5 out of 5 eggs Nearline SAS alternative to Enterprise SATA 06/11/2013

This review is from: Seagate Constellation ES.2 ST32000645SS 2TB 64MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros:

SAS! Nearline SAS for the price of enterprise SATA. These are not full-blown server drives but it's a definite step up from the already higher-quality enterprise SATA. A good way to get a higher quality economical drive.

Cons:

None that I've noted.

Other Thoughts:

These drives let you buy reasonable SAS hardware for your fancy RAID controller. You don't want to use retail office-PC drives for pro storage. For use with RAID controllers you want drives that quickly return error codes upstream, rather than, say, an office drive that might just try to read the sector forever. Going SAS puts you in the pro level. These nearline-SAS drives are an entry-level excellent compromise on speed, power, and quality. And did I mention they are SAS?! Yay!
