I do intend to implement raid at some point. I want to build a high quality, 1080p media collection. I don't know if I will be going Raid 0 + 1 or Raid 5, I am leaning towards Raid 5
I am not looking at blacks because I don't care too much about transfer rate and speed, I am considering Reds because I have read that Greens don't fare too well in a RAID/NAS environment.
Longevity is my primary concern
on amazon a 3 TB green is about 140 while a red is about 190, is the premium price worth it?
