    Seagate 3.5 HDD (Helium) reviews

    12TB Exos X12 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" Internal HDD is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seagate enterprise series drives are reliable. I have used Seagate enterprise series drives for my archival needs for many years.� Used to be call the ES series.� They are very durable & reliable. Do not use consumer drives.� They are not in the same league.� The electronics components quality used in the Enterprise series is much higher than the consumer ones.� Do not believe those who said its merely a firmware difference on the net. Get the Seagate Enterprise series drives if you cherish your data.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loud and a bit slow For years I've used 4 3TB Seagate drives in an OWC enclosure in RAID 5. Now repeated that set-up with these 12TB drives. Unfortunately they're much louder than the 3TB drives from several years ago (can't recall the version name), constantly making that crunchy "seeking" sound. As I use the drive for video editing, this was a problem. Also, this drive responds a bit slower than the older drives, making it hard to play edits with several composited visual tracks (older, smaller RAID plays it no problem). I wonder if this is due to the drives being much larger. I don't know if the noise is also related to the drive size. Ultimately decided to use this as a back-up system rather than the main editing system. I trust Seagate for reliability, just too bad about the noise and slight lag time.
