[Review] HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red WD40EFRX 4TB 5400RPM 64M SATA3 NAS Desktop HDD

In this article I talk about a HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red, modelo WD40EFRX de 4TB, 5400 RPM, 64 MB cache, SATA3 interface, acquired on eBay, seller/store overbling7. The Red line from Western Digital is indicated for NAS devices.

Motivation

Four years ago (in 2014) I bought a NAS from Synology, the DS214play. It was a great purchase, I like him very much. This is where I do my backups, is it to synchronize my files (If subject to a limit of space of Dropbox and similar to that?), This is where I keep photos and videos to watch on my TV, among many other uses.

The DS214play still works perfectly, but every once in a while he takes a while to list files in a directory. Furthermore, He does not support some new interesting features, as the Btrfs file system, that makes versioning of files very efficiently, consuming minimal disk space. Por fim, the DS214play supports only two disks. I have two hard drives of 4 GB on it in RAID 1, so I have 4 TB available.

Therewith, the desire to upgrade the began to emerge. For over a year I've been planning to buy a new Synology NAS, with support for 4 HDs, with more processing power and more memory, with possibility to use the Btrfs file system. With more disks you can also take advantage of the system SHR (Synology Hybrid RAID), that allows you to combine different sized disks and get the highest amount of available space without giving up the redundancy.

At first the idea was to buy a DS916play, but it took me so much that he got out of line and has now been replaced by the DS918play. The idea was to purchase it without disks in Amazon, redirecting it to the Brazil, and buy the HDS of China, It's cheaper and usually comes without taxes. Furthermore, the HDs of China usually come sealed, What does not happen with HDs bought in Brazil.

I know that the packets from China are taking enough to get, Thanks to the foul play of the station you're trying to force the Chinese to use more expensive freight. Because of this, decided to buy the first HD for the NAS before you even buy their own in, and that's how I decided to purchase the HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red, modelo WD40EFRX de 4TB.

Choice of HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red

The choice of HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red It was quite natural. As I haven't been having a good experience with Seagate hard drives, I have preferred the Western Digital lately. I already have a WD Gold, at WD Blue and an WD Green. All already examined here in Skooter Blog, and all still working perfectly.

WD Red is the version optimized for NAS, so he ended up being my choice. The size of 4 TB has the lowest cost per terabyte. With the SHR nothing prevents me to opt for larger models for the next albums.

Purchase of HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red

The purchase of the HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red, modelo WD40EFRX de 4TB was made in the eBay, where I found the best price with the seller/store overbling7: US$ 160,00 including free shipping.

Na ocasião o frete estava listado comoEconomy Shipping from China/Hong Kong/Taiwan to worldwide”. Imaginei que viria um registrado comum, mas acabou vindo ePacket. Essa modalidade de frete é mais vantajosa pois o Correios não fica sentado nelas por 6 meses antes de entregar. Desse modo o pacote acabou chegando bem antes que eu esperava. Teve um “Object has not yet come to the unit.” on the way, after all, Correios é Correios e precisa dar uma atrasada. No final das contas o pacote chegou em 38 calendar days. Considerando que essa semana chegou um pacote que comprei em outubro (but 6 months to deliver), 38 dias ficou de bom tamanho. It was not taxed.

Unboxing of HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red

The HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red came well packed, com bastante plástico bolha e um pouco de isopor. Estava no pacote original lacrado, mas com um corte na parte traseira, feito para colar um selinho. 😡

I hate that mania baby kisses guarantee paste instead of simply write down the serial number. I've already told here that I once bought a PC that warmed a lot and I ended up finding a kiss on top of the processor, Sticky thermal paste, between the processor and heatsink. Ultimately, Bottlecap necklace is typical of Paraguay and reseller of product coming from Paraguay.

The last two HDs that I bought with the Chinese came 100% sealed. Now this last pasted the Bottlecap, but at least you didn't take the HD package. Check out the photos:

Test of HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red

Without the NAS to test the new HD, the way was put it on my desktop even, apenas para verificar os dados do S.M.A.R.T. e ver se ele está funcionando e se era realmente zerado.

The Crystaldiskinfo It showed that the HD was actually zero and had no problem. And CrystalDiskMark He showed the ability to read and write. With 163 MB / sec Sequential read- 152 MB / sec write Sequential, the HDD Western Digital 3.5″ 4TB Network has done even a little better than specification, showing an internal transfer rate 150 MB/s.

Final Considerations

It is too early to make an assessment of HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red, modelo WD40EFRX de 4TB, 5400 RPM, 64 MB cache, SATA3 interface, after all I still have the NAS and just did a quick test with him.

Anyway, I decided to take advantage of the good price and the seller's shipping ePacket (Now the ad list “Economy SpeedPAK from China/Hong Kong/Taiwan”), beyond “good mood” the Post Office and the IRS, to ask just one second HDD Western Digital 3.5″ Red, modelo WD40EFRX de 4TB. He is on the way. 🙂 Espero que chegue rapidamente e sem impostos também.
