NAS Disk Drive Group Review

Storagetimes have done a review on thre epopular NAS drives from HGST (formerly Hitachi), Western Digital (RED Drives) and Seagate


Verdict IMG_1431_21

Its early days for HGST Deskstar NAS drives, WD RED Drives has historically shown tremendous reliability and Seagate are still in the proving mode. We have no doubt HGST NAS drives will come through the reliability tests in time as it’s shown historically with its desktop and enterprise model drives, to become one the NAS drive of choice for NAS servers in any class. Performance for the HGST 4TB NAS was stellar and coupled with an impressive list of features and specification we have little or no hesitation in awarding our 2014 editors choice to the HGST Deskstar NAS drives. Well Done Team HGST!
