This hard drive is ideal for use in NAS (Network Attached Storage) computers. I already have 4 of these drives in my NAS and have just purchased a fifth one. This is the most competitive price available for this product. Excellent service from this vendor and next business day delivery for £6 courtesy of DPD (who give a one hour delivery window).

You have 5 of these. Thats 40TB (or less with RAID). I could understand a business buying these, but what on earth do you need that much storage at a cost of over £1000 ?

Is it still known as the deathstar.
The HGST drives are now some of the most reliable. Check out the failure stats from a Cloud provider who have thousands of hard drives of many brands and keep track of all failures by brand and model number;

No. That's a relic of the 75GXP from nearly 20 years ago

No idea why this is going negative - Deathstars were ages ago.
Good price for a drive from a major vendor with good reliability stats on Backblaze.
Although Backblaze don't run this exact drive - they have HDS, HMS, HUH and HUS type drives.

Sku 0S04012 is HGST part code: HDN728080ALE604. That's Deskstar 8TB, 7200rpm, 128MB cache vibration sensor.
Worth stating that other manufacturer's 8TB drives do well on Backblaze - even <cough> Seagate.

HGST model numbers decode as:
H = Hitachi
D = Deskstar, M = Megascale, U = Ultrastar
S = Standard, N = NAS?, H = Helium
5C = CoolSpin technology, 72 = 7200rpm?
80 = Full capacity — 4TB
80 = Capacity this model, 40 = 4TB
A = Generation code
L = 26.1mm z-height
E6 = 512e SATA 6Gb/s, 52 = 512e SAS 6Gb/s, N6 = 4Kn SATA 6Gb/s, 42 = 4Kn SAS 12Gb/s
0 = Reserved (2 = Reserved)
y = Data security mode, 0 = instant secure erase, 1 = data encryption, 4 = secure erase, 5 = TCG encryption

This is a great price and would have a couple if my old motherboard supported them to raid. I don't understand anyone who would risk this amount of data without any form of mirroring. Hot from me.
