"Out of the box the EX4 is set up in a standard RAID 5 array. In the case of the reviewed 8TB model, that meant 6TB of usable space was available, as the fourth drive is used for parity, should there be a single drive failure"
RAID-4 has a dedicated parity disk.
RAID-5 is distributed parity whereby parity bits are striped across all drives.
Bought 3x 3TB Seagate ST3000DM001 in Sept 2012. All three failed within 12 months and were replaced under warranty. 2 of the replacements have now failed and as the warranty is only honoured from the original purchase date they are now just expensive bricks. £200 I could have just set fire to and saved some time.
My 5 six yr old 750G Samsungs are all fine.
