Synology DS620slim compatible 2.5 inch drives
#1
After seeing your review of the DS 620 slim I’ve decided that this is the appropriate Nas for me given that I am an apartment dweller and do not have a separate room to put a noisy Nas in. I cannot afford to do an all SSD Nas at this time so I must use quiet drives. The slim seems to be a good fit for the Nas but I’m not sure what drives to put in it to keep it relatively quiet. I’m looking at the Seagate barracuda 5 TB right now. Will this be a quiet system with those drives? Are those drives acceptable for a blow to moderate use Nas? Are there better drivers to be using in the slim with the 2.5 inch form factor? Having difficulty finding 2.5 inch Nas drives anywhere on the Internet including Amazon. Thank you very much for any assistance you can give me.

Yes, since all laptops are now using SSD instead of 2.5inch HDD, it might be more difficult to get your hands on these type of drives.
Synology do support Baracuda drives. Here is a list of compatible 2.5inch drives. You can start with 2-3 bays and add more drive when you need to.
