Be careful on the 20TB Drives.... I just read that WD will have SMR (shingled) 20TB drives..

Just for comparison the 16tb were on sale last month for $260 and the 14tb for $190. 🤔

Quote from jmunjr
:
Even though these are $2 more per TB, I am tempted to return my four 14TB drives for four of these. Probably makes sense to upgrade as needed, but is can be expensive to upgrade a 4-6 drive RAID array.
I would. There's power and space savings, and I find that drives become too small to be practical before they actually fail, when they are used as pure archival solutions for large files as these typically are. For frequent read/writes of small files, its better to store that on a "cheap" 2TB SSD.

You also don't necessarily need 4-6 of these, and can just expand in the future as needed.

I'm wondering the same, as not much info out there on the internals for these drives.

At minimum, for what I can tell, they should be CMR drives and not SMR (good!) - https://blog.westerndigital.com/w...as-drives/

Has anyone shucked yet to provide more details on the drive itself?
