Can anybody confirm which of the listed external hard drives (https://www.synology.com/en-global/compatibility) are compatible with the Synology RT1900ac router? Thanks in advance!

The list of compatible external HDDs is large. So, can anyone comment on which external HDDs work best with Synology routers? Is Seagate or Toshiba or Western Digital good to use with this router?
