    Of course this gets posted today, bought two reds yesterday for $165 each.

    Then again, Seagate.

  •  

    Good deal, problem is I don't have NAS system yet. Any deal on Synology?

    Sweet, got 2

    is the IronWolf better than the WD Red? I have 7 x WD Red and out of which 1 has read/write errors after 2 years of use. Hoping the IronWolf is better.

      Seagate is generally less reliable than WD. If you can afford it, IronWolf Pro is ideal. If the drives break down, they'll recover your data at no cost within a certain timespan (3 years, maybe). Bear in mind that hard drive recovery services from physical failure is really expensive, like $1-2K-per-drive-expensive.

      •  

        Thanks mate. if it is less reliable then it is no deal for me, regardless of whether Seagate will recover the data or not when it fails.

          I wouldn't call Seagate more or less reliable than WD. HDDs are HDDs, they have bad batches etc, regardless of brand.

          If you are running a NAS, set it up with RAID 1,5,10 and you'll be fine if you lose a disk. It happens, i wouldn't suggest relying on a data recovery offer, even if its included.

      i have WD green and zero issue for 5 years. NAS online for around 12 hours every day.

      WD Red are better

    everyone, just be careful with these lot. You'll get your harddrive in a thin layer of bubble wrap inside a auspost satchel. Many stories of hard drives failing after a few weeks.

    I purchased an item from Warehouse1 not long ago from eBay sale, never received the item, now I have to open a Paypal dispute to get my money back, their shipping method is randomly ship small number of orders and hold up the rest, seems they have cahsflow issue,No Paypal= NO order from Warehouse1, buyer beware.

    •  

      You probably need to message them. They seem tend to foget to ship items …. I had keep messaging them for replacement (due to sent wrong item) in end I was fed up with waiting and ask for refund and brought it from another seller.

      •  

        I did chase them soon as the order placed, was told escalated to Warehouse team, accounts team and manager then said item been sent but no tracking number etc etc, open Paypal dispute as it was too many lies after sales, a painful experience.

        •  

          So true… I don't know how they can mistaken a gigabit switch to a 100/10 switch. They seem to have multiple eBay account and actual warehouse and the system they have is very inefficient.

          I mean other seller such as mwave actually email/tell you that stock is coming from distributor(Local or overseas) and they going to be delay. I mean i willing to wait along as there is reason for the delay and offer you refund etc and free express postage.

          I only dealt with them a few times and and 3/4 of that is bad experience either with delay or sent the wrong item and won't send replacement etc, unless you message them consistently.

          How can you not know this? They look the same, they're a rectangular box with RJ45 jacks on them. Confusing a gigabit to a slower switch is something that I can imagine is very easy to do.

          Probably hard for people like yourself that are perfect to understand I guess.

          @Maverick-au:

          you do realise that the entire PC market relies on part numbers being checked and not physical appearance?

          Otherwise, everyone would just order 64GB SSD's and Geforce 1030's and hope that they get 4TB SSD's and GTX 1080Ti's.

          They all look the same and a single letter can mean thousands of dollars difference.

        •  

          @Maverick-au:

          Well i don't know how their inventory works but the place i work at we rarely check the external packaging as we usually just scan the barecode and check the product number on box to see if it correct product. Plus usually if they sorting system is decent they shouldn't put non gigabit switch with gigabit imo.

          I mean majority of the product in tech is pretty much the same, just take a look at SSD. The only difference is small sticker on the bottom but the difference in money is loads.

          I mean the person is working there, they should know at least can tell apart with gigabtye switch compare to non. If not, i have no idea how he got hired.

          So what, are you saying that mistakes never happen?

          They all look the same and a single letter can mean thousands of dollars difference.

          Again so what, are you saying that you have NEVER EVER made a mistake in your job?

          Thanks Sherlock but again have you never made a mistake?

          So now you're saying that you are perfect and never made a mistake?

          @Maverick-au:

          I mean after waiting for 2 week delay the least they could is send the right item.

          I mean if non tech savy person who brought the product they would have never know.

          I never meant to say that a person should get fired or he shouldn't be allow to make a mistake. It just i found their warehousing/business practices is kinda old. I never had issues like this with other suppliers/resellers. They usually upfront about the stock levels and mistake.

