Should i split up my hard drive purchases
Getting ready to populate an 8 bay Qnap. Looking at either WD gold or Red Pro drives. Is it worth it for me to buy these in batches from different outlets? 8 different purchases….2×4 different purchases…4×2 different purchases?
(I guess I would get a spare as well)
Prices are pretty consistent up here from a few different vendors, so I wouldn’t be saving money or spending more, except maybe shipping, but is it a concern to buy everything at once? I know the theory, but I’m assuming if I bought a fully stocked raid from Qnap, it would all have 1 big batch of drives in it. (As I’m sure my pegassys does right now).
