How to pick which drive to replace?

I have a number of WD20EARS and WD20EFRX drives that are reaching capacity and I'd like to replace at least one of them with a 4TB but I'm not sure which one(s) to remove. The drives are working fine as far as I can tell and I'm not adept enough at comparing smart reports. Some are out of warranty so I figured I'd start there. Anything else to consider, from the smart reports specifically?


BTW: Could this ever be made an unraid feature - running smart reports across drives and having it pick the best candidate to replace?
