Locked WD Red, Seagate introduced a hard disk for NAS, and we recently returned from Japan to buy NAS HDD 4TB, to see how the performance bar.

In recent years, continued to decline in the computer components industry, perhaps the only one storage device shipments continue to get growth areas.

This, perhaps because one is called “Cloud” cloud drifting away, and bring some rain Fortress.

In fact, the mouth of said cloud is not what is new technology, in the past a lot of people are not used FTP is a cloud.

Perhaps, thanks to the cloud, thanks to enduring storage devices, and from time to time have a new release in the case, let a little thing you can do is good.

In July 2012, Western Digital’s WD NAS storage device for the first time introduced the Red series of hard, hit the NASware and 100 million hours MTBF, attracted the attention of many NAS users.

Caused a lot of media attention at the time, when they will be brought out what Seagate beef, and this side dish to May 2013 was finally brought out.

Serve the Seagate NAS HDD products, compared with just surprised people is that this hard drive on sale first in Japan, and the global at the time did not release any information, or even do not have any at Computex this series of hard drives messages and presence.

Until recently, Seagate has finally released the NAS HDD listed information, just as mentioned press release, the series includes three kinds of 2,3 and 4TB capacities, SATA 6.0Gb / s, the cache is 64MB, locked 1 – 5 Bays of NAS storage devices.

In the specification does not explicitly mention this series hard disk rotation speed exactly why, but through the measurement, we learned that it should be 5900 RPM.

While we want to be compared with the Red, providing data for our reference, but because of the series is currently no 4TB hard drive capacity, so the idea is temporarily unable to be executed.

Our hands to 4TB NAS HDD size, model ST4000VN000, in naming the ST4000DM000 with Seagate Barracuda 4TB quite similar. In a similar way than naming, two hard drives and PCB in appearance is almost identical, but in the +12 V current requirement, NAS HDD than the Barracuda 4TB of 0.37A higher, marking is 0.55A.




Origin section, Barracuda 4TB Thailand factory production, while NAS HDD series is manufactured by Chinese factories.

Corresponds to WD’s Nasware functions, Seagate provides the NAS HDD NASWorks, which includes the Dual-Plane Balance (double disc balance), Vibration Tolerance for Small NAS (seismic capacity) and NASWoks Error Recovery Control (error recovery control).

Next is the Seagate NAS HDD 4TB test data

Next, it provides single NAS HDD 4TB performance tests allow you to make a reference. Meanwhile, we also added more stars 4TB past to compare the data, so that we better understand the Fengyun designed for NAS hard disk performance.

Finally take a look at Seagate NAS HDD evaluation

NAS storage device manufacturers launch more and more, but in terms of hard disk factory, there is no pressure exists because hard disk production threshold is not low.

Fast shipping in WD Red Series Six months later, we saw the Seagate NAS HDD late, perhaps better late than not to, it’s just part of the performance test data as we have to offer the same performance under capacity, compared with Barracuda 4TB better.


However, NAS HDD stressed NASWorks, which contains a Dual-Plane Balance (double disc balance), Vibration Tolerance for Small NAS (seismic capacity) and, most importantly NASWoks Error Recovery Control (error recovery control) and other characteristics, in this performance Testing is no way out of being highlighted.

Currently, applications for NAS hard drive, in the largest capacity 4TB choice is not too much, Seagate probably spotted this market and launched 4TB of choice, so generally 1 – 5 Bays, NAS users can have a better choice.

Perhaps, the next will launch Red 4TB WD to the Seagate NAS HDD 4TB products.

We will put into the hands of the NAS HDD NAS conducted measurement, this product will come to understand how the actual performance in the end.
