I have had issues with qnap NAS devices repeatedly and i was told to pick a drive off of there HCL that was in the "enterprise drive" category.
After finding one i thought would perform well, a velociraptor (wdc wd1000chtz), i bought four and put them into the NAS. I have had to replace a few of these drives too and now i am being directed to WD Red drives.
my concern is, while the Red drives may be more reliable, they may not perform as well in the qnap. Any thoughts there?
the raptor spins at 10k rpm and the red drive has intellipower rpm. Do you experts think the performance will suffer with the slower red drives (WD10EFRX (Red NASware 3.0))? Thanks!!!
