Hmmm...

1. Locate model numbers for both drives
2. Locate and download PDF spec sheet for both drive
3. Compare
4. PROFIT?!?!?!?

I'm not saying this to be an *sshole, I'm saying it because it's something I would do. After having done that, I might ask for advice. For people's personal experiences which don't show up in spec sheets.

Also keep in mind when you say "WD Reds" there are now WD Red, Red Plus, and Red Pro drives I think. Which makes it a bit of a pain in the ass to compare.

Toshiba drive: HDWG480XZSTA Datasheet link [toshiba-storage.com]

WD Red data sheet: Link
[westerndigital.com]WD Red Plus data sheet: Link [westerndigital.com]


I didn't share the WD Red Pro PDF link because I'm pretty sure they're in another league in terms of warranty (5 years versus 3), performance, etc.

You might consider "shucking" WD EasyStore drives from Best Buy. I currently have 2x8TB WD EasyStore drives, shucked from their enclosures, in a basic Synology DS220j.

I also have 3x8TB WD Gold and one more 10TB WD EasyStore shucked also. EasyStores were purchased at Best Buy ("EasyStore" is exclusive to Best Buy, I believe). The 8TB and 10TB EasyStores which I shucked are Helium filled drives. Not all drives will be Helium filled. With part numbers that match FCC or other filings for DeskStar Enterprise grade drives. Plenty to read on Reddit and other sites about drive shucking. Interesting stuff. Also, warranty is not voided by shucking. Hope you find this helpful.
So, in your opinion (since you've read and researched) are they better than the WD Red Plus?
Here's one resource for trying to gauge real world reliability between drives. Backblaze keeps statistics for all of the drives they use in their data centers. You will have to look through multiple sheets/ years and also do some research to see if the drives you are considering are in the same families as the drives they use, but still a pretty cool non-biased resource:

7200RPM drives are very noisy unless you put them far away. particularly TOSHIBA ones. I got rid of them last year.

Isn't that what most people do with a NAS, since it can go just about anywhere that there's a network connection? I've owned a number of 7200 RPM drives that have not been noisy. I don't think that has as much to do with it as the manufacturer and/or model and possibly the enclosure they are in. Not to say that this one in the OP is or isn't.

The manufacturers do not provide any kind of data that would allow someone to determine which hard drive is "better" than or "as good" as another one, at least in terms of reliability, which is what most people are asking about when they ask if one hard drive is "better' than or "as good" as another. If you're asking which is "better" than or "as good", in terms of performance, one can read reviews and do benchmarks to determine which one is "better" than or "as good" as another, but most people putting these into a NAS aren't going to be too worried about that. So you're going to just get random opinions and little data by asking this.

One thing to note - Looks like the coupon only works once per newegg account. So if you order couple of drives using the coupon code and then come back to order more later, it will not let you use the coupon code. Unless you login using a different newegg account. So either order up to limit allowed (5 drives/customer) all at once or use a different account. I had initially ordered 2. Then decided to order 2 more an hour later. It wouldn't let me use the same coupon code. So had to create another newegg account to order again and get the sale price.
