WD Red vs Pro vs Seagate Ironwolf vs EXOS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Basically what the title says. I am building a NAS for personal use, 1 computer backup, at least for now. I am planning 4x4TB drives in Raid 10, and I am not sure which one I should get. Budget is not a super big issue, but I would prefer if each drive was below $200 USD. Other than that, is one better than the other? I have no experience with these drives, so any insight would be appreciated.


EDIT: My current plans for build at the moment minus the drives: 


Gaming PC


CPU: Ryzen 3700X GPU: EVGA 2060 Super XC Ultra Gaming MB: MSI X470 Gaming Plus

RAM: 32GB (4x 8GB) Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4-3200 NVME: Samsung 970 Evo 250GB M.2-2280

PSU: Corsair RM550x Case: Corsair 680X RGB Black


NAS/Media Box

CPU: Ryzen 3200G  MB: Gigabyte Aorus B450 Elite

RAM: 16GB (2x 8GB) Corsair LPX DDR4-3000 M.2: WD Blue 500 GB

PSU: Rosewill Photon 850W 80+ Gold Case: Cooler Master HAF XB Evo
