    Raid Sata 3 Hard Drive Brand and Capacity Recommendations

    Rowby Goren Level 1



      Please see this Discussion.




      I am starting this new thread to focus on hard drive recommendtions for Raid SATA3 drives.


      I am modifying my editing computer and will be switching completely from SATA2 drives to SATA3 drives.  I will no longer be using my "old" SATA2 drives in this system.


      I will be using them with an Areca ARC-1880ixl-12.


      I am looking for both brand and model recomendations as well as capacity of each drive.'


      I currently use 500GB drives, and am wondering if there is any overall speed advantage of increasing to 1000GB drives.


      And suggestions and comments will be appreciated.
