Best 16TB Hard Drive for a NAS if they all have the same price

Hi,

I’m about to join the NAS world after a fiasco and bad experience with a fairly new hard drive which failed after a long trip.

I’m planning to get one of the Newegg 16TB hard drives currently on sale. It’s offering 20% discount for International purchases with BTPay.

I really don’t know which one to get. My personal experience with Western Digital has been the best (not a single one has failed except for the last), and the only 2 Seagate drives I ever had had some failure in less than a year. I have no experience with Toshiba.

I would like to get the WD, but Seagate affordbale Data Recovery Services (more that I have to pay for a data recovery service) are tempting me and the Toshiba ones are a bit cheaper ($4 less). They all have 5 years warranty and are designed for 24/7 operations.

What are your thoughts?

  1. Almost 80 votes, thank you all for participating! I was going to purchase the WD Ultrastar, but now it’s out of stock in Newegg!

    Fortunately, the $200 deal for 14tb in US is now available in Amazon and with shipping to the country I live, giving me basically that same deal with no additional cost.
    I think I’ll pull the trigger with this one. Many people don’t recommend buying through Newegg, but I had to because it was my only choice. That’s no longer the case. Thanks!

  2. Consider buying only on price with a renewed focus on backups. Forget brands…unless you purchase for specific energy savings.

    Backups are best, but are often time and money sinks. Raid 1 or Drivepool are less reliable alternatives…but real world sometimes is compromise.

    Many alternatives in use here, some might be considered exotic. Drivepool with a standalone backup (minimum 3 drives) measures up pretty well to anything out there – and it’s simple.

    Lots of copies keep stuff safe.

  3. If you take a look at the Backblaze stats for hard drive failure rates: https://www.backblaze.com/b2/hard-drive-test-data.html

    One thing I’ve concluded with the rates on drives is that failure rates tend to follow *models* of hard drives, and not manufacturers.

    For example, look at this: https://www.backblaze.com/blog/backblaze-drive-stats-for-q3-2021/

    The Seagate model ST14000NM0138 (which was apparently from Dell storage servers) had a really high failure rate of just over 6%, or roughly 1 in 16 drives would fail prematurely. That’s pretty high. But another 14 TB Seagate mode, ST14000NM001G, had one of the lowest failure rates.

    Also, the number of hard drives a person buys is statistically insignificant to this sample size, so while you can infer an overall failure rate based on a model, your experience may vary significantly from that overall failure rate.

    The lesson? Avoid the hard drives with the really high failure rates. Otherwise, just make sure you have plenty of redundancy in your solution (RAID6 not RAID5, spares, etc.)

  4. Either the WD or the Toshiba. Both are excellent drives (I own both).

    The Seagate is probably ok, but I try to stay clear of Seagate.
