How risky would it be to put 4x14TB drives in a RAID5 setup.

With such large drives I have to wonder about their reliability. What are the chances of that surviving a RAID rebuild? :blobcatthinking:

Are all the drives the same model, and bought at the same time?

@wolf480pl I've made that mistake before. I won't ever again.

Mmm, yeah, we had three drives fail simultaneously in a RAID-5 array at work a few months back.
