WD Red Plus 12TB HDD Review: Seeing Red

WD Red Plus is a NAS hard drive designed to be a quieter and cheaper solution than WD Red Plus. red pro. This comes at the cost of performance and warranty, but it’s well placed for a budget on our list of the best hard drives. It’s not as cheap as entry-level hard drives, but it comes with an additional 1-year warranty and offers a wider capacity range as well. It’s also cheaper than his high-end NAS models, but faces competition on other fronts. However, it’s optimized for NAS and multi-drive environments, making it a better fit for his NAS than off-the-shelf offerings such as the Seagate BarraCuda Pro.

The 12TB Red Plus runs at 7200 RPM and uses CMR technology with 256MB DRAM cache, it’s a powerful combination. However, its performance seems to fall short of expectations, and it doesn’t come with Red Pro’s OptiNand technology. This puts the Red Plus in a special position, making it the perfect choice if you want a quieter, cooler multi-drive NAS solution.
