Introduction

This document is by no means an exhaustive list; as most 3.5” SATA HDDs should be compatible. It is strongly advised to choose a hard drive model designed for continuous load, often marketed as NAS or Surveillance grade drives.  

If you have questions about a particular drive, please search for the drive model on our Community to find other user’s accounts of past experiences or start a new related thread if none are found. Please note that support will not be able to provide further recommendations or options beyond referring to this list.

This table may be expanded in the future as more drives are tested.  Drives are sorted alphabetically by model number.
