just got my seagate 8TB drive, very happy with it, transfer speeds are similar to a WD Blue.

I had a 7200rpm Samsung 1TB drive years ago, lasted 1 year, what a bummer. Now I have 2x SSD 256GB Samsung 850 Pro 3D Memory Technology, they feel a bit fragile, and light weight, but so far works faster than my board 6gbps Sata port can handle. USB3.0 can break that barrier. Helium is cool, but magnetic spin disk's have the days counted, is just a matter of time 3D memory will catch up with Helium storage capacity.

Purchasing non-server HDD's is wasting money, risking data. Good drive but not one for a mass array.

The transfer speeds just aren't keeping up with capacities. It takes 10-20 hours to backup 8TB.

I'm considering getting 2 of these Seagate drives to put in a Raid 1 configuration for my photo archive. They would be accessed regularly, but would speed is not really a concern. Would you recommend them for this purpose?

Reply from SPAN.COM | 07/10/2015

In a RAID 1, yes...as it will be more a case of drive cloning. It's only when you start getting into RAID levels involving larger capacities that are spread across multiple drives (RAID 0, 5, 6) that you will see performance issues with the Seagate 8TB Archive drive. Using these drives in a RAID 1 environment or a JBOD will be fine.

would this be okay for a home server pc, mainly for storage movie/tv shows, would it be okay to play it from other pcs in the house with no problems? thank you

Reply from SPAN.COM | 07/10/2015

You most certainly can. These drives are best used in a single HDD environment as well as with one more drive in a RAID 1 / Mirror.

Bought two Seagate 8TB drives back in June 2015 (left this review late to make sure - safety first!) and am very satisfied. Oddly when I purchased the drive, it was at a minimum order of 20x drives and I can see now that you can buy 1, 2, 3 etc if you want. Perhaps it was just because they were new.
Ensure you get the v2 model, as the version 2 has a better firmware.
