I would like to purchase the Synology DS418play. I will be using it for storage and for video playback via Plex. Which hd's would you recommend? The WD Red 7200, WD Red 5400, WD Red 7200 PRO, WD red Pro with 256 cache? I want to make sure that video will play smoothly. The NAS will be used for home use and not by many users like a business. Thank you.

We highly would recommend at least getting 7200RPM drives. The WD 4TB Red Pro would be the top choice.
