What 2TB Drives is everyone using these days? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 3 WD20EADS and 2 WD20EVDS drives - all are NOT "Advanced Format".  Can't seem to locate any of these - or anything else that is not Advanced Format - so wondering what others are using for 2TB drives?  I've read some posts on the Advanced Format - saying you have to jumper them - but I also read that I may need to run the 'WD Align" utility.  The WD page on this discusses doing this for "older operating systems" but only mentions XP - but it would seem that I'd need to do this for WHS?

    Do these drives (such as the WD20EARS/EARX or WD20EURS) work "normally" with the jumpering done?

    I've been partial to WD drives as I've had great luck with them...I've read/heard some horror stories about others...but would be interested to hear what's being used lately since the older ones appear to be history.

  • I imagine many purchases are currently on hold given the sharp increase in prices due to the floods in Thailand.
