Currently, I have about 5 2TB drives.
I'm looking to replace them with either two or three 8TB drives or two 12TB drives - depending on the bank balance and how much I'd get selling the 2TB drives.

But from a power perspective, what is better?

From a cabling point of view, the bigger drives would be much better and I guess from a power consumption point of view, the bigger drives would be better here too?
