Raid controller for 4 x 3tb disks
May 18, 2011, 11:24 AM
I've got 4 x Caviar Green 3tb hard disks. I'd like to put the four drives in JBOD and created a 12tb space. Any hint on which (cheap please!!) controller could I buy?
The host system is a Windows 7 64 bit machine with EFI bios.
Thanks in advance

raid controller disks

The Green drives have been a source of problems in the past. Instead of JBOD, I would suggest RAID 1 or RAID 0+1, but this would cut the total storage by half.

I solved my problem by creating a spanned disk - no problems so far! Storage dropped from 12tb to 10.9 - totally acceptable.
