The WD Red Plus WD30EFZX 3TB is optimized for NAS systems and is suitable for home users as well as small or medium-sized companies. Expand your NAS with this 3.5-inch hard drive and you can share your files with your devices at home or at the office in multiple RAID applications. You could use the Red Plus as a backup drive, something the base models aren't suitable for. With 3TB, you'll have enough storage capacity for 300 Full HD movies of 2 hours or 300,000 photos. Thanks to the built-in anti-vibration sensors, the drive will last longer than a regular hard drive. With a rotation speed of 5400RPM, this drive is energy-efficient, too. When you're not processing any files, the WD30EFZX lifts the read-write head from the disk. That way, it doesn't wear as fast, which makes the drive more durable.
- Available in capacities ranging from 1-14TB with support for up to 8 bays
- Supports up to 180 TB/yr workload rate
- NASware firmware for compatibility
- Small or medium business NAS systems in a 24x7 environment

Built for Optimum NAS Compatibility
Designed for personal and home office NAS systems, our unique algorithm balances performance and reliability in NAS and RAID environments. WD Red™ drives are optimized for environments where idle time is available to perform necessary background operations. To ensure optimal performance, always check compatibility with your system. WD Red™ drives may not be suitable for higher workload environments. For ZFS file systems and overall NAS system compatibility, we highly recommend WD Red™ Plus drives, which are optimized for higher workloads.1
Since your NAS system is always on, a reliable drive is essential. With an MTBF of up to 1 million hours, the WD Red™ drive is engineered to tackle 24x7 environments.
