Big HDD Showdown: Seagate 10TB vs. HGST Ultrastar He10 vs. WD Gold 8TB

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well, now everyone, with the exception of Toshiba, is rolling helium HDDs. I guess they are here to stay, but still expensive imo.
Quote:
HGST, a WD subsidiary, was the first to make the helium HDD breakthrough when it began shipping its 6TB Ultrastar He6 drives to select partners in 2013. Helium HDDs commanded a significant price premium at first, but the technology quickly gained widespread acceptance, thus lowering cost. HGST made a steady cadence of improvements to its platform as it moved forward with its 8TB Ultrastar He8 drives, which dominated our Best Of Enterprise HDDs rankings for well over a year, and now its He10 Ultrastar 10TB HDDs look to expand the winning streak.

Seagate may be late to the helium scene, but its entrance is a promising 10TB design that the company is quickly bringing to the desktop PC market.

I hope WDC keeps HGST around as a subsidiary to compete against WD and not fully integrate it and kill HGST off as a whole. Even though WD has HGST technology incorporated in their drives now, they're still lacking...

One thing is for sure, Seagate is holding their own very well. It's like WDC cares more about the HGST performance more than WD drives when competing against Seagate.

no. WD = consumer, HGST = enterprise. that is their split. There is no need to kill the brand.

I think it's time to get rid of these hdd and replace 10TB SSD with the same price. We need something small and portable.

Then why release Gold series of HDDs with SAS?
