Good news for Synology customers today, the Taiwan-based NAS specialist has announced that Seagate's 1.5TB hard-disk drive (model ST31500341AS) has been successfully tested as compatible with the Synology DS508, DS408, RS408 and RS408-RP.

Users of the aforementioned NAS products can feel free to utilise Seagate's 1.5TB drives without fear of incompatibility. Sadly, that good news doesn't carry across Synology's entire product range as its x06 series has been found incompatible, and both the x07 and x09 series are still being tested.

It's a small step forward, though, and we'll now be hoping other NAS providers follow suit by announcing 1.5TB hard-disk drive support on products of their own.

Edward Lin, marketing director of Synology, said:

"We have received strong request of using Synology NAS products with 1.5TB hard drives, and the compatibility of the Seagate 1.5TB drive with other Synology NAS models will be published on the Synology official website as soon as the testing process finishes."

The list of all tested-and-certified drives is available on Synology.com, and should be updated once x07 and x09-series testing is complete.

Official press release: Synology NAS Servers DS508, DS408, RS408/RS408-RP Now Support 1.5TB Hard Drive

Meh, it's all a bit silly really, NAS manufacturers having to work around buggy HDD firmwares. Pooy to Seagate for making rubbish disks.
