Great with some S.M.A.R.T issues 06/06/2013
I bought 2 of 4TB Seagate HDs, configure as RAID1 with HighPoint RocketRaid 640L in my NAS server, performance is really good. 80-100mb/s over 1Gbps network. 100-130mb/s over USB 3.0. The bottle neck is data route, not hard drive itself. Very satisfied with it.
Running hot with long time backup, 114+ Fahrenheit. with Highpoint Web monitoring Tools, I got S.M.A.R.T errors from time to time. Hard Disk Sentinel shows all OK. that makes me worrying and confused. searching articles regarding those failed S.M.A.R.T features. it seems not a real error or failure of Hard Drive itself. just Seagate Unique Way of SMART reporting, not happened with other manufactures such as WD or Hitachi hard drives. --- well, I'll keep my fingers crossed
Hard Disk Sentinel is only tool I found that can detect and report SMART with RAID confriguration.
