Initialization is done! Time for a quick speed test. I'll also answer the question "what would happen if you lose power during initialization?" and cover some power consumption readouts.
Information about the drives:
The 3.5” IDE drives are all 7200rpm.
The 2.5” SATA drives are all 7200rpm.
The 250GB IDE drives all have 8MB cache and are all the same model (HDS722525VLAT80)
The 500GB IDE drives all have 8MB cache and are all the same model (HDS725050KLAT80)
The 1TB SATA drives all have 32MB cache and are all the same model (H2T10003272S)
The 250GB and 500GB IDE drives require about 13 Watts when in use, each.
The 1TB SATA drives require about 1.65 Watts when in use, each.
Fully loaded with these IDE drives the drive power consumption alone is 182 Watts tops.
Fully loaded with these SATA drives the drive power consumption alone is 23 Watts tops.
Where I live, that results in a savings of about $18 a year at the current electricity price. I'd make the investment of the SATA hard drives and IDE bridges back in about 27 years ;) Of course there is more to consider than just the power usage. Drive reliability and capacity play a major part. So is this all worth it? For me, yes. For you? Only you can know :)
