Reviews

from completed build My First Build

Cheap and silent mass storage. I use it for all my pictures, videos, etc. as well as storing any games I'm not currently playing. Fantastic in tandem with my ssd to get the best of both worlds.

from completed build Cor Caeruleus

Using them at home for the server's hot-swap backup and thought I should use one in my main machine as well.

Already had the 5 x 1TB WD Green from my Old Box. So dropping them into this Box for ZoL (ZFS on Linux) in a raidz configuration was a given. Did have to set a variable in /etc/modprobe.d/zfs.conf to limit ZFS to only use a Max of 4G of ram so it didn't try to use 12G. YES, honestly ZFS defaults to trying to utilize 75 percent of the over all System Memory. I LOVE me some ZFS, but even true Love has LIMITS !! These 5 drives have all been running 24x7 since FEB of 2009 !!
