    there's nothing worthwhile to download, instead use it to store your own collection of 3D scans of real world objects for training AI 3D gen models. Think 3D scan of muffins, chairs, forest vegetation. High quality 3D scans take up a lot of space

      It's a myth. They are just as reliable. The only difference is that they store more data so you likely lose more data during a catastrophic failure

      Mostly myth
      That being said these newer HDDs are physically delicate. I accidentally let one fall 3 inches (inside of a caddy no less) and a day later the heads acted like they had a hard time actually reading, drive would also fail self-tests.
      Got it replaced under warranty no questions asked but it was a gentle reminder to be careful.

      I think alot of the hesitation with newer anything is survivorship bias. You see a something like a hgst hus724030ale640 that you know has been running for close to 100k hours and is still good, at the same time your seeing 20TBs that are not even a year old that fail catastrophically.

      Makes you question things even if statistically newer drives are no worse. People forget that for every long lived HDD there is a small mountain of dead HDDs of the same model that never made it to that point.

    Assuming brand loyalty to WD just for the sake of comparing general classes of hard drives…

    Does it even really make sense to get a Gold if you're an individual person, and not an organization with a data center? I can't think of any scenario where I'd rather have a Gold than a few Blues in RAID 5.

    • 2 months ago
      Anonymous

      The general rule is for people who actually buy HDDs is get whatever is the best $ per TB

      Generally this means you end up ignoring anything sold retail. You don't buy WD Gold, Blues, Reds, etc because they are all overpriced.
      The best $ per TB for HDDs usually end up being "grey" market HDDs or disk taken out of external HDDs.
      The absolute lowest price per TB HDDs usually end up being the grey market HDDs. These are HDDs meant to go to Amazon, Google or whatever DCs but for whatever reason end up for sale online on ebay or certain websites.
      These same HDDs can also be found recertified or "refurbished" for even less.

      • 2 months ago
        Anonymous

        That makes no sense. Aiming to minimize $/TB is just maximizing TB/drive in practice. But losing 20TB to inevitable drive failure is unacceptable, so you're actually buying at least 2 of them so you can set it up in RAID 1.

        You're better off buying e.g. 3×10TB and setting them up in RAID 5. That will cost you less for the same usable 20TB, and also have faster reads.

        • 2 months ago
          Anonymous

          If you don't need 20TB then don't get 20TB, but atleast be conscious.
          You can find HDDs at a similar price per TB as 20TB and lower capacity but you do have to really look for them. I've seen some ebay listings for new 12TB seagates for $120

          20TB just happens to be the most mass-produced CMR drive right now, so many opportunities to get them rather cheaply. Probably the best time to get any if you want them as DCs move to HSMR drives.

    Is hard drive noise a meme? Like many heterosexual gamers, I stopped using spinning rust years ago, but now I need the space for my Oprah Winfrey Show archive.

    I've seen some people say that helium drives are much quieter than old drives, but some people who say anything more than 5400RPM causes ear cancer.

    How dumb is it to build a ZFS pool with 8tb 5400 drives? These are going to sit in my living room in a cheap chinese enclosure. I worry that data center drives would be too distracting

      >Is hard drive noise a meme?
      it depends
      generally, if you need a silent data server, what you're looking for are consumer drives. do not go for enterprise drives (despite you can find them very cheap used) because they vibrate noticeably louder than their consumer counterparts of the same speed. do not get baited for WD Gold, they're 7200 anyway, but I wanted to get it out of the way. they're good drives but despite the helium thing, still louder than your average consumer 7200.
      loudness-wise, it's consumer 5400 < consumer 7200 < enterprise 7200 helium < enterprise 7200 non-helium.

      Objectively newer helium HDDs are pretty quiet
      Seagate X20 is 30dba seeking.

      Is there was a reason for why people think HDDs are loud it more than likely had to do with mounting.
      Not all cases have good mounting and can sometimes amplify noise out of an hdd.

      Large capacity drives issue is not the passive idle noise it's the constant 50db clicks every few seconds that they won't tell you about. All large capacity drives even Helium have this issue but Helium is still quieter than air

      ZFS is a meme though unless you need the throughput and properly configure it for that. It was only useful before HDDs had built-in error correction (before 2010 or so)

    I'm thinking of putting this all into one pool or buying a 15 - 20 TB hdds and making just one pool with multiple datasets. How should I go about consolidating all of this? And yes, I have everything backuped to both an external cold drive and backblaze (encrypted). So I can wipe and restart pools at anytime. It'll just be a pain to remake all the vms, plex, and such in truenas.

      If it was me I'd buy 2x 16-20TB HDD. Build a home server/NAS with either Unraid or TrueNAS with one of the drives as a mirror. I'd use docker instead of VMs and use the *arr stack + Jellyfin for media. Then transfer all your data/media to it, if it's Unraid you could add the 8TB drives to it as well as it works well with drives of different sizes or just use them as cold backups/in other machines. And it was me, I literally did that last year

    My opinion as someone who's got data still readable after 20+ years; Brand of HDD don't much mater. This is what does; type. You use the type of drive for the purpose you intend to use it for. (A desktop drive goes in a desktop; a NAS/Server drive goes into a NAS/Server). Sure blackblaze may use regular desktop drives but then again due to the nature of their bis they're scaling up in capacity a hell of a lot faster than most other companies are (A few pods of 45 10TB drives are quickly tossed out in favor of the 20TB model due to joe, jim,bob,etc across the ocean uploading all their cartoon porn). Nutshell; They don't care that the life span of a desktop drive is short cause they're burning through the capacity they offer before a lot of them die. You the typical home server user aren't tossing out perfectly good 10TB drives on the daily due to hitting your limit. So build your server with the idea that hey this drive must last 5 years or more. Thus NAS or Server drives are it.

      There is nothing wrong with ZFS. In fact for long term viability of your data you want ZFS. See those 20TB drives? Imagine you've got 12 of them. Then imagine you fill them all. Most data just sits. Till its time to read it. Normal file system after 20 years you'd be lucky to get 50% of it back. Backups are not the end all be all. Yes they're important. But if there is no "checks" along the backup chain ideally starting from the source, then there is no way to tell if that backup data is good or bad or whatever. See the example above with the 20TB drives. That's a lot of data to lose. Tape is the same way; once its on tape, whatever is there is there. Good or bad. No way to tell. Till you go to restore it. Nip the uncertainty in the bud. ZFS chain all the way. (Server + backup server + another backup server all with ZFS)
