Synology will only allow specific hard drives in their NAS devices?

These are very concerning news. Have you heard anything about this?

Enterprises may be used to that but for consumers, it looks like a deal breaker.

From what I read at ServeTheHome, this only applies to 3 enterprise tier models priced at $3400 and up.

I can see them needed certified drives in the Enterprise market where there may be higher end warranties, SLAs, etc. in place.
