What are the best SAS drives to pair with NS370TB3?

The NS370TB3 uses the Areca ARC-1214 RAID card inside to connect with the hard drives for work. Therefore, please go to:




Select SAS/SATA RAID adapters for component type, ARC-1214 for model name, Compatibility for Item Type. Then download the latest HDD compatibility list PDF (2019/06/03) for the ARC-1214 RAID card.


Open the HDD compatibility list PDF (2019/06/03). Go to page 4; it has stated “The following table is the list of current qualified SAS drives”.


Then you will see four Hitachi (HGST) SAS hard drive models from 6TB through 12TB that are the recommended HGST SAS drives. It has listed:


HUH728080AL5200  (HGST Ultrastar He8):



HUH721010AL5200  (HGST Ultrastar HE10):


Do the NS370TB3 controllers use Areca Webgui software? I have an older Areca Model; will I be able to swap out the existing 4 HDD into this new unit?

Yes, you will be able to use your old HDD in the newest unit.

For testing, we used a mac mini(TB2) ==> Deivce(TB2) ==> Apple TB2 to TB3 converter ==> NS370TB3, and the result shows it works.

Therefore, you will need an Apple TB2 to TB3 converter as well.
