Has any one populated these enclosures with 6TB drives for total of 18TB in raid 5?

Have my eyes on these:

Keep in mind these are consumer class 5400RPM drives with half the MTBF rating of the HGST UltraStar Enterprise Class drives. I know it's tempting because of the price point, but I don't think I would risk it.

They are not enterprise class but they are desk stars which are pretty well reviewed and 7200rpm. What I was really asking about was whether these enclosures can handle 6TB drives.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

6TB Storage Capacity
7200 rpm Rotational Speed
128 MB Cache Memory Buffer
1 Million Hours MTBF
6 Gb/s SATA Interface


this is what promise put in the enclosure when it was new:
Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K3000 HDS723020BLA642 (0f12115) 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

same brand and class of drive but 2TB
