I am going to build a new rig soon and have been looking at cases. I've noticed that more and more manufacturers are reducing the 3.5" bays and increasing the 2.5" bays. So I was thinking of replacing my three 1TB drives with 1 or 2 3TB drives of the 2.5" flavor. After doing some quick research it seems only Seagate makes > 1TB 2.5" drives. What's up with that? I've never had good luck with Seagate drives so that isn't an option for me. Anyone else seen WD or HGST (or Toshiba) 2.5" drives in the 2TB to 4TB range? Or is using laptop drives in a desktop system a bad idea? The system will be "on" pretty much 24/7 but set to sleep when not active.
