I've never been happy with the loud and intrusive clicks, pings and whirls from my Pegasus 32 R6 - the device now 2 years old. It is connected to my Mac Mini, and is noisy undertaking TimeMachine backups and anti-virus scans.
I've just checked what disks it has internally and was dismayed to find that they are 8TB Toshiba surveillance HDDs (Model Serial ATA MD06ACA800V) - but the Pegasus is primarily for storing data / images and using photography / videograph - not / never CCTV capture. The disks are dated 12 Dec 2019, though I'm not sure how long the warranty is.
To overcome this problem I think that I have at least 3 solutions:
1. Replace with slower disks, say 5400rpm ones
2. Replace with different quieter models: WD Red Plus / Pro or IronWolf NAS at 7200rpm
3. Replace with SSDs: though this is likley to be costly, even if I bought smaller volume size SSDs
I'm not even sure what solid state drives I could use within the Pegasus chassis.
Any tech experts out there have an opinion on what they would do, or advise if there is an optimum solution?
Thanks in advance
