4.0 out of 5 stars i have more storage for memes than i could ever want
By DailyDB on 23 November 2020
i have purchase three of these fine metal enclosures of the 3.5 inch variety. i am not a fancy man and i just use them as a standard HDD in a windowed environment. read and write speeds are fine, probably the second 3.5 inches i have seen do things that fast.

they do have that thing that i cant remember the name of that makes some read and write functions slower, but for standard every day meme use the work fine for watching sanic movies at 4k whilst colour grading sanic memes and listening to kpop. not so good for pp scratching though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mit Seagate geht es bergauf
Reviewed in Germany on 8 November 2019
Im Dezember 2017 erwarb ich 4 Stück 8 TB Archive Modelle. Da nach ca. 200 Betriebsstunden die zurückgelesenen Backupdaten etwa 3 bis 5 fehlerhafte Dateien pro TB aufwiesen, hat mir Seagate diese gegen 4 Ironwolf-Modelle ausgetauscht.
Diese zeigten das gleiche Verhalten. Die Festplatten bemerken die Fehler und mappen die fehlerhaften Sektoren auf Reservesektoren. In den SMART-Daten (nicht korrigierbare Fehler) wird dies aber nicht angezeigt. Nach ca. 1000 Betriebsstunden sind alle "Grown Defects" gewachsen und die Platten arbeiten bei mir seit ca. April 2018 fehlerfrei.
Ursache hierfür ist die um den Faktor 2 höhere Bitdichte auf den Scheiben. Damit wirken sich einzelne Störatome oder Gitterfehler stärker aus.
Ich habe seit April 2018 auch 3 Stück 8 TB Western Digital Red im Einsatz. Diese haben seit dem nicht einen einzigen Fehler gezeigt. - Es geht also doch.
Aktuell habe ich zwei 4 TB Seagate BarraCuda getestet. Ich war erschrocken. Sie zeigen das gleiche Verhalten wie die 8 TB Versionen. Vermutlich hat Seagate bei den neuen Modellen dieselben Scheiben wie bei den 8 TB Modellen eingebaut. Aber eben nur halb so viele Scheiben. Meine teilweise 8 Jahre alten 4 TB Seagates zeigten nie einen einzigen Fehler.
Die Seagate Hotline ist von mir 2018 informiert worden. Ihr Vorschlag war, die Platten nochmals auszutauschen.
... damit ich wieder 1000 Betriebsstunden warten kann, bis die Platten zuverlässig Daten speichern?
TzTzTz

Am 2019-12-28 korrigiere ich:
Ich war so frech eine 16TB Seagate Ironwolf Platte nicht bei Amazon zu kaufen. Bei ... gab es sie ca. 130 € billiger.
Nach ca. 300 Stunden Dauertest ist kein einziges fehlerhaftes Datenbit gelesen worden!!!
Nach ca. 10 Telefonaten und ebenso vielen E-Mails mit der Seagate Hotline Anfang 2018 scheinen sie es wohl kapiert zuhaben.
Grown Defects brauchen thermische Stimulation. Bei ca. 45°C dauert es eben ca. 1000 Stunden, bis alle Defekte gewachsen sind. Heizt man die Scheiben am Ende ihrer Produktion noch vor Einbau in ihr Gehäuse für ca. 30 Minuten auf ca. 100°C auf, erreicht man den gleichen Effekt. Alle Störstellen habe ihre endgültige Position eingenommen und können beim Aufzeichnen der Primary Defects im Gehäuse auf Resevesektoren gemapped werden.
Das Aufzeichnen der Primary Defects dauert bei einer 8 TB-Platte ca. 2 * 11 Stunden. 11 Stunden für das erste Beschreiben der Platte und 11 Stunden für das anschließende Aufzeichnen und Remappen der fehlerhaften Sektoren.
Die halbe Stunde Produktionszeitverlängerung fällt also kaum ins Gewicht.

Wer seine Backups ebenfalls auf Bitfehler überprüfen will, dem empfehle ich das kostenlose Tool „Total Commander“. Unter „Befehle->Verzeichnisse synchronisieren“ hat man die Möglichkeit ganze Verzeichnisse samt Unterverzeichnissen zu vergleichen – auch bitweise. Wer sich einmal an diesen Dateiexplorer gewöhnt hat, wird sich fassungslos fragen, warum sie/er sich so lange mit dem Windows Explorer abgemüht hat.

Ich werde meine Festplatten von Western Digital und Seagate weiterhin monatlich auf Bitfehler überprüfen.
Sollten sich solche einstellen, korrigiere ich natürlich meine Rezension.

Viele Grüße auch an Amazon
Detlev
