expiredWestern Digital Red 5TB 3.5-inch NAS Hard Drive $190 shipped (Orig. $250), more

Today only, Newegg has the WD Red 5TB NAS 3.5-inch Hard Drive (WD50EFRX) for $189.99 shipped. That’s $60 under the original $250 price tag, $30+ below Amazon, the best price we can find and the lowest price we have seen on a single 5TB Red drive.

WD’s Red drives feature IntelliPower and are widely considered to be among one of the best choices for NAS use. They are also quite popular among Amazon users with a 4.5/5 star rating from over 2,200 customers.

Features:

  • WD Red is the only drive specifically designed for NAS systems with 1 to 8 bays.
  • Extensively tested for compatibility with top NAS manufacturers.
  • Engineered for 24/7 operation and reliability.
  • WD NASWare technology enables seamless integration with balanced performance.
  • 3 year limited warranty.

Synology makes some of our favorite NAS solutions, and today we spotted the DiskStation 1-Bay Network Attached Storage Drive (DS115J) for $99 shipped on both Amazon and B&H. That’s anywhere from $9 to $50 under the next best listings. The DS115J can be a great starter drive or a spare NAS option for the office. Rated 4.4/5 stars.

More on the WD Red 5TB:

WD Red just got bigger Our formula of success has led to the growth of WD Red into the highest capacities possible. Available up to 6 TB, WD offers an even broader, more comprehensive portfolio of NAS solutions for our customers spanning from a total of 1 to 16 bays. The WD Red family just got bigger.

NASware grows to 3.0 Built off of our determination to deliver the best NAS experience, NASware 3.0 extends our promise by further optimizing WD Red for the NAS environment with added support for 6 to 8 NAS bays. WD Red now supports small NAS systems from 1 to 8 bays thanks to NASware 3.0, which further improves drive compatibility and reliability. At 48 TB of total capacity in an 8 bay system, WD Red really is a newer generation NAS experience.

Professional solutions Designed specifically with SMB customers in mind, the WD Red family has expanded with the addition of WD Red Pro, which is available for the 8 to 16 bay medium to large-scale NAS environments. With capacities up to 4 TB, WD Red Pro carries a 5-year limited warranty and was engineered to handle the increased workloads from your business.

Synology has expanded our favorite network-attached-storage (NAS) lineup with its new DS115j DiskStation.

It may be geared towards small office and home users, but this single-bay NAS is still full-featured and runs the same version of DiskStation Manager (DSM) as the rest of the DiskStation boxes. And this is key because DSM is what truly sets Synology apart from its competition.

Use the DS115j to backup backup all of your devices, stream media, sync data across devices, backup data from your public cloud accounts (DropBox, Google Drive), and so much more. It supports drives up to 5TB from any manufacturer and up to 6TB from the Western Digital NAS-optimized Red lineup.

The DS115j is currently available from Synology and should hit Amazon shortly at the MSRP of $129.99.
