Raid 5/6 Quick question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Having say 2x2TB WD Green and 2x2TB Samsung Spinpoint F4's will this work in Raid 5/6 and will there be any speed diferences if they we're all Spinpoints compared to 2 types drives?

Cheers.

yes, they will work.
the speed of the whole array will be limited to the slowest drive.

I don't know the specs of those drives. but if the Samsung's are slower than the WD's , then the WD's will be slowed down by the Samsung's, and vice versa. your whole array is only as fast as your slowest drive.
