I'm planing to build a little linux homeserver. It will mainly be used for storage and maybe as an media pc.
I plan to build a software raid5 with 4 1.5TB or 2TB hard drives.
I already decided to use the Western Digital Caviar Green 1.5 TB drive,
but then I read about some problems with the WD green series about many drives failing and that they are not recommended for raid anyway.
Of course, I couldn't find much facts on the issues so I thought I just ask here ;-)
What hard drives would you recommended for a software raid5 setup?
As I only need it for storage, the whole thing doesn't have to be too fast. So I prefer a cheap price and silence to great performance.
