HGST Ultrastar He8 8TB Hard Drive

TCOptimized™ – Increasing Storage Efficiency to Drive Down Data Center TCO
We recognize the growing pressures that data centers face. Volume is
expanding, operating costs are rising while budgets remain flat. Lowering the
total cost of ownership (TCO) has become the focus of data center architects.
Ultrastar He8 provides a unique TCO value proposition and delivers greater
storage efficiency with breakthroughs in capacity, power efficiency and
performance. This HelioSeal hard drive achieves up to 3X higher random write
performance than the prior generation, Ultrastar He6, thanks to HGST media
cache architecture, a disk-based caching technology. Designed to handle
workloads of up to 550TB per year, He8 offers a 12Gb/s SAS (6Gb/s SATA)
interface for easy integration into high performance data centers. Features like
Rebuild Assist dramatically reduce RAID rebuild times and maintain system
performance during the rebuild process. Learn more in our Rebuild Assist
technical brief.

Data Security with Industry-Leading Quality and Reliability
Compliance and privacy requirements drive the need for increased data security.
Ultrastar He8 offers security and encryption options to protect data from
unauthorized use. Instant Secure Erase (ISE) models expedite drive redeployment
and retirement. Encryption models protect data with hardware-based encryption,
including a Trusted Computing Group (TCG) option with FIPS 140-2 certification,
Level 2. The Ultrastar He8 extends HGST’s long-standing tradition of reliability
leadership with a 2.5M-hour MTBF rating. HGST’s drive reliability and security
options also help lower data center TCO.

So far works great, but seems to be refurb 7/20/2020 4:35:29 AM

Pros: - The drive has performed with no problems in the two months or so that I've used it in my Synology NAS
- It's actually running with the lowest temperature of my three drives, compared to the WD and Seagate

Cons: - I was considering buying a second drive so checked the comments again and realized I missed the complaints of it being a refurb. I checked the S.M.A.R.T. data and sure enough, this drive has 38,000+ hours on it already.

Overall Review: It seems that this would be a perfectly reasonable choice of drive if the seller simply stated it's a refurb. I would have even considered buying it as a refurb, but I don't like finding out after the fact.

Great product, unless the seller send you a used drive! 6/10/2020 1:38:50 PM

Pros: - its a great hard drive

Cons: - some sellers are sending you used drives, in my case I got 3 drives in 2 different shipments and they all have around 35000 hours of run time according to smart. I send everything back.

Overall Review: Do the homework, make sure to check the smart state of the drives.

NO WARRANTY 5/20/2020 1:19:27 PM

Pros: When it works, it works.

Cons: When drive fails outside of the return window, the manufacturer will say "The drive is not valid for warranty through HGST. Please return product to your point of purchase."

Overall Review: The warranty is false advertising to say the least. This is a complete con and rip off. I was cheated. This also wasted roughly 2 hours of my time trying to get a replacement that the manufacturer refuses to give me, even though I have proof of warranty and purchase.

They claim that ONLY the place of purchase can fix this issue.

This is a Refurbished Drive! 4/23/2020 3:54:46 PM

Pros: Fast shipping, as is normal for Newegg products.
Functional - so far. RAID array still rebuilding.

Cons: This item is described as New and not as Refurbished.
Drive's S.M.A.R.T. data shows a 'power-on-time' of 32,000+ hours. Manufacture date is Mar 2015.
In the "More Buying Options' section, additional drives are listed by the same seller as 'New' for the same price.
I consider this to be blatantly misleading.

Overall Review: In the past decade I've always had good shopping experiences with products sold directly by Newegg.
Newegg Marketplace products are a crapshoot.

These drives are Refurbs 3/23/2020 8:23:28 AM

Pros: Drives work as expected, plug them in, format, load data.

Cons: The poweron hours were at 80 days. This product does not show that it had been previously used.
A separate drive (which was promptly returned) had several small dings on the top surface.

Overall Review: It works, but I'm very annoyed that the seller choose not to advertise that these are refurbished devices.

Great Product 6/4/2019 9:34:58 AM

Pros: Nothing exciting. After all, it's just a hard drive. I popped it into my Synology NAS and now it serves up my files. I don't think about it which, I guess, is a very good sign.

Cons: None yet. I'll have to see how long it lasts.

Overall Review: This purchase was through a third party vendor. It was the same as my NewEgg experience: quick ship, etc. One difference is that warranty is administered though this third party and not NewEgg. I have no idea what that is like. I have 8 of these in my NAS but I'm not sure they all came from the same vendor since they were bought a couple at a time.

DOA 7/17/2018 6:54:30 AM

Pros: Attractive specs.

Cons: Noisy when spinning.
Never worked.

Overall Review: This never worked. At the time I got it, I assumed that my computers SATA interface was too slow/old for this fast drive, so I set it aside for the future. Now I have a new state-of-the-art computer, and I find the drive doesn’t work with it either.

Obviously, nearly two years after I got it, too late to return though perhaps I should try.

Worst. Support. Ever. from HGST 7/10/2018 2:15:21 PM

Pros: The drive itself is normally OK. A solid-performing 8TB SAS unit.

Cons: We had an issue with several dozen of these drives going offline randomly with some Avago RAID controllers (nothing too weird). A firmware fix resolved the issue, but getting firmware out of HGST is an absolute nightmare. Normally (normally being the last decade or two) you go on the web and download the firmware, flash it, and have a nice day. Not so much here. Nothing is on the public Internet. Be prepared to spend at least an hour on the phone and then wait a few *days( to get a resolution, because the phone support people can't do anything other than point you to a web page (and in my case, not even the correct web page). Yes, it takes days to get firmware updates. It's like a really bad tech support solution from the 1970s, right here in 2018! The only thing they could do worse is send out the firmware via snail mail on a floppy disk.
