[QUOTE=BonzTM;2603405]Actually that’s what it used to be, and RAID0/JBOD or some form of spanning would make it look like 4TB, not RAID1. RAID1 is a mirror.
But this time, these are single 4TB drives. With both Seagate and Hitachi announcing 1TB per platter, they are able to pack up to 5TB on a single drive now. Soon you will be seeing 5TB drives, but they want to milk it and release 4TB drives first.[/QUOTE]
Raid 0 ;).
Typing on a tab could be easier, and more accurate, methinks, and proof reading is such a drag
If they are a single 4 TB drive, it’s be interesting to see how many platters these drives have, and get reliability data on them.
Spinning 5 platters couldn’t be too energy efficient, although more efficient than twin spindles.
