Tablo currently supports external hard drives that are USB2 compatible. This includes USB 3.0 drives that are backwards compatible.
Our most recommended drive is the Western Digital Elements. Any size!
We do not currently support:
USB Flash storage – Flash is simply not fast enough
Networked (NAS) storage – There is too wide a variation in network speeds to support this
For additional information on which hard drives work best with Tablo, visit http://www.tablotv.com/blog/back-away-from-that-flash-drive
The Tablo community forum has a thread compiling a list of hard drives that our users have seen success with. Visit that thread here.
