Error recovery controls.
Desktop drives are not traditionally designed for RAID environments and have controls that prevent the RAID controller from assisting in the event of an error which can cause the hard drive to drop off the RAID after a period of time. Rebuilding the system often requires several hours and can have a significant impact on downtime and productivity.
Noise and vibration.
Typically designed for single drive applications, average desktop drives are not optimized for multi-drive systems, which have higher noise and vibration levels. When these drives are added to a NAS, the additional vibration can reduce the reliability and life span of the drive. WD Red drives feature 3D Active Balance Plus which minimizes vibration and noise.
