NAS Hard drive

sorry for my ignorance, but im building my first amd rig with 120gb SSD and for storage i saw that this 2TB NAS hard drive was cheap, so i went ahead and bought it. My question is would that be ok for a storage hard drive, because im not familiar with NAS?

    We'd need the manufacturer and model number to make an informed opinion.

    Those are variable speed drives and are designed for RAID arrays and NAS stuff so they will prolly be a little slower that WD Blacks or Seagate Barracudas, but it should work OK.
