Hi Allan & Benedict,
 
I plan to set up a home server shortly (powered by freebsd & ZFS of course!), and I was wondering if you had any advice when it comes to hard drives. Are consumer grade hard drives OK for 24/7 use, or are enterprise level drives a must, from your own use cases? Also, do you mind sharing your opinions on whether hard drives should be left spinning vs allowing them to spin while not in use. 
 
Thanks and love the show!
Pat
