You'd have to check with Iomega to be sure, but we had an iomega NAS device, not the same model number as yours. that we had in a RAID config and one of the disks failed and they said that we had to replace the disk with the exact same disk; which was not possible since the device was so old. I've since  moved to Buffalo devices as they seem to accept any appropriate disk.  But Iomega may have made changes to their line since then, so it would be worth a call to Iomega.

I call Iomega support and they told me that If the NAS is out of warranty I can change the hard disk but be careful to have some capacity, rotation speed and cache.

Here is a page from the manual that will probably answer your question.

My first comment wasn't wrong. I specifically said to check with Iomega. My experiences with them was correct, but I cautioned the asker that their approach to NAS devices may have changed.

While true that my second comment was a link to a manual and browsing the manual gives a fairly detailed description of how to change out a drive. I attempted in the link to route the asker to the specific page, but because the actual link is not displayed as you move through the manual I was not successful in that.
