BH Photo Video [bhphotovideo.com] has 4TB WD Red SATA III 3.5" Internal NAS Hard Drive (WDBAVV0040HNC-WRSN) on sale for $89.99. Shipping is free.

Good for those who do not want to spend $150+ on 6TB or larger size NAS drives. CMR technology and is being renamed "WD Red Plus" to distinguish it from the current "WD Red" product, which uses SMR technology.

Similar price at Newegg [newegg.com].

This is also $5 cheaper than the previous FP deal of $94.99.

That's not the same drive. Generally SMR < CMR for the purpose you're buying this drive.

Quote from BraveHeart4556 :
Knowing the Plus vs. Pro mainly deals with 5400 RPM vs 7200 RPM, is there that much of a difference between the two if I am mainly going to be using for PLEX?
Zero difference for basic purposes

If you want 10 degree higher temperature, then sure.

I meant from a speed perspective. Is this a major step down? I appreciate the assistance.

These are mostly meant for NAS situations which are usually bottlenecked by the network speed.

Are they slower than 7200rpm? Yeah for sure. I wouldn't recommend it as a regular use drive.

Thank you. It would seem then that there's really no good hard drive deals for 4 TB and 7200 RPM.

Probably because most people concerned about I/O speed these days are going for an SSD. There's just a tiny read/write difference between your average 5.4k and 7.2k RPM platter drives when comparing both to even a SATA SSD.

I wouldn't pay any significant price difference for a 7200RPM drive. Where it used to make sense, it just doesn't any more.

Thanks for the detailed response. It's very helpful. I use a 256 GB SSD for Windows and a few applications, and I have a 1 TB HDD that I save games on.

I want more space to save more games and also some gameplay that I want to record to use as video, so I wanted to get another HDD for that.

Would this [newegg.com]be a good choice in your opinion give what you've said about speeds? It's 5900 RPM.

This [amazon.com] page shows the full specs.

I used to be a WD fanboy but lately I switched to the Ironwolf Series. Not a complicated with their models, same warranty, excellent support.

Sorry WD. Go cheap, lose your customers.

The old reds were CMR, the new reds are smr. EFRX are CMR, EFAX are SMR. The new Red Plus are CMR.
