    @jimbo45, what do you think for my new NAS which replaces D-Link and a StarTech 2-bay raid boxes?

    HDDs can be mounted in any orientation. Even upside down.

    Does Hard Drive Orientation Affect Its Lifespan?

    4 of the hard drives are in 2 pairs of mirrored drives striped so total storage is 6 TB with single drive redundancy. The 5th HDD is a "hot spare". FreeNAS will automatically replace a failing HDD with it should a failure occur. The ZFS file system is absolutely amazing! The SSD holds a Windows 10 Pro VM. The Node 804 case will hold a total of 10 3.5" hard drives, 2 2.5" drives and a slim, slot loading ODD.

    I can recover from a simultaneous failure of two hard drives so long as it is 1 hard drive in each of the fore and aft banks in the case. If both hard drives in one bank simultaneously fail, then I lose my data.
