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.

Is there a 2.5" laptop size version of this or any WD HDD? Want to add a couple 4TB to my raspberry pi with SATA USB3 cables.

You can build a Nas using an old pc as a base. Just attach drives to internal ports and set them up as a raid. The Nas portion is just the software controlling access to the disks.

Download a copy of xigmanas/nas4free or freenas. Can run on a Bootable usb stick or even a CD.
I have TrueNAS on a HP Micro server and son has OMV on Raspberry Pi, both running hot on a UPS since last 8 months....both are rock solid platforms for NAS, however ZFS on TrueNAS (previously FreeNAS) cannot be beaten Peace

Quote from b.arms :
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.
The graphic you included definitely helps this conversation. To anyone examining the four graphs it's worth pointing out that the user-experience with the small differences between 5400 and 7200 rpm drives are going to be much harder to distinguish than the order of magnitude differences between traditional hard disk drives and SSDs. In a similar vein, the differences between SATA SSD and NVME drives can be hard to distinguish because the tests which highlight their differences (the sequential tests) are also the least reflective of real-world performance.

Good luck!
Jon

Quote from Cracktower :
I know this is expired but what are these geared towards? Games? Movies? Pictures? All these colors get confusing after a while. TIA!
The colors can help, but not always in the way WD intended. The biggest one to watch out for is Purple surveillance drives as those are optimized for multiple, continuous write streams and as such are less useful for general purpose PC or NAS usage (they're not broken, just not optimal).

The Red series provides some reassurances regarding 24/7 operation, but otherwise could be used as general purpose PC drives with no issue. WD Red Pro is all the benefits of drives designed with 24/7 operation in mind with none of the disadvantages for massive writes associated with SMR (so use 'em anywhere, but rest assured that they're designed for 24/7 NAS operation). WD Red (non-Pro) tends to include SMR variants (which can be a negative impact to performance during sustained writing).

WD Blue is their mainstream hard drive branding (which includes a verying mix of every technology at different sizes, including models at 5400 rpm, 7200 rpm, CMR models, and SMR models). This is the color category that likely best defines your confusion. Who is the category for? Perhaps only someone very carefully able to evaluate the features of a specific model!

And with the earlier point about SSD performance, WD Black hard disk drives can realistically be ignored in all but very specific cases (specifically, WD Black offers CMR 3.5" drives in high capacities).

Good luck!
Jon​
