I have a Pegasus R4 attatched to a 2012 Mac Mini. It currently has four 3.5" 1TB Seagate HDD in it. It's configured as RAID 5.
I'd like to start switching the HDDs out for SSDs, to improve speed and reduce heat and noise.
(1) Can I do it one at a time? Will the Pegasus be able to manage a mix of HDD and SSD drives?
(2) Can I use any SATA 2.5" SSD drives? Or are there some specific things I need to look for?
I was basically looking at one of these choices:
Samsung 870 EVO SATA III SSD 1TB 2.5”
Crucial MX500 1TB 3D NAND SATA 2.5 Inch Internal SSD, up to 560MB/s
Western Digital 1TB WD Green - SATA III 6 Gb/s, 2.5/7mm, Up to 545 MB/s
Western Digital 1TB WD Blue 3D NAND - SATA III 6 Gb/s, 2.5"/7mm, Up to 560 MB/s
OWC Mercury Electra 3G 2.5-inch Serial-ATA 7mm SSD
OWC Mercury Electra 6G 2.5-inch Serial-ATA 7mm SSD
