But I think there is still a large “knee” in the pricing-curve above 4 TB, right?
That’s a great point. I’m reading all this to decide on a 2TB 2.5 internal hard drive. There should be a list of recommended hard drives. Seagate Sata 2.5 and WD Blue Sata 2.5 is Tablo’s list. A Tablo tech making suggestions after the fact is aggravating.

Just a follow-up to my Aug 2018 post -
The LaCie d2 Thunderbolt 2, 4TB USB 3.0 7200RPM Desktop External Hard Drive (STEX4000400)] is still working great, even after moving it to a new Quad a few months ago.
CONFIRMED - GOOD

So are these all external drives or drives for the Quad using SATA, or what? Loaded question.
The tablo quad has USB 2 for external connections, my D2 Thunderbolt / USB 3 Lacie drive is overkill, but a brand and model I trust.
The internal connection found in the Quad is SATA, (limited to 2.5" [laptop] drives)
Hope that answers your question.
I said it was a loaded question, I noticed nobody appears to be specifying which Tablo they are testing against for the most part. I assume the Quad on SATA has a far larger hard drive base that’ll work, at least of the 2.5 inch variety… I assume any 2.5 inch drive should work with the Quad on the SATA connector.
(7mm or 9.5mm) 2.5-inch internal SATA drives are supported.

COMMENTS. Started with a FireCuda, did not work (but not yet confirmed bad), never got a prompt to format in startup wizard. Tried barracuda, same problem Tried many many things. Solved by logging in to the Quad with a different device, which gave me toe format prompt, and it all ended well.
