Enterprise Drives vs Consumer Drives

Thanks for reaching out and for your kind words about our YT reviews! It sounds like you've got quite the plan for your first NAS setup. When it comes to choosing between consumer and enterprise drives, there are a few things to consider.

For your usage scenario, where stability, performance, and noise levels are key factors, I'd recommend going with smaller capacity WD Red Plus drives. These drives strike a great balance between affordability, reliability, and performance, making them an ideal choice for your living room NAS setup. With WD Red Plus drives, you can trust that your data will be safe and accessible, whether you're storing photos, backing up files, running a Plex server, or editing videos of your kids' sports highlights.

Regarding noise levels during movie playback on Plex, most NAS systems are designed to be quiet during regular operation, including media streaming. Plus, setting backup tasks to run overnight can help minimize any potential disruption during evening use.
