I am about to acquire some disks for use with ZFS (currently using zfs-fuse
v0.7.0). I'm aware of some 4k alignment issues with Western Digital
advanced format disks.
As far as I can tell, the Hitachi Deskstar 7K3000 (HDS723030ALA640) uses
512B sectors and so I presume does not suffer from such issues (because it
doesn't lie about the physical layout of sectors on-platter)
Can someone confirm this or point out any other known issues with the disks?
I will be using the disks raw, unpartitioned.
