I replaced 8 x WD Red 3 TB drives with 4 x 8TB Seagate Ironwolf, to increase the capacity of my Raid set (via Areca 1882ix controller).
The disks rotate at 7200 compared to the 5400 max of the WD red disks. This gives a noticeable speed increase during bulk data copy and Raid initialisation. The downside is these discs are noticeable noisier the the WD red disks. The WD disks were silent. . The IronWolfs noise is not very loud, but present.

The other downside is the power consumption these disks consumer 12 watts each whilst running compared to the 7 watts of the WD Red. this results in a higher operating temperature. I had used low power silent fans to keep the disk array cool. The reds' ran at 28-32 C if used intensively. The Ironwolf runs at 35-40C.

I had very good experience with the reliability of the WD Red drives, only 2 failed disks 20 drives in 10 years. I have only had the Ironwolfs, a few days so cannot judge their reliability..

I bought the Ironwolfs, for their speed, but mainly due to the price being 15% cheaper than the WD red.
