Quiet cool and fast 12/9/2019 1:44:09 AM

Pros: - Fast sustained data rates for a mechanical drive
- designed for 24/7 use
- software is great
- Respectable meantime before failure and workload rate
- Doesn't run hot

Cons: not bundled with the data recovery service like the pro which could come in handy someday

Overall Review: Put this in alongside my 14tb ironwolf pro for my home nas and so far so good. 8tb is a lot of storage and it's plenty fast. Backed up my first drive and still have room

This drive doesn't have the chirp sound that my pro drive has when the heads get parked. But my nas isn't in the same room so i never hear it anyway.

awesome drives for a basic nas or personal cloud storage, the software comes in handy for checking drive health and because its designed to be on all the time these are some really reliable drives.

Very large mechanical hard drive 12/8/2019 5:46:56 PM

Pros: This is a large capacity, 6 TB SATA 6.0 Gb/s mechanical hard drive.

The features that distinguish it from the competition are the optimizations for NAS performance: AgileArray, IronWolf Health Management, Rotational Vibration sensors, and one million hours mean time between failures.

It has a 7200 RPM rotational speed and a 256MB cache, making it a fast performer for a mechanical hard drive.

It comes with a 3-year limited warranty.

No issues noted in installation and use -- everything worked as predicted straight out of the box.

Cons: No cons noted so far. Over the past years, Seagate has had serious reliability problems with many of its mechanical drives. Hopefully they have now addressed these issues.

Overall Review: The drive is a good value at its price point. Do be aware that Seagate has had reliability problems in the past and plan accordingly -- important data kept on this drive should be backed up frequently.

As to whether I would recommend this drive -- the answer is conditional. If the drive is still operating normally and without any issues after it has been in use for a year, then I would feel more confident in recommending it. I've seen enough Seagate drives fail to need to have several good experiences before I could whole-heartedly recommend them.

Seagate Ironwolf 16TB HDD Review: 12/6/2019 6:36:44 PM

Pros: Pros: The Seagate Ironwolf 16 TB HDD is spacious, robust for a platter drive, and dense with a cache of 256 MB and a speed of 7,200 RPM on a typical SATA III power and data connection. You can really tell the platters are packed tight as this drive is a couple pounds or at least feels like it. Upon formatting in a Windows 10 x64 machine, this drive offers 14.5 TB usable. While this drive is intended for a NAS environment, I always utilize drives in a JBOD environment with manual RAID 1 so as to be more selective over data. On power-up, this drive is significantly louder than others I’ve owned, probably due to the seek arm aligning; however it presents no issue after a couple seconds.

Reads: This Ironwolf drive performed surprisingly well in all read tests I ran on it. Utilizing HDTune, speeds started around 270 MB/sec and eventually fell to 125 MB/sec at the end of the platter structure. Access time was in the 14-16ms range with CPU utilization of 8-9% on a 7940X (14-core) system. Bursts were nearly at 500 MB/sec, however the cache fills quickly on a large transfer. Placing photography work on this new drive, it’s performed very well, and while not at the speed of an SSD, the cache helps to speed up short term data. This makes it feel at times like an SSD since my particular work is serial. Manually upping the queue / threads beyond 2 starts to make any performance metrics dip seemingly square to the amount of requests, though giving this drive many small files makes performance quite impacted. For an as-expected NAS environment though, most users are requesting a mix of files or larger transfers and I saw no issue with that given an expected performance drop.

In Crystal DiskMark x64, this meant a sequential read of again, over 200 MB/sec; around 230. Yet any 4K data (where traditional HDDs struggle) relegated this drive to sub-2 MB/sec performance. As usual, if you need high performance on many tiny files, go SSD / NVMe.

Writes: The writes on this drive proved similar to the read levels. Transfers start off fast, reaching around 250 MB/sec at the start of the platter, then falling in toothed fashion down to 125 MB/sec at the end. Bursts clocked in just under 300 MB/sec for writes which is very impressive for a platter drive. Access time was about 5-6ms, with identical CPU usage. Crystal DiskMark x64 echoed similar results as above, with writes reaching a generalized 250 MB/sec, yet at 4 KB file size, falling to 2.5 MB/sec. In sending over large amounts of data to this new working drive (over 5 TB), I saw the cache benefit greatly with video files and other large pieces of data, far exceeding typical transfer rates. Sometimes I’d see bursts to this drive at over 1 GB/sec, holding for a few, then moving down to the 200 MB/sec range so it simply depends on what you’re writing to this drive in terms of file make up to accurately gauge performance.

