I don't understand the huge jump in cost between 4TB and 6TB.
Slow
Yeah, seagate and reliable aren't two things I'd consider as being related.

Slow


Give a bit more explanation mate before just saying "Slow" for people who may not understand. What they mean is that it is 5400RPM which is slower then 7200RPM HDDs. Ideally if you are going for an Mechanical Hard Disk Drive(HDD) you would want it running as fast as possible for OS bootups etc, but if you are going to worry about speed of the drive go for an SSD. HDDs at this point should only be used for media storage as SSDs and namely the M.2 NVMe drives are for very fast read/write speeds and increasingly more inexpensive.

Check this image for PCMark comparison. Ignore the top two SSHD listings as these drives are mostly obsolete.

HDDs don't need to be fast for media storage. I'd take one slower than 5400rpm if it was a bit cheaper.

I'd take a 5400rpm drive over a 7200rpm drive to store my movies... less stress, less wear and tear, less heat etc.

Since SSDs and high density HDD platters, the platter speed has become an obsolete parameter.
suitable for nas?
Is it likely to be worth waiting for Black Friday deals on HDDs similar to this or is this likely to be as good as it gets?
