ST1000DM003: good hard drive?

Unread postby Y888099 » Mon Apr 10, 2017 1:23 am

ST1000DM003: Seagate Barracuda, SATA 6G, 7200RPM, 3,5" - 1 TB

I need an hundred hard drives for a customer, 1TB each.
(caring the data center's needs, it's not my job, in the theory
but I have discount, so ... they ask me, and I can't say no)

What do you think about ST1000DM003 ?
reliable enough ?

The model I am using is older.

Guess I've become bitter in the last few years but I start to agree with foetz here... viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16727491#p7357986

Why should we be doing your paid job for you? It isn't even SGI related...

If you want my opinion then it's a common model made by a popular manufacturer. Of course it's good ;)

So, you are actually doing my paid job (I am an EDA guy) just providing an advice/feedback/opinion which I am asking here and which might be useful to whom needs a good and reliable sATA hard drive.

Well, imagine a guy who wants to buy a Stardom Raidsonic SR7650-4S-U3D (not me). It's U320 SCSI, perfect for Octane, Fuel, Tezro, etc and it comes with 4x SATA bays. Now, the topic is SGI related.

Well when you asked about this just last week I mentioned some of backblaze's reliability studies... viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16730589&p=7399364#p7399364

The problem is they don't work with disks as small as 1TB anymore as it is not economical for them.

In general I have good luck with HGST drives. I have two 4TB HGST disks in my fileserver. I have a 1TB external G-Drive (Hitachi consumer brand) at home. But what does that mean? I would have good luck with probably any vendor with such low quantities and usage profile.

The only hard disks I have ever had fail in my entire life was a Seagate, a Toshiba, and a Quantum Fireball. TIOLI.

You mention you are doing this for a customer... which implies a paid job.

Exactly the reason why I am specifically asking about the ST1000DM003: it's 1TB!
