Newegg: Seagate Exos 16TB Enterprise HDD X16 - $379.99 > Now $382.49
5-year Warranty.
Not 100% familiar with this line from Seagate.
More expensive that the shuckable drive but you get 5 years warranty and 2.5M-hr MTBF rating.
It seems that tomorrow they will have a deal on the 14TB.

It's a datacenter class HDD, i.e. the highest of the top tier, and the highest capacity too. If you need an HDD and can swing this definitely pull the trigger ASAP; these things are tough to find under the high 400s.
I have an Exos X12 and swear by it. I also paid nearly $500 for it.
Good deal find, I'd buy this instantly if I needed a new drive, but right now I don't.

Datacenter HDDs are the best HDDs you can get for any purpose, period. In fact, they're the only class of 3.5in HDD I buy.

just remember not to put all your eggs in one basket.

back up your data at least 2-3 times and use different forms/ways. i.e. different brand and store off site.

But what's the chances a standard NAS will support this large a drive? I've got an older EMC and it specifies 6TB as the largest "supported" drive.

If you open the deal list on newegg, at the bottom you have the list for tomorrow grey out.
I think I might get the 14tb if tomorrow s price is good.
16tb is a lot if I lose it and also fairly $$$.

If it supports drives larger than 4TB, it will almost certainly support larger drives. This drive is also SATA and not SAS, so I would almost guarantee it would work.

Backup, either separate, in RAID or both is recommended.
I don't think there is much of a difference whether you lose 14GB or 16GB of your stuff.

Running 4 of these in my nas for my plex box (with a mix of other 10tb and 6tb drives as well), they are perfect for it for my use case so far. As far as unraid goes, i pretty sure LTT (linus tech tips, youtube) used these exact drives in their data center vault running unraid. So yes to that one as well.

Backblaze is a datacenter that uses ton of drives and they post statistics on failure rates. The failure rate between datacenter and consumer drives is negligible. Never trust your data to any drive whether it be enterprise or consumer, always backup to another source.

  1. The speed difference isn't negligible
  2. Backblaze doesn't specify workload for each drive model. Higher workloads = higher failure rates
  3. My data is backed up in ZFS, Btrfs, and DrivePool arrays, on-disk snapshots, and offsite cloud
Use whatever works best for you. The warranty, workload rating, and performance peace of mind datacenter drives come with are well worth the extra investment for me.

I am hoping to get the 14tb tomorrow around $300.
16tb at $400 with taxe is a lot.
