If you're thinking about shucking, reports are that it comes with a ST8000AS0002 SMR drive which may not be the best choice for raid or NAS use.

Update: New reports are that it may be the ST8000DM005 BarraCuda Pro.

That's great. Perhaps being more clear would help as well. While you went into more detail with one mentioned drive, you still talked about 2 drives. Then you referred to "the above drive" three times... there were two mentioned drives above all of them... maybe saying "former drive" would have been clearer.

I appreciate you attempting to provide information, and I was simply trying to make sure I was understanding that you meant the barracuda and not the SMR archive drive when you said, "above drive".

A snarky response was unnecessary. You could have said, "yeah, the barracuda" ...

The bacblaze statistics need some scrutiny. If you look at the tiny sample size of the high failure rates it could all be from the same lot. If you have a lot with a flaw yes it skews the failure rate. I'm guessing that is the issue. That is why RAID was invented.

Yep, bring on WD or HGST or virtually anything else. The fact that this is Seagate kills it completely for me.

Several reports on egg that this contains the Seagate 8TB BarraCuda Pro 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 256MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Hard Drive (ST8000DM005) .
YMMV.

Earlier reports were it contained the archive drives, three reports in the Q&A section report the above drive. Also some recent reports in the review section report the above.

My last two purchases contained the above as well.

You list two different possible drives in that post, then repeatedly refer to the "above drive" ... which drive are you talking about?

how does the barracuda pro 7200 drive compare to the WD Red that everyone was wanting/shucking out of the enclosure? seems comparable and better than the archive drives they were using previously. might be more interested in this drive now esp that its from newegg with no tax which makes it a slightly hotter deal. thanks for the info Smilie

Seagate has been more reliable than western digital for me. Seagate also kept their warranty at 5 years when the entire industry went to 3 years. (They changed it a few years ago, perhaps cause of the 3tb failure rate.) Therefore seagate supported their drives much longerthan anyone else. They stood behind thier drives more than any other company, therefore i supported them.

My easy store has caused numerous problems. Makes my computer slow to load, internet doesn't work and causes a startup program to crash. I have to disconnect the drive before I start my computer to eleviate the problems,then it takes minutes before the drive is usable. I have changed the settings for the drive to "run faster" indexing is off. Drive is still super slow to load. My Seagate is no issue.

I'm taking a chance on this. If it's a ST8000DM005, Synology formally supports it and it'll go in my NAS. If it the archive drive, I'll use it in some other manner or sell it. I'll report back when I open it up.

All depends on your history and experience. Ill never buy wd and take seagate over them every time. My dead drive pile has 2 old 2-3tb seagates and 10-12 wd greens and no other brands across 10-15 years.
