Drive is noisy to the point it is unbearable to be in the same room. 12/10/2019 12:30:09 PM

Cons: Extremely Loud!
I'm an IT professional with 16 years as a systems admin using Mac and Linux desktop and servers. I have never encountered a drive this noisy that wasn't dead or dying.

Overall Review: The drive is noisy to the point of being unbearable to be in the same room with. My first impression was the drive was DOA. The only solution is to update the firmware which requires booting from a thumb drive and using a linux shell without clear instructions.

bad image / false presentation 10/22/2019 4:26:19 PM

Pros: - Great disk

Cons: false image the one that they publish, the hard disk does not come in that design, it comes as a normal and common normal hard disk, for the price and the capacity,

I paid because I saw it in videos and it looked different prettier

it looks awful I don't like it nor can I show it with my drawer

Overall Review: -good performance,

-Bad and false presentation, nothing to do when I have it in my hands

FAST! 10/16/2019 11:10:34 AM

Overall Review: Set 2 of these in Raid 0 formation which yielded better perf. I've been using this HDD with my Plex server for Home media storage and delivery and haven't had any problems with 4k 10 bit content as well.

So far, so good 7/12/2019 11:55:07 AM

Pros: Great cache capacity
Better performance than I expected

Cons: Noise level above the roof

Overall Review: Overall, it's doing the job as advertised, but I wouldn't recommend them for a quiet config.
These are enterprise disks, meant to be hosted in servers, in a bay, in a datacenter. No optimization regarding noise level was made whatsoever, and boy, they're loud.

Initial Test 4/4/2019 10:29:50 PM

Pros: Fast
Large Capacity
Low vibration for an 8TB drive spinning at 7200RPM
Cool considering the capacity
QUIET

Cons: None

Overall Review: I've only done an initial simple test to ensure it's working correctly.

I know others have said it's noisy. Mine isn't. Yes, there is an audible clicking when the drive first powers on; that has never ever ever been a concern of mine since I'm not using the computer when a drive initializes.

It got a little warm after writing 150GB to it. I did 3 separate writes at 50GB each using 2GB files, using Win7. They were spaced out in time so the drive would run for a while. I didn't run test software. After writing 50GB the write speed was recorded at 216MB/s. This is easily the fastest drive I have. Since Windows 7 shows an average, I can't say that it was writing @ 216MB/s after 50GB was written, I can only say the average write time for writing 50GB at the beginning of the disk is 216MB/s using large files. For a 50GB write I imagine the effects of buffering are still showing in the average (not much), but this is a real world scenario, which testing a drive using other software doesn't really give very well. It gives numbers for you to evaluate the drive in relation to other drives, but real world is writing files from one place to another and then using that data, so of COURSE buffering comes into play for actual drive usage.

The heat is minimal for an 8TB drive spinning at 7200RPM, and it's comparable to the WD NAS 8TB drive that spins at 5400 RPM and doesn't give nearly the performance. Maybe a touch warmer.

I can't speak to reliability since I've only run it for about 1 hr.

When finding this on sale, it's worth every penny in my book.

Great drive! Fast and reportedly very reliable 3/10/2019 9:34:36 AM

Pros: - Value-wise, 6TB is a sweet spot
- Fast

Cons: - Mine was manufactured Nov 2016, so I upgraded the firmware

Overall Review: - It has only been a day since it is mounted in my NAS server, so far so good. I is NOT running warm, nor being noisy as some reviewers noted.
- It really looks like it is built to last.
- The firmware it came with was SN02 which I upgraded right away to SN05.

No problems so far.

Solid zero fail drives 2/2/2019 5:36:05 PM

Pros: Have many of the 1TB, 2TB and the 4TB sizes of this series in a number of 24/7 commercial servers. Zero failures in over a year.
Yes they make a bit of noise and use some power but only to normal levels expected in a server drive farm.

Cons: None if you are looking for a commercial quality drive for 24/7 server use

Overall Review: Can not understand all the negative reviews.
From my experience that are prefect for what they are intended, rock solid server use.
