[Review] 4x Western Digital Bare Drives WD Red 8TB NAS Hard Disk Drive – 5400 RPM Class SATA 6 GB/S 256 MB Cache 3.5″ (WD80EFAX) – Amazon

The four Western Digital 8 TB WD Drives Red Bare in the Hard Disk Drive – 5400 RPM Class SATA 6 GB/S 256 MB Cache 3.5″ (WD80EFAX) were purchased from US Amazon for use in the Synology 4 Bay on the DiskStation DS918 + (Diskless).

I've talked to other products of this same request here on Skooter Blog, check:

  1. 2º Synology 4 Bay on the DiskStation DS918 + (Diskless)
  2. Samsung 860 EVO 1 TB 2.5 Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-76E1T0B/AM)
  3. Samsung 860 EVO 1TB M.2 SATA Internal SSD (MZ-N6E1T0BW)
  4. 2x Crucial 8GB Single DDR3/DDR3L 1866 MT/s (PC3-14900) 204-Pin SODIMM unbuffered Memory-CT102464BF186D
  5. 4x Gold 8 TB WD Enterprise Class Hard Disk Drive – 7200 RPM Class SATA 6 Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5 Inch-WD8003FRYZ

These purchases involve a complicated accountability, so I couldn't use a redirection service like I usually do in my purchases to pay less. Instead, I made the purchase with shipping to Brazil directly by Amazon, paying all taxes in advance.

Amazon divided the 12 order items 5 packages, I don't know exactly why. The first came in the UPS Express Saver and the other by the I-parcel. I bought with cheap freight, that is AmazonGlobal Standard Shipping.

With 8 HDDs Red 8 TB WD, the Diskstation DS918 + got a total of 32 GB. Using Synology Hybrid RAID (SHR) are 24 GB usable with redundancy for minimizing the risk of data loss. If a single HDD dies, whatever it is, There is no loss of data, just replace it.

Already talked about WD HDDs Red here on Skooter Blog, When I bought them for my own in domestic. Be sure to check.
