    Hey everyone.

    Here's the deal.

    I got a deal on a 4TB NAS RED that will be replacing a 2TB Caviar Black.

    Thing is the benchmark.

    Which one would you keep?
    I already have one on my system and I really like it.
    But, after benchmarking it, i dunno what to do. Obviously, the Black has marginally better Write/Read performance when doing both tasks at the time.


    I still can cancel the purchase though.


    Thanks.

    I know, that's obvious.
    But, perf wise, aren't that different to be honest.
    The black has games and the red will have games.

    Why not keep both in your system? Otherwise, keep the red

    It sounds like you answered your own question.

    Yeah. I guess.
    Thing is, I didn't want to loose the perf. that the cavia black has untill I get the m.2
    Dunno, this was a pointless thread I think.
