  1. Thanks for sharing. Here's our blog and some spec sheets/product pages on the new stuff: Our Blog Post BarraCuda 510 (NVMe) FireCuda 510 (NVMe) IronWolf 110 (SATA SSD) LaCie Mobile SSD LaCie Mobile Hard Drive Backup Plus Ultra Touch, Backup Plus Slim, and Backup Plus Portable
  2. Thanks for sharing. Here is the LaCie d2 product page for anyone that wants to look it over.
  3. +1 for Synology. Alternatives to look at are QNAP, ASUSTOR, Thecus, and TerraMaster. Make sure you/they also grab drives engineered for the rigorous 24x7 environment that a NAS is known for. Our drives in this space are dubbed IronWolf & IronWolf Pro, and when you pair them with compatible units from Synology and the others listed above, you get an extended drive health monitoring feature known as IHM (IronWolf Health Management).

    We did a little poking around internally, the safest thing we can say right now is to expect Q1 2019.

    Seagate Achieves 16TB HAMR HDD

    Happy to see interest here in our HAMR developments. The current roadmap is for us to produce a 20TB HAMR drive before the decade is out and potentially reach 100TB by 2025. Here's a few more blogs where we've been talking about the new developments of HAMR lately: HAMR Milestone: Seagate Achieves 16TB Capacity on Internal HAMR Test Units HAMR: the Next Leap Forward is Now Seagate MACH.2 Multi Actuator Technology Breaks Throughput Record; HAMR Reliability Tests Exceed Industry Standards And here's why it matters: Data Age 2025

    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!
