samsung f4 2tb good drives for a storage server?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I saw the deal in my email about the f4 2tbs was 79$ from 99$ so i was wondering how reliable are they and will they be good for a storage server? Im planing on running 2 of them in raid 1 for now and add 2 more maybe next month.

I usely always go with wd because i never had one of their drives fail on me once and i was looking at the 2tb wd green drive at first but with the f4s i would save like 40$ if i go with them.

They pretty much gonna be running in my 939 socket with a opteron 165 at 3ghzs 4gb of ram and ony will get used as a storage server and a music streamer which is gonna run 24/7 and i want a reliable drive.


Oh right now my 939 socket is running 2x 160 wds in raid 0 and im gonna keep using throes as boot drive sense i also herd windows 7 don't see over 2tbs as a boot drive? And for the speed the 160s gives they are pretty fast.

I have the 1TB and it's perfomeing to spec so far.. I plan on picking up a second to duplex them in RAID 1 and an SSD for my OS, shrug. I might get the 2TB if it's that cheap though. They are supose to be just as fast as the caviar blacks.

I just ordered 2 of the f4s Hopefully they treat me well like my wds are doing.

Also ordered NETGEAR WNR3500L which was 15$ off for the 48hour sale needed a new router that is powerful enough too copy stuff over my home network and do what ever on the internet


So finally i could backup all my important stuff Well not everything sense i have like 4 tbs and a 500gb external on my main system but think i have like 3tb too 4tb of data but steam is mostly taking all of that and other games, Mainly gonna backup my movies and stuff i downloaded. I already have 2x 1tbs wd blacks in raid 1 so the data on those is safe, mainly just have too get the files off the 2x1tbs blacks that are in raid 0.
