New disks for NAS
Posted 01 November 2012 - 10:19 AM
I am looking to build up a NAS server (thinking about getting the QNAP TS-669 Pro), but I also need some disks. I was going for the 5K4000 4TB disks, but they seem to not be available anymore. Then, I was thinking about getting the 5K3000 3TB disks or, alternatively, in order to get more disk space, the 7K4000 4TB disks.
I would, of course, like as much disk space as possible, with the least noise, heat and power consumption.
Also, there is the issue of disk compatibility with QNAP's servers.
What do you think?

I am aware that the extra speed from the 7K series is not going to get me much in terms of performance - and I would actually prefer a slower drive to keep down heat, noise and power consumption. It's just a shame that neither the Reds nor the 5Ks come as 4 TB drives..

Then I have to go home and order some disks, it seems
I live in the UK - do you guys know about some good websites to order from, or am I better off just doing a general search on google.co.uk?
