I was hoping that somebody here would be able to give some advice on compatible internal hard drives for ubuntu server and xbmcbuntu
I currently use an old p4 pc running xbmcbuntu as a media centre pc and server with a 1tb external hdd. eventually I will buy a mini-itx for my media centre and use my p4 as a raid server.
I want to get a 2tb internal drive, but I'm unsure as to what the best drive would be. From reading online the Western Digital Reds are a pretty good choice as they are designed for NAS, and seem to be more reliable than the seagate barracudas. However I have read somewhere that the western digital drives dont play nice with linux because of the intellipower feature. Does anybody have any experience with this / could offer me some advice.
Thanks in advance
