Buying enough 16tb drives for an efficient raid array is an expensive way to save money.

Something that's easy to overlook with larger drives is that their rebuild times are worse.

"Shucking" drives throws the economics way off even if it means having to do some hacks and losing warranty... Usually the drives that come in enclosures are smaller.

A lot of ways to be efficient with money start by having or using a lot of it:)
