Seagate Archive 8tb ST8000AS0002

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried this Seagate Archive 8tb ST8000AS0002 ? Is there any review because i can't find any? Here in europe it's not "too" expensive . Anyone knows what this archive series means? Can i use it like a regular drive? Seagate lists it as a 6-platter disk and i wonder if it gets too hot.

Here is their page on the Archive drives:

http://www.seagate.com/products/enterprise-servers-storage/nearline-storage/archive-hdd

According to this announcement they are "Shipping drives to select customers now with wide scale availability next quarter." That may mean that they are starting to become available now. I don't think you would want to use one like a desktop drive. They look like they are supposed to be used for "cold data" which means they are probably slow. Although, according to the data sheet they don't look as slow as I thought they would.

You most likely won't be able to find these drives available at consumer retail places to begin with. I would check with whatever distributors Seagate uses in your area and see if they have stock if you are interested in these drives.

thanks but i have already read these

still if you could find any review from users or tech site , i would be grateful. I've only found this announcement at guru3d

speed isn't my concern as i will mostly use them as backup, but yes, as you said , they don't look too slow

So how much is it going to be? Cost effective it would be $200-$250.

If anything you need 2 of these for 8TB total. You just cant store stuff in 8TB drive alone. Maybe even 3.

I bought it about a month ago and then 2 weeks later returned it

that thing was crazy loud....not sure if it was defective but just being idle it was producing 38-40 dB and during activity up to 45 dB

I laid the drive on the top of the case to easily identify how healthy it sounds and measured it with simple android app with my phone placed next to it (so real noise could be even little higher)

just ran the surface test (ran for like 30h) and was so noisy that I couldn't stand that in my pc...I could easily hear it over the rest of the rig....would probably come down a bit inside the case but I still didn't want to keep drive that loud...it was easily louder then all my fans (they are all slowed to probably 800-1000 rpm so pretty quiet) and also the hdd noise was more intrusive to my ears then the fan noise is

haven't tried a different one yet to find out if it was just a defective unit with noisy bearings or sthg but I guess even the head was loud....the noise at idle was from spinning so probably bearing related but the read (or maybe even write - not sure what it actually does during surface test) was probably caused by the head

I have had many drives (at least 20) and none were that loud
currently have seagate sshd 4TB, seagate sv35 and several sasmsung drives +850evo & 840evo



actually I bought the seagate archive to RMA the seagate SSHD as it sometimes starts clicking and I have to turn off the pc for it to stop (first was about once in 2 weeks, then it started to be more and more often and was like few times a week, amost every other day

recently it has stopped though so I have some time to choose my next drive, was thinking of going raid5 for safety but if they are this noisy than I'll have to go to WD which will cost a lot more. My current mobo only has 4 drive raid controller and I need at least 10TB, preferably 12+ or more so ideally 4x4TB to have 12GB and that is a lot of cash since WD are expensive.

anyone else tried it? maybe I just had bad luck (as usual) and got a defective one

Is this reality or just bad sample? I was just about to pull the trigger on these because the capacity and being 5900rpm so they should be pretty low noise. Have not seen any reviews where they measure the operating noise. frown.gif

I have 1 3TB 7200rpm seagate on my nas box which is in the same room where I sleep and it's noisy, but that is the max noisiness I can stand.

it has more platters and maybe that's the reason for being so noisy. MInd you that it is noisy only when it searches something, watching a movie or being idle is like any other disk. The moving heads make the noise. It's one of the loudest disks i've ever had in the last 20 years. On the bright side i didn't experience the slowdowns the others did

I also have the seagate st3000dm001 and it's very quiet for my taste
