Anyone know if this Seagate Barracuda 3TB drive [ST3000DM001] will work ok for RAID 5 in a Hardware Raid controller?
I am looking to use it in a Mediasonic HFR2-SU3S2FW Proraid Box 3.5IN SATA 4 Bay RAID Enclosure USB 3.0 eSATA Firewire 800 Black. The manufacturer suggests only using drives that make note of RAID 5 compatibility, but I don't have the coin currently for the Western Digital Blacks.
Thank you for the help.

I can't find the normal numbers listed though, but it does say Desktop Raid in the Best Fit bit so I would assume unless stated that means fully comp with all versions of Raid, you may want to e.mail customer services to confirm though, hth.
