Choosing 8TB HDDs for NAS Upgrade

Servers - www.overclock.net
Hi all,

So my NAS with a gross total of 40TB has some 2TB drives in there that are getting on in age. Samsung HD204UIs to be exact with over 51000 hours on them:

The drive config is basically a mirror of every drive, no RAID. I've had two drives go out in the past couple of years, and swapping in a new one is as easy as duplicating the mirror onto a new HDD:

All the primary drives are pooled together using DriveBender:

I'm wanting to move to Four 8TB drives, which will also open up spaces for expansion. Trying to decide amongst the variations of these 3:

Toshiba N300 8TB NAS HDD

WD Red 8TB NAS HDD

Seagate 8TB IronWolf NAS HDD

"Shingled" drives are a no-go for me. 5400RPM may be preferable over 7200RPM. Other than that, reliability is of utmost importance, more than power consumption. I'm sure 4 8TB drives will use less power than my current stack no matter what they are.

Cheers! '); }
