Which HDDs should I buy, for my nas?
Should it be:
- Hitachi Deskstar 7K2000 HDS722020ALA330 2 TB
- Samsung SpinPoint F3EG Desktop Class HD203WI 2 TB
- WD Caviar Green WD20EARS 2 TB
or should it be: Seagate Barracuda LP ST32000542AS 2 TB ???

I need 4 drives for my raid5 setup, and the nas are running 24/7/365
(I dont care, if the drives are noising, and the heat is not a problem)

I dont care if it is a 5.400 rpm drive or 7.200 rpm. :-)

If you don't care about power or noise go for the Hitachi. Otherwise I like the wd20ears as long as you can deal with the 4k sectors.

Why Raid5? what about zfs?
