Seagate do not honor warranty
I purchased 12 of these 20TB drives in 2022. One failed after 17 months. Seagate claim someone else RMA'd it, and after I showed them proof I still have it, they now say their software that allows correcting the warranty period hasn't been working for a month and they cannot process a replacement drive. While checking out the warranties for the other 11 drives, they claim that one of them is a child of an enclosure, and they will not honor the warranty for this drive should the need arise. I am hoping B&H can figure out what's going on with these issues and resolve them. Until then - 1*.
Great Product, Great Delivery
I order 6 of these drive to go into my Asustor Gen 2 6 bay Lockerstor. They arrived quickly, in OEM boxes nicely protected and wrapped. They are in the NA, very quiet and seem to run quite cool for such a big drive. This does take the Asustor NAS a substantial amount of time to make the large RAID 6 drive. Very pleased so far. B&H is one of my goto places for hardware.
Seagate IronWolf pro has been my HDD of choice for a while now. I have travel with a small NAS for work and these hold up great. No symptoms of wear and tear from being in a car or plane or being shipped. I normally run RAID 0 or RAID 10 depending on the data.
A great HDD ... !!!
One of the best storage options out there for digital images ... !!!
Quiet and relianble
I purchased two of these hard drives to replace a couple of smaller capacity for my Drobo 5N. I quickly replaced the existing drives and inserted the new ones. After two weeks they are running flawlessly and my backup has much more available space now.
Great reliability and price
I've bought two of these now. Its a lot of storage on one drive. I bought a rugged case for them and price wise its a lot of bang for the buck.
So far, so good!
I haven't had these for a long period. I installed 8 of them into a Synology DS1821+ NAS and although the specific firmware and model weren't in the Synology compatibility list, they work just fine. The DS1821+ is an 8-bay NAS, and I wanted something larger than what I had so I was looking at 10~20TB drives. I simply did the match and the 18TB drive met the sweet spot for price / TB. All 8 drives came up and are working just fine and at speeds I would expect, so well within my acceptance range. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend these to anyone... and coming from B&H, I know they're not going to be some random, used off-the-back-of-the-truck leftovers with no warranty. So I felt safe in ordering them from B&H along with a Synology DS1821+ for important backup storage.
For my money, I did not find anything better
I use two of these drives for temporary storage of work photos in RAID 1 when traveling. They work great, although a little noisy, especially in a quiet environment like a hotel room at night.
