which 8 or 6 tb hdd for low noise, high performance & reliability

Recommended Posts

for 8 tb sg claims 25/26 db while wd claims 20/29 db

anyone can compare noise of sg 8tb nas for idle/seek with sg 8tb desktop and wd 8tb red (5400 rpm)

or any 6 tb drive better than these ones?

thanks in advance

Which drive models exactly are you comparing in your specs above?

I've got multiple copies of Seagate Desktop HDD 8TB units in (ST8000DM002) in several desktops here and I can't notice the noise at all, I would assume a similar situation with any of their competitors from WD, Toshiba, or HGST.

However my labs and working areas are not the quietest, so it's hard for me to make a true comparison as to how noisy or not noisy they are if you have sensitive ears.
