Featuring 512 MB cache memory, the gargantuan 22 TB WD Red Pro mechanical hard drive was designed with NAS and server use scenarios in mind. Its highlights include a yearly workload rate of 300 TB and NASware 3.0 error recovery. Thanks to a 23% discount, it is now down from US$599.99 to US$459.99.

Mechanical hard drives might be dead for some home users, but many NAS and server applications continue to take full advantage of the massive capacities provided for little money, as it happens with the 22 TB WD Red Pro. This drive arrived last year with more than US$600 written on its price tag, but now it is listed for US$599.99 on Amazon. However, the ongoing 23% discount pushes it all the way down to US$459.99.

Designed for 24/7 use, the WD Red Pro with model number WD221KFGX is a CMR drive with a 512 MB cache and a rotational speed of 7200 RPM that uses the SATA interface. It supports up to 300 TB/year workload rate and features technologies such as 3D Active Balance Plus and NASware 3.0 for increased reliability and error recovery.

Covered by a 5-year limited warranty that might not be available in all regions, the WD Red Pro lineup has a 4.6/5-star rating on Amazon after 3,755 validated user reviews. Since the 22 TB stock is currently running low, you might want to check the 20 TB model as well (WD201KFGX), which is currently down from US$499.99 to US$369.99 thanks to a generous 26% discount. Models with sizes between 2 TB and 18 TB are also available.
