I am a newbie here.
I just purchased a Synology Ds2010 NAS Box. I’v read that the “green” drives do not work well
with RAID & NAS Boxes, so I’m looking at a Western Digital Caviar Black drive.
There’s 2 WD models being sold and one of them isn’t even listed on WDs site.
My question is, are both of the below drives the same.
One is bare and the other a retail box, both baring different model #'s
Synology lists the WD1001FALS 1 TB Drive as compatible. There’s also a retail WD Black Caviar with model#
WD10000LSRTL. They both appear to be t he same, however I’d hate to buy 2 of them and discover the latter isn’t compatible or as compatible and live a shorter life.
Thanks In advance
