Seagate NAS HDD Review Discussion

7 posts in this topic

The Seagate NAS HDD is a 3.5" form factor, 6Gb/s SATA interface hard drive that spins at 5,900RPM, ranges up to 4TB in capacity and is specifically engineered to be installed in one to five-bay NAS devices. With the consumer and small office NAS market growing quickly and with buyers usually opting for diskless models, Seagate is responding to market demand with this specific use-case drive. Of course there are loads of drives out there that users could implement to populate a NAS, but most are overkill or otherwise sub-optimal for the need. Seagate joins the NAS HDD market by designing a drive to handle NAS workload and operational requirements with their NASWorks specialized firmware, three-year warranty and support from many leading NAS vendors.

Consumer, with only one client conneccted, but intensive read/write/search.

I'm thinking about 8-10x 3/4TB HDDs, and a second expansion pool for the future.

Obviously the safety of the data comes first, since it will be used for storing almost everything that I have.

I'm going to need RAIDZ3, to keep it on the safe side.

You don't test acustic noise or power usage yourself?

Comparing those would have been pretty interesting.

How about Toshiba's DT01ABA300V/PA4293E-1HN0?

Is it already too old to test?

It's very cheap now in Europe and I'm about to order those for home NAS...
