Western Digital Red WD30EFRX 3TB - $139.99

Recommended Posts

Am currently running these drives on an older Adaptec 5805 RAID card limited to 3 GB/s throughput. Don't have any noticeable lag or stutter when streaming HD content from my array, but was considering upgrading to a newer card that supports the full 6 GB/s access rate of these WD Red drives.

 

What kind of read/write speeds are you all getting with these drives on 6 GB/a SATA ports?

      Black Friday and Cyber Monday are good days for RESET. Online guys like me depend on a few sales in order to pay for the site, CES, etc.  I would REALLY appreciate if you would use links here on RESET Forums to shop with.  If you have an ad blocker please "UNBLOCK" this site.  I use a small javascript to monetize links and most ad blockers block that.  You will see nothing funny and I'll get credit for your purchases. Small credit, but it helps!  Thank you.

      Tons of cool deals on Amazon today.  I thought I would show you a few of them.
       
      Let's start with Amazon Show. Not the expensive one, the DIY Show!
       
      Fire Tablet with Alexa - $49.99 - http://amzn.to/2xJMvcS
      Tablet Stand $9.59 - http://amzn.to/2wGlOcf
      JBL Bluetooth Speaker - http://amzn.to/2vGGOem
       
      I'm currently trying to think of ways to use the battery operated LED strings and who can't use a bluetooth headset.  I have two here for you.  Read up on them.
       
        
      Yes, I think the wall mounted hand gets thing could be handy in the house.  Where everyone comes in right? Garage?
       
      And lastly, I love this set of battery operated yard tools. http://amzn.to/2xJP2DU. It's not gas powered backpack kind of power but it's VERY handy.  I have one of the little blowers and LOVE it.  You can grab it real quick and swoosh away anything.

      The batteries go into a ton of other devices too.  Take a look!

      Hi all, 
      New to the forum and also New Gen 8 owner. I was hoping some one could clarify some info on the drive bays/on board controller. From what I have read so far, the 1st and 2nd bays are 6g and the 3rd and 4th are 3g (Sata speed?). I have also read somewhere that this is because of "wiring" (of the drive cage). Does this mean that if I added a SAS controller card (HP240 Smart Host) and connected the cable to it, the drives would still operate at those speeds? I just happened to have the HP240 lying around and thought this might improve the speed and allow me to use the onboard controller for boot and cache drives.
      Opinions/input from those more experienced would be greatly appreciated!!!
       
      Regards,
