Western Digital WD RED 4TB IntelliPower 64MB SATA 6Gb/s WD40EFRX Review
Western Digital WD Red 4TB Intellipower 64MB SATA 6Gb/s hard disk drive essentially builds on the company’s vision of offering greater raw storage capacity. This is more than what was available previously in the 3.5-inch same form factor with 6Gb/s SATA interface.
Small businesses and consumers are now able to upgrade to NAS units reaching full 4TB maximum, which is quite robust within the industry. Standard features of other form with Red 4TB include the Intellipower low power spindle from WD and 64MB cache. The technology is remarkable since drives of such capacity normally experience continuous operation, being required to consume small energy amounts with aim of cutting back on costs.
This RED 4TB storage facility from Western Digital boasts being highly reliable and carries a full three-year warranty by the manufacturer. Unfortunately, on the other hand, this model has RMA rates that could be considered high in its category. The hard disk features quoted transfer rate of approximately 150MB/s. WD Red ships exhibits great features for enhancing both performance and reliability of the drives, using NAS-ware firmware with version 2.0. Power and noise consumption are reduced, enabling users to monitor how the hard drive functions via SMART command set, providing tools for error recovery as well.
Western Digital Red 4TB has a design that is similar to that of Red 3TB version. The drive top features WD branding on product, information label and this 4TB model has six black stickers that cover the top screws. Black metal is used primarily to make the WD Red 4TB hard disk drive, with standard power as well as SATA connectors on its back. Four screws firmly attach the circuit board on the bottom, where thermal pads are used for cooling internal components. Western Digital Red 4TB Intellipower SATA 6Gb/s hard disk utilizes Marvell 88i9446-NDB2 controller and is fitted with 64MB DRAM cache from SKhynix H5PS5162GFA. You can use this hard drive for the NAS small office and home systems as well as on PCs with RAID.
