I need to get a SAN for these drives but i wanted to see if anyone has used these drives before and if they had any recommendations what i should use with these drives! Im having a little bit of trouble finding some reviews for the drive in a SAN environment...

My recommendation is to simply not use your Seagate drives.
They are notorious for failure - use Hitachi or Western Digital.

Are you building your own SAN ?

Yes i ordered these drives on accident and so i just figured i would buy a san and throw these drives in to use for extra storage... not to worried about failure... just another raid to hold extra stuff...

i am only not worried because i know what is going on it... i am mainly using it for learning purposes and storing some movies at my home trying to mess around with some different raids in different situations... just didnt want to spend more than 4-600 on a san that i can throw these bad boys in... Im actually a little paranoid about backing up and failure with important data... :)

Perhaps instead of SAN (storage area network, typically systems accessing shared storage at the block level with the help of a system that coordinates their access) you mean to say NAS (network-attached storage, typically systems accessing shared storage through a server at the file level)?
