Performs as Promised

Strengths:

- Stays true to the read and write speeds which are very fast. 7200 RPM - I've previously used IronWolf 4TB which has been reliable for the past 4 years for me, I've had this drive for about a month now buying it on sale, I expect the same quality and longevity out of the 8TB model.

Weaknesses:

- A bit louder than the smaller drives but doesn't bother me in the slightest. - Though I expected some partition variance, beware that you only have access to roughly 7.27TB of storage out of the 8TB. I was warned that with any brand of higher storage capacity over 4TB, this would happen.

Additional Comments:

I would only buy this unit when it goes on sale, which happens more often than you think. Saved $70 CAD and so far I'm satisfied with the purchase. Be aware that because of the extra layers of disks used on this model, the unit is thicker than the 1-4 TB models which I imagine many people have for their builds. However, it will still fit comfortably in a single tray spacing between 2 others if this is your third HDD. The unit works great, the only reason I took off a star was because of how much memory I had access to (7.27TB). Besides that. the performance is great and recommended for people looking for high storage options.

Works for zfs

Strengths:

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

Weaknesses:

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.
