Thread: NAS problems

Hard drives can have some funny hiccups @ all times of their service life. I perhaps consider myself lucky to have had 3 x 500GB Seagate Barracudas running in RAID0 for 5 years now....

I've had a brand new 2TB Barracuda spin up & Die whilst formatting..... the replacement lasted a week so I bought a 3TB WD Red instead & it's been fine since.

@ DC

Glad you got sorted in the end fella. Fingers crossed for you getting the old drive fixed under warranty. - Nice one!

Got a reply from HGST. As they don't have these disks anymore, they proposed to send me a G-Drive external HDD as replacement. I agreed. Anyone knowing these ones? Amazon sells them for 164.

I've not heard of them, but I like the case design. Could be handy for something like console backups?

I think I'm just gonna sell it straight away, as I don't need it.

Good idea. If still sealed in the box it will be worth more to resell too.

Yeah, same here with no user base knowledge either.

However, it is raved about in several places & is aimed at the MAC sector.

Perhaps it might be worth hanging on to until you have read a bit more. Check this review out & there are loads in Google.
