You can also pre-clear over usb just in case it has issues.

Not a fan of Seagate though. Lost more than one which is why i run a nas now.
You definitely can do that but I'd prefer not to subject it to 48 hours of constant reads and writes in an enclosure that has zero cooling. Once I confirmed it had the right drive inside I shucked it and put it in my rig to preclear.

Ran a fan on the case and it stayed very cool. Tried another without the fan and didnt get as hot as you would think. Maybe 2-3 degrees hotter. I was surprised. These were wd 12 tb & 14 tb.

I've owned 2 of these Seagate models. One lasted 5 years. I ended up replacing it November. The new one lasted all of 3 weeks before the dreaded clicking began.
I'm sticking with Western Digital for now.

Did you try sticking it in your fridge?

I have had much the same experience with Seagate over the past two decades. HGST and Toshiba are good (just got a Toshiba 2TB), but mostly I use WD.

I have this drive from a previous deal, and shucked it. It's a great drive. I put it in my Plex server and it is so fast.

What is probably the best bang for the buck when it comes to SSD external hard drives? Haven't seen too many deals out there.

CrystalDiskInfo - no need to crack it
Quote from SQwish :
According to https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoar...expansion/ looks like it's shuckable but yeah you'd probably damage the enclosure removing the drive. One person got 1 drive intact out of 4.

Sounds like these are SMR drives too?

Quote from alancostello :
Recent reviews on Amazon suggest this might have an Ironwolf Pro inside, it has free returns so gonna give it a go!
Just got 2 from Amazon for $169 yesterday, and shucked with an Oscillating Tool blade and paint can opener which resulted in IronWolf 10TB NAS drives st10000ne0008 manufactured 2 days apart in Nov 2020!
