on the synology's website, there's s list of compatible drives. Given that, I bought some that were NOT on that list ;-)


I've had mine for about a week now - so far so good. I got a great deal on Amazon for $106 each for hitachi 0S03228. I bought 5 of them. These drives are 'coolspin 5400'. There maybe heat issues if you are going after 7200 RPM.


I would recommend taking a look at their recommendations before venturing out. There is a dedicated forum for the 1511+ as well here at AVSForum, take a read there for some great info as well.


BTW, I just checked , the one's I bought - they are around $154 now - ouch !!

I go with the Western Digital Black series drives. They have a large built on cache and spin at 7200. There performance is very nice. There is also one pretty big deal ( at least to me ) on why I get the Black series drives. They all have a full 5 year warranty on them. The Blue and Green only have 3 year.
