Drobo and hard disk specs
Question for you Drobo users. Does the cache level of the harddisk matter? Mainly because WD has 3 different 2TB HDDs and the main difference between them is the amount of cache (32MB vs 64MB) and the Caviar Black is just much more expensive than the Cavier Green.
So it is worth going for the more expensive one? Or is capacity all that matters when you chuck it in a Drobo?

With Ethernet and the Drobo controller in between I doubt that the difference will be very big. When using the disks directly at the motherboard / onboard storage controller of a server system the difference is more obvious.
