WD Ultrastar 14TB compare to WD Red PRO 10TB?


Post by lindsay »

The only i can see and nice to have is S.M.A.R.T wich Ultrastar is missing.
Though you get 4TB but cost a little bit more.
Compare to having 12 hdd`s in zfs mirrors you get 24TB more space.

Advantage/disadvantage to choose Ultrastar/PRO.?
