    This is going to sound borderline crazy but I was considering doing a 3x drive mirror or mirror + hot spare for a pfSense installation. The low power and costs means it is feasible.

    Anyone know if SMART is enabled on these? Do they have custom HP firmware?

    Looking for something like this for a mirror boot on my FreeNAS box. I want to get away from USB drives. Looks like no shipping to Canada on this one...

    Another seller had this drive listed for $18.99 w/FS and BO. I offered 15 bucks yesterday. Seller just accepted the offer. Too bad it was a one off.

    Be careful if you are going to buy 320.
    The 8MB bug was not 100% fixed.

    Thanks for feedback.

    I'm not sure if I want to go that route for my pfsense appliance replacement due to AES-NI requirements and save power, or just throw in 2x S3500 80gb. The power usage difference during usage is rather drastic. I no doubt could recoup the $, just not sure it's worth the hassle of buying/selling/shipping :)

    We do go without power for days sometimes so it will no doubt let me run longer on batteries, then again my fiber equipment will use at-least 5x as much as the pfsense router so it's kind of a wash over 2-4w...
