  1. Hi, I really like your write-ups, I like your DROBO5D write-up and did not know how to contact you to ask "you recommend the seagate drives over the WD Green Drives" at about same price? Also the seagate drives, do you find them noisy in Drobo box? or run hot? Seem like you bought five 3TB then upgrade to also seagate 4TB so you must prefer them. You have write-up on Seagate vs. WD for Drobo? or NAS? I have old Drobo 4bay running 4 3TB WD Green, as I upgrade to new 5D not sure if I stick with WD or go same Seagate as you. Can you share your insights? My email is Thanks so much

    1. I stuck with Seagate because of price. They're always on sale. Also, they come in 7200 rpm flavours. The WD Green are 5900 rpm and I've had bad luck with them. Thats just me.
