Amazon is offering the Western Digital Red 3 TB NAS Hard Drive w/ IntelliPower for just $131 with free shipping, $69 below retail, $20 under the average selling price and the lowest price Amazon has ever offered this drive for.

IntelliPower is “a fine-tuned balance of spin speed, transfer rate and caching algorithms designed to deliver both significant power savings and solid performance.”  Other features include NASware for seamless integration and error recovery controls and 3D Active Balance Plus which minimizes vibration and noise.


The WD Red drives are prime to pop in a Synology NAS.  In fact, Synology just launched an 8-bay NAS with four GbE ports and speeds up to 350 MBps reads and 200 MBps writes.  Synology NAS offers iOS integration AirPlay support, VPN server, ERP software, mail server, web server, anti-virus, and network video surveillance built-in.  Certainly a step up from an Apple Time Capsule.
