the proper brown cardboard boxes with the plastic end covers/supports or the foam lined boxes we used to get with hard drives ??
Just waiting for a backup to complete on my sever before I can test the drives out and see if they survived.
Will post back....
Well the drives had survived, ran a full error check on both drives with Seagates own utility (http://www.seagate.com/gb/en/support/downloads/item/seatools-win-master/ not very informative as just gives a pass/fail) but
then I ran a full health and error check with HD Tune Pro (downloaded the 15 day free trial version as the freeware version has a 2TB limit on volume size).
All of the SMART info checked out OK the critical ones to check seem to be:
Reallocated Sectors Count : If the drive finds a error with its read,write or the verification it does it will mark the area and move the data to another area on the drive.
Current Pending Sector Count : If an area of the drive failed but the next time it was accessed it was okay it's recorded here as it may be unstable and need moving. This can be an early sign of issues with a drive.
Uncorrectable Sector Count : This can indicate an issue with the discs themselves of the heads that read them.
Except for a few SMART items where the raw info was not correct (manufacturers set up their drives differently so apps can have issues reading the raw data) all the info was fine with almost all zeros.Read more ›
What differentiates this from standard HDD's is that it has been fine tuned specifically for NAS applications and storage duties and it features a 3 year warranty.
I've used Western Digital Red drives before so I was keen to see how the Seagate equivalent stacked up.
Performance will vary depending on the type and features of your nas but Seagate rate it for a max transfer speed of 180 MB/s.
This drive has a number of notable features to help in a nas environment. It has been fine tuned to reduce vibration so that disks stacked close together don't start causing problems and lots of noise and the error recovery time has been adjusted. The reason behind that latter point is that historically if a drive spent too much time in error recovery it tended to break your raid array.
In operation I found the drive to be very very quiet and performance wise they seemed quicker than my red's.
This drive is ideal for home application in nas enclosures with up to four disks I would say. Beyond that you should really start looking at Enterprise grade drives.
Overall a fantastic drive available in high capacities.
In my Synology NAS they are inaudible and seem to take Data on board very quickly. Viewing films and Videos has been smooth with no delay. All back-up tasks have gone without a hitch.
The thing I was most impressed with however was the packaging by the seller Inkubus Bargains. Each drive came in a stout cardboard box that wasn't ridiculously large. There was the usual brown paper scrunched packing but the drive itself was housed in a sort of see through inflatable plastic box with a little air stopper on it. This packing total isolated the drive from any knocks and bashes. I was able to re use the box for an external hard drive I sent to my daughter and she too remarked how good it was. Well done Incubus, you can order this item confident that it will not get damaged in transit.
I've had them running in a mirrored pair for a while now in my home server. I run Plex on the server with my film and music collection, thus used most evenings. They also get used for daily backups of my laptop.
So far they have performed perfectly. They aren't the fastest disks in the world (but then they are for NAS not gaming), however they keep up with everything I need. They are also very quiet which is a huge bonus for home systems.
The real test will be if they are still working 3 to 4 years down the line. However if you are looking for some very quiet, high quality disks for a home NAS/media server/backup server etc then these are great.
