Seagate IronWolf NAS 18TB HDD and 1.92GB M.2 Review

Anvil MB/s

The MB/s benchmark shows what we've been saying. There is only so fast you can write before the amount of data you can lose becomes untenable, and the IronWolf 510 is setup to keep that under 1GB.

Isn't Seagate being unreliable essentially an urban myth down to people misunderstanding Backblaze data?

(IE treating it as some kind of reliable weighted sample rather than a fairly randomised set of unweighted raw data with trends often dictated by forces outside of the HDDs themselves that is not considered in the published data sets, such as the fact Backblaze at often sources cheaper consumer grade drives through unofficial means, Eg external drive extractions, 2nd hand, ect, and that their environment, mounting, ect varies widely)Quote

A lot of it is that. Backblaze data got them a lot of bad press and that impression stuck. It also made people who had failed HDDs from that company more vocal with their complaints. That adds a lot of legitimacy to Backblaze's data.

I have been using a Seagate HDD in my main system for over six years with no issues. If anything it is the oldest component in my system.

The same thing happens when a lot of companies get bad press. The Corsair SFX controversy from earlier this year comes to mind. It causes anyone with a bad customer experience with that company to come up and complain, and the weight of it lowers a brand's standing.Quote

There's no such thing as a reliable hard drive. They can be gone at any moment, and as such, you should be prepared to losing them.Quote
