Bought a couple of these about 6 months ago and shucked them for the bare drives which were ST8000DM004 models.

 

They are both now starting to show read errors.

 

Just a warning to others.

Did you preclear or do other extensive testing before putting into your array?

So bad.

Seems Amazon customer comment also report not reliable, so I haven't buy one even price / speed also good.

For whatever it's worth note that these models have a <55TB/year workload rating, i.e., just the monthly parity check will put them considerably over that.
