Can I use Audio Visual Drives as an OS disk?
Mar 29, 2012, 9:27 PM
I recently picked up some drives for a good price and i was wondering if i can use them as my main OS drive.
They are supposed to be for video recording.
Western Digital RE2 WD4000YS 400GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive
Western Digital RE2 400GB 7200 RPM SATA 1.5Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive
I did notice that they are rated near 400 by passmark.
Usually I like to use drives above 700 for the main drive
Is there any other reason besides slower speed, not to use these drives?
