Selecting fast 2TB disk Tags: Hard Drives Performance SATA NAS / RAID Storage Product Last response: January 13, 2013 1:21 AM in Storage Share ricno January 9, 2013 9:59:57 AM I would like some advice on selecting a SATA disk for a NAS. I will buy at least two, but maybe four, I have not decided the NAS type yet. 2TB should be a suitable size and with good performance. Could you recommend some disk type?

Could you give some motivation for the WD?
