    Mix 7200RPM and 5900RPM

    About my experience with (3TB) ST3000DM001 disks, these ones had the firmware CC43. I tried to recovery the disk with Seagate's tools, but I couldn't complete any of tests. The SMART features didn't work. One interesting thing was that the disks under Mac or Windows show a capacity of 4.14TB! (when it should be 3TB!) According to Seagate support team, the firmware couldn't be updated, and the only solution was return the disks.

    That's is a good idea... But I don't want to lose more space. With two RAID-1, I will lose the capacity of two drives. With one RAID-5, I will lose only one drive. I just need to replace a ST3000DM001 disk on my RAID-5. I use my NAS for media, backup and other personal things. My video collection is more than 4TB. By the way, Synology device makes an excellent job to handle media. -

    Thanks for the both answers! Now... One more question. What about the "Seagate SV35 3TB 7200RPM SATA 6-Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive for Video Surveillance ST3000VX000"? It would be better than the NAS models? It is 7,200 RPM. Thanks!

    Mix 7200RPM and 5900RPM

    Dear friends.. I have to replace one drive ST3000DM001 , so I'm thinking about to get one ST3000VN000 (5900 RPM) or one ST3000VX000. I don't have to buy more ST3000DM001 since I have had issues with those drives. One more question: What can of problem could have if I mix hard drives with different RPM (5900 and 7200) under a RAID-5? (I have a DS413j) TWO -> - 7200 RPM = Seagate Barracuda 3 TB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 7200 RPM 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive ST3000DM001 ONE -> - 5900 RPM = Seagate NAS HDD 3TB SATA 6GB NCQ 64 MB Cache Bare Drive ST3000VN000 Thanks for your posts.
