Is mixing enterprise HDDs and desktop HDDs in a NAS a bad idea? (Trying to transition a NAS to all enterprise drives without the large one off cost by instead replace the desktop drives with enterprise drives as they fail)
Edit: Just to clear up some of the questions below, as I was admittedly rather vague. I am referring to SATA "Enterprise disks" e.g. Seagate Constellation ES.3 ST2000NM0033 vs. their desktop counterparts E.g. Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001. Would mixing these types of disk cause problems? From the looks of the replies, yes. I will also ask the NAS manufacturer but I wanted an independent/second viewpoint.
The NAS is a RAID 5 array with 8 disks (1 is a cold spare).
