  1. Thank you. The Iron Wolf Pro (ST6000NE0023 is the newer revision for the 6TB model?) has 600 000 load/unload cycles, the read/write access time is better than Barracuda PRO, however the Barracuda Pro is better in PCMark tests (applications) To me the Iron Wolf Pro is closer to enterprise levels at same price with Barracuda Pro, at least for 6 TB. Going to use the HDD with many audio files and music audio programs. The biggest problem would be for the drive to fail and make all data useless. Because Seagate is going to replace the HDD and lose money, and next time the customer will no longer buy from same company. I never had problems with Seagate. Would you recommend an Exos enterprise drive instead for desktop ? How is the firmware tuned on those enterprise HDDs ?
  2. Hello Brian and forum users, I would like if you could in the future test Enterprise Drives with Consumer Tests, so we can see for example how Seagate IronWolf Pro vs Seagate BarraCuda Pro perform. Like here where they test many : Is there any reason to take the BarraCuda Pro instead of IronWolf Pro ? Thank you !
  3. WD Gold : Seagate Exos E : (former Enterprise Capacity) Seagate Exos X : (former Enterprise Capacity) HGST Ultrastar 7K6000 : Toshiba also ? Which one is worth it compared to ( VS ) BarraCuda Pro, WD Black etc ?
  4. 30 dB is inaudible. Don't need crazy low sound, just to not get some crazy constant sound from the HDD. How did you found the WD Black 4-6 TB sound like ? Was it louder than the rest ?
  5. In quantity of 1 which is the most reliable, powerful and silent Enterprise Drive 7200 rpm ? The 2 TB WD Gold is inaudible it seems under usage : And it is a much better choice than the consumer WD Black 2 TB at the same price ! What other enterprise drives could be used in a Desktop PC for music production with good performance ?
  6. Brian, can you state an opinion, what would you recommend in my case from your experience or knowledge ?
  8. Options & Prices: 2.5" BarraCuda Hard Drive 4 TB (ST4000LM024) 161 EURO BarraCuda Hard Drive 5 TB (ST5000LM000) 201 EURO 3.5" BarraCuda Pro Hard Drive 4 TB (128 MB) ST4000DM006 165 EURO BarraCuda Pro Hard Drive 6 TB (256 MB) ST6000DM004 238 EURO BarraCuda Pro Hard Drive 8 TB (256 MB) ST8000DM0004 304 EURO BarraCuda Pro Hard Drive 10 TB (256 MB) ST10000DM0004 394 EURO Western Digital BLACK 6TB (128 MB) WD6002FZWX 240 EURO Hitachi Ultrastar 7K6000 6TB ? What to choose ? Anything better ?
  9. I know storage review also tests HDD, and i saw your review, but i wanted to point out what i found when i read the first page of this review : It tells all the mechanical changes WD did from the 4TB to the 6TB model and there are several. Does this 6TB model has 5.45TB real storage ? I am making a new PC for Music Production / Video & Picture Editing. For the exact cost of Samsung 850 PRO 512 GB i can buy the WD Black 6TB, which according to tests beats a 10,000 rpm drive. I was thinking to make a silent PC, so the only concern is noise, how much noise could this drive produce ? Are these results relevant : ? Anything under 30 dB like 23 dB is inaudible ? What do you make of the author comments ? I need the HDD for normal usage like recordings, synthesizers or sample based music creation. Would this drive be OK for that, or would i need a faster drive or an SSD ? Any suggestions, is there a better alternative ? And are there any new HDD coming out ? An alternative could be : Seagate BarraCuda Pro 6TB (ST6000DM004) ? It has same price as 6 TB black.

    Seagate Reliability Lawsuit 1.5 & 3TB

    What i am saying is that they knew very well what are the exact components that they used in their product. So no one can accuse them that they didn't know what they were producing and selling to the public. Some big companies like Gigabyte are know to remove components or replace them in their products, with lower quality components some time after introducing them to the market without specifying that. It may be the same thing with Seagate.

    Seagate Reliability Lawsuit 1.5 & 3TB

    Probably yes, but now they are big boys and have loads of cash. It is time to stop putting crappy Chinese components that fail.

    Seagate Reliability Lawsuit 1.5 & 3TB

    This is a multi billion company, it's not like some small company that needs love for making small mistakes. I don't care about any company, unlike you. If they make crappy HDD (Chinese components) because they don't care about their customers but only about profit it's their problem, but paying reviewers to praise them and defend them it's utterly pathetic and a shame for such a huge corporation. But i guess this is capitalism, fool the customer take their money, spit them in the face, pay people to defend companies everywhere. I guess the court of law will decide and make justice this time not the reviewers or the paid forum fanboys.

    I don't advise Seagate for HDD. They don't make HDD like they did 10 years ago. Right now they are the worst. See :
