Seagate IronWolf HDD 10TB Review

3 posts in this topic

The new Seagate IronWolf HDD is designed for all types of NAS use cases, including those that leverage multi-RAID environments, with capacities spanning up to 10TB. Seagate has had a lot of success with their purpose-built drives in the past, such as the Seagate EnterpriseSeagate NAS, and Seagate SkyHawk Surveillance HDDs. And their new line is certainly specced to follow in their footsteps. Featuring multi-tier caching technology, this uniquely named drive is built to handle the constant vibration that is inherent in 24/7 NAS spindle drives and thrives under heavy user-workload rates in a high data-traffic network.

For this (and all other reviews of products that might be used in home NAS / servers), it would really help to measure noise and also comment on the noise characteristics. Measurement of actual power draw might also be interesting. Noise is a key factor for home use though.

It's something we've considered but don't have a great answer. In our lab, we don't hear any of them, but we have 5 racks of gear ;) I do understand though if you're putting a NAS anywhere other than a closet or basement, noise may be a concern.
