3 out of 5 eggsSome DNS-343 are truly only 2TB

Pros: WIth 4 500G hard drives (non-NAS type) this thing ran like a dream for about 4 years straight.

Cons: Its not been made clear on any of the googling I've been doing but the first generation of these drives looks to be able to handle 2TB or under. Its not been made clear by Dlink that there IS a 2TB Model AND a 4 TB model. Both versions look exactly the same.

Other Thoughts: Ok so how did I come to this conclusion. I've not had a lot of time on my hands to investigate so here goes (please be gentle)...
I purchased 4 brand new 1 TB drives (gives about 2.87 after a RAID 5 build) and it had not been stable since. Keeps dropping drives (don't use the auto-rebuild option!!), and is left in a degraded state after I even tried two more fresh drives (after updating the firmware to v1.05). I would've never gone through this headache if Dlink had been clear by model number which units have which controller that can handle X amount of capacity.
You can't trust the S.M.A.R.T. results, and rebuilding didn't help, but that may be a failing of the firmware itself instead of it getting throttled with too much disk space 8)
I just wanted a black box with a RAID config where I didn't have to think about this. I guess I'll just take some old computer parts and build my own when I come up for air in the year 2020.
