What should I do with my drives? (ReadyNAS 104)

Hey guys,

Just ordered a WD RED 4TB but have a couple of other drives spare, what would be the best set up or possible options for me?

1) WD RED 4TB
2) WD Blue 1TB
3) WD Unknown 200GB.

What layout should I do with these drives?

Don't bother with the 200 GB drive.

Personally I'd start with 2x4TB, and add two additional 4 TB later on if needed.

If you really need the extra 1 TB of space you could alternatively include the WD Blue in the initial array. But the WD10EZEX is not on the hardware compatibility list for the RN104, so you would lose Netgear support. In my opinion that is not worth the gain.
