a small contribution here.

I can confirm that WD100EFAX-68LHPN0 ( 10Tb) is working perfect in my TS-253 8Gb Pro.

Great!

It's also listed on the Qnap disk compatibility list for the model in question. In addition to that it's listed as compatible for 78 other Qnap models so I think that pretty much all Qnap users, even with unlisted models, can feel pretty confident about compatibility.
RAID have never ever been a replacement for backups. Without backups on a different system (preferably placed at another site), you will eventually lose data!

A non-RAID configuration (including RAID 0, which isn't really RAID) with a backup on a separate media protects your data far better than any RAID-volume without backup.

All data storage consists of both the primary storage and the backups. It's your money and your data, spend the storage budget wisely or pay with your data!

Thanks for the update.

Can you please let us know your temperature observations when the discs are idle?

My WD80EFZX (8 TB) is hotter by 4-6C on average in comparison with a WD60EFRX (6 TB) in the same box. The 6TB has temperatures similar to the 4TB model I previously had - these are around the 31-33C.

Hi!
The list in https://www.qnap.com/en-in/compatibility are definitive?
Or it is maked in base of user experiences posted in the forums?

It is possible what a Hard Disk missing of that list for my NAS would be compatible anyway?
...or if that Hard Disk is missing from that list means what is INCOMPATIBLE with my NAS.

My question is because I'm thinking in buy a 10 TB WD Red Wd100EFAX hard disk but it is missing of the compatibility list of my TS-210 NAS.
I try to remember and I am almost sure what when years ago I buy a 6 TB WD Red disk was also missing of that list and I buy it anyway and when I installed works without a problem. (That disk is NOW in the compatibility list of TS-210).

Maybe this happens again but I am trying to be sure because this disk is pretty expensive.

Thanks in advance!

Note: The 10 TB WD Red Wd100EFAX figures as compatible for other QNAP models... this means what QNAP tested that disk in ALL models (even in TS-210) and only in certain models works?

If a drive is not on the compatibility list for a particular model it means that QNAP has not tested it or it failed the tests.
Read the Online Manuals and use the forum search feature before posting.

It is a recommended to use RAID and have external backups. RAID will protect you from disk failure, keep your system running, and data accessible while the disk is replaced and the RAID rebuilt. Backups will allow you to recover data that is lost or corrupted, or from system failure. One does not replace the other.

Hello,

does anybody know if the 10TB HDD is also compatible with the QNAP 469L x86 ? . Slowly my old 4TB Hard disks are starting the get errors and I would like to exchange them 1 by 1 with 10TB HDDs also to upgrade.

Would this even make sense? or should I buy 4 new hard disks and exchange the whole system?!

Thanks in advance,

I believe the 469 has a 16TB volume limitation so unless you are running 2 x RAID 1 or single volumes you cannot upgrade to 10TB disks.

Hi,

I've just bought a WD Red 8TB NAS (wd80efax) and installed it into my QNAP TS-251+.

I previously had a WD Green 1TB inside the QNAP and it was fairly silent.

The WD Red makes a constant vibrating/humming sound 24/7 - is this normal?

Hi
I've a probem with those disks or at least i've those to use my Qnap 420.
I need to ask someone why my Qnap 430 reset everytime i try to connect more than 2 hdd. I've a 120W power adaptor so i dont think i've too few power.

I try yet to reset my qnap and start again but I've same problem: the qnap restart in a infinite loop after 1 second he start.

I try to connect the disk in different slot and disk but dont seems change a thing. THe qnap reset just when i put the 3rd or the 4th of it like he dont have power to spare...

My power is a "edacpower elec ea11351a-120 12v 10A"

Any help will be appreciated.

Best regards
Eskevar

Is that the stock power supply?

It sounds like the power supply is not providing enough power to power up all 4 drives.
