What does QNAP recommend as far as a HDD?

I just bought a QNAP TS-251A. I love this device. It's got some really cool features. For one, Qsync & ISCSI were great!

Before I buy some new drives for the thing, I was wondering whether QNAP recommended a curtain kind of Hard Drive?

As it sits right now, I have a mixed matched set of 1 Seagate 2TB and 1 Western Digital 2TB. I just had these drives laying around so I'm using them for testing purposes. Although I won't be using these drives as my permanent drives, I am getting an error message on the Western Digital. Does QNAP work better with Seagate?

Thanks,

Check the QNAP compatibility list for drives.
