Using WD20EFRX red for NAS in Netgear WNDR4700 router

Has anyone tried this? Although the WD20EARX (green) is listed by Netgear as compatible, the WD20EFRX (red) is not listed, and Netgear custormer service does not provide any information. I think the red is may be more reliable in this NAS application, provided there are no other problems it would cause. Speed is not the major concern.


Currently, we haven’t test the WD Red with the Netgear WNDR4700 router.
