4TB for RNDP200U

Hello,

Does anybody have tried 4TB HDD (seagate ST4000DM000 or WD WD40EZRX) with a ready NAS ultra 2+?
Actually I have 2x2TB seagate ST2000DL003 and I'm a little bit out of space!

Thank you

PS : The firmware I use is RAIDiator 4.2.25.

4TB disks should work. I would avoid Green disks if I were you.

I've tried the WD40EFRX (WD Red) and the ST4000VN000 in my Ultra 2 Plus. I can't recommend the WD drive for reasons described here: https://www.readynas.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=73417. The Seagate, on the other hand, worked fine; it's a better NAS drive than the ST4000DM000 and it only costs a few dollars more. I'm not planning to buy anything but ST4000VN000s in the future.

WD or Seagate? which one gives more bang to buck?

The drives are pretty close in performance. Today the Seagate appears to be slightly cheaper in the US. Tomorrow who knows?
