    Well, I was just wondering about RAID rebuild times with this one. Keeping Seagate reliability in mind, I wonder if RAID Z3 level will be a new standard now.

    Seagate makes some of the most reliable HDD's in the industry! Highly recommended IMO.

    Wow, I didn't expect to hear about 8tb's for quite a while. How many platters in them? Long live the HDD! :)

    Basically it allows three drives to fail before the array fails but it's implemented at a software level in the filesystem itself.

    8TB man they keep getting bigger and bigger. If I had tons of money I would purchase 4 of these and put them into an NAS and rip my entire dvd library to it.

    We're going to have 1 Petabyte HDDs and we'll laugh at these tiny drives one day.
