I don't understand how an SSD can be optimized for use in NAS? Maybe they are tolerant of higher heat for systems without good airflow?

Unlike standard SSDs, WD Red NAS SATA SSDs are specifically designed and tested for 24/7 usage.

So we use this as a cache drive in a NAS system?

I have a QNAP TS-453Be NAS that has 2280 slots. I have these drives but in 1TB capacity.

Does your NAS take full advantage of the advertised speeds on these? Genuinely curious, thanks!

The only thing I found is this supports HZAT and DRAT which some SSDs do not (who knows which ones). For NAS you would want that though.

SSD designed for 24hrs ops as opposed to SSDs that are not?

I think this purely aimed at exploiting the WD cultists who won't raise an eyebrow at anything their beloved says. If they do, all WD has to say is... but Seagate... and the flock just nod and buy. Smilie
Yes, exactly. Consumer drives aren't meant to be on 24/7. Generally a home users PC will theoretically only be on when they are using it.

FYI these aren't fast M.2 NVME SSDs. just a regular sata ssd in a stick form basically.

NAS cannot really take advantage of NVMe drives. Most people are connecting to their NAS over a gigabit connection. This limits the max speed to 125 MBps. A 7200 RPM HDD is already around 120 MBps so it pretty much saturates the link. Adding a SSD will not increase read speeds from the NAS. It will only help with internal caching.

Really to see an advantage with NVMe you would need a 10G network. At 2.5G or 5G these SATA SSDs would be enough.

Do you see any performance difference?
