  1. I am building a WHS box and I need to choose which HDD's to go with. I've been reading the reviews of the "green" drives here on and I don't know which of them to go with. I have my eyes on these 3 drives: Seagate Barracuda LP 2TB Western Digital WD20EARS 2TB Samsung F3EG 2TB I have read the reviews of the WD20EARS and F3EG, still waiting on the review for the Seagate LP and don't know which one of them to choose. Right now I am leaning towards the WD20EARS because of the Advance Format and thus being able to cram more space out of the drive. I've read that the Seagate drive only has a load/unload rating of 50.000 cycles while the others are rated at 300.000 cycles, furthermore I believe the Seagate drive use an older form of head-parking - however the seagate drive seems to be the fastest drive of the three. A little side question, is WHS capable of handling 4k sectors without problems? Because if it doesn't that would count against the WD20EARS. Please let me know what you guys think

    Best drive for WHS box

    I just read that Samsung is coming out with a F4EG with 667GB platters and a speed of only 4300RPM, which should be good for power usage aswell i would imagine. Unfortunately I can't seem to source one here in Denmark.
