    HGST Ultrastar He10 - 10TB @ $129.95

    Yep, I'll give that a shot. In the meantime, I'll also go through a full burn-in test (smart short/long tests and bad blocks) on these drives on a separate system just to be sure. Thanks

    HGST Ultrastar He10 - 10TB @ $129.95

    And now a third??? I'm starting to think it might not be the drives. So far, I have 3 drives from a batch of 10 giving me a "FIRMWARE IMPENDING FAILURE SEEK ERROR RATE TOO HIGH" during resilvering. Thats too much of a coincidence to me. I got another 3 so far operating fine without errors and...

    Backups and Chia plotting come to mind. Guess Chia it isn't.

All 1tb SSDs with pictures of...

    14 TB WD Easystore $200 @BestBuy

    Too bad about the coupon, I was hoping to get some more later. Bought 3 of them with the 15% coupon. Just finished testing, chucking, and installing them last night. Got 5 total in a ZFS Z2 array. About the chucked adapters, they've worked for pretty much any drive I've put in them. The...

    18TB HGST Ultrastar 550 $348

    As Samir mentioned, if you fully test them prior to storing them, I can't really see them experiencing issues being stored for two years. Mine were stored between six and seven years and of various ages. I always store them horizontally.

    18TB HGST Ultrastar 550 $348

    I think it does matter. All my drives were in good working condition when they were stored in the cabinet. After letting them sit for a couple of years, some exhibited issues regardless of if they had data or not. One of these only had about two thousand hours of use. I believe it is possible...

    18TB HGST Ultrastar 550 $348

    I usually do leave various spares on hand at work in case they're needed, but only after verifying the drives are healthy and never beyond their warrantied date. They usually get used before that happens though. Personal unscientific experience for me at home though: I have a moderate number...

    14 TB WD Easystore $200 @BestBuy

    Yep, I know what you mean. But when you get to a point where you have your own personal musem of hundreds of drives with a variety of interfaces, sizes, makes and models, you have no choice but to recycle them at some point. For most of my drives I do a full run of badblocks on my drives before...

    Thanks for the tip. I took 3 drives in to recycle and got 3 coupons. Bought 2 drives and used two of the coupons without issue. Still have a third one waiting to be used :D

    64GB INNODISK SATADOM - $15

    Got mine yesterday. Came clean in antistatic bag, but in a very lightly padded envelope. Would've preferred it was in a small box. Time to run some tests.

    Those are 12V. You would need 5V connectors.

    Sure looks like there was sudden urge for those brackets :oops: The high profile brackets are still sold out and there's only 10 left of the low profile. There's gonna be a lot of unsatisfied customers.

    EXPIRED 817753 B21HPB HPE Ethernet-10-25Gb-2-port-640SFP28-Adapter $9.99 - Sold Out

    Oh well, canceling my order. Edit: Yep, it was just the bracket. Got my order canceled and ask them if they could update the description since it's very confusing.
