As long as I don’t have to sell my kidney for them they might be worth looking into. But if they cost more then Seagate 8tb HDD then it will be a lost cause.

I want some reliability survey data in drives bigger than 5TB in next two years.

Probability of data loss is much more relevant than storage/U$ ratio .

As long as it is used for Archive like the Seagate 8tb then I think it would last but as main drive - using drives for storage for this change reduces the lifespan. Use SSD for main drive functions but leave the HDD for archive purpose until they make SSD same capacity of HDD then we can come back to revisit this.

Yea and the NSA, Putin FSB would love you for that as well. I trust online storage as much as what comes out where the sun doesn’t shine. :Z Considering all the hacks and data thief that isn’t for me.

I agree. SSD is so much better as system drive.

I’m curious about this big drives in NAS environment. Blackblaze recently swap smaller drives to 8TB from Seagate and Western Digital. Like I said before the reliability is my major concern. I want to avoid fiascos like Seagate 7200.12 and 3TB drives ( very high failure rate with sudden death ).

So we can now have Huge HDD with All that Storage in them But when we Format we Lose Hundreds of MB in the process. So why can’t they give us HDD with a tad extra in them so we get what we pay for…ROBBING us Blind they are.
