The WD Red Pro carries on the same aesthetics as the Red. We have the capacity listed at the top with the drive model and cache amount displayed to the right.

The drives SATA power and data connectors are lined up correctly, so there should be no issues with hot swap trays.

Here we look at the drive with the PCB removed. The WD Red Pro 4TB uses a new design where part of the connections are housed under or inside the platter tray.

Above, we have the PCB removed from the drive where we get a look at the Marvell controller in the center, followed by 64MB of Samsung DRAM for the cache and WDHC8TD motor driver.
