WD 2TB Novatech
Great deal on Novatech ordered a few for my WHS2011 box.
These hard disks have had alot of problems with corrupting data while not being used..
Was going to order the smaller one. But have read alot of bad reviews.

thanks Joey for the update on corrupting etc.
I may look into.the 1tb version now..

Apparently the problems have been fixed in a firmware update.

Actually the problem is related to enclosures and operating systems that do not support Advanced Format. If you are using an older OS, you need to flick the jumper switch to compatibility mode to prevent corruption issues. If you are using Windows 7, Server 2008 R2 or Home Server 2011 you should be perfectly fine with these.

Using one of these for around 6 months now. First on Vista now on Win7. Never had any probs with data corruption as of yet.
