TVS-471

Post by FlaParrotHead » Fri Aug 16, 2019 1:08 am

Is the 6TB drive limit on the subject box still the max? Is this a limitation of the hardware vs. the software.

Is the WD red (or red pro) still the best option? I need to replace a 6TB Drive and was hoping to push up to the 8 TB but maybe it doesn’t work on the 471.

what is a subject box limit ?

if you mean disk size, there is no such limit on the CAT2 471 .. why would you think that ?

According to their own spec sheet.

That info-graphic does not show a drive capacity limit of 6TB.

It does mention support for 6Gbps drives, but this is an interface speed, not a capacity. ;)
