Can I pull out the (2) 500 GB hard drives and replace them with (4) 3 TB drives?  I'm not sure if the ex475 would be limited in any way or not?

Yes you can pull and replace both drives. I'm running 4x2TB drives plus an external esata JBOD enclosure with 2x1.5TB.


Running 3TB drives you'll need 48-bit LBA addressing which I don't know if the device supports or not.



Also a word of warning when using large arrays (for this box) you need to upgrade the ram 1GB min to prevent it from choking on it's own data.
