using 2 of them for soft raid0, so far is stable, for big files, it seems good, but for small ones, it responds slowly, anyway, so far, seems worth the value, worried, if they can work for 24hx7, last 2 years
I figured that it was time to explore 4T drives as the price was good. As my data increases, I still have to fit backup drives into my safety deposit box. Later i will use these drives as part of my storage system at home. I use Snapraid for redundancy. Flexraid and Unraid are other parity redundancy solutions. I'll try to find time to explain under questions, below.
My disks lead an easy life (these will just have to sit..). I would be worried using these cheapest 4T disks in a striped raid array in constant use. the disks not the data are warrantied..
My average transfer rate is about 100MB/s. Multiple file transfers it drops down to 30MB/s. I have no complaints so far. So far it is consistently running about 4 days straight a week before a shutdown over night. I am running it on my home server.
One of my older hitachi 2tb drives was failing so I picked up one of these. I want to say the price was a "con" but it seems like the market right now is $170 - 4tb (some higher end 3tb's too), $130 -3tb, $90 for fast 1tb's and $60 for the cheapest on sale- so it seems the price roughly $40 per 1tb platter after the first. Anyway, I easily combined two 2tb's and had some space and was able to organize a bit. I guess there is a power savings with more capacity if eliminating/downsizing. Seems fairly fast. No complaints.
