Hi, I need to replace a faulty HDD in a RAID 1 configuration with N.2 HDD Western Digital WD5000AAKX.
Ca I use a Western Digital model WD5000AZLX ? Here I try to summarize the differences :
Specifications: 500 GB 500 GB
Model number: WD5000AZLX WD5000AAKS
Data transfer rate (max)
Buffer to host 6 Gb/s 3 Gb/s
Host to/from drive (sustained) 150 MB/s 126 MB/s
Average power requirements (W)
Read/Write 6.8 5.4
Idle 6.1 4.9
Standby 1.2 0.7
Sleep 1.2 0.7
Thanks in advance for your support!
The only inconsistency that I have noticed with both drives would be that one of them is SATA 2 and the other one is SATA 3. They both will work as SATA 2 speed.
In regard to RAID level issues, there are no issues.
