I currently have 8 X 8TB in a RAID 6. I have 4 more in the mail coming tomorrow which I will likely rebuild into a single ZFS2 or ZFS3 array. which will give me ~70TB usable. I hope to not need to rebuild ever but if it happens it happens.

It's only tough with RAID 5 where you can't handle another failure and the longggggggg rebuild time.

I have had to rebuild the same RAID5 array multiple times over the 8 years. 2 drive deaths. 2 growths (swap out one drive per rebuild, then grow). Spinning rust dies, eventually. The stress happens when you power down, spin up, and rebuild with already old drives.

I'm running a PR4100 with 4x8 TB running RAID 5. What's scarier is running without RAID. If a drive crashes and I replace it, it will rebuild in background. It'll take some time but it will get there. It's been running for a year plus without a hiccough.

They are WD Red Pro. Closer to enterprise rated drives. Not enterprise exactly. No one really knows as WD still owns HGST. HGST has its own enterprise class drives. Both still good and you should mix and match drives in one array to play probability of failure game. You want drives to fail but not all at same time.
