    Proper Vdev and Zpool configuration.

    Like I stated before. For a home system it is most cost effective to stick with 1 vdev for a system with 10 disks or less. If you need more performance from your pool you gain much more from adding an SSD for cache than you would doing multiple vdevs and eating up usable space.

    Proper Vdev and Zpool configuration.

    If 1 disk fails from either or both RAIDz1 vdev then you would have no data loss. If a 3rd disk fails on either vdev after that point then you would have data loss. However, keep in mind if 2 disks fail on either vdev you would have data loss. I don't think there are plugins for...

    Proper Vdev and Zpool configuration.

    I'm running something similar. I'd suggest plex/nzbget/nzbdrone though. Yes there is a difference. Any RAIDz1 option will only have single parity, RAIDz2 has double, so you can lose 2 disks before data loss. With 2x RAIDz1 vdevs you can technically lose 2 disks before data loss,but thats a...

    Proper Vdev and Zpool configuration.

    There is actually some best practice logic behind deciding the number of disks in a vdev more than just what your storage and IO needs are. Use "power of two plus parity" rule to determine the optimal vdev configuration. with RAIDz1 you would want 3,5, or 9 disks per vdev. With RAIDz2 use...

    1440p screen for graphic and web design. Any suggestions?

    Why not go 4K? Monoprice has a really nice inexpensive panel. I picked up one of these for work last week and it looks fantastic.

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    In context my statement makes sense. I don't need higher PPI, I want a larger screen at the same PPI (which would obviously lead to higher rez).

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    Well I actually don't need more rez....I'd like a larger display but I want to keep the same or similar PPI.

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    So this thing will never be able to do native rez@60Hz then? Seems like it would be silly to buy a monitor that doesn't do everything properly at its native rez. I currently have 3 Korean IPS panels with no scalar, and am looking to slim that down to 1 4K monitor for gaming/center ladscape...

    Seiki SE50UY04 3840x2160 50" TV ($1300)

    So whats the deal with the 39" TV? What are the downsides of me running one over my existing Korean IPS panel?

    How is this thing for Gaming? Also how does it stack up against the Korean LG IPS panels?

    I just replaced 8 of mine for $145. I'd consider that reasonable.

    Yeah, I also need to have my father in law come in and drop a 30A outlet for me. I'd do it but my main box is completely full and needs to be replaced, or added on to.

    Got a rack from a buddy for $50. Full Album

    Thats the reason I brought it up. I would estimate between $400-$500 a month if you run all that 24/7. Every piece of equipment in that rack is very very power hungry.

    I don't understand your setup at all. Since you are already virtualizing why do you have physical pfsense boxes? Also You could build 1 host (or 2 for redundancy) to replace all that old hardware and still have more performance than all that combined. It would pay for itself in power consumption...
