I know right. But at the same time NAS is supposed to run 24/7 and keep data safe?

Opinions on these Seagate NAS @ $119 vs. WD Red @ $150 for a Synology NAS (DS1815+) used as a media server?

I am partial to WD, but I need 8 of them, so it would be a $240 overall difference in pricing.

I agree but that is what multiple paritys and backups are for. Just like the guy said above ^^^ if you buy 10 of these at the price of 8 WD reds. That means you can put 2 on the shelf...

Seagate's failure rate is completely normal. These statistics are also including the infamously awful 2TB seagate that destroyed their reputation in recent years.

It should be mentioned that a lot of people discredit blackblaze, primarily because they don't buy an equal number of HDDs per manufacterer/model. At the very least you should be able to see that Seagate's failure rate within normal expectations.

Blackblaze's primary drive of choice is now the 4TB desktop HDD.

I've just bought a couple of those internal 4TB Seagates in the last month to replace an almost 6 year old 1TB WD and only barely a 2 year old 3TB Seagate. Wasn't happy about that 3TB dying sooner than I expected but hoping these new ones last longer. I also got a 3TB Seagate NAS like this one and it's handy as fark, glad I picked it up.

WARNING: If you order more than one the coupon code reduces. I tried to order 2 and coupon dropped to $18 for a total of $36 off. Changed and made two separate orders and they both worked at $20.

I have few of these drive in my Qnap Nas unit and one in my septerate sercurity camera setup and it works fine. These are just WD fan boys. I have never had trouble with Seagate drives. WD drives always break about six months after the warranty runs out. I still have working seagate drives that are long past there warrantys but just big enought to use for NAS backup. Just never buy the green drives from either WD or seagate.

I own 5 of these. 4 running 24/7 in Raid 5 configuration with 15 min idle set up (using Ubuntu) since last Black Friday. 5th HDD is being used as external HDD occasionally. I got 2 from Newegg and 3 from Jet. One of the HDDs from Newegg arrived DOA. It took them 3 weeks to replace mine.

I know 6-7 months and 5 HDDs don't really speak for the reliability and quality of the product itself, but following is how I made my decision over WD Red or HGST.

I looked at Letters0's link on backblaze and other sources when I purchased mine back then too. I noticed even though exact same model (ST4000VN000) is not listed on backblaze, the ones with higher failure rate were the 2TB-3TB range models. 4TB models had around 3% failure. Since I already knew I was going to do Raid 5 and knew that I have at least some protection against total data loss due to single HDD failing by using Raid 5, I took my chances and bought this one over WD Red and Seagate's own 2-3TBs. At that time, WD Red had good deals too, but I kept missing it. I waited long enough and just settled with this one for about $150 less compared to WD Red with regular price. (Plus, Jet messed up my order and sent me 3rd HDD and told me to just keep it when I only paid for 2. It turned out really cheap for me).

Anyhow, yeah. That's just my experience, and God only knows when these HDD will fail....
Hope it doesn't happen and good luck to you all.

Edit: $150 less for all 4 HDDs
