Media Server Build (UK) - Page 2

post #11 of 32
A small drive for OS and a couple big ones to store your media in RAID1 for protection. They don't need to be ultra fast, just reliable HDDs. Seagate are the best imho.

Now Hard Drives, what sort of specs should i be looking at?
I would go for WD drives. They seem to be the most reliable from my experience.

EDIT: Lol, seagate or WD would be good. I had to RMA my sig seagate drive though, and I have an old 40gb that is now clicking . My 60gb and 200gb WD drives are still fine.

Check out the WD Green Power Drives. Use a sip of power and are cooler quieter and potentially more reliable -

For the smaller drive, yes, to the bigger drives, either 16 or 32MB (1TB drives usually have 32MB)

Looking great. You might want to consider a 2nd 750GB Drive. Will you get a SFF case or a mini tower?
