Re: WD WD20EZRX

Since the unit is no longer under support, I'm not sure if any drive is technically supported any more.

Personally I installed WD20EARS drives years ago and they are still running strong.

Re: WD WD20EZRX

For what it is worth I have generally used Toshiba and Hitachi without problems. 

I have not had a lot of luck with the latest generation of WD and Seagate (same company?) drives and my DNS-323.
They dont go to waste - used in other boxes. 

Currently waiting - maybe in vain, for a stable version of ALT-F.  Then I will move up to 3TB or 4TB drives
Had five 323s but one went phut at the beginning of the year.  The other are great for overnight backups.

Re: WD WD20EZRX

I have always liked WD drives, been running them for 20+ years. They did go through a bad period though, but I've never had an issue personally. They continue to be my favorite.

Same with Seagate, I liked them despite running hot and loud. I had a 1.5TB Seagate die in the DNS323. At least I was able to monitor via SMART. Now I'm turned off them.

Re: WD WD20EZRX

To make myself clear, I too have no problem with these WD and Sgate drives.

The problem I have is that many of them - 2tb, will not format in a DNS323 no matter what firmware 1.08, 1.09, 1.10.  Similarly when formatting them in a linux environment and then putting them in, they do not format / work.  As far as I can see, it started with the 4k sector carry on.

My experience is that Toshiba and Hitachi format and run without problems.  WD and Seagate 2tb drives ARE NOT formatting and hence are not working in my 323s. 

Yes I have tried lots of tricks (and rebooted my system).

Re: WD WD20EZRX

I've had no issues with WD EAR drives (2TB). I'm currently running 4 of them.
