mdadm with 1TB (1 terabyte) or more hard drives
I want to build a new server or at the very least get some new drives. I would like to have at least 1TB drives and use RAID 1. However, in the past with just 500GB drives I had some problems getting them to sync. I sent the problematic drive back to WD and they mentioned that it wasn't designed for RAID use and because of it's size it may have difficulty syncing.
I have looked at both the enterprise drives ($$$) and regular drives ($$). I only can really afford the regular drives right now, but I could wait.
My question: Will regular drives work ok? I mean it is Redundant Array of INEXPENSIVE Disks, right?
What advice can you offer?
