ShareCenter Pulse DNS-320 - HDD compability?
« on: March 03, 2011, 09:18:41 AM »

Hi all,

Can someone tells me if any of the following disks will be compatible with the new ShareCenter Pulse DNS-320?
I cannot find any list on the web.

1) Samsung 2TB SpinPoint F4EG SATA3 32MB
| HD204UI/Z4

2) Seagate 2TB Barracuda Green SATA-600 64MB 7200RPM
| ST2000DL003

3) Western Digital 2TB Caviar Green SATA 64MB
| WD20EARS


Thanks

Do you think your transfer speed is related to the choice of the HDD?
How did you choose your HDD comparing to others? RPM, CACHE...etc etc

Hi Tekdes,

As mentioning in a thread I posted earlier today ( http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=37454.0 ), I'm using the following disk:

Hitachi 2TB 3.5" DESKSTAR 5K300 SATA 6GB/s Coolspin Hard Drive - 32MB Cache - HDS5C3020ALA6

Also - take note of ftp://ftp.dlink.co.uk/dns/DNS-320/compat_list/DNS-320_CompatibilityList.pdf - which is the most upto date compatibility list.

The disks you've mentioned though:

HD204UI/Z4 - I believe doesnt have direct warranty with samsung, only the reseller - something to be aware of (whether its a grey import i cant say)

I cant say much about the ST2000DL003 - it looks like it may have 4kb sectors which may prove a problem until dlink update the firmware for the dns-320...

I'd also stay away from 7200 drives - too much heat for a small enclosure. The speed benefit of the drive wont be noticed as the max interface speed is 1gbit..

Thanks billb,

I was pointing to the ST2000DL003  specially because of the 7200rpm speed comparing to the 5400rpm.
I though higher the rpm higher the speed on transfer datas. I didn't think about the heating problem.

The link you posted doen't work at the moment!
