stick to hgst if budget allow, if not can consider toshiba (4tb $149 before discount, oversea) or even seagate (4tb $139 before discount, 2 years local warranty)
Try Toshiba 7200rpm 4TB at $153 from Tradepac? Their stock is from Kaira.
WOW, that's cheap ! Is Toshiba reliable ? I never have Toshiba HD at home.

For DS918+ user, what is the feedback? Is this a good buy?

I am thinking to buy a NAS to store my download file.

Is HGST Deskstar good for NAS?

.
Rather than getting feedback, you should state your budget & usage for DS918+. The plus series is the top of line range.

Thank you for your feedbacks.


How about Seagate Ironwolf 4TB NAS ? Any issue with Synology NAS ?

The name tells it all.

Need some advice.

Have a DS916+ with 4 drives loaded. Need more space.

Would I be better off with a DS918+ with 4 drives or a 2nd hand DX513 with 5 drives?

The latter will attach to the DS916+.

are you comfortable with the DS916+ performance?
if yes, get the 2nd hand DX513 (Cheaper than getting a DS918+)
why not just upgrade the drive to higher capacity?

Thanks for the advice.

Was considering upgrading the current drivers, but I'll need to go to 6TB or higher, which are rather expensive.

Currently running on 4 x 3TB. Quite satisfied with the DS916+ performance.

Will recommend dx513 instead than to buy a new nas too

Easier to manage and cheaper as well.

WOW, that's cheap ! Is Toshiba reliable ? I never have Toshiba HD at home.
I began slowly replacing my WD Green 3tb when Synology starts detecting errors for the last 2 years. So far I've replace 7 toshiba 3tb drives. The WDs ran for 5 years 24x7 and 3 different Synology NAS.

During the replacements I once bought a 3tb WD blue but it fail within 6 months. RMAed and keep it as spare. Bought Toshiba drives since then.

1 toshiba failed so far but most probably my fault, accidentally knock power cable off.Yet to RMA as I'm still looking for the receipt.

When it comes to hdd brand, it's always a hit and miss. Even seagate iron wolf can fail sooner than MTBF due to many factors.

But I personally stay away from Seagate. Too many times fail or errors within warranty period. Been buying drives since brand like Maxtor is around.
