The WD Red 6TB hard drive ranks among the high load internal HDDs compatible with NAS data storage solutions. The 3.5" format is designed chiefly for data centres and desktop PCs. One of the main characteristics is obviously the rotational speed. The 5400 RPM RPM should satisfy most typical users. The hard disk provides a storage capacity of 6000 GB. The device uses a 256 MB memory cache. The data transfer between the Western Digital hard disk and the PC or other devices is facilitated using the SATA III interface.
Standard HDDs are notable for their construction. Inside the hard drive there is a mechanism that uses moving platters, complete with disk read and write heads. These moving parts can be damaged by a shock or impact, but at the same time you get an excellent price/storage capacity ratio. The crucial criterion that determines the speed of a platter hard disk is the number of rotations per minute (RPM). With the WD Red 6TB, you can look forward to 5400 RPM revolutions per minute. You can find these drives mainly in PCs designed for effective office work but nothing particularly performance-intensive. Data transmission and overall stability is also influenced by the disk buffer, usually called cache. The Western Digital platter drive includes a 256 MB cache that keeps the last written data for their prompt retrieval and reading.
If you want to install the WD Red 6TB in your computer or other device, you need a 3.5" slot. Data transfer happens through the SATA III interface with a speed of 3 Gbit/s. This technology is one of the most popular HDD data transfer options available and delivers a speed of 600 MB/s.
