But it's Seagate. No confidence

On top of that, 1 yr warranty
did a check, warranty is until sep 2019 but same thing, no confidence on seagate
just brought it cause cheap and im not storing important data on it

So recommended HDD for Synology NAS is Toshiba/WD/Hitachi? What model or type? I remem WD shud b red rite?
for me is in the order below
1) Hitachi(HGST) desktop nas
2) Toshiba normally people just get the normal desktop hdd
