Why is pic related the best HDD?

Not complaining since I got it for $20, but my Seagates shit on it.

Nothing is noisy about it. You simply must have a faulty one, friend!

>500GB is $80

is there any reason to get black over blue these days?

>> No.56394658


(((They))) are really subtle these days eh?

>> No.56394660

Might as well just get a SSD at that price.

>> No.56394693

Well, the Blues over 1TB are the new Green. 5400RPM pieces of shit. The entire line will probably migrate when the EZEX EOL's.

My 1700 days on 1TB WD black is still alive and well
But its slow and noisy as fuck, yeah
Barely 90mb/s when the 1TB shitgate I use for backups get 230

If I need more storage some day I'm going HGST

>> No.56394747

If you're looking for 1TB, Seagate SD1000DM003 or Blue.

>> No.56394750

Everyone shits on Seagate as being bad, but the I have 2x 1TB barracuda drives that have both seen easily 20TB of data written to them. They're quiet, run cool, and were $10 cheaper than even the shit tier WD greens.

Toshiba X300 drives also aren't terrible. Have 2x4TB X300s in my media server. $110 for a 128MB cache, 7200rpm 4TB drive is a great deal. Their 6TB drives are coming down too. Going to get 2 6TB drives when they hit $160 a piece.

all that is left is steam games that can be re-acquired any time

I have a Hitachi deskstar 40gb Sata from 2005 with 8 years of run time and it works perfectly fine. Hard drives now a days are made to die fast.

Also it was only noisy for me at the very beginning when I had just finished transferring all my files. It winded down after a couple of days. Very rarely does it make enough noise to be consciously audible.

>> No.56396692

Exactly. That's a shit and unjustifiable factor.

>> No.56396777

The FAEX is from 2010. It's EOL.
Noisy seeks are noisy seeks. There's no way I could use mine as a main seeding drive. I pack it with ISOs that don't see much action.

My bad. Most of the WD Blacks being sold belong to the FZEX family, like mine, which is 25-45% faster than the FAEX family and much more durable/reliable. Not sure about noise.

>> No.56397591

Because unless they fucked in the factory WDs are very hard to kill. I accidentally knocked an old wd 120gb off my desk and onto a concrete floor. It was bare and powered on, transferring files. It died a year later. That was the only WD I've owned that died.
