WD Red SA500 Review: 4TB of SSD Storage for Your NAS

 

Big bulky SSDs are headed to a NAS near you

High-capacity, up to 4TB ; Power efficient ; Robust endurance ; Competitive performance ; 5-year warranty

SSD price-per-GB is high compared to HDD for NAS usage

WD’s Red SA500 NAS SSD is a direct response to Seagate’s IronWolf 110, but with its lower cost-per-GB, it is a much better value for those who don’t need extreme write endurance. WD’s Red SA500 is robust enough for most users and is significantly...

Very speedy. Benchmarked this device compared to two Kingston 250Gb SATA SSDs on a RAID 0. Although the Kingstons outperformed this drive on sequential RW operations, this drive was twice as fast at random R/W operations
