Eco/Green drives in RAID?
I'm building my first RAID10 box and have heard from friends that the Eco/Green drives can cause problems. Is this something to be concerned about?
What about Samsung? I'm currently looking at:
Honestly amigo, you sould simply set the RAID to 0, and focus on speed. Get only 2 drives and get also a external drive for backup. If you can afford, make a 4x RAID 0. Drives with fast response times, aka RAID edition drives, are more expensive and therfore its best to get a external drive. In addition, RAID is a terrible backup solution. If your drive fails, the array needs to be rebuild before you can check your data, and in the mean time, another drive may fail.
