Seagate Enterprise NAS ST6000VN0001 6TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: - 6TB 7200 RPM 128MB Cache
- 5 Year Warranty
- Price

Cons: At the time of posting this Seagates compatibility list on their site says that the 'Seagate Enterprise NAS HDD' 5 and 6 TB drives ST5000VN0001/ST6000VN0001 don't work on 'Seagate NAS PRO' bays???

Other Thoughts: This is just so people know maybe a firmware update will change that or maybe its a site error? Seems unusual since all the other enterprise NAS models are fully supported but for now its important to know!

Seagate  STDD10000100  10TB  NAS Pro 2-Bay Network Storage
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Perfect transfer rates with gigabit connection, as fast as it would be if the drives were installed in your computer.

- No disconnections or stability issues during testing.

- Great way to cloud store many multimedia devices can even upload data off androids/iOS devices through Seagates Sdrive application.

- 2 Gigabit Ethernet Ports, 2x USB3 Ports, 1xUSB2 (For network printers, external HDD etc). Dual 1.7GHZ 64bit CPU & 2GB RAM

- Ready to be setup as a FTP server, email server, media streaming server even download box to download files from urls or even torrents and still much more.

- 10TB version has dual ST5000NC0002 5TB Terascale V2 Hard Drives assuming*** its at 5900RPM, performs nearly the same as 7200RPM with less power usage and it's more stable allowing a much longer warranty.

- DoA's should be impossible (minus any applicable shipping/handling mishaps) since all Seagate's NAS's are purportedly tested extensively before leaving manufacturing.

- 60W PSU, entire thing uses less energy than a average incandescent light bulb.

Cons: **Not much of a fanbase for Seagates nas's yet if any, so unfortunately there isnt much... if any.. third party apps yet, and relatively few official Seagate ones.

Odd price differences: Diskless 2-bay costs $350, 4-bay $500, 6-bay $599.
Turns out the motherboards of a similar model 2-bay vs a similar model 6-bay are nearly the same, so the 4-6bay only have 4+HDD RAID options bigger fans and a mini lcd status screen that just ends up being a flashy waste of electricity for the most part. So I'm quite certain it costs Seagate no more than $50 more to produce 4-6 bay instead yet it costs 250$ more for a 6 bay 'just cause', then again who really needs more bays with the size of today's drives.

***Seagate's websites have no updates on the ST5000NC0002 drives that the the 10tb bay comes with, they have a strange lack of existence in info online anywhere at the moment, i was hoping to find that has 128mb cache but i have no idea.

Other Thoughts: If your on a tight budget and need a large amount of fast accessible cloud storage this one with 10TB should be more than enough for nearly anyone even most small businesses.

If that's not enough you'll need to pay the extra for more bays, you could theoretically try getting a diskless model and Seagates 8tb archive drives unfortunately these Seagate NAS Pro bays seem to be extremely picky about what will and will not work.

Make sure that its on Seagates compatibility list... Especially since at the time of writing this Seagates compatibility list on their site says that the 'Seagate Enterprise NAS HDD' (ST5000VN0001-ST6000VN0001) 5 and 6 TB drives... don't work on 'Seagate NAS PRO' bays?? Why even call them NAS drives if they won't work in the latest NAS bays Seagate offers?

Overall this bay itself is amazing and deserves 5/5 as it does all its supposed to do and much much more, the cons Ive listed aren't major for the most part, the insane 5/6tb enterprise nas drive thing isn't relating to this item at all hence other thoughts.
