I'm interested in your experiences, good or bad, with either the WD Red drives, Seagate SV35 and Seagate NAS HDD
The WD is rated for home / SOHO NAS use and 24/7. It is a 5400rpm unit.
The Seagate is a 24/7 "Surveillance Video" drive, running 7200rpm.
The Seagate NAS HDD is a 24/7, running 5900 RPM
Which one do you prefer for VMware lab ? (? 7200vs5400vs5900 ?)
* home storage (MS AD)
* ISCSI - FreeNAS
* other vm's
Seagate SV35.6 [ST3000VX000]
WD Red [5400 RPM]
Seagate HDD NAS [ST3000VN000] 5900 RPM
Or Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001
Then i have several question's
1. What about electronic ?
2. Firmware ?
3. Failure ?
Cheers and im waiting for your help because im confused and i dont know what i should to do with HDD....
