The initial result was a failure to recognise the drive but after a restart, it was recognised and formatted to an 18TB (nominal) storage space. When copying the data back to the array, the write speed had dropped from 180-200MB/s to 70MB/s and was falling by the minute. After 90 minutes with just 2% of the data written, the job was abandoned. It would take about 2 days, significantly longer than the 11.5-12 hours it should need based on the volume of data!
Ironwolf and Ironwolf NAS drives of larger and smaller capacities were previously successfully used and never with an issue. An alternative brand and model may later be purchased, possibly a similar choice to previous 'mix 'n' match situation where matching existing units was impossible - it was not possible in this instance, hence the choice of Seagate Ironwolf NAS.
The drive unit was subsequently removed from the enclosure and the array reverted to BIG as before. The write speed improvement was immediate and the unit packaged for return.
Anyway the drive was sent back and a refund issued with no problem.
I did order another drive. That one arrived with zero protective wrapping in the box! Although the box was a lot smaller. However, the drive is working... for now. I shall be keeping an eye on that one... and shall be using the smartmontools to do so...
At one time drives were boxed correctly so they would not suffer the knocks and vibration in transit. Those days seem to have gone.
The packaging situation is a pity and a real shame because these drives are very good.
I found the packaging was very minimal and was hoping the drive would last long.
Unfortunately, the drive, used in a NAS, has FAILED on 1st of August 2020, 4.5 months after. Maybe it is related to weak packaging, maybe it is not but the end result was not great!
This is the first drive in numerous drive that I have used across 20 years+ which fails.
Yes, after formatting and installing DSM, you will have 5.4TB of usable storage. DSM may reserve 5% for metadata. Haven't noticed any write/read speed difference when relating to the different rpms between the non-pro Vs the pro. But this isn't a deal breaker for me. Let's see about the reliability in the long run.
