  1. WD Black vs Gold

    Hey guys, Should I pick WD Black or Gold for my new build? They both cost the same here.

  3. As the title says. How are the Ironwolf disks? I've always went with WD myself mostly because of brand loyalty, but my main HDD has been a 2TB Seagate drive for a while now and I've never had problems with it. The Ironwolfs are a little cheaper compared to the WD Reds (only ~15 euros however though). I've come across some stories about Seagate drives and failures, but I'm not sure how much of that to believe. Which one would you get?
  4. Hi Guys. ive been running Unraid for a couple of years on my Zotac motherboard, with a mix of 1.5 and 2TB disks, ofcause with a lovely 2TB disk as parity. Anyhow, im in the unfortunate situation that a 2TB ST2000DM001 has died, and im now on the lookout for a replacement. Since the prices of 2TB disks dont really make sense, ive been considering starting to grow my array over time with 4 or 6TB disks (im at 10TB used and growing... video Library... yaaay), but i am unsure if my motherboard supports disks larger than 2 TB. Anyone have any insights to the wierdness that is an Atom Based NM10 chipset running on a DTX board :-)
  5. Currently, a X300 5TB hard drive costs $151 at Micro Center and I'm totally tempted to get it, plus I can reach a MC store via transit. Based on experience, the 1TB Toshiba laptop hard drive inside my PS3 is still alive and reliable after a year, but when it comes to desktop hard drives, people like it and don't. Currently, my PC just needs an archive HD, nothing too fancy. Anyone have input with this series of internal hard drives??

  7. Freenas 3x6TB WD Reds?

    Hi I need abit of help. Im planning my freenas build... I think im going to use 3x6TB WD REDs in RaidZ1 would this be ok considering there 6TB in RaidZ1? I dont know how well RaidZ1 works with 6TB Drives? Also Would i be able to use 4x6TB RaidZ1? I dont see the point in using 4x6TB RaidZ2 so i thought 3x6TB RaidZ1 made more sense.

  11. Holy batman Seagate! A 6TB has been pre-announced at Las Vegas, I think their highest corresponding drive was capped at 4TB I think, so a 50% increase in capacity is pretty good. Pricing isn't available yet though! Source: http://theregister.co.uk/2014/04/07/seagates_six_bytes_of_terror/
