Seeing as my 2TB HDD is more than 4/5th's full,I thought I'd upgrade to the 3TB. Any idea which make etc would suit the x10? I'm looking at a few Western Digital's,but I'm confused whether the green or red is the best option? Also the RPM speed?
Cheers.

Any 3TB WD red is more for NAS devices & has a spin-down & Green for general use & also saves energy.
Both are OK...i would go green.

oh if i could add something ...you may format on windows to extend to 3TB.
Some win o/s can't read 3TB, unless you prefer the faster transfer via SMB or FTP - PC & X10
eg.
1. \\X10 or IP or Network menu on PC
2. Access LocalStorage/HDD1 (.DB/Music DB)
3. Copy to & from...etc

FTP isn't bad either...
Green is ok as X10 has a spin-down option(ON/OFF/timer settings) on the impending FW (according to cocktail audio/AV10 Limited).
The current FW one spins down after 20 minutes default.

I have the x10 connected thru the ethernet cable. I share a folder on my pc that I put my albums in that I want to add to my x10 then access that folder on the x10 and transfer them that way. To be honest I never knew that some OS had problems with the 3TB HDD's...That explains why when I plugged in my 4TB media player into my pc thru the USB I had nothing but trouble. So again,with that I go down the ethernet route.
