Over the last few months, I have been running both of my NAS appliances with purpose-built drives. One NAS has a set of WD Reds and the other has the Seagate NAS solution. While each of these drives are great in terms of reliability, they do lack in one area: performance.
Now, I am not saying the performance of the above solutions is terrible by any means, but what if you could increase the performance of your NAS at the offset of a bit more power consumption? If you are one that is willing to sacrifice a bit in terms of power savings, HGST may have a solution for you in the Deskstar NAS.
Specifications, Pricing and Availability
The Deskstar NAS, available in both 3TB and 4TB capacities, carries a 7200RPM spindle speed with 64MB of cache.

Idle power consumption of the drive is listed at 6.9 watts with a peak startup current of 1A for 5V and 2A for 12V. The HGST Deskstar NAS carries an MSRP of $229.99 for the 4TB capacity and $169.99 for the 3TB capacity.
