Looking for recommended best price, performance and reliability Hard Drive Make and Model to use on my Synology DS418.
Power Consumption and Noise Levels are no concern.
The most reliable / performance drive will be WD Red and Seagate Ironwolf. If I need to pick one then WD Red. They are made for NAS environments and still save some energy when possible.
If you want peace of mind get Seagate Ironwolf Pro drives or separate HDD recovery service. Then if your drive fails, they will recover data from a drive or even a raid for free.
