Does anyone know of an updated, unbiased resource to find failure rates which include?:

 

WD Red Pro 10TB

Seagate IronWolf Pro 10 or 12 TB

Toshiba N300 10TB

HGST 10TB

 

 

If so, please share.

 

Additionally, if anyone knows where one can even purchase the n300 10TB please share that as well.

 

 

Thank you for taking the time to read.

I think it's going to be difficult to get decent data on drives that haven't been around for a long time.

We haven't seen any large number of early deaths from any of the drives  - so no obvious hint of their production quality or longevity.

 

You will know more about these disks sometime when it's time to decide on the best 25-30 TB disk on the market.

Considering it's pretty difficult to find anywhere with decent stock of 10TB drives, I'd guess probably not.

 

I'm still buying 8TB drives (mostly HGST Deskstar NAS, which are nice helium drives similar to the Red Pro).  Had no problems with any of them, including shucked WD Whites (80EZZX) which are well over 18 months old now.
