Oh yeah, mechanical drives here all the way.. 'they' don't mind being written too unlike SSD's, sure SSD's are fast at reads, but as this operator gets older... I don't need the fastest anymore..or just plain don't care .lol.. biggrin.gif

When I upgrade my current HDs, I"m still sticking to old school traditional mechanical drives.. for everything! ain't no compromise for longevity like this technology has proved.

Here too. I've seen my share of mech drive failures and solid state media failures, and really - speed's nice and drop survival is nice, but I still can't justify the price per gig.

Sticking to HDD until SSD price per GB is on par with HDD.

I don't think that is ever going to happen. By the time SSDs get down to current HDD price per GB, HDD price per GB will be much lower than it is now.

SSD can't compete with HDD on price per GB. HDD can't compete with SSD for speed we all know that. I'm using a WD Black 1TB 2015 model and it's fine, loads OS fast enough and very quiet can't even hear it.

Their datacenter are cooled way better than whatever cooling you have in your house.
They are also using those drives for storage. What do you think they are using them for? BBQs?

I have had 80% Western Digital with only one failed drive of the 20 or so I have owned.
The rest are a mix of the other companies, I have had 3 or probably 10 total failed Seagate drive, 3 of 3 hitachi drives fail. 1 of 2 toshiba drives fail. Never owned a HGST. Also for the oldy oldsons, I have owned 7 Maxtors from the ide days, and none ever died of those.
post #39 of 88
Speaking of Maxtor, I have a 320gb Maxtor from 2006 still chugging away in my system. Never gave me any sign of errors.

From further down the article, the failure rate is a percentage of the "Max # in Service" number (which may be smaller than the total # drives tested)

Always consider the number of drives (Max # in Service) when looking at the failure rate. For example, the 1.5TB Seagate Barracuda Green drive has a failure rate of 130.9%, but that is based on only 51 drives. We tested these Seagate drives in one Storage Pod in our environment and they were not a good fit. In general, we’ve found it takes at least 6 Storage Pods (270 drives) worth of drives to get good sense of how a given drive will perform in our environment.
