Reliable Seagate Archive 6TB Hard Drive is designed for long-term storage. It is characterized by energy efficiency and low TCO. SMR (Shingled Magnetic Recording) technology allows you to move further in the physically limited storage area, by layering them to a higher level of storage space.

Seagate Archive 6000 is ideal for archiving data in datacenters during 24/7 operation . However, its attractive price will find its way to ordinary users who appreciate its great price / TB ratio. Any unsaved data that needs to be backed up can be stored on this disk. There is no need for unpopular photos and videos to be stored on multiple cloud storage, but it's possible to have everything on one disk and at home.

My choice fell on it for a price that is great, but the conversion capacity by far the best on the market today. Functions no problems, but this is after a month and a half of hard to evaluate. Physical installation is hit on the missing hole - what the world began, have tipped the sides after three holes (in addition to the bottom two, although I saw only once, that would be the bottom of attaching disk). But Czech man can handle, špalíček it easily remedied. Sw installation was largely without problems (I never thought that the controller in total new PC (~ 2011) ends with 2TB, yet there I was expanding controller that does not have this limit, so all we had to shovel the cables). Formatting, and so it's just a routine (under current OS W7 or Mint). No other phenomena described here not observed, although most would probably not even noticed. The speed is usually about one hundred (100Mb / s) when you think about it, I saw several other discs, but it's not for me the main thing.
Excellent price / capacity - only what is below the crown per gigabyte (the last few years unattainable) High capacity Missing middle few notches (mounting holes)

I know what this is intended HDD - for archiving data, nevertheless has dissembled write speeds. 150MB / s I have not achieved even by accident, copying 1TB of data (mostly photos, files, thus having a size of 12 to 40 megabytes) lasted 10 hours (!). Writing speed to the end of copying was 30 megabytes / sec. Larger files (movies-about 1.5 gigabytes five gigabytes) HDD while writing a somewhat faster, about 50 to 60 megabytes / sec, but even so it is not 150MB / s as indicated by the manufacturer's website.
Extensive cost per TB disk Very slow disk

After some years he left the old disk to the computer (I will not discuss here the end of the disc 25 months after the purchase, it would have belonged to another location). So I was looking for a replacement. This intrigued me high apacity with a price that does not crown per gigabyte (ie normal flood level in a factory disk head) .This is not a disk, which would be designed primarily as working. That name itself "archive" suggests. Manufacturer's but its datasheet does not forbid it even has a list of possible applications, only draws attention to a possible less power (and perhaps the life - I do not know how much is too little or MTBF of one year in operation with current drives). As someone wrote disc lacks one pair of attachment holes commonly used and thus is a high likelihood of problems during installation. As it turned out, it's not the only problem. Because we have a fairly new computer, I joined the disk instead of the original controller, normally on the MB. Drive normally found (in bios i OS). But it did not work satisfactorily, the disc is occasionally disconnected and no longer "exist" only helped to suspend and resume your computer (this Jiankou connect removable disks). That's also someone wrote something similar, except I do not have the equipment or knowledge to find the cause. I therefore join disk to an external controller in a PCIe who I am because of interchangeable disks (so that I can connect and disconnect without shutting down), and the fault until this weekend showed. He just refused to reconnect the drive. So I shoveled cables. That would be bad sata cable - it seems to me, as another drive on it functions smoothly. The disc is relatively slow. It begins promisingly speed of around 100 (megabytes per second), but the buffer is full speed drops below 50, and gradually up to unusable speeds (well below 10). This matters most when burning DVD and BD. I can not remember when I had fired BD 50 minutes (thankfully rate decreases gradually and burner will handle without the media knowing it). Meanwhile wrote it copies files to compile other place. In doing so overheated that I would not otherwise seduce, due to the location of a massive mědědém box heeled water (currently ~ 27 ° C) does not come into consideration (according to a SMART disk to 30 ° C). Next thing surprised me is the sound of "seekování" that I remember from old computers. I've long used to the fact that the disk can not be heard despite the quietest fan, this is heard even if it is not so bad. The disk has to be designed for archiving, ie. Long-term storage. For this purpose, certainly do not mind the noise and maybe even slow (depending on the size and number of archived files).
Excellent value against capacity High capacity A lot of money, poor function Slow

High capacity and a very favorable price per GB probably due to high density writing and good rate compared to other economical disks, the hdd benchmarkach better results than other 7200rpm drives very noisy 40 db just after the spin, while reading ... 45 db sound when writing I had not tested it, after checking the surface, I unplugged it and returned, markedly louder than the fan to my PC .... maybe wrong piece, as well as new Seagate drive I have several (eg SV35 and 4TB SSHD - but again, sometimes chattering), and no, not even at 7200rpm is not so noisy, I also noticed a reduced speed during a control surface, but not significantly so (it is but logical when checked from outside to inside, at the same rotational speed at the outside reads per revolution more data)

capacity Gradual degradation of performance + fluctuating speed over a longer period (30 min.), sometimes hundreds kB / s, the bus reset disk unusable, CRC errors I can not recommend.
