    Reliability of seagate expansion 2.5" 2 TB

    As far as the IronWolf goes, the 2TB and 3TB models have different sound ratings. Here is the spec sheet which covers both capacities as well as others. 2TB IronWolf (ST2000VN004): IDLE - Typical 1.9 bels, Max 2.0 bels SEEK - Typical 2.1 bels, Max 2.2 bels 3TB IronWolf (ST3000VN007): IDLE - Typical 2.3 bels, Max 2.4 bels SEEK - Typical 2.5 bels, Max 2.6 bels The original post does talk about ST2000LM007, which was a 2.5" laptop drive, keep in mind the IronWolfs are 3.5" drives. Here are the sound acoustics from a 2TB BarraCuda just to give an idea of how the IronWolf does in relation to a standard desktop-grade drive (spec sheet for the BarraCuda here): 2TB, 3.5" BarraCuda (ST2000DM006): IDLE - Typical 2.5 bels, Max 2.6 bels SEEK - Typical 2.7 bels, Max 2.8 bels If you wanted another 2.5" drive to compare to, here's the 2.5" version of the 2TB BarraCuda (spec sheet here): 2TB, 2.5" BarraCuda (ST2000LM015): IDLE - Typical 2.0 bels, Max 2.2 bels SEEK - Typical 2.2 bels, Max 2.4 bels Given that information, the 2TB IronWolf comes out the winner on quietest drive as far as these offerings go. Just keep in mind that the 2TB, 3.5" BarraCuda is 7200 RPM, while the rest of the drives on this list in these capacities will be 5400/5900 RPM. Regardless of which route you decide to go in the end, thanks for considering Seagate!

    Seagate 2.5inch NAS

    Hey nasman, thanks for reaching out to us here both on this post and the PM you sent. Sorry we've taken a moment to get back to you. Had to pull in our experts on this one as it went beyond the scope of the forums team's understanding. Our SeaChest_Configure command-line tool allows for timers on error recovery controls to be adjusted, our nomenclature for this is "SCT Error Recovery Control". The documentation: --sctReadTimer [info | value] (SATA Only) (Seagate Only) Use this option to set the read command timer value for synchronous commands and NCQ commands with in-order data delivery enabled. Note: this timer starts at the time that the drive processes the command, not the time it is received. This timer value is volatile and is cleared at each power cycle. Use the "info" argument to get the current status of the read timer. A value of 0 means that all possible error recovery will be performed before returning status (i.e. the Read Command Timer is disabled). Other values should include a unit to know the time to use. If no unit is provided, it is assumed to be the value * 100 ms. The maximum time that can be specified is 1 hour, 49 minutes, 13 seconds. Note: On some SAT HBAs/bridges, status will not be able to be determined due to HBA/bridge limitations. Ex1: --sctReadTimer 15s for a 15 second timer. Ex2: --sctReadTimer 15000ms for a 15 second timer expressed in milliseconds Ex2: --sctReadTimer 150 for a 15 second timer with no units specified --sctWriteTimer [info | value] (SATA Only) (Seagate Only) Use this option to set the write command timer value for synchronous commands and NCQ commands with in-order data delivery enabled. Note: this timer starts at the time that the drive processes the command, not the time it is received. This timer value is volatile and is cleared at each power cycle. Use the "info" argument to get the current status of the write timer. A value of 0 means that all possible error recovery will be performed before returning status (i.e. the Write Command Timer is disabled). Other values should include a unit to know the time to use. If no unit is provided, it is assumed to be the value * 100 ms. The maximum time that can be specified is 1 hour, 49 minutes, 13 seconds. Note: On some SAT HBAs/bridges, status will not be able to be determined due to HBA/bridge limitations. Ex1: --sctWriteTimer 15s for a 15 second timer. Ex2: --sctWriteTimer 15000ms for a 15 second timer expressed in milliseconds Ex2: --sctWriteTimer 150 for a 15 second timer with no units specified This feature is also available in our openSeaChest toolset under openSeaChest_Configure with the same command-line options. Also, to verify if this feature is enabled on any drive, the --deviceinfo (or -i) command will list some features supported by the drive. Example, output may show something along these lines: Features Supported: Sanitize SATA NCQ SATA Device Sleep Preservation SATA Software Settings Preservation [Enabled] SATA Device Initiated Power Management Power Management Security SMART [Enabled] 48bit Address APM [Enabled] GPL DSN AMAC Sense Data Reporting TRIM SCT Write Same -----> SCT Error Recovery Control SCT Feature Control SCT Data Tables Host Logging As far as head parking, SeaTools should be able to adjust this under functions to disable extended power conditions.

    Seagate Announces 14TB Helium HDD

    It's PMR & 7200 RPM, the other details aren't officially released yet. Here is our Exos 14TB Blog Post and here's an article from Anandtech. Hopefully those help shed some light on it. The Anandtech one speculates on platter count, however there's nothing official circulating yet to confirm/deny from a company standpoint.

    Seagate DJI Fly Drive Review

    We do have a newer LaCie DJI Copilot drive which was announced at CES 2018 and should fulfill those hopes, it has a built-in screen to do the things you mentioned. It copies files directly with no need for a laptop, you can use a phone/tablet to manage files, and it allows you to charge your phone on the go. https://www.lacie.com/products/dji-copilot/
  11. Our SED (Self-Encrypting Drives) have Instant Secure Erase functionality through SeaTools. Check out this article from our Knowledge Base.

    14TB performance reviews

    We actually have the manufacturing process online for HAMR drives, in capacities 20TB+, with shipments to key customers before this year is out, and hitting the public in 2019. Multi-actuator tech is in the works as well, and we are seeing what kind of useful implementations that can be applied to, in combination with HAMR and other tech, etc. We recently did a demo at CES 2018. Here are some links about what we've got in the works you may want to check out: Seagate HAMR Blog Seagate Multi-Actuator Blog Tom's Hardware Multi-Actuator Article HAMR/Multi-Actuator IMGUR Album
