It maybe a big price if it fails with in a few months.

Yeah, but 2TB hard drives are about $50. so $25 per TB. sure, I realize that’s a lot more convenient and all though to have a single 14TB instead of like seven 2TB drives.

but anyways, 14TB would be great but if that drive fails it would suck. also, 250MB/s transfer rate is less then I would have guessed considering my 5TB HGST does in the ball park of 180MB/s and is almost 1/3rd of the storage space. so basically 14TB hard drives still don’t max out the SATA II connection.
