Synology DS213j NAS and Green 4TB WD40EZRX - compatibility

Hello guys,

I’m interested in buying a WD Green 4TB disk WD40EZRX. I would use that with a DS213j NAS.

Then disk is not listed in any of Synology’s compatibility sheet (the Red version is, but I’ve read several people complaining about DOAs and other failures, so I would prefer going with the Green disks).

Do you know if the disk  works on DS213j or any other Synology NAS?


Hi green drives are only recommended as a second storage solution. WD does not recommend them for raid or even as a boot drive. Go with the Red drives
