    You'd best have bought an identically sized drive from a different manufacturer to add to a RAID1

      "buy more than one refurb for the same price and use the extras for redundancy and backups" is always a better strategy than buying new drives.

      They have done nothing to this except slap a new sticker on it.

        Enterprise driver with 30k+ hours on them are still more trustworthy than consumer trash.
        Plus since it's $70 RAID1 is actually affordable.

            alright actually 1 time I took an image like this into photoshop and made it black and white then had a 12 panel stencil I ran thru some program. The plan was to eventually cut it out into stencils. Throw red pain at a wall and do a mural throw up but I never did and no 1 would fricking care anyway..The other data that got lost is like "oh noes I lost my copy of Momento the movie or the entire season of Gantz or some other gay crap" The point is you nor your data really matters. its all disposable. Your mom is disposable.

      Glad I'm not the only one to really notice the scam WD is pulling
      Idiots wonder why HDD prices aren't going down while they only buy WD reds

    Most hard drives are practically the same. The only real difference is if it's SMR or not.

    I might buy one of these soon
    Hard to beat the storage/price ratio. Only issue is the noise.

      As someone who grew up using HDDs, most helium drives hardly fit the definition of "loud," even seeking noise is very tame compared to older drives

    Enterprise drives are great for raid arrays.
    Because if they encounter an error they fail immediate rather then retry and hang the raid controller with it relying to get data.
    For your application. Sure why not.

    The whole point of these drives is they're cheap but have high failure rate, they're used in redundant systems where it's expected part of your workday is pulling out the bad drives and slotting in new ones.
    If you bought exactly one of these and are putting all your Important Stuff on it, you have literally shot yourself in the foot.

    is it possible to reset the timer of an HDD? I bought one not long ago from a local store that guaranteed it was brand new and never used before even though it didn't come with any packaging, I plugged it to my PC and it did show that the timer was zero, but I can't help but be worried about the noise it makes which is louder than the other ones I own and the way the screw holes appear as if they have been used before.

        Yes, especially easy with older seagates

        guess I got scammed, although there are no bad sectors from the scans I did except for the loud noise it makes and yes it is a bit of an old model from 2016

    it depends, if you are using it occasionally to archive your files and unmount it (unplug it) then it will last, but if you are using it as your daily data driver, then you are fricked

    I have 4 of the 14TB version and they're all fine, the oldest of them is only a year old though. I have a bunch of shucked white labels that are about 5 years old and they've never given me any problem so I think the HCs will probably be the same. I run all of them 24/7 in a NAS and leave my torrents seeding
