I run a notebook (Dell Vostro 1400) with Ubuntu 10.04.
I have a large amount of data and have this on a number of smaller external (USB) drives.
I recently came across the Icy Dock external hard drive boxes that can take multiple drives (specifically the MBB662US-2S).
I am considering two 1.5 or 2.0 terabyte drives, either Western Digital (Green or Black Caviar) or Samsung Spinpoint F3 or F4.
I am aware of the 4K per sector problem, but it seems that both WD and Samsung offer drives that also use 512b per sector so that this should not be a problem.
Can anyone give any recommendations regarding the hard drives and any experience with the Icy Dock.
As this is a rather expensive set up to buy, I would like some degree of certainty that it will actually work
Thanks in advance.
