Drive failure

Pros: Worked great while it did

Cons: Died in under a year

Other Thoughts: Got two for a NAS, rock solid for about 7 months. A wee bit disappointed though since I've had non NAS drives last a lot longer in a similar setting.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Anonymous,

We regret to hear about your experience with the 1 TB IronWolf drive. We’re certainly sorry you’ve encountered this circumstance. However, we’re hoping to lend a helping hand and offer some assistance which may resolve the issue. From what we understand, the drive isn't working as it did before.

In your situation, we would suggest the following steps:

Try connecting the drive to another port on the motherboard.
You may also try using different SATA cables.
Verify if the drive detects within the BIOS.
Try connecting the drive to another computer to see how it reacts.

Performing these steps can rule out a problem with the drive itself. There can be situations where the problem is related to other things which can affect the drive. Please follow the troubleshooting steps in the link below:

http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/006183en?language=en-us

If the issue persists, please create a case with our technical support team so we can further investigate and explore available options:

Seagate Support

Its a Hard Drive!

Pros: Hard drives aren't particularly exciting, and outside of superfast SSDs or failed drives, there usually is very little to say about them. I'll see what I can do here...

The drive claims to have enhanced features to keep it extra stable (anti-vibration), and though I can't really say if it quells vibrations, I think it has a positive effect on noise - this drive is practically silent, even when working. When installed alongside several (7200 RPM) drives in my main rig, I couldn't hear this drive over the CPU fan, let alone the other drives spinning away.

Speeds are right in line with what you would expect from a 5900 RPM drive; somewhere in the 150-160 MB/sec range for read and write. Certainly won't blow you away, especially not on its own, but drives like this are designed to be set up in RAID to provide power and redundancy, not flat out speed.

Cons: Historically, I have been a fan of WesternDigital drives, having experienced only one failure over the course of 20+ drives and nearly 15 years. I was a little disappointed to see that this line of drives only comes with a 3 year warranty where most if not all WD drives come with a 5 year warranty. I have only had to warranty a drive once, but its nice to know that the protection is there if you ever need it.

Really, with only a few weeks of usage under it's belt, it is hard to find many faults in the drive. Long term reliability is where slower drives like this tend to shine and I anticipate the same from this unit.

Other Thoughts: I ran this drive in my main desktop for a few weeks, where it saw duty storing and moving a couple hundred GB of photos and music. My xbox one soon filled up (4 games fills up a 500 GB drive!) so I bought a cheap enclosure and have this drive hooked up to the xbox via USB 3.0. Once formatted correctly, the console picked it up and had no problems reading or writing to it.

As I mentioned above, outside of super fast drives or ones that die, there is rarely much to say about them. Seagate has a long history of building good drives, and while I fail to see the need for 20 different lines of drives for different uses (server, video security, etc) if it works, it works.

Seagate IRONWOLF NAS Drive

Pros: A trusted brand, engineered for a specific job, Available as a 5900 or 7200RPM drive and in multiple capacities to fit your needs, 64MB Cache. (on a side note: Hey Seagate, I love the Icons that have been developed of each of the families of drives!)

Cons: Access time does take a small hit on the 5200 RPM unit but for most users like me for home entertainment purposes it will perform well enough. If you require faster access times just go with the 7200 RPM unit instead, but then you have more spin-up time.

Other Thoughts: Rather than copy and paste all the results from my testing I will simply say that the specs that Seagate lists on this drive are within a reasonable approximation of the data that I acquired during my testing. Placed this drive into my RAID array and it went to work without any trouble or further intervention from me. Once in the Raid case it is virtually silent, no more noisy than any of the other drives that turn at 5900 R's . I have always purchased the Seagate Surveillance grade HDD's to use in my HTPC system arrays and they have always worked well for me and I have had some in use for more than 5 years now. Time will only tell how the IRONWOLF holds up, hence I dropped the 5th egg. I will say that it has to be proven to earn that last egg. I have always preferred Seagate over others, I hope this one maintains my trust, for the time being all going well!

A New Breed or Just a New Label?

Pros: It's quiet in use and when idle - just like the Seagate Pipeline drives we've had for a couple of years.

Vibration and noise are truly minimal when standing upright in a hard drive dock on a shelf. One might think that when installed and attached in a horizontal position within a PC case it would be virtually silent, and that would not surprise me.

Used as a single drive i obtained the following results:

CrystalDiskMark Sequential Read/Write in USB 3.0 HDD dock: 175/175 MB/sec.

HDTune Read in USB 3.0 HDD dock: Max. 179 - Min. 77 - Avg. 141 MB/sec.

Cons: Anti-vibration and anti-noise features appear to provide similar results as our existing Seagate 2TB drives which are not "Ironwolf" branded. As previously mentioned these are good features, but are they really new features or simply dressed up with a new name and colorful label?

When a Seagate home server drive i reviewed in the past failed after a few months the company politely refused to replace it, stating that it was a review sample and they wouldn't cover it. Suspecting it may have been the small circuit board installed adjacent to the drive in a poorly ventilated case, i asked to buy a replacement board as a spare part. Again, they declined. As a result, this new drive will need to prove itself over a few years before earning a full 5 eggs rating.

