Seagate STCU8000100 8TB NAS 4-Bay Network Storage
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Happy with the NAS Hard drives 08/25/2014

This review is from: Seagate STCU8000100 8TB NAS 4-Bay Network Storage

Pros: 8GBs of storage
Very little heat
Drives seem very fast
Multiple user friendly

Cons: Lack of documentation
Wrong web URL for setup (I mean, seriously?)
Only warranted for 3 year

Other Thoughts: Well, it's all the about the setup which is done automatically on line. That is once you find it. Not sure I like the "cloud" setting up my stuff. After the initial surprise at the lack of documentation and web support it somehow does work. And I must admit quite well. I've practically forgotten about it, which is a good thing.

Not much more to say, it does what it's supposed to do...hold a lot of data, connect to my network (private and public) serve and backup files. A bit concerned about only a 3 year warranty for an archive product. Time will tell.

At the moment I am very happy with Seagate STCU8000100 8TB NAS 4-Bay Network Storage

Seagate ST4000NC000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Extremely quiet
Gives off very little heat
Energy efficient

Cons: Expensive (but does have extra encryption/secure erase feature)

Other Thoughts: Perfect for archived storage as the 5900RPM is not the fastest though admittedly the overall throughput seemed perfectly adequate. So, yes, a fine large HDD for a NAS array. Photographers and video editors should be ecstatic. Recording of surveillance systems, etc, you get the idea.

I transferred some files and programs from one computer to another using this drive in sneaker net mode and had no issues with the data.

And security concerns are eased with the self encryption/decryption built in. I do however, wish Seagate would guarantee their enterprise drives for 5 years.

G.SKILL Trident X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C9D-8GTXD
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Set to run 2400MHz @ 9-11-11-31-1T @ 1.65 volts in BIOS
Ran single module at a time through Memtest 5.01. Passed 5 passes each. Not a single error.

What more can I say?

Cons: XMP is set to run a 2T CR but since it runs a 1T CR it's not really a con.

Other Thoughts: This is SDRAM sweetness. As advertised.
After I'm done overclocking the CPU and am confident of stability, I have a strong hunch I'll be able to goose the Trident modules a bit more. :)

BIOS 1.5
CPU: Intel i7 4700K @ 4.0 (while testing)
RAM: G.Skill Trident X 2400 9-11-11-31 (XMP) 2x4GB
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro - Win7 x64
GPU: MSI GTX770 Lightning
PSU: Corsair AX860i
