Im pondering if I should use raid or not in my new rig i'm about to build. debate lingers on with myself. Drives are just so big now.
This is horseshit. The statistical URE rate might be one bit per 12 terabytes, but that's PER DISK, not for the whole array. In a seven-2TB-disk array with six disks operating simultaneously, you're talking about a URE rate of 1 bit per 72TB, not 12TB.
