I always run WD drives from the Caviar to the Greens. Now I am looking for 12+TB drives and only option seem to be Enteprisedrives. I was looking for the former HGST drives which now is renamed WD Ultrastar DC HC5xx 512e/4Kn SE and non SE-models. I suppose the WD Ulstrastar DC HC520 512e is the one i should get? I also looked at the Seagate Exos X12 and X14 drives (dunno the difference between the two except the last one is newer).

Which one should i get? Then there's Hitachi and Toshiba but it seems they are getting rarer and rarer and the Toshiba X300 doesn't seem to be in the same category as the two above.

WD's Gold high capacity drives are usually rebadged HGST helium models. One way to identify them is by the WWN on the label.

Be careful of this ...

A new twist to IntelliPower?

Does your preferred drive spin at 5400 RPM drive ("Green") or 7200 RPM? My thread addresses this question.

In short, "5400 RPM class" does not necessarily mean "5400 RPM", so if you really want a 5400 RPM drive, then be aware that some "5400 RPM class" models spin at 7200 RPM during reading and writing.

What are you smoking? Where have I said anything about rpm? If i was after a 5400rpm i would have stated that in my initial post. I am after those models i mentioned or alternative Enterprise drives. There are no consumer drive with 12TB maybe except the Toshiba X300 drives.
