It is difficult to choose the right hard drive case for me. Therefore, I create a framework to help me compare them. It is FIPS: Fan, Interface, Power, and Solid.
When I was looking for a new hard disk for my Network-attached storage (aka NAS), I found the startup current of Seagate ST2000DM001 (aka Barracuda or Desktop HDD) in my Buffalo HD-LX2TU3 is 2.5A and output current of the adapter is 1.5A. It requires 67% higher than the adapter could offer. Is it safe use of electricity usage and okay to my hard disk?
I didn’t know and decide to research.
