[QUOTE=coolcolors;2785267]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.[/QUOTE]
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 ).
