Not really. The 3 GB/s SATA speed is much faster than the raw drive speed. The reason for the higher price is that these are enterprise (server) class drives, not desktop drives.boblam wrote:It looks like the one that I have seen in the performance testing is (but cost substantially more) is:
Seagate Constellation ES 2 TB 7200 RPM SATA 3 GB/s 64 MB Cache 3.5-Inch Hard Drive - ST32000644NS ($290)
but it would seem like this should be slower based on 3 GB/s
I think you found them. Green drives will be somewhat slower than the 7200 rpm drives (10% is a number frequently cited here). Also check the HCL, since Netgear support is limited if get drives that are not on their list.boblam wrote:Any thoughts on a fast 2 TB drive that works with Ultra 4 Plus?
Someplace that will let you exchange them in a 30 day window for new drives if one fails. Amazon or Newegg both have this policy. Manufacturer replacements are refurbished, so it is best to have a retailer that has a good replacement policy.boblam wrote:Any advice on where to purchase this device / drives?
