Would it be such a bad idea to put one of these in my NAS? I know you're meant to use the WD red but what do they do that makes it £30 more?

A bit more vibration damping, some different logic in case of errors (desktop drives try to recover, NAS drives fail immediately and let the RAID controller you're using fix things), warranty length. That's it. Given how finicky RAID controllers have been for me I run JBOD these days and let Ceph handle the duplication side. As a bonus it can grow across multiple machines so expansion is easy and if any one computer goes down my data's still fine.

Ta. Yeah I wasn't planning on putting mine in a RAID array. Just want some more storage. It wouldn't have anything that I couldn't get again on it...

Sure. Don't have to go the whole hog and apply for a credit account though. I think you just need a legitimate limited company name with associated email address (and possibly a functioning website). Worth doing if you can as you get free next day delivery for orders over £30.
