WTF DRIVES TO USE FOR RAID NOW?

Seriously.

WD disables TLER, haven't touched Seagate with a 10 foot pole after they disabled AAM, Samsungs run burning hot (I'm not referring to drive temp, I'm referring to temp on certain chips on the PCB). Hitachis were the last consumer friendly RAID drives. Unless there is something no one is telling me.

A lack of competition usually results in mediocre products and services as these corporations get bigger and bigger, instead of better.

And I've heard nothing but good about them >.< Demmit what drive am I going to use for my file server! Oh and you still looking for that 775 board? I might have either a brand new gigabyte p45 or a evga 680i (I loved this motherboard like a child lol, was the most expensive part of my first ever build)

Keep believing that, whilist the WD drives with triangle PCB's have the tvs diode flaws.

Overall market quality will go down. Lose - lose.

My System Specs

Default Hitachi drives stink anyways

Well, i've got a Seagate Ultra ATA IV from '02, and still running on strong, the Hitachi travelstar in my inspiron notebook is getting ever and ever slower with every turn on, though it's not making any failure noises. Right now i run a WD black 500 gig (almost full) in my current rig, along side my ultra ATA but that travelstar ain't going in this machine, not permanently anyways.

P.S. I don't RAID, so RAID capability isn't a concern to me.
