Toshiba/HGST Drive questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey there,

I just bought 4 2TB drives from Microcenter to put into RAID 5 for a home/media server. Drives are here - 2TB Toshiba drives that are supposedly rebrands of the Hitachi 7k3000. One of mine literally had the Hitachi sticker still on it, which showed a firmware of MX4OAAB0, while the Toshiba brand ones had firmwares of MX4OABB0. I'm wondering if these will play well in the RAID array, and if theres a difference in these two firmwares?

Thanks!
