I had 4 arrive yesterday, all were Jan 2018 with almost 30k power on hours, ~15 start/stop cycles, ~165 TB written. Currently using with an LSI 9207-8i in IT mode. So far so good! Hope they last at least another 30-50k hours.

it's very interesting also to see that the amount of data written on these drives are a lot more than the amount read. Wonder what kind of operation they were in to have so much more byte written compared to read.

You can use these with a SAS2 card?

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

plotting no. farming, probably.

However Chia has only really existed just over a year, and these are much older so who knows what they were used for.

Ive been watching this listing now for a while. 7,755 drives sold.

Now at the nice price of $99.95.

I want to get in on this, but I still have like 25 x 8TB drives I bought during the 8TB craze. I think I will skip and wait for deals on the 12 and 14TB drives.

But I must say, this is not a bad deal for some decent drives.

That is a lot of DVR movie library to fill up the lot of over 7000 of the 10TB HDD that this seller is selling...lol..
and checking their bay inventory - they have 22570 available as of this post. my guess you might be able to store every single episode of law and order, their spinoffs, ncis & their spinoffs, and probably coronation street! LOL....

so where the heck did they acquire 30K 10TB drives?
