NAS/Server Hard Drive?

Last response: in Storage

I've had my sights on a FreeNAS build for quite some time now and have finally gotten the money. I was wondering what hard drive I should go with though. I only really plan to store Videos/Backups and will not be having it to constant transfers but I will have it on 24/7. I only have about $150 for the drives in total and was considering a WD Red drive. Is this a bad decision? I could get two Blue drives for the same price. Thanks for the help!


*Note I would be using RAID if I were to get more than one drive

I'm assuming this will be a zfs build (and raid) so really any drive will do but do try to choose quality drives and not one with crap for reviews.
