The WD Red Pro 8TB hard disk ranks among the high load internal HDDs compatible with NAS data storage solutions. 3.5" HDDs are made chiefly for data centres and desktop PCs. One of the main characteristics is undoubtedly the rotational speed. 7200 RPM provides better system response across the board. You can look forward to a total data capacity of 8000 GB. The storage features a 256 MB memory cache. It communicates with a PC or other devices using the SATA III interface.
Standard HDDs are notable for their construction. Inside the hard drive there is a mechanism that utilises moving platters accompanied by disk read/write heads. These mechanical parts are admittedly more sensitive to shocks, but this design delivers an affordable price tag and high storage capacity. The crucial criterion that determines the speed of a HDD is RPM - the number of revolutions per minute. In case of the WD Red Pro 8TB, you get 7200 RPM RPM. This should delight the more demanding users, such as graphic designers, gamers, video editors, and people who tend to use large amounts of data. File access speed and overall stability is also significantly affected by the disk buffer - the so-called cache. The Western Digital platter drive features a 256 MB cache that stores the last data inputs for their prompt retrieval and reading.
In order to mount the WD Red Pro 8TB in your PC or other device, you need a 3,5" slot. Data sharing happens using the SATA III interface, boasting a standard speed of 6 Gbit/s. The technology ranks among the best HDD data transfer options available and delivers a speed of 600 MB/s. The dimensions of the HDD are 101,6 × 147 × 26,1 mm.
