The Mini is recommended for those wishing to make use of the flexibility and features available with FreeNAS, but potential buyers should be wary of some of the usability issues that come along with that.

The WD Se drives you tested use emulated sector size, like the WD Red. Does NanoBSD (basis of FreeNAS) correctly prep the 4K geometry now, or does it still require the extra step of gnop & ashift

The WD Reds are shipped with pre-configured systems, so I'm assuming they designed around that.

Did you configure in RAID-Z, or plain RAID-10?
