      >Western Digital
      I have a high capacity helium filled WD.
      Has anyone personal reports on reliability?
      Can I simply expect it to last at least as long as my previous WD Green or could the helium end up being an issue?

      I have a Toshiba hard drive from 2008 that still works. Pretty sure it'll outlive my family line, at this point.

      Sadly Western Digital are overpriced and Hitachi are too loud. Glad I picked up 2 WD Golds a couple of years ago for my start NAS when they were on sale but I want to add more drives and they're $100 more expensive now, $270 vs $363 for a 16TB WD Gold and it's hard to justify. Other brands have their 16TB drives around $250-270 so it's frustrating the ones I want are that much more. It's also used in the same room so I can't justify going for Hitachi louds either

    just buy cheap and make it redundant. trying to avoid hard-drive failure is like trying to avoid aging

      Why gamble with cheap drives when you can buy more reliable products while still having redundancy and backup?

    Any hard drive + a backblaze subscription for $9 a month or whatever = most reliable

    >there are people who still use HDDs despite that they're objectively shitty because they're slow and they're unreliable
    You guys are dumb. You're supposed to have ONLY SSDs on your computer. SATA SSDs are extremely cheap nowadays.

      Eventually you run up against the fact that your PC can only hold like two SATA SSDs. That 14 TB SATA HDD starts looking mighty tempting about then.

        it's only a problem with zoomyzoomzoom tempered glass meme cases
        a cheap chink office case from the 2000s could easily hold a more than 2

          Mainboards have limited SATA ports. 2 or 4 ports are most common. 6 or 8 ports are less common you find only on more expensive boards. You also may run into shared bandwidth issues with M.2 or PCIe, which limits how much you can connect.

      SSDs are even worse in the reliability department. Often they become simply completely unreadable, instead of warning you that things are going bad.

        That's not how reliability is measured lol

        you're also assuming the electronics of an HDD will never fail, in which case I ask if electronics are so reliable, why would SSDs fail?

          SSDs use flash memory, which is less reliable than normal electronics and which wears down.

            You can track flash usage however, assuming you actually wear it down which is quite difficult in my experience

      At least as far as back in '05, my Slav buddy told me Seagate is shit. I took his advice and never bought a Seagate drive in my life, but got given a portable one at uni and to this day it's the only drive that ever failed on me. Then there's that one Backblaze image. Good to see the old meme is still holding up.

    Order one of these (CMR, avoid the SMR models), give it the ol' sudo smartctl -t long /dev/sdX, and request a replacement if the test fails.
