    Define exactly what you mean by "best" when you use the word.

    I wouldn't recommend going on just brand as each brand makes quite a few lines and models of hard drive.

    The Synology compatibility list can be found at:

    I have a Synology DS1511+ NAS. I use 5 Samsung HD204UI drives in it. Never had any issues, and I find they always run pretty cool.

    Sorry should have clarified, by best I meant best performing. What are people's experience of the differing hard drives? I have seen the compatability list by synology, but just wanted people's opinions. As re: the bump, was unaware of this "no bump" rule, seems a little unnecessary and OTT
