Are you saying you've gotten one 3TB drive to be accepted into your RAID array? Don't open those drives until you have.
I have only read that allegedly the problems (except they still chirp) should be solved with the latest Seagate firmware and Qnap firmware 3.7. Hopefully that's true.Odom wrote:Thanks for your reply. I am very familiar with RAID, but I probably asked the question in a wrong way. What I meant with "known issues" I meant in relationship to these particular drives (these Seagates and the firmware).
Well as long as you understand that difference I'm satisfied. It's your data and your risk, so you decide how you want to spend the money between main storage and backup.I am aware of the difference between backup and hardware fault-tolerance (I also preach this ), but I lack the economic means to buy two QNAP NAS's with 6x 3TB drives (these babies are very expensive in Germany for an average consumer to buy) so I can have a full backup of everything.

Yes, as reported here and by others in the forum as well.Odom wrote:What do you mean by "chirp"? Making noises?
I love my Hitachi HDS722020ALA330 also. They have served me well for several years and are still working.If that's the case, I'll see it (or rather hear it) tonight, and if so I'll return them straight away. I have my NAS in the living room and with the Hitachi drives you hardly hear a thing. Let's wait and see
