You got me beat.

The oldest drive I still have in service is a 2TB Samsung Spinpoint with 58228 hours.

I’ve got a windows server at the school with ~13 years power-on time on the array (24 disk shelf, mostly original disks). Next time I go there, I’ll pull the smart data.

Until then, don’t count me.

I have some old university pool computer disks with 38000h power on hours and about 200 power cycles or something.

what was your command for that specific output? Can it list multiple drives?

sudo smartctl --all /dev/sda

It outputs all the smart data, I trimmed it to the hours and mfg/model.

I’m not sure if there is a way to do multiple drives at once. I just check all the ones I have and that was the highest by far. I’m not even sure when I bought that drive, but it was the first HDD I bought new.
