The WD Red 6TB hard drive belongs among the high load internal HDDs for NAS storage solutions. 3.5" HDDs are made chiefly for data centres and desktop PCs. One of the key parameters is clearly the rotational speed. 5400 RPM meets the needs of any casual user. The hard disk provides a storage capacity of 6000 GB. The drive has a 256 MB memory cache. The data transfer is facilitated using the SATA III interface.
Platter hard disks have a notably special construction. Inside the enclosure there is a mechanism that uses moving platters, complete with disk read and write heads. These mechanical parts are admittedly more sensitive to shocks, but at the same time you get a great combo of a low price and great storage capacity. The important parameter that determines the speed of a hard disk is the number of rotations per minute (RPM). In case of the WD Red 6TB, you get 5400 RPM RPM. You can find these drives mainly in laptops and other home devices that aren't built for high performance. System responsivity and stability is also impacted the embedded buffer memory known as cache. The Western Digital hard drive features a 256 MB cache that keeps the last written data for their speedy reading.
If you want to install the WD Red 6TB in your PC or other device, it requires a 3,5" slot. All data transfer is done using the SATA III interface with a speed of 3 Gbit/s. This technology is one of the best HDD data transfer solutions available and delivers a throughput of 600 MB/s. The dimensions of the hard drive are 101,6 × 147 × 26,1 mm.
