Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It comes down to which kind of system you want. Do you want a system which will attempt to manage itself for you (the EVA), or do you want to manage what goes on which spindles manually (CX4)?

Personally I prefer to prefer the CX4 (and I have one) over the EVA. With the EVA you can end up with the system spending a lot of time moving data around trying to remove hotspots which can lead to lower performance as it contently tries to move data around.
