Hey all, I've got a 1TB WD Caviar Black that I store photos onto and I recently got a D-Link DNS-320 that I want to use it's Raid 1 capabilities to backup photos. My question is can I use a 1TB HDD from another manufacturer such as the Samsung Spinpoint F3 without running into any issues? Thanks in advance.

Unless it's really finicky, you should be able to.

The drawback is performance will be the slower of the two.

Also what you need to ask yourself is if the drive can be converted to RAID 1 without losing the data.
