Thought I would ask before I splash the cash. I have the following
4 x 1tb Samsung Spinpoint 7200rpm drives
Use Drobo for storing rips of my CD’s and DVD’s only, basically an iTunes dumping ground (I rip direct to other drives, and simply copy to Drobo, so usage is far from intensive )
I am about 2Tb used now, so want to upgrade drives to 2tb’s. For the prices around at the moment, I am looking at upgrading to 4 x 2tb Samsung ECOGREEN drives, but they are 5400rpm.
Am I ok to “assume” the drop of speed is not important given my usage, i.e. low intensitiy?
