WD Red Plus 12TB

The WD Red Plus 12TB hard drive belongs among the high load internal HDDs for NAS systems. The 3.5" format is designed mainly for data centres and desktop PCs. One of the key characteristics is undoubtedly the rotational speed of the HDD. The 7200 RPM RPM provides improved system performance and faster data transfer. The total capacity of the hard drive is 12000 GB. The device features a 256 MB memory cache. You can connect the Western Digital hard disk and other hardware is takes place using the SATA III interface.

Other HDD Features

Standard HDDs are notable for their construction. Inside the drive there is a mechanism that uses moving platters, complete with disk read and write heads. These mechanical parts don't take shocks and impact well, but this weak point is well-compensated by an excellent price/storage capacity ratio. The crucial criterion that determines the speed of a hard drive is the number of platter revolutions per minute, generally known as RPM. With the WD Red Plus 12TB, we have 7200 RPM revolutions per minute. This should delight the more demanding users, such as graphic designers, gamers, video editors, and people who tend to use large amounts of data. Data transmission and stability is also determined the embedded buffer memory known as cache. The Western Digital HDD is equipped with a 256 MB cache that keeps the last written data for their prompt retrieval and reading.

Connecting the Western Digital Hard Disk

If you want to install the WD Red Plus 12TB in your computer or other device, it requires a 3.5" slot. The communication between the HDD and PC takes place through the SATA III interface, boasting a standard speed of 6 Gbit/s. The technology is one of the most popular HDD data transfer solutions available and delivers a speed of 600 MB/s.
