Definitely agree. Unfortunately, that also means you need to stagger the acquisitions, which means planning ahead which is becoming something of an exotic science these days.
When I decided to go for a home NAS, I first spent four months buying one 3TB every month, to make as sure as I could that not all disks would be from the same batch. On the last month, I bought the 4th disk and the Synology station that would make them all useful.
I do not see that most management types would be able to have that much patience.
