. They claim to run quieter and more efficient in a 24/7 running environment.
Features include 3 year warranty, 64 MB cache, variable RPM ("intellipower"), SATA 6 Gb/s, comes in 1, 2, & 3 TB.
My NAS enclosure has been sitting empty since I got it because hard drives went crazy expensive and it was more a toy then a necessity. Waiting for a sale could take forever since they are just launched. I want to know what you guys think before I decide to buy one or maybe just go with something else.
Is it all hype and any drive will do just as good?
