Works for zfs

Submitted on Monday, June 22, 2020

Strengths of the product

These aren't SMR drives, according to the published specs, so they work with zfs. 3 year warranty.

Weaknesses of the product

Slightly loud. "8tb" is only about 7.2tb because he manufacturers are allowed to say a TB isn't a TB. Buying disks as large as this makes for expensive backups since your backup drive has to be just as big.

Additional Comments

They're basically entry level enterprise grade drives so I suspect two in a mirrored zfs array will be pretty reliable. We'll see. You'd think you'd get a fat 1gb cache at this price.
