SATA problem? - maybe faulty port.

OK. 2yrs+ liao. Is this temperature normal? What is the argah argah room temperature?

i stay top floor, so my house is generally like an oven.. i never measure it before though nothing to measure with but i would say the temp is pretty consistent with any hdd that I've throw at it.

Do you think it can fit 80x80x25? Saw a number of people changing thier fans with normal PC fans

I suppose it can fit in DS1511+, based on various comments and review. They are using Noctua NF-A8 FLX, my only concern it's rotatary sensor on older DS1511+ which will still detect as fan fail.

What hdd u using? Why will it keep crashing?

I m assuming you might have the same challenge i have previously which is a NAS issue over HDD. Synology insisted was HDD and i kept swapping. Waste time. In the end a change of NAS resolved everything.

Show your hdd smart health easier.

Hi all, will I see an increase in performance if I change from 1511+ to DS418 or DS918+? I'm using it mostly for file backups mostly.

Been using the following each for 2 - 3 years straight with very low issues

HGST 4TB (about 3 drives)
Seagate NAS 4TB (about 8 drives

now

Seagate Ironwolf Pro 10TB (about 13 drives)

I did have issues with a WDC Red drive only had one of those, some IO issues now I stopped using them.

no because you are still being limited by the 1Gbps throughput.

Currently, all the hard drives in my PC are WD Black. One of them reaching 5yrs and no problem. The other 2 are about 3yrs+.

Hrmm I guess hard to assess though, unless they also run 24x7 in a multi drive array. Cause have to account for vibrations, and heat etc and usage etc for a better comparison in a NAS environment.
