Which HDD is best for level 1 RAID?

Recommended Posts

Which HDD is best for level 1 RAID? Is there any advantage to the RAID HDD over normal ones like there is with higher RAID levels or are the normal ones fine?

WD RED series.

They're enterprise server drives without the expensive business coverage waranty; and only like $20 more than normal!

 

Though if you're RAID1-ing them, get 2 different brands of the same size. It makes it less likely to lose all your data if your drive dies due to a fault, because only 1 will have said fault.

 

Grab a RED and a HITACHI or something. Keep in mind if speed is needed; you may wanna go a hitachi and a normal WD drive (blue or black) since red drives use INTELIPOWER (estimated to be 5200rpm) which is way slower than a black drive; say..
