WD drives, especially HGST (bought by WD) are much better in quality than Seagate. The price is slightly higher though.

So I bought two of these drives a while back on a sale and ultimately they are fast and run perfectly. The only issue is that they are loud and make a lot of strange noises that you would think would signify the drive being on its last legs. These drives tend to make a lot of audible clicks and beeps when just doing basic reads/writes, especially when they wake up. There are some videos out there about this, but just keep that in mind and use your judgment. They have better warranties than standard Seagates, so that's at least worth the extra price.

I'm getting the same thing with the 8tb version of this drive that I picked up a while back. I even RMA'd one thinking it was a fluke but they all seem to make that noise. It's downright unsettling. I'm going to return mine and get another WD red. I've been using WD Reds as bulk storage drives for years and have been very happy. None of them have gone bad yet.

Yes agreed about it being unsettling. I can't understand how a modern drive could possibly be designed to have this sound issue, but here we are. Again, I think the drives are fine they do test well, but if you care about noise - avoid these things.

Never had good luck with Seagate. I have a collection of about half dozen that failed over last 8 years. Do yourself a favor and go for Toshiba or even better WD.

There's no evidence that current WD branded drives are better than Seagate. It's complicated by the fact that Backblaze hasn't been buying them lately.

If you look at 6TB, Seagate ST6000DX000 seems to be much better than WD60EFRX:

Sorry, but this "study" is a load of crap.

If you look at the original backblaze post (https://www.backblaze.com/blog/ha...s-q2-2019/) and scroll down to the 2013-2019 inclusive chart, it paints a much more realistic picture -- but even that is flawed in two ways.

1) They are not accounting for real 'time' they are counting a drive day as a day in which a backup is written to a drive. That is silly because drives can spin up and have wear even when a backup is not being written.
2) They are not accounting for the most important thing with any drive -- age. A brand new drive is not equal to a couple year old drive.

I used to swear by Seagate Drives for dependability, but 2yrs ago I switched to SSD in my NAS and will never go back to mechanical drives again. Too many failures and to rebuilt your Raid after a failure, you can have a child before its done.
