I was wondering if the continuity of Raid extends across the board to all NAS? I know installing hard drives are compatible to all mfg of computers and motherboards.
 
I guess it is like "Apple deciding that you can not charge Apple devices with a standard USB, you have to use their proprietary charging cable", or maybe Home Depot saying if you buy a hammer from HD then you can't use nails bought from Lowes. I have always hated the guy who designed the original USB plug making it polarized for no good reason...50-50 chance of trying to connect it.

This is simply an incompatibility issue - hard drives formatted for use in a QNAP NAS cannot simply be moved over to a Synology device without being reformatted. Two completely different devices and operating systems.
