Hi there,

I'm looking to get some 1.5 TB drives for a RAID set. So, with the NAS I use I am looking specifically for 1.5 TB Seagate Barracudas. Now, I see the AS model available but I can't find the ES model anywhere at the Canadian stores (or any stores). Where can I find it or is it just not available?

What would be the risks of using the "AS" Barracudas in a NAS which was actually specifically tested with those disks, inside a RAID-5 set?
It's the QNAP TS-509 Pro.

It would be a 5-disk RAID-5 array. The use would be pretty heavy since it's in a small office with about 10-15 graphics design workers.
