WD Red 1TB 2.5" NAS HDD
Our review sample of the new WD Red was delivered in bare drive form. The first thing we noticed was, of course, the Red labelling. At the top you will find the capacity listed, ours being 1TB.
The backside of the drive houses a green PCB with several Torx screws holding it in place.
The SATA power and data connections are placed in position for wide compatibility.
With our scale, we can see that the WD Red weighed in at 3.85 ounces.
Measuring the drives thickness, the Red came in at 9.22mm.
Here we have the PCB removed from the drive. At the top, we have the connection for the head, with a set of four pin for the spindle. Over to the PCB, you will find the Marvell 88i9446 controller with the WD Nautilus to the left, and at the top the ESMT 16MB cache.
