It's generally accepted that two things can break a ZFS pool: the use of
non-ECC RAM; and storage devices which do not respect cache flushes. You're
aiming for a system which is likely to have both. The latter by virtue of
the fact that most USB <=> SATA controllers often don't respect sync
requests. Both of these can lead to broken metadata/uberblocks and hence a
Not that ZFS will be any *less* reliable than any given file system, it's
just more likely to be able to tell you about the problems.
