i wonder what year your hdd's are from, i wonder if seagate has indeed got their reliability up, of course i would use a 18tb drive but i would need to use 2 more 18tb drives for redundant storage as well. personally i dont see how everyone has no storage needs, no one has personal photo / video or cartoons saved up from the years or anything, just your small steam game library and your happy! lulz at higher capacity ssd, just need lower priced ssd if anything or hdd's with ssd's built into them? (never used any of the hybrids personally but im sure they work pretty good)I just wish they would work on quality and reliability, as 3 of the last 5 Seagates I've purchased have been faulty. I know there are other options, but I've always like Seagate.
