  • Seagate Ironwolf (Pro)s are also commonly found in these

  • Mine is the exos 12tb. It would be safer if you wait for the 14tb price drop which would be 100% exos and was $330 yesterday.

    • 14 TB No 100% , someone got ST14000NE0008 ironwolf pro.16tb is guaranteed exos.

      • Ahh i see. I've Bought 3 at $332 each a month ago and all of them are exos. I think iron wolf is added to 14tb version lately. According to those reviews on Reddit, i cant say all but 80% of them report to get exos

  • 290.83/12= 24.2358333

  • I saw a few comments that say these are loud? Well how loud? I have two 4TB external drives and one 4TB Ironwolf drive in the PC. Are larger capacity drives louder than smaller capacity ones?

  • What do people store on these?

    • Bloke on bloke stuff mostly

    • porn, of course

    • Linux ISOs

    • Now that Google photos is getting rid of its free storage thing, in planning on getting a large hard drive to stay storing all my photos and videos. I shoot my videos in 1080p 60fps or better so they can take a bit of space, same with high quality photos, Linux ISOs, ps3 and ps4 game backups. I might not get this one but a 10 or 8 tb one, if the price gets really low

      • Do you use an app to sync photos from your phone to a HDD?

        Good plan, but you'll need to buy three drives - make regular backups onto the two spare drives, and keep one of them off-site to guard against burglary/fire/virus etc.
        ALL hard drives fail eventually, some quicker than others - buying a single drive to store all your photos isn't practical unless you don't care about losing them.

      • If the photos are important to you then I would strongly suggest taking another look at online services, even if you need to pay for them. If you lose your house in a fire, any drives you have there will be gone too. Online storage doesn't;t just give you a copy of your data, it also provides off site resiliency.

  • Be careful with these, I ordered a bunch of 16TB ones and the first 2 shipped from Amazon US were just thrown into a sachet. No padding, no box, no buddle wrap.

    By the time I got it, the boxes were both badly damaged. Luckily disk test of the drives seem fine but I will be making a complaint to Amazon on their shipping methods.

  • Looks to be OOS already
