I have a Pegasus R6 with 6x2 TB Hitachi hard drives. Recently I had to replace one drive.
I would like to have much more capacity in this unit than the 8 TB (RAID 6) configuration I have now.
Your Pegasus1 compatibility list does not list anything larger than a 4 TB drive. :-(
It seems unfair that I can only double my current capacity, that I cannot buy these 10 TB drives to get 60 TB of raw capacity/40 TB RAID 6. I have no need for Thunderbolt 2 or 3 speeds in my home setup. The 4 TB drives in your Pegasus1 compatibility list are of limited availability these days.
How about certifying some more recent disks in your older products??
These units cost quite a bit of money, I do not feel like I should have to buy an entire new unit (that I cannot afford) just to get larger capacity disks. (For example, there was an amazing sale on Hitachi 10 TB drives a few days ago that I could not take advantage of.)
If we absolutely cannot use 8 or 10 TB drives, the compatibility list for the Pegasus2 R6 lists the Toshiba MD04ACA600 6 TB drive. Is that same drive likely to work fine in the Pegasus1 R6? Even if it is too 'new' to be included in the Pegasus1 compatibility list?
Thanks in advance for your answer.
