WD Red 6Tb or IronWolf NAS 6Tb

Recommended Posts

Hello,
 
I'm building a new NAS (RAID 5, 3x 6TB)  with openmediavault so it will not be a regular Synology or something like that.
 
I still don't know which hard disk to choose. I want something reliable and silent (very important).
 
I will mostly have my media library on it (Movies, TVShows) and also use it as a Backup storage for my computers.
 
Which one do you recommend between the IronWolf NAS 6TB and the WD Red 6TB ? Or anything else ?
 
Thank you for your help.

Both of those drives are going to be roughly in the same ballpark for noise. What platform will you be using and where will it be located? Rubber isolation to help with seek noise and just distance away from you will help the most.
