Can I RAID These 2 Barracudas???

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a spare Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 320gb. Can I RAID this hd with a Seagate 7200.12 320gb?

The only difference in the specs are the following:

WEIGHT:

7200.10 320gb = 635g
7200.12 320gb = 320g

RANDOM WRITE SEEK TIME:

7200.10 320gb = <10.0ms
7200.12 320gb = <9.5ms

POWER_Max Start Current, DC:

7200.10 320gb - 2.80
7200.12 320gb - 2.0

RELEASED DATE:

7200.10 320gb - 2006/7
7200.12 320gb - 2008/10

So what's the verdict...Can I RAID these two HDs together?

If they've got the same spindle speed, size, and cache then you can RAID them together fine. Those seem to just be different revisions of the same drive, so they'll most likely run fine.

You can RAID together two different HDD's even if they had different capacities, etc. You would just be limited to the speed/capacity of the lesser drive.

agreed with both statments.... when i run raid setups.... i normaly try and get the hdd's in diffrent batches as well..... that way if the one batch was a bad batch you only need to sort out one hdd and not the lot.

i normaly run raid 1.0 or 5 or 5.0 depending on the application i am doing etc....