Cons: Cons: Normally one always brings up price as a con factor. As this drive is currently offering pretty much bleeding edge capacity, the price will naturally be high. I mean, it’s not a 16 TB SSD? No cons at this time. A longer warranty past 3 years would be nice.

Overall Review: Other: Overall, I am very impressed with this drive. It doesn’t sacrifice any performance (within the constraints of what platter based drives can achieve) despite its huge space. Overlapping work data onto this drive from other SSDs and HDDs took about 7 hours to write 5+ TB over part of a day. Of course I want to imply that if one intends to use all 14+ TB of this drive, start considering backups and mirrors of one’s data as this is getting to data center levels of capacity and 16 TB is a lot of space. My particular drive arrived in a small box with Jell-O plastic cushioners and barebones, yet was in good shape. SMART and other tests showed all sectors were good. We’ll see about how this drive holds up long term, as platter drives naturally have reputations for being sporadic on their lifespan and behavior from time to time. Operating temperature in a mounting cage in a Caselabs SMA-8 Rev. A with passive cooling / venting was about 35 C continuously, reaching about 41 C while writing. This variance is only due to my room fluctuating in temperature, but the drive’s range specifies from 5-70 C operating so clearly it can handle far worse.

Doing large bursts of copying to this drive presented no issue, and I was getting advertised speeds at 33% use of the drive compared to my own diagnostics. Windows and this drive handled a few 600 GB to 2+TB copies like a champ, no issues. In terms of pricing, one may think it easier to buy two 8TB drives, but the cost for this singular drive is not too much higher and it’s nice that the pricing is still in the curve of efficiency.

So if you have a ton of work, project data, RAW files, video, B-Roll, etc., and don’t mind this cavernous volume not being an SSD, what is presented here can’t be beat, well until probably next year when Seagate and others push 18+ TB to market.

So far so good 12/6/2019 8:54:44 AM

Pros: It a lot quieter then I expected reading a lot of the people reviews. My Case hard drives are parallel and sit on rubber mounts and there is little to no vibration.

Its a large capacity drive.

Cons: Beware of the new screw mount pattern's on these large capacity drives. My Hd mount trays where only able to fit 2 screw holes on the bottom. Lucky I was able modify one tray and just use washer's and rubber washers to use all 4 screws and make a snug fit.

Overall Review: So far so good I'm using this Ironwolf 8tb to replace 5 X 2tb Seagate drives that I'm worried are about to fail and going to turn them into a raid backup for the ironwolf. I hope this will be reliable drive.

Fast and cool hard drive 12/4/2019 7:50:53 PM

Pros: Very fast sustained transfer rate: ~200MB/s, very large capacity at 8TB .
Runs cool, but not exceedingly quiet
Hopefully the NAS rated drive provides more reliable long term operation

Cons: As SSD drive is getting larger in capacity and cheaper in price, these spindle drives are getting less impressive despite a very good performance showing from this particular drive.

Overall Review: I updated a 1TB drive in my NAS system with this 8TB with 256MB cache unit, during data transfer about 289GB of data was transfered in 24 minutes which average about 200MB/s transfer rate. This is very good for an old school spindle drive. During data transfer I used USB 3.1 adapter, I could feel the driver creates a gyro-effect when the power is shut off on the unit. This would suspect the drive is less rugged compared to a SSD drive (but I guess everyone knows about that). Not sure about the drive longevity yet since I only had it for a few weeks, but so far no sign of any issue. This is a very good drive, only time will tell how reliable the drive will be in the long term.

Ironwolf 8tb 7200rpm 12/4/2019 11:21:08 AM

Pros: Fast and cheap. Running for about a year with no issues.

Cons: The drive is a little loud. If you are putting the NAS in a closet, you will never hear it.
