Always haters in every HD thread, but I'm a big fan of Ironwolf drives and never had any issues with their enterprise SAS drives.

Slightly drooling at 12TB capacity as I look at my multi pools of 10tb hard drives in my NAS. Then I realize they are seagates and I would be warranty swapping them every year cause all they do is fail! God I hate seagate with a passion not one of their hard drives lasted longer than 2 years for me in the last 8 years.
I agree, my Seagate 256gb flash drive is still going strong after 10 years

Well whos fault is it that they suck? My WD at least last 4+ years on the minimum before they fail!

I have had a dozen or so Seagate drives over the years, and have had fewer of them go bad than WD drives, if you exclude the fiasco that was their 2TB drive when that first came out.

I guess it is all down to luck of the draw overall? Both manufacturers have had their ups and downs, and Seagate does give a lot of people a bad taste in their mouth since the 2TB days, and perhaps I've just been fortunate with my Ironwolfs and Barracudas (knock on wood), but I personally will go either WD or Seagate depending on price/warranty duration.

Just my two cents. Regardless of anything else, drive failures suck, and I trust no drive fully, which is why I have dual drive redundancy on my array.

I have Seagate Barracudas in my NAS and I think I've only lost two drivers since 2010. I consider that a win.

Never again Seagate. I'm not falling for your good prices with lots of thumbs up on SD's. Lessons have been learned.

Honestly, you could be right. I'm not sure I can remember back that far either. Haha

Been using these since before they had the fancy Ironwolf name & only had 3 fail out of 50ish. Drives get retired after 5 years though. Used about half in always-on, constant use systems, and the other half as removable storage.

It was their 3tb drives. I still have a huge stack (30+) that never made it back for various reasons still waiting to be destroyed. Pure garbage.
