I Will say one of the fastest hdd out there. If i remember correctly. Seagate has a hdd with two read heads in one hdd. It's Calle Mach.2. That shut be the world's fastest hdd out there.

There is a downside to the gold hdd. As it is intended for server marked. It is not a silent hdd by any means. It's meant for performance and not silence. So if you are after a silent hdd. WD Gold is not recommended.

Did some speed tests with my server. This is over a dedicated 10GbE link using two Mellanox ConnectX-3 NICs and a copper SFP+ cable, and the server has eight 5400RPM WD Reds in RAID Z1.



It's interesting how larger files affect performance. The 1GB transfer was hitting the speed limit of 10GbE, while the 4GB test is more indicative of what my array is capable of.

I know that ZFS likes to use memory as a cache, so maybe this is the first sign that 8GB isn't enough memory for my server. Maybe the 1GB transfer is able to fit entirely in my server's memory, while the 4GB file isn't and is coming directly off the HDD array. That would explain the worse random R/W performance.

My 8TB WD White was capable of close to 200MB/s when it was empty. Also, definitely not a silent or cool-running drive, and I think WD falsely marks it as a 5400RPM drive, when it's actually 7200RPM.

Here's a screenshot I took when I first got the drive back in May 2019. This was in my old X470 system.



This drive is currently sitting on a shelf patiently waiting for me to use it again.

There have been cases where wd advatized 5400 RPM and the drive was actually 7200 RPM.

200 MB/s is fine for a HDD.

Look in my post. I have a WD Red 4 TB from 2018. It can do nearly 190 MB/s when empty. but HDD will never be a match for an SSD,

If SSD prices came down to same level as HDD pr. gigabyte. I would drop HDD instantly and only run with SSD.

Oh, absolutely. Until that happens though, my current plan is to move my main system's HDD into my server so I can have exclusively solid-state storage in it.

I also want to grab another two 1TB Crucial MX500s and upgrade my SSD array in my main system.

Crucial SSD gets my reccomendation. I have since 2011 only used Crucial and Samsung SSD. Never had a SSD failed on me. I´m around to have had 15 SSD since 2011. Yes i was an early adapter.

@QuietBob Thanks for the suggestion.
I mention right away that the interface used was SATA II, unfortunately my PC's motherboard doesn't have SATAIII on board.

Yeah its clearly limited by sata 2.

But have you seen the warning crystal Disk info?

You might have a failing/dying HDD/SSD.

I will study in the future to exchange all HDs for SSDs.

Random read at 4K QD1 looks good. It should do well as a boot drive. And yeah, keep an eye on that hard drive which says "caution". Definitely do a full backup.
