      Good hard drives for my RAID setup

      I have an OWC ThunderBay 4 RAID unit running RAID 10 (1+0), and it uses SoftRAID to manage it. I previously had 4 Toshiba 3 TB NAS/Enterprise drives installed but I needed more space. I ordered 4 of these and then used SoftRAID to verify and certify them. 2 of the 4 drives had reallocated sectors indicating the potential for premature drive failure. According to SoftRAID drives with bad sectors are 40 times more likely to fail than those without. Anyways, I took the defective drives back to Best Buy and exchanged them for new ones (which had to be reordered, obviously). Now I have 4 perfect drives that all work great, but given that it took 6 drives to get 4 good ones, doesn’t reflect very good quality control on Western Digital’s part. The other thing is that these run significantly louder than my old drives. I am honestly disappointed, and in hindsight wish I would’ve gone with another brand or option. I’ve only had these running for a couple weeks now, and everything’s finally working, so that’s good. The thing I will say is Best Buy’s customer service was excellent in handling this. Hopefully these last a while, like they are supposed to. I wouldn’t recommend buying these, but I would recommend getting something else from Best Buy as they are great and stand behind the products they sell, and will make it right if you have problems.
