Any comments on the reliability of the drive (or Exos drives generally?)... I've run out of space in my NAS (2*4TB WD Reds) so have been waiting for the 12TB Reds to come down to 300ish, but this deal seems pretty good in comparison

I have the 16TB version. These are enterprise drives and they are incredibly quiet for 7200 rpm drives. Also they transferred around 270 MB's a second to a nvme drive. Run cool too. Would recommend it.

Another alternative is to get the Seagate 16TB Expansion drive for about the same price and shuck it to get the Exos x16 drive inside. Doubtful that you'd get the same warranty though.

I have 4 of these Exos x16 drives and they've been running great. They're fast and quiet compared to my WD 14TB white labels.

I have the 12tb x14 hdd and they are pretty loud. You can hear the clicking and spinning the whole time it is being used.

Why should I NOT buy these versus IronWolfs for a NAS?

There is no reason NOT to buy these versus IronWolfs other than insignificantly more electrical current usage.

I am running them in many synology NASs and also perc raid arrays on Dells. We also used this lines predecessor before it was refered to as exos. I tried ironwolf, ironwolf pro, red, and red pro. And found exos to be superior in all realms that were of concern to me. This is now all I buy. I have probably 60-80 or so in service 0 RMAs so far... knock on wood. We do rotate drives every 3-5 years regardless of smart data, the decision to rotate them out of service is based on workload.

I have no comment on noise or heat as my usage cares not about these two factors.

Curious to know why do people need this much storage for personal use? Not counting anything for business.
"Business" Excel sheets and PowerPoint presentations can fit on a thumbdrive. "Personal" 4k videos and RAW digital images are what's keeping storage companies in business.

Looks like SMR. Hard pass unless you never erase anything stored in it.
Not sure if that is correct. I found a datasheet for the 8TB Exos, which does list SMR:
https://www.seagate.com/files/www...-en_US.pdf
However, the 14TB does not list SMR:
https://www.seagate.com/www-conte...-en_US.pdf
Unless I am finding the incorrect datasheet for this particular drive. And we all know after the WD fiasco, just because it isn't listed, doesn't mean it isn't there.

Also I find it a bit odd that Seagate doesn't list the Exos on the main list of drives

these use more power (5W idle 10W under load) and Exos do not come with warranty data protection and ironwolfs do. Exos also have a near double MTBF over ironwolfs.

I personally just bought 4 16TB x16 Exos drives for a RAID 6 synology config, fairly clicky and loud. These were just a 100$ cheaper over ironwolf pros. I figured the RAID 6 would work better than the data recovery warranty in my case
