    I have a micro server on an imbedded VIA ITX board ,with a pair of the old WD green drives in mdraid 1. The old VIA chipset supports SATA1 only, so no need for speedy drives. I am down to one, and the warranty is gone.
    I looked at the current deals. I can get:
    WD RE4 for 100 each

    Go cheap with Hitachi @ 60

    Or go with a pair of lappy drives for low power use. The box is very frugal with the juice, and the lappy drives do have some merit for that. 80 bucks.

    Laptop drives sold out. I'm going with the hitachi drives.
