NAS Replacement

SMXSteve, Amazon
28 November 2015
  • Summary: The original drive that came with the NAS died in only 6 months and wasn't covered under the warranty due to an issue through distribution and lack of Seagate support. I would have purchased a WD drive but it's best to keep the same drives in a RAID.

So far so good

  • Summary: I usually buy WD HDD's as I have never had a failure with any of them over the years. Most of my failures have been with Seagate products in the past. However, after reading the reviews of these NAS drives, I decided to give them a try. They run very cool (90F while spinning) and are very quiet.
  • Pros: Reasonable price, runs pretty cool, very quiet
  • Cons: Seagate reputation for failure rates

Decent hard drive

  • Summary: I bought couple of these about a month ago to replace the Seagate Barracudas of the same size in my NAS. Barracudas (3out of 5) failed after about 18 months of use. Then I bought this 3 drive combo item to replace the remaining Barracudas just in case.
  • Pros: Stable hard drives so far. Short ownership duration, therefore cannot say more.
  • Cons: None so far.

  • Summary: This is actually an outstanding drive. Just put it in an environment were it doesn't spin down or spins up as a synchronized group of disks.
  • Pros: Running in an unRaid NAS for over just under 2 years. Fast read/write compared to other low-rpm mechanical 2GB drives from Seagate and Samsung. Quiet enough with no clicking.
  • Cons: Takes a looooong time to spin up the drive. This is used in a 1-2 user NAS environment and unRaid is set to spin down drivers after a half hour of inactivity. Other NAS-oriented 5400/5900rpm drives spin up quickly enough but this one just takes forever comparatively - to the point where spontaneo...

Cool, quiet, lots of space but keep a backup

  • Summary: I bought two of these in July. They were working well except one would disappear from the OS on very rare occasions so I changed SATA cables and it seemed fine. Five months later, within two weeks both stopped working while my other HDD in the PC was fine.
