My System Specs

Yeah I did. I have one set of the older WD20EARS which was simple, but my other set is the newer WD20EADS which had to be flashed to a different firmware to enable TLER.

No problems so far and they are very quiet, but I only get sustained transfer speeds of ~65MB/s in RAID1. I've been reading the WHS2011 forums and I've read a lot about people losing their whole raid5/raid 6 arrays after updates, reboots, power surges etc... and it has me scared. I'm now thinking about going with seagate barracuda 3TB drives in RAID1. A colossal waste, but safe.
