I previously had 3 Seagate Barracuda's 7200.11 1TB's and 2 died on me in a matter of a week. I know when I built my first machine about 5 or so years ago I had a 7200.11 1TB, and that series was known for having issues. I didn't buy the 1.5TB's they were free leftover's from my fathers networking business, used in an external bay. I put 2 in my machine for RAID1. So I'm squeeking by on 1 HDD right now.
I'm looking for a nice hard drive for RAID1 pairing? Any recommendations?
Not looking to pay over 150 for a single HDD. 1TB Could do the trick as well. Just for general purpose storage nothing fancy.
