The failure rate of Seagate's 8TB drives is looking quite promising. Increasing data density and reducing the number of platters really helps to increase reliability, as it reduces the possible points of failure.
So let's flip this like the backblaze report.
ZOMG WOE HGST ARE FAILING LEFT AND RIGHT, SO MANY MORE FAILURE COMPAREF TO SEAGATE. ALL PRAISE THE ULTIMATE NEVER FAILING SEAGATE.
Yeah. It was a one time deal of bad drives. Been running Seagate for a long time and not issue one.
I wonder when HGST drives will become crap or WD becomes the best thing since sliced bread again.
WD owns HGST after all, so I wouldn't be surprised if one or the other becomes a rebrand of the other.
I don't think WD would risk tarnishing the HGST brand haha
