I’ve learned the Drobo Mini only accepts 7 - 9.5mm high drives -
I’ve found the following drives in 1TB / 9.5mm. Can anybody add to this list or confirm other 1TB models they’ve used successfully?
The Western Digital Scorpio Blue 1TB (WD10JPVT) -
Seagate Momentus 1 TB - Retail Kit STBD1000100 - (Not 100% sure if 9.5mm) - All the Momentus product matrices I’ve found conveniently leave out the 1TB Model
Hitachi TravelStar 5K1000 (0J22413) (HTS541010A9E680)
Samsung SpinPoint SATA 5400rpm 8 MB Cache 1 TB 2.5-Inch Hard Drive (M8 HN-M101MBB)
I know WD acquired Hitachi, and Seagate acquired Samsung… So I’m not sure about the futures of those model lines / brand names.
Has anybody successfully used any other 1TB 2.5" drives? Most of these new 1TB 2.5" drives support “advanced format” - 4K blocks - does this matter to the Drobo Mini?
