    Good price, Futu will jack price as soon as they realise

  •  

    ooo 8TB under $300, I'm temping to pull the trigger on this one!

    Why is this a good deal apart from being 20% off?

  •  

    I just receive my 3x6tb WD Reds from Futu a minute ago from last weeks 20%
    Looks like the 6tb ones have come down $24 from last week.

  •  

    I saw shuckable WD 8TBs for $136 US with a particular deal recently, but hard to get to Aus. Totally heartbreaking :(

      For one thing, you get a warranty :)

      •  

        true! however Amazon warranty is quite good as well, from my experience

          Please provide evidence that WD reds are better than Seagate Ironwolves? Full disclosure my current array is Red but my backup is Seagate NAS drives (the generation before they rebranded everything).
          seagate has had a bad rap on 3TB barracudas desktop drives but these are different manufacturing process and there's not been any widespread reports of disc failure.
          Also, good luck getting amazon to rma a shucked drive.

          @serrin: Apparently half the cache and slower spin speeds = arguably superior.

        •  

          @Geoff897: Sorry, my previous comment mentioned 3TB but they were infact 4TB drives. Still, those are previous generation Barracudas as not current Ironwolves. Also not 8TB drives, which fared well (but haven't stood the rigors of Backblaze's use for long). They likely share some common technology but since Ironwolves are not included in Backblaze's data centres it's impossible to extrapolate from it. It's like saying that 2016 VW Polo's are bad, ergo don't buy a 2018 VW Golf. Maybe? Maybe not?
          Anyway in the same table the 8TB barracudas have had low failure rates but were only added 12 months prior to that data set. So less clear how that info casts shade on these drives.

          @potplanty: slow speed is to save power … i don’t have issues with slow spin ….. do,like bigger cache though.

          i have reds and iron wolf …. no issues with either …..

          @serrin:

          Are 'mybook' handled differently to 'My passport' drives? If so then I see your point, if not then MyBook drives can be removed as during RMA process you..wait for it… remove the drive then send it back.
          I'm assuming my passport' drives are not user accessible?

      Arguably superior

      Alright, I'll bite. Present your arguments. Because from where I'm sitting the Seagate with 256MB cache and 7200RPM speeds vs your WD80EFZX with its 128MB cache and 5400RPM speed is arguably superior.

      • +1 vote

        arguably! have no personal experience, just the whispers of internet forums of people swearing WD Reds are more reliable etc, and then comparing the 7200RPM of Seagate vs 5400RPM of WD Red and using that as reasoning why the WD Red is more reliable; hence why I'm asking because so far I've only used the WD Red from a shucked My Passport

      •  

        Lower RPM drives are preferable due to less heat and noise in a JBOD, so that just leaves the cache which I don't think is even relevant when it comes to a NAS environment, but I could be wrong.

        There's more to hardware than just raw number specs.

        • +2 votes

          The only number that matters for a NAS drive (aside from price, this is OzB afterall) is failure rate. Barracudas of a specific size (4TB) and generation (~2013-2015?) had a terrible failure rate when used in Backblaze's data centres. People now hating on Seagate. Fine hate on Seagate, but realise your evidence base is as firm as a as a coke drinker hating on pepsi.
          I drink water.

    Is there a way to check if this is a shingle drive?

      This one doesn't use SMR. Generally, a HDD for NAS means it is not SMR. 7200rpm drives generally won't use SMR since SMR is cost saving and 7200rpm is normally for performance.

      • +1 vote

        I haven't tested it yet, but I read that SMR HDD's are particularly slow when they have to overwrite data. If you are just going to archive a collection and not make significant changes to it over time, they are fine, but avoid for drives that are going to be frequently updated.

        The Seagate Iron drives are really good BTW, much better than previous generation Seagate drives. They are almost as fast as Western Digital Blacks, and don't have any behavioural quirls like an older Seagate 6TB drive I owned. For a desktop computer I would recommend a 10 or 12 'Terrorbite' helium filled drive though, since they use less power, weigh less, and presumably generate less heat as well.

      Yep netsurfer is correct, these are not SMR drives. SMR performs quite poorly in RAID configurations which these drives are built for.

  • +2 votes

    Not bad. I paid $297.53 at the last eBay sale (PUMP20 code). I'm going to wait for the 12TBs to drop in price now though.

  •  

    If only the desktop drives are this price.

  •  

    Tempting but my NAS is only half full, would be an extravagance.

  •  

    Can recommend - I've got the 10TB version and, admittedly after one RMA, for a drive that broke early on (a few weeks in) no issues at all.

  •  

    Is this about as cheap as they get?
    I’ll need another one but it’s not urgent, so not sure whether I should just get it now or hold out.

  •  

    Yep out of stock. I managed to pay $294.80 per drive around 2 months ago using a 10% off sitewide code. I bought 8 of them. Excellent drives so far in my home server, been really happy with them.

    back in stock as of now!

  •  

    Can these NAS drives be used to archive media?

  •  

    any recommendations on a box to but them in?
    something with RAID and remote access functions?

      Google FreeNAS and HP Microserver. It's the best bang-for-buck NAS. Requires some technical work: installation from USB stick. I've been using it for many years on HP NL36 & NL40 Microserver.

  •  

    Thanks just decided to order one - will compare to a WD Red 8TB I have

  • -2 votes

    Here is more information on the Seagate IronWolf 8TB for NAS It comes with 5 years warranty and Heath Management

    •  

      Mate that is the Pro, this comes with 3 years warranty. Are you even associated with Seagate because you are giving out false information. The health management is only available on selected Synology NAS devices

    of 4 of these I bought from FUTU 2 died, one was DOA. Futu do not package these drives appropriately, its a wonder any of them work on arrival. Also had to fight to get a new drive, not a reconditioned one. I saved myslef $400 buying these drives over say hitachis, but it's a false economy IMHO

    •  

      ah crap you posted this too late. Fingers crossed mine is ok

      Also I just saw that MSY have it for$318 so real saving is $20
