Current config
4 each 500 Gig Maxtor drives in a RAID 1-0

Drives are hosting Hyper-V images

Would like to replace the 4 drives with two 1 TB or larger drives now as a raid 1
and then add two more drives in the future to rebuild the raid as a 1-0.

I know It will be a complete data/raid rebuild for both steps

I am looking at the WD Black and the WD Red NAS drives

What would be the best drive to use, red or black?

Server has no more than 5 users hitting it at a time but hosts 4 Hyper-V guests