          It also the fact they said they will send me replacement but after chasing them for a weeks with no updates. I finally ask for refund and they reply back within 3 hours with a refund. I mean if they don't have product in stock they could have told me instead of misleading me and wasting my time.

  •  

    thks, grabbed one.

    Got one from the deal last year. nice thing is it's 5900rpm not 7200 RPM so saves a bit on power and heat, but has all the tech features of the higher models in the iron wolf range.

    seems better value to buy one of these NAS drives and out into an external case than buy a ready made expansion drive which sometimes come with archive drives inside.

  •  

    Great deal thanks OP just purchased 1.

    $75 To get the item 1-2 days earlier

    That is a serious bargain, thanks OP.

    To everybody on here saying WD are more reliable than Seagate, ew Seagate etc, I'd love to see your actual sources for saying that.

    I've run HDD's in servers for years and years, and i can say definitively my Seagate experience has been on par with / better than WD, and i've even run (and am currently running) the Seagate 3TB's that had all those original failure issues. Before anybody links that article from years back with that high rate of Seagate failures, make sure you pay attention to the sample size, that was a single batch with an extremely small sample, so its not exactly valid.

    Honestly, just don't trust a single drive to last forever, design your storage to have some redundancy if its something you can't affort to lose and buy whatever performs to your spec for the appropriate price and its pretty much irrelevant what you buy.

      They're just the modern version of old wives, they hear about a failure without any of the context and keep telling the same story.

      I can see your point;

      I'm in a office where we have 20x Dell systems with the dreaded 3tb Seagate model - so far 18 systems have had 2 or all 3 HDD failures in the last 3 years; each system has 3x of the 3TB drives - totaling 44x drives failed. Internal, never moved - raid5 or Raid0 stripe.

      Additionally I've bought through the same period 80x WD 6TB RED's HDD for backup and movement between sites, via post and various deliveries. So far i've had 13x drives fail.

      Rough stats:
      44 of 60 drives failed - 73% - on running machines 24/7 - not always worked each day
      13 of 80 drives failed - 16.25% - randomly moved back and forth from HDD docks and shipped around the state, then run heavily for few days, then moved.

      Though this can and will change - Toshiba 3tbs in the same period, we've lost I think 10 out of 30, 2tb's - Ive still got the first generation of 2TB WD Green's running with a build date of 2010!

      In saying that the new generation of Seagate seem to be ok, no actual figures yet - but will try to keep a log - only have a few so far, 20x 8TB's and 4x 10tbs - over a year old and only 1x 8tb failed and the 10s are ok.

      Will know in the coming months on 12's and hopefully 14tbs.

        fairly bad performance there from the Seagates, those 3TBs definitely had a bad batch though, IIRC it was around the Thailand floods, QA probably went through the floor then. With that said, the WDs were definitely seeing a different usage profile than they were.

        Those WD 2TBs were pretty good though, i had a bunch of those, sold them to a friend, he is still using them now!

    Ordered something from these guys recently, never shipped, never replied to multiple emails over a two week period. Had to raise a PayPal dispute to get my money back.

    Wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot barge pole. Buyer beware.

    I ordered these exact hard drives from the seller a week ago. They have still not shipped, and Ive had to send a message to the seller. I'd be cautious from buying from them.

  •  

    This might have expired, but there's a 6TB Ironwolf still discounted for $193.

      Mine arrived today; DOA

      •  

        That's very unfortunate. Was it bubble-wrapped and then packed in a box?
        Mine has also arrived in is now going through the tests as we speak.

        •  

          Yes; thin layer of bubble wrap. Box bigger than the drive so it had room to bounce around.

          My drive wouldn't spin up at all.

    I got mine today, came in a box and the hard drive had about 5 layers of bubblewrap. Formatting now and once its finished ill do a surface scan.

    • +1 vote

      Touch wood, full format and full surface scan complete and no errors so all good for me. Should have bought 2.

    •  

      Same here - the two I ordered came in a nice sturdy cardboard box, and 7 layers of bubble wrap! Will test soon, but it's promising to hear yours are error free.
