You can, but I wouldn't. Stick with something designed to be ran in a NAS environment.

This would work as an excellent desktop workstation drive, either primary or secondary where theres a lot of large files you need to use locally and not over a network or just need to loaf your hard drive up.

Serious gaming, video editing, etc.
False. These are just fine for a NAS as long as you're only doing 4 or less drives.

You could, but this would largely depend on the size and count of the streams.

I've had my eye on the X300 drives for a while now. Performance is good but I hesitate to buy because of the reports of this being a noisy drive.

For X300 owners, do you consider the drive to be too loud?
I have two of the X300 4TB and one of the X300 5TB. They're not much that much louder than other drives I've used. Compared to the WD Red 8TB 5400RPM or older Seagate 4TB 7200 RPM drives, it isn't really noticeable.

Still far quieter than any Quantum Fireball SCSI drive lol. Now those were noisy!

See Exhibit A:

As far as the pricing goes, this is a decent deal for a faster 8TB drive. However, if performance isn't needed, then go for the shuckable WD external 8TB instead and save an extra 30 bucks. Those White/Red label WD 8TB 5400 RPM drives are a fantastic deal when on sale.

If you need the performance, then X300 will be the better buy. Otherwise shucking a WD EasyStore 8TB is fairly easy and you save 30 bucks.

I would say get an SSD, but you don't get 8TB SSDs without dropping a thousand bucks (at least). Getting one of these and setting up a cached partition will give you all the storage and speed you, (or even your grandkids) would ever need
Not even close to the speed of an NVMe drive nor is it all the storage anyone would ever need. Not even close.

I've been using a pair of 3TB 7200RPM Toshibas in my NAS for over 5 years. They've never given me problems and can write at over 1gbps. I only use them for system backups and imaging. Outside of scheduled backups, they are usually spun down to 0.

What's a reasonable size for the cached partition?

short answer is yes, it can be used in NAS devices. but for 24/7 use, think about the 7200 rpm speed. i would think these will run hotter than the usual 5400 or 5900 rpm drives. in terms of perfomance, sure it's faster if you were to benchmark them and compare the numbers but for home use, the difference may not be noticeable. i wouldn't go with these for 24/7 NAS use just because of the higher temps. i don't have one, don't have experience with 7200 rpm drives in NAS devices. i'm basing my info from people that shared their experiences with it. this would be a good standard drive for desktop use.

always think "when" hard drive fails, not "if" they fail.

Stay away from Toshiba. Dead drive under 3 year warranty. Rma-ed it and they did not have same one any more, didn't offer me similar current model either. Instead, they said will give you prepaid card for your purchase amount which sounded like a great offer. Guess what - it was pre-tax amount. Scum bags.
