Seagate Barracuda Compute failures 2019
Just wondering if anyone else has had such lousy luck with the newer barracuda drives?
I purchased ST8000DM004 8tb internal sata hard disk for long term storage of media files, when I ran the SMART utility immediately after placing my media on the drive, I found reallocated sectors and multiple end to end errors in the smart stats. I watched the drive closely for a few days and decided to RMA the drive through newegg where I purchased it. They promptly replaced the drive, and I put my media on it again, this time it didn't even last a single day before it failed and no longer worked. I know for certain both times they were brand new, sealed drives. Now, I am having to RMA directly through seagate, as newegg only replaces a device once. Seagate has since informed me they don't have any of these drives, so they are shipping "equivalent" product.
I am just wondering if anyone else has experienced these failures on this model number. Over many years of building and using computers I realize drives fail, but I have never experienced 2 back to back fails on a drive, regardless of brand. Seems like newegg may have gotten a bad batch of these in.
