    I just ordered the X20 and am getting it on 16th July.

    I want to buy an HDD before it arrives so what's the best HDD in term of speed and size?

    I read the WD RED is the best match for it so am thinking of getting a 1TB or 2TB.

    Dose the size effect the speed?

    Thank you. :)

    brand should not matter, unless it's a no name local brand, WD,seagate,samsung, all should work

    as for capacity. i'd recommend 4TB for best size/price , something with 5200-5900 RPM.
    if you plan to run the box only when watching movies. than a desktop HDD will work just fine. like a 5400 RPM baracuda or WD blue
    if you plan 24/7 NAS , Seagate ironwolf 4TB 5900 PRM comes in mind or if you really want. WR red

    Thank you for your response.

    Brand doesn't matter to me too but WD is more popular where i live so i can find various of sizes and types.

    I guess I will buy a WD blue 4TB.

    make sure you check local prices to make sure 4TB is still worth it.

    I use two WD Red 6TB drives in my player and used the same drives in my last player (Zappiti). Works perfectly!
