    Western Digital today announced the expansion of its WD Red® and WD Red Pro NAS hard drives family with the introduction of 10 TB capacity models.

    The main difference between WD Red Pro and WD Red is WD Red Pro spins at 7,200 RPM vs. 5,400 RPM for the Red, giving it a slight edge for performance-oriented professionals. Both join the other more than 15 million helium-based drives WD has shipped to date.

    WD is finalizing compatibility testing with a number of leading NAS system providers. WD has published a compatibility list of WD Red-qualified products and manufacturers here.

    The new WD Red and WD Red Pro 10TB hard drives are available now and feature a three-year limited warranty for the WD Red 10 TB and five years for the WD Red Pro 10 TB. MSRPs are $494 and $533, respectively. More information is available at https://www.wdc.com/products/internal-storage/wd-red.html.

    Will wait until the price hovers around or below $300

    Those are actually quite reasonably priced - it's pretty much in line with the rest of the Red product line.
