But for unraid servers, they spin down the drives when not in use and spin up when in use.exrcoupe wrote: ↑Mar 23rd, 2014 5:48 pmSee that quote.
The WD Green drives are designed to constantly park the head and spin down for lower power consumption. Media server requirements need the drive to be constantly ready, instead of spinning up and down. The more the drive cycles, the increased wear it will have, thereby decreasing it's life. As well, you will have lag as you wait for the drive to spin up to read your media files. I've already experienced this with my old server drives spinning down and then having to wait 3-5 seconds as they spin up to read the file directory - and these were the WD black drives.
