comment Cheaper alternative to ZFS Storage for a home NAS
Do you already own the drives, or are you investing in an entirely new system? ZFS might not be the best choice if you have a range of HDDs of different sizes. If buying a completely new system, the cost of 8-10 HDDs dwarfs the cost of the other components. With 6 * 3 TB in RAID-Z2, I opted for: i3 4130, 16 GB ECC, and without L2ARC. It maxes out gigabit ethernet, and cost about 1000 GBP including HDDs.

comment How do Fusion Drive's on Mac's really work?
How do you accurately report on reliability? I've heard of entire drives failing, normally due to h/w or s/w issues rather than the flash itself. There's some old-ish data here. Who is suffering SSD block corruption - do you have a link for that? Here's how Fusion compares to an SSD and an HDD. Not surprisingly, it's in the middle.
