Re: Hard Drive Deals

I don't think they are yet, but I'm hoping they will be (and at a reasonable price) by the time I need them. 16TB goes so fast :P

I got quite the shock the other day when I checked the smart stats on my 2TB Green drives only to find the oldest ones had half a million start/stop cycles due to intellipark, and were almost at the end of their rated lifespan... I'll try to fix that with wdidle3 at some point, but next time around I won't go with Greens. I'll go with Reds.

yeah i plan on putting together a 8x4TB NAS, those would be a nice fit... my 8x1TB hardware RAID5 is still chugging along, but i am getting a few more errors from those old seagate 7200.11's than I'd like...

No, i'd probably be going for a QNAP or Synology box.
