Looking for several 3TB drives.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Currently in the market to upgrade my storage a bit and decided to go from 1TB ( *15 ) to 3TB drives.

Just wondering which drives on the market are currently doing the best all around? Mainly just in lifespan and DOA rate as to avoid any extra hassle, access rate and overall speed isn't much of an issue for me.

Are you running those drives in a RAID array of some sort? If so, TLER might be important to prevent drop outs with that many drives. Or, are you looking to consolidate that 15TB of 1TB drives into 15TB worth of 3TB drives?

I've been pretty happy with the Hitachi 7K4000 series 4TB Deskstar line. I've got 4 of them in RAID 5 on a VMware host with an LSI 9266-8i controller. No drops and great performance for 4+ months now.
