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.

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.

  • Extensively tested for compatibility with top NAS manufacturers.
  • Engineered for 24/7 operation and reliability.
  • WD NASWare technology enables seamless integration with balanced performance.

Not only are the WD Reds one of our favorite NAS drives, but they have also been reviewed quite favorably on Amazon with a 4.5/5 star rating from over 2,000 Amazon customers. While the $600 price tag can seem steep, anyone who plans on putting storage inside of a NAS product from Synology or QNAP will likely end up spending more than this to fill it with drives in the end anyway.
