Not what you're looking for? Go back to the ReadyNAS Hardware Compatibility List.

Because you trust ReadyNAS to protect your data, we only list drives that have passed stringent disk qualification tests. Furthermore, if you are using ReadyNAS in a business-critical environment, we strongly recommend drives with a Rotation Vibration Safeguard feature for providing an extra layer of protection from premature drive failure. These drives generally include 5-year warranties, which matches the 5-year warranty on your business-class ReadyNAS device.

We also encourage you to select drives that most closely align with your planned workload. Desktop class drives are designed for less stressful operation (typically 8 hours a day, 5 days a week) and have limited load/unload cycles. Enterprise class drives are designed for constant operation (typically 24 hours a day, 7 days a week) and have higher MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) rates as well as higher load/unload cycles. Selecting the wrong drive for your workload could result in early drive failure and possible data loss. Finally, it is good practice to always backup your data.