Other Thoughts: Regarding this Ironwolf's 5900 rpm rotation speed I have noticed elsewhere that some users have criticized the drive for not being faster. Yet, they have all praised it as being a good performer while operating quietly. If you think about it i'm sure you will realize that if the drive is quiet, smooth and fast enough for your needs then the rotational speed doesn't matter. In fact, 5900 rpm may well enjoy a longer life than a 7200 rpm drive, who knows?

Since the Ironwolf is nice and quiet i wanted to see how this "always-on" type of drive might fare as a DVR replacement drive. Set it to record 3 TV programs at once using Windows Media Center while at the same time using it to stream previously recorded video to 3 other computers over our home network. The streaming was smooth and glitch-free. The recordings which were in progress exhibited a momentary macro-block pixelation glitch when replayed later. These glitches coincided with the onset of streaming requests from the other computers. I see that as more of a momentary throttling of the network by our router than as a direct shortcoming of the Ironwolf drive. Still, that type of glitch does not normally occur when using our usual Pipeline drive or a WD Red which we occasionally employ for recording.

Seagate's Sanguine Future

Pros: * Seagate seems to be stepping up their game by releasing a slew of new category-specific Hard Drives that are tailored for specific usage environments. Having been a Western Digital fanboy for more than a decade, I am excited by Seagate becoming a worthy competitor for the specialized storage market. I can confidently proclaim that I’m still a WD devotee; however, I have a more open mind when deciding a HDD. It very well may mean that Seagate now isn’t just the cheaper option, but worth considering when implementing a new NAS, Surveillance System, and Gaming PC. It’s an invigorating time for both Seagate and consumers alike. *

- The IronWolf is obviously suited for NAS configurations. Since I was only able to test one drive, I couldn’t set up a RAID Array. It’s evidently for RAID configurations or multiple 24/7 drive use situations. Setting it up is as easy as any other bare hard drive. I connected it to a HDD Dock on my desktop and formatted it to GPT and NTSF. With 931GB, I connected to my Linksys 3200ACM router via USB 3.0 and a 2-slotted NAS Bay. The process of moving files is quick enough. Since the benchmarks I ran don’t accurately display the performance of this drive, I did not include them. The IronWolf is noticeably slower than my RAID 1 configuration of WD Red Pro NAS drives, but that’s not accurately comparing the competition as Pro drives are about 50% more expensive than the entry-level 5400 RPM drives. In the price-per-performance comparison, Seagate beats out its competition by offering the same cost of a 5400RPM drive at the IronWolf’s 5900 RPM. Hence, Seagate’s IronWolf is currently the best bang for the buck.

- Seagate has implemented Rotational Vibration Sensors which they claim mitigates the common issue of noisy NAS bays. Possibly due to this, the IronWolf is indeed noticeably quieter than other drives, about 3 decibels less. It emits a hushed hum noise and barely vibrates. Temperatures while in use got to a manageable 42 degrees, which will vary depending on your bay.

- The IronWolf boasts an impressive one million mean-time-between-failures rate and a three year warranty. Everything about the IronWolf—its specs, firmware, AgileArray software, power management, dual-plane balancing–lends itself to be right at home in a heavy workload, 24/7 usage environment.

Cons: - All of the IronWolf drives up until the 6TB ones spin at 5900 RPM. It would have been nice to have all of them clock at 7200 RPM or have an option for the less spacious drives to spin faster at a higher cost. NAS speed is imperative for my uses, so I was a little disappointed by the slower spin options of the drives less than 6TB. However, it’s worth noting that WD’s directly comparable drives according to price per performance are 5400 RPM. As I mention in the Pros section, Seagate is technically beating out the competition by providing slightly faster 5900 RPM drives. Nonetheless, it would benefit consumers if Seagate would implement a faster RPM SKU for lower storage drives.

Other Thoughts: - There are two separate IronWolf drive choices: the 5900 RPM from 1TB to 4TB in 1TB increments and the 7200 RPM models that go up from 6TB to 10TB in 2TB increments. It’s great now that there are easily obtainable consumer options of high capacity drives.

* Overall, I’m impressed and delighted by Seagate’s new line of hard drives. I look forward to getting my hands on the other versions. Next time I upgrade my NAS or am looking for a HDD, Seagate will be one of the top contenders. *

Nice NAS Drive

Pros: -- 3 yr warranty
-- transfer rate
-- quiet

Cons: (None noted)

Other Thoughts: When connected to an Orico dock, Windows 10 immediately recognized the drive needed partitioning and popped up the prep screen. Then through disk management it formatted in 6 seconds! So the drive was ready to go in less than a minute. Seagate has incorporated several vibration dampening technologies, including "remote vibration sensors," "dual-plane balancing" (offset weights placed on top and bottom or rotor plates), and built-in error recovery. Accordingly there is only the slightest “hum” when holding your palm on top of the drive. When moving a large mix of files (over 60GB) to it, it quickly reached and sustained over 28MB/s transfer rate (likely helped by the 64MB cache) and finished in about 20 minutes. That’s the fastest conventional HD performance I’ve had when connected externally. Even during activity, it is a very quiet drive and barely gets warm. It should perform admirably in a RAID drive for multiple users. But before giving 5 stars to any drive, I would really need to see how it performs in 3-5 years! But the 3-year warranty shows some confidence.
