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.
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
