Their infamous 3TB drives really drove me crazy.  One actually failed in such a way that it would overload the rails on power-up causing my server to power-cycle continuously.  I don't know if it was related, but my motherboard never posted properly after that (intermittent power-up) and had to be replaced; expensive avoton board too!


Haven't had any issues so far (knock on wood) with two 4TB Seagates and a 5TB SMR in the last year.

I've been using the ST4000DM000 seagate desktop drive as my parity drive and it's been great.  I plan on changing it soon though.  Will be buying 2x 6TB WD Red's to use as my parity drives.  I will add the ST4000DM000 back in to the array as a data drive.
