The Seagate drives aren't looking good, It seems their 4, 8 & 12tb drives have had bad reliability issues,
I just bought a 6tb Seagate Barracuda myself, I've been getting buyers remorse as I've seen the 6tb WD Red on sale for only an extra £20 since then which the extended warranty alone would justify.

As well as the new 6tb drive I have a 3tb Seagate drive installed, along with a 1tb WD Red I could install.
I also have a pair of broken 2tb Seagate drives. One was my fault & I'm not sure about the other.

Nasha~

Yep. I definitely wouldn't be buying Seagate anymore after reading that article and hearing about your own personal failures.

From what I get from those statistics is that Seagate drives are actually pretty good, going by the annualized failure rate.

I myself never used a drive over 2 TB yet, but the only failures I had where two WD drives. My Barracudas are just chugging along nicely. My 500GB one is almost 8 years old now, without any issue.
