WD Red 14TB

Post by holger_kuehn » Tue Jun 09, 2020 1:12 am

Hi,

just seen that WD had published 12 and 14 TB drives.
These are using the same specifics as the smaller ones, but get an EFFX instead EFAX (or EFRX for pro).

Any hint there why that changed?

NAS (backup): TS-1635AX FW: 4.5.1.1495 build 20201123
QTS (SSD): [RAID-1] 2 x 2TB Samsung Evo 860 M.2-Sata
Data (QTier): [RAID-6] 4 x 500GB Samsung Evo 860 Sata
Data (HDD): [RAID-6] 5 x 14TB WD Red
RAM: 8 GB (QNAP shipped)
UPS: CyberPower CP900EPFCLCD
BACKUP: 10x4TB WD Red using a USB 3.0 Dock

NAS: TS-873U-RP FW: 4.5.1.1480 build 20201108

According to the guide @Moogle linked-to, differences appear to be faster rotation speed (10,000RPM) with a smaller cache (16MB). :'

10k WD red ?

correct according to the linked guide but all resellers list them as:

WD Red 14TB NAS Internal Hard Drive - 5400 RPM Class, SATA 6Gb/s, CMR, 512MB Cache, 3.5" - WD140EFFX

:shock:

Hmm, maybe that guide is out-of-date? I can't see a publication date on it.

I wonder if there's a newer one?

Also just noticed the source reddit post is over 3 years old. :(
