    how does this compare to this one?
    Seagate BarraCuda

      ST8000DM004 Barracuda is Seagate's cheapest and lowest end drives. They're 5400RPM SMR drives.

      Theres some discussion about SMR tech on an old deal here. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/609031#comment-10180903 but I believe the general consensus was SMR was more suited to write-once, read-many type of storage scenarios because SMR drives don't like over-writing. With PMR drives, there is no overlap of the magnetic tracks so it doesn't suffer the same issue.

        so this one is better than the Barracuda right? I'm sorry I'm not a very technical person.

          How do you intend on using the storage? "better" is subjective, best you tell us how you plan on using the storage and we can tell you which drive suits your requirements

            @bdl: I wanna chuck all of my old photos and videos in there so I have the "faster, better" drive available for the current projects

            @bdl: would this just be good for video games? occasional video storage? are these things noisey?

            wont be my boot drive, a SSD will. Just dont really want to build a NAS, would rather just have it in my PC if that doesnt cause problems.

              @RI4V4N: Both would be work for your use case. For old photos/video storage that you would write once and read many times, this is a value option: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/611194 - or an internal SMR (non-NAS) drive if you wanted to save money.

              @trantonz For your old photos and videos - have you implemented a backup strategy for these? You may wish to grab two disks and backup to the second one if they are important and you don't want to lose the photos/videos in case of drive failure.

    Are these generally louder and hotter than the WD Red counterpart?

    • +2 votes

      No. I've owned both and there's no noticible difference in that area. I've had much better lifespan and reliability from the Ironwolfs over the Red though!

      Less SMRery :)

    What NAS do you use scrimshaw if any? I'm always curious what people have.

    •  

      Don't have a NAS and I don't really need one.

      I just have a Toshiba X300 that's running out of space and needs upgrading. Can only fit 2 drives in my Fractal Design case.

        Interesting. So it sounds like you do need a NAS then ;)

    what's nas? would this be okay just for a normal desktop?

    • +3 votes

      NAS just means network attached storage, which is basically just a storage device that is accessible over your local network. NAS drives are designed to work for long periods of time and sometimes have sensors to detect vibration.

      It will work fine in your regular desktop.
