Good day,

I'm looking to put four Seagate Barracuda 3TB in a Mediasonic HFR2-SU3S2FW Proraid Enclosure for RAID 5.

Any issues with that? I've only ever used WD Blacks in that enclosure and I've been really happy with the result. WD's 2TB can't compare to the tests I've seen on these Barracudas however.
Any word out there of a WD 3TB?

Thoughts appreciated. Thank you.

Shouldn't be any problem compatibility wise. Main thing to look for with enclosures is the per drive max size. This one definitely does support 3TB per drive so you should be fine. Do make sure that whatever system you connect it to will be able to recognize the total size after raid though. Like the specs mention, you want to be >WinXP.

I personally wouldn't go with Seagate as I have had a few bad experiences with them, but I also heard that the line I had was prone to problems and it was limited to that line.
