One of the drives in my TeraStation Live (HS-DHTGL/R5) just died, so I was looking at replacing it. While searching, I came across this thread which talks about it not supporting larger drives due to power consumption.

The manual says, "Do not use a replacement Hard Disk Drive which has more than 0.92A at 5Vdc and 0.9A at 12Vdc for the specification of current load." All the WD drives I looked at the specs for used at least 1A (if I'm reading them correctly), including the Green ones.

So, did I misunderstand or are there not many drives that will work according to the spec?

Thanks!

as example

WD green 3TB needs 7,15W

from
https://www.anandtech.com/show/3981/western-digital-caviar-green-3tb-and-my-book-essential-3tb-drives-reviewed/9

7,17 : 12V = 0,59A

But can you use 4096 bytes per sector drives?
I am thinking no.
