Since the drive’s performance made it obvious that this is more of a drive meant for lower file transfer and Sequential transfers, this test will give a better look at how fast this drive can perform.

WD Red 3TB takes a little bit lesser time to transfer data- whether its ISO, Zipped or uncompressed- provided the file size is smaller. As you can see, transferring very large and uncompressed folders with 98.39GB of data stacked in random folders takes more time compared to other drives with 3TB capacity.

  1. Very good review. And I’m particularly impressed with WD red in terms of its performance. Price is a bit steep but that happens with product just after launching.
