Is it still possible to enable TLER on these drives, or has WD blocked that?

I believe it can be changed, but the change is not saved to the drive. Once your system is powered down, the TLER settings are reset to normal.

If you need a drive with TLER, I would recommend looking at the new Red series.

Assuming it's like any relatively recent generation of Greens, it CANNOT be set at all.
You're stuck with the default.

I can't say exactly for this particular drive (or even batch) but any Greens I've tested since new batches WD20EARS cannot be set. Just goes to show how long ago I've done HDD testing LOL

I was planning on buying 3x3tb WD Reds for the Readynas NV+ V2 I'm buying. I already have a 3tb green in my computer that I was hoping I could add to the NAS as well, but from what I've read the Green don't do well in a NAS unless you can modify the Idle timer and turn on TLER.

Worst case scenario you test it and it fails.

I've got Greens from less than a year ago (more recent than DH) and all supported TLER. Both EARS and EARX, 2TB models.

That said, I've heard many stories on forums where people said it has to be set to a number rather than disabled, or the drives exhibit odd behaviour. 60 seconds seems to be a good number.

Someone on overclock.net built a 24-drive array out of 3TB drives (this model) - I think he said they supported TLER just fine. That said, when in doubt order just one first and try it.
