Pretty sure these are on par with WD Reds?

Pretty sure these are on par with WD Reds?


Depends how you use them, if they're going into a Synology NAS these have extra functionality compared with the WD's
Not sure what warranty comes with them when buying from Amazon
£125 each from eBuyer via eBay using Partytime. I know as I've just bought two. These are both faster and have double the cache of the smaller Ironwolf drives and faster than the WD Reds.

The WD reds are slower as they're designed to be put into a NAS so slower rotation is preferable
Seems the speed jumps from 5900 rpm to 7200 rpm when you choose a 6TB drive? Also the link is to an older model.

Depends how you use your nas. Emphasis on lifespan, heat, energy consumption and noise then the reds are your pick. If you use the nas more interactively (as I do editing large media files) and have a dual gig connection to take advantage then the 7200s provide greater performance.

I'm intregued, what are your duel gig ports connected to and what video files would have a bigger bitrate that a 5400 drive in a raid wouldn't be fast enough for?

NAS is currently only mirrored so no raid perf benefit, altho with an extra two disks I'll be looking to change that. Nas to netgear managed pro switch dual gig reduces that bottleneck so gives me less competition between desktop and nas when other users are using the nas from other clients. I'm not the one vid streaming but moving photos around and editing. I did get a desktop pci card that supports link aggregation intending to speed up the pc >switch link, but haven't had any success getting that working properly. I should do more locally on the PC SSDs but it's habit working on the nas.

And you honesty think a standard 7200 drive speed is noticeable enough not to choose a proper NAS 5400 drive. I think you'd hardly notice the difference.

The Ironwolf IS Seagate's 'proper' NAS drive including the enhanced health diagnostics visible with a Synology NAS. But hard drive preferences really aren't a topic with disagreeing over...
