Samsung 2.5" 2TB - M9T spinpont?

#1

I have 2 spare slots on my Supermicro chassis for 2 more 2.5" HDD. The best price/capacity is this:

I was wondering how bad/good this can be for NAS use if just kept it spun up 100% time since I'm using ZFS.

The specs from Samsung say it's MTBF is 550,000 hours. 600,000 load/unload cycles.

Would this drive last at least 3-4 years before dying?

The other cheap alternative is from WD, Red 2.5" 1TB, about $15 cheaper for 1TB less.

i doubt many people have any experience with 2.5 drives.

my best advice is: try it.

however maybe you can modify the case. what chassis is it?

CSE-SC836BA-920

Can't really mod it, it's space only allots 2.5" HDD in the hot swap area on the back. I already bought the hotswap bay so I might as well populate it.
