After doing some research and asking some friends, I am assembling a video & audio network to hold all my digital files. Instead of buying an expensive dedicated NAS, I will use a desktop I have that I do not use, housed on a smaller case that can hold up to six 3.5" HDDs. So my question is which HDDs you recommend to use. As the total size will probably be close to 30TB, large HDDs are essential. 8TB is the minimum size I'm thinking of. I've been looking at some WD and Seagate large size HDDs that do seem affordable. In the long time I guess I will go to SSDs, but that is unthinkable at the moment. So what disk brand and type would you use or recommend?
