WD Red or Red Pro for a RAID 10 array?

I'm planning to get a WD My Cloud Pro 4100 as a RAID 10 server for my Premiere and After Effects media.

https://www.wd.com/en-gb/products/network-attached-storage/my-cloud-pr4100.html

I'll also be getting 4 x 8TB drives, and I'm considering between WD Red and Red Pro options.

I'm concerned that the speed of the non-pro is 5400 RPM vs 7200 for the pro version, though I understand that the read speed will increase due to the RAID configuration.

I'm also concerned about noise from the pro drives as the unit will be installed in my bedroom, with occasional overnight renders!


Can anyone advise?
