@ferebee I’d be happy to trade some performance for lower noise in many cases. The HGST Deskstar NAS 4TB seem to completely ignore the command, but also don’t seem to report any error when receiving it.
@ferebee Actually there IS a SATA command for acoustic management which tries to reduce the head movements as much as possible. (In several steps of reduction) Most manufacturers have removed support for this again. I’m not entirely sure why.
@ferebee Ah, the Q3 update, excellent. I’m happy with my HGST 4TBs in my home server. Not the most silent or power efficient ones, but excellent performance. Running 4x6TB HGSTs at a customer site now. Looking good as well.
