Is anyone familiar with the hard drive model contained within? Looking at Amazon customer images all I can make out is that it's a Barracuda.

Which is better? Barracuda in this one or the WD80EZAZ in WD easystore?
I'm new to NAS and want a better drive.

It's a crap shoot either way. Id personally go for the WD for no good reason.

I have had one drive fail in the last decade and it was western digital. I still usually buy wd. The Costco smr seagates burned me. If these are barracuda then no worries, good deal.

Thanks for the post! Repped. I combined with AMEX 30% off 100 and the price dropped to $93+tax!

Is it better to spend more on WD Drives rather than Seagate? for an 8TB Drive, that's a lot of photos and documents to lose if the hard drive goes bad. It'd be an absolute heartbreak if I buy one of these and it fails me (even before the warranty) <br />

Always spend more money so you have some kind of backup plan. Even if you have to buy smaller storage size drives. If your files are extremely important. Have more than 2 separate devices. Most posts I have read lean toward the WD drives.

I've had two of these (8TB WD) fail in the last few months. Zero Seagate fails of the same generation. I have many more Seagates than WD. If they fail at that rate, no price is low enough for me to buy WD.

Both are good drives. I have used both drives, both shucked, and all work fine.
WD was more appealing earlier because they used the NAS grade RED drives. But they have moved away from that and now they use the white label ones. So either one is good.

Some people are married to one brand vs other but if you are not then I would go with the cheaper option. One thing I would mention is that in a NAS it is recommended that you use same drives. So if you start with Seagate, stay with seagate drives when you need to add/replace drives.

If you are going for NAS, make sure you use RAID with redundancy- don't do Raid-0. And as I always say, if your data is important, have external backup. Raid is not backup.
