P50 RAID1 SSD replacement/monitoring questions

2017-08-03, 19:12 PM



Before going all in on purchasing either 2x SM961 or 2xPM961, there are a few things I would like someone could shed some light on, for those that already have a RAID1 system working.


- If one SSD should fail after say 4 years and neither the SM961 or PM961 can be obtained any longer, would a different but same capacity SSD work along with the other S/PM961? I know it is possible for SATA HDDs, but NVMe SSDs?


- I know that Samsung Magician won't work for OEM drives, and won't recognize OEM/retail SSDs in RAID either. I would prefer to have some kind of "level wear" indication that Magician supplies. A tool like CrystalDiskInfo would do the job for me, but does it work with RAID setups too? Can anyone recommend other programs?


Thanks in advance.
