Consumers with middling desktops typically have a combination of an SSD and a 4-6TB drive for data storage.On another note it looks like the manufacturers are focusing mostly on the enterprise sector. Makes sense given that SSDs these days are cheap enough and large enough for most non-enterprise users.
Ahhhhhh fond memories of my friend's Seagate ST-225, 20MB HDD. I was eventually rocking a ST-238R RLL 30 MB HDD.I just want to know who is going to be the first to roll out a modern 5.25" half height drive with like 14 platters in it. They could probably get 25TB+ in one.
It was the same with the 10TB helium drives. I don't know why, since the Enterprise Capacity drives have a higher MTBF and almost twice the duty rating for TB written/year.BTW, locally, the SATA version of the Seagate Enterprise Capacity Helium 12TB drive is slightly cheaper than either the Barracuda Pro or the Ironwolf Pro at similar capacity. The choice seems obvious.
I know that the He drives are generally cooler and use less power, but are they quieter than comparable air-filled drives?It was the same with the 10TB helium drives. I don't know why, since the Enterprise Capacity drives have a higher MTBF and almost twice the duty rating for TB written/year.
