Netgear ReadyNAS RN312 Max Drive Size
Looking to get the largest drive size that has been tested in the Netgear ReadyNAS RN312 (the entry level two bay storage unit). The official statement is that 4TB drives are the largest that have been tested, but the units are not new and of course 5TB - 10TB drives were not available to test in it. There is nothing that would make it not work with 10TB drives, but just wondering if anyone had tested something larger than a 4TB drive?
That datasheet is from when we first released the RN312.
The WD RED 6TB WD60EFRX is on the list (http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/20641).
Do you have a different high capacity disk in mind?
The issue with some high capacity disks can be screws in unusual positions etc.
Not all drives are equal, but in a 2-bay you may be able to get away with more than you would with models with more drive bays.
Wow, there are 10TB drives available now. Amazing! One of those 10TB disks would cost multiple times what the RN312 cost though.
