My System Specs


Yeah, I have a lot of Green 1.5TB and 2TB drives (32M), and don't see myself replacing them with the 3TB drives til they come down to the $150 mark.. more in line with the $$/GB figures the other drives have - and they play nicer with some operating systems.
It is tempting to buy two of them to replace three of my 2TB drives, especially in more space-constrained file servers.

I find it funny that if you buy 4 of these drives, you're going to have 4x 2 channel controllers also - seems like a waste. It also would eat up a lot of PCIe slots putting a lot of these drives in one computer system - but I don't believe that's what they are intended for.

I'll learn to manage my anger, when people learn to manage their stupid.
