I have this drive. I returned the first one because I thought it was faulty due to how loud it was, but the replacement was just as loud. It's very fast for a mechanical drive, about 3x faster than my 5 year old 1tb 7200rpm seagate in sequential read speeds. I'd definitely recommend it at this price.

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
If only! I've got 22 TB on my Ubuntu box and a 32 TB WD NAS and here I am checking out prices for additional storage.

Freenas running 6+ of these 7200rpm can write faster than 10gbit transfers. I'm still impressed by it. Though now SSD has gotten cheap enough for cache drives.

Size shouldn't matter. Pun intended

Can this be used in a NAS device ?
Yes but will be more likely to fail and run much hotter.

This or shucking the WD EasyStore 8TB?

Those reviews sure are scary.
I shucked two WD Easystore 8TB drives (white label inside).
They are surprisingly noisy. There is a weird whining noise that occurs occasionally that is not like typical hard drive noises. I searched online for other complaints and found that other WD 8TB white label owners reported the same sound, though I have no idea what the actual statistics are. Both of my units have it, but what's the percentage of all of them that have it?

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 a 4 TB X300 and it is fine. However I an hard of hearing and the tower sits under the table.

Have a 5TB X300 that I bought for $150 a few years ago. It's still going strong today. And yes, it's loud, but it's only loud in small bursts as it's reading or writing. Once it loads the thing into RAM it's silent again. The read/write performance is some of the best you can get for the price, I remember bench-marking over 200MB/s when I first got it.

Occasionally, Windows will do it's auto-defragment (after the computer has been idle for ~5 minutes) which you can hear it go very loudly, but more commonly if a program accesses a file randomly (say you have programs that auto-run tasks that require files to be read/written to the drive), you'll hear it in small bursts again, that is the most annoying thing about it. As a result I don't keep any live programs on it, and only keep it for storage. I recommend if you get this that you use an SSD for your live programs that you use and only use this as a storage medium.

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.
So they offered to give you the FULL retail price of the drive with no pro-rating or depreciation? Guaranteed you could buy a new, larger drive with that return. Sorry the drive died but it does happen, to every manufacturer. I know I'd rather get the FULL retail price back in warranty that the refurbished drives that Seagate and WD will send you.

How does this compare to WD Black drives?

Oh, and Raptors.
