Seagate Exos 7E8 vs 5E8

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'd like to know some relevant differences between this drives besides MTBF.

7E8 model ST8000NM0055 (MTBF 2,000,000 hr)

5E8 model ST8000AS0003 (MTBF 800,000 hr)

5E8 model is formerly known as an Archive HDD, both are 8TB so obviously I want to use them for archiving purposes.

7E8 seems generally better choice, but everywhere I look 5E8 costs more than 7E8 which is quite confusing.

Do you have an experience with this drives, and/or recommendations?
