My System Specs

Default

They are designed more so for file storage inside a NAS unit, thus always-on 24x7 operation. It's kind of like the RE3 drives, only cheaper and slower RPM (nobody really knows what Intellipower runs at, but I'd guess somewhere around 5k RPM). As such, this means it also works well in RAID configurations.

If you just want a high-performance desktop drive, stick to the Black series IMO.

I have 4x 3TB WD Red's in my QNAP TS-469L NAS and they've been working beautifully thus far. Only have had it for about 3 weeks now though.
