Seagate SMR drives - Never Again!


#1

Cost per TB may okay, but never again will I use these! Plotting is not only slow, but like a snail.

Never use these! Going back to WD only drives.

I stared with 4x 2TB WD drives, Added different WD drives on different machines, then i made the mistake of buying a few of these Seagate SMR drives. 2 days to plot a single TB? Really!

Horrible drives!

wow you got pretty excited there, the drives are fine, just plot to a internal drive (non smr) and copy over the files, way faster.
