newtonman, this is an identical post from TH and in that post they ask what are your systems specifications, so, if you could provide those it would be easier to give you some feedback from this community. As for an answer, you can do some research online. You may check this for starters.

Speed will be the same, the cost you see in the store you buy it from, and reliability ... well, any HDD can die at any time, essentially. Backups are important.

Anyway I'd still go for the Black as the Barracuda Pro 6/8TB models seem to have noise issues.

some peopla say that black has noises issues i dont know if its true
but my question is black tB will be very good for storage,,games,, movies and music and storage.. also to delete and install games ,, add movies delete movies. and to run the games from the hardisk.,.
. run the movies from this hardisk?

do you believe that black have issues with heat and noise/? do they have good reliability ?
because i see that blacks have very possitive reviews

https://www.amazon.com/Black-Perform.../dp/B0792GSD6N



very positive reviews

can you tell me please//???

3000 persons have very good positive reviews for black

now i dont know if all these 3000 positive reviews are fake but i see that a lot of people prefer the black disks

if you see in the reviews of https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Barr...l-ST10000DM0004/dp/B01IA9H22Q#customerReviews

you see that baraguda pro have less positive reviews from black .

my systems specifications are
i have 4770k

z87 deluxe

16 giga ram

coolermaster maker 1500 watt

widows 10

but why you need my systems specifications?? can yoy tell me please??

It appears that you have already answered your own question? You state that the Black has many positive reviews and that the Seagate has less positive reviews, not sure why you need to ask further when 3000 people have given the Black good reviews.

Also...the WD Black is slightly faster in max. sustained transfer rate...on paper. 227MB/s vs. 220MB/s for the Barracuda Pro.

https://www.seagate.com/www-content/datasheets/pdfs/barracuda-pro-12-tbDS1901-7-1707US-en_US.pdf

I've owned a Barracuda Pro 8TB. It wasn't loud. But it wasn't as fast as I expected it to be either. It was slightly slower than my Toshiba X300 5TB, which only had half the amount of cache(128MB). But it was louder than a jet engine.

does black westen 6TB has problems with failures and heat and very high temperatures?>?

do you believe that Higher performance drives tend to be louder because the seek faster and spin faster??. This does come with higher temperatures as well. and also that they will fail as a result of to higher temperatures. ??

do you believe that all these things can be in the black westen 6TB?? higher temperatures and heat?

Why is it every thread you make you don't really take anyone's answers for what they are worth? It's question upon question and when you get an answer to a question you ask several more.....

Not a single person here can predict the future. Buy what you want, backup like you're supposed to, and hope for the best.

you will not have problems with heat unless you live in the desert and your average daily temp is 100 degrees fahrenheit in the house and run it 24/7 with a constant workload.

short answer, no. you will not have problems with heat. you are not going to be using the drive outside its intended purpose. this thread needs to be closed. the information you seek can be found within the spec sheets of each respectable drive. there are multiple reviews that im sure can be found without much effort ontop of the help you have already received.

good day.

And if he asked at TH and then asked here, perhaps they simply want perspective from more than one group of users. Additionally, system specs are not important. Raw drive performance is.
As for an answer, you can do some research online.
For the record, posting questions in the forums of TPU and TH is a form of online research.
You may check this for starters.
BackBlaze provides only one metric for consideration and focuses on a limited number of model numbers. It ignores everything else.

As a Seagate rep, your presence here needs to be limited to being helpful with people having problems with Seagate products, not attempting to create a bias for inquiring users. That is what the community of users are here for. What you're doing here comes off a bit shady. One would think a company like Seagate would be better than that. :shadedshu:

It appears that you have already answered your own question? You state that the Black has many positive reviews and that the Seagate has less positive reviews, not sure why you need to ask further when 3000 people have given the Black good reviews.
How is that difficult to understand? They've read the reviews and are now asking what the community thinks.

My 2 cents; @newtonman Go with the WD Black. The over-all performance is better for what you pay.

I mean... no. Backblaze is generally biased against Seagate if anything. I don't see what you mean. Pointing users to general statistics not weighted to one brand is harmless (even if that's a bad set of statistics, IMO).

Well it's difficult to understand because as he stated, 3000 people who own the drive rate it very highly, I doubt very much that there are 3000 owners here who regularly post here who would have anywhere near that same level of experience of the drive and when he gets his answer (here and in the other multiple forums he has asked the same question), he appears to ignore them, on top of that, site reviews also appear to concur with the quality and performance, additionally and specific to your point, he has had much community feedback here and seems to be no further forward.

Not sure why you would think 4000 reviewers are fake, especially as all the tech reviews favour the drive and most think it's the best available, there are links to reviews in this thread, surely you have looked at them?
