Yes you can, but you would be better off with a 7200 spin speed drive or if your collection is not to big a SSD would be best.

This drive has a low spin speed meaning it will take longer to write (install) and read (load) any data.

average is 5 sec more
#5
10 MB less compared with a 7200 one. 125 MB vs 135MB
#6
Great for PS3 though.

Brexit and Black friday week price rises are mental. I purchased the 3tb RED (nas) version of this in Jan for the same price

It's been this price forever! No deal.

I have a pair of Seagate Barracuda 2TB 5400 drives in my NAS in a mirror. If one fails, can I put one of these in it's place, or will the speed mismatch cause a problem?

It will run at the slowest speed of the two

If they are in raid yes, in JBOD is different.

If these are still based on the venerable Hitach 5K3000 these are great drives.

That's the info I'm waiting for... How can we tell?

I so want to make my microserver into my first esxi/freenas box but I so do not want a mish-mash of drives...

Purchased QNAP 453A 4G last week now waiting for good offer on drives. Best I could find is WD recertified 2TB @45. Any better offers welcome :)

There's a lot of good about recerts for a NAS... You're building for resistance to failure so paying extra for new drives is extra not worth it right?

well anyway disks would be in RAID and assuming two disks in RAID failing at same time would be rather rare. Cost of reconditioned is almost 60% of new.

The last lot of Toshiba 5700rpm were just re-labeled Hitachi 5K3000's, I can't see them building a new drive and I recon there is a good chance these are still the same.

I had approx 10 of the Toshiba/Hitachi drives with 1000's hours on them and not one failure.
Have you put my BIOS on your microserver? It will enable you to have 5 SATA ports with AHCI, http://microserver.wikia.com

Your BIOS for my own freenas microserver BUT... is it simple enough for me to compare it to the original? I probably couldn't put it into production without code review.
