For those of you interested in the speed of this drive I didn't run bench marks but instead decided to put it through real-world use case of backing up files.
I took an assortment of data ranging from pictures, documents audio files, isos etc and timed the transfer from a server running ZFS with 2 mirrored pairs (4 X 4TB NAS drives). This data was approximately 245GiB. It took 31M 54s to complete
Rough math breaks that down to approximately 7.7 GiB/minute or 127MiB/second
Next I took media files that were all over several hundred MiB. I transferred 8.5TB in 15.3 hours.
That is roughly 555GiB/hour or 9.25GiB/minute or 154MiB/second
I thought this was impressive that over 15 hours the drive did not suffer any speed slow down on the big files.
From the hardware, the case is ok, but it lacks any active cooling and the case itself feels like plastic. That means it does not do a fantastic job of dissipating the heat. As I do not plan on using this drive constantly, but rather as a drive that goes in a fireproof safe, this is acceptable.
NOTE: the command 'blockdev --getbsz /dev/sdd' which gets the physical block sizes of the drive reported 512 bytes. I'm shocked at this as I thought most modern drives had moved to at least 4096.
Overall this drive performs well for the price and will serve its purpose
Works fantastic for ZFS or any other NAS. However, I DO NOT recommend this for day to day home use. Since it's an Enterprise drive, it is NOISY. Like, obnoxiously noisy if it's supposed to sit on your desk next to you. Just fine however for a home server or small NAS tucked away in a closet somewhere.
I own several Seagate "Desktop" external hard drives and this has legitimately been my worse experience by far. I had tried contacting Seagate through email on their website and everytime you try to submit an email, you receive an error message preventing you from doing so.
I had contacted Seagate via phone and after 30 minutes, I had managed to get someone but had been hung up on immediately. I contacted Amazon afterwards and they offered to assist me by calling Seagate for their warranty process. After waiting for around 20 minutes, I was able to get transferred to someone who advised me they had to get someone to call me back and that their customer service line was closing in half an hour (6pm CST) and that they would have someone call me the following Monday since they are closed on the weekends. I waited 2 weeks and no one followed up with me. Called them back and had to wait 1.5 hours to speak to someone, who offered to send me a replacement. I was ecstatic to not have to deal with this nightmare anymore. I guess Seagate likes to prove me wrong. I was sent a replacement drive that works; however after a few minutes of file transfer activity the drive disconnects itself and I receive an error that states "Error 0x8007045D. This request could not be performed because of an I/O device error". In order to get the drive to be detected, I have to completely disconnect it from my PC and remove it from my outlet for several minutes and reconnect it after a PC restart. Further attempts of transferring any files to the drive inevitably leads to the same error. I would like to emphasize there is nothing wrong with my PC as I own several external hard drives with Seagate, and I have never experienced this issue with any of them before. I had replied to an email they had sent me with the case number (as per my request during my phone call so that I could email them moving forward instead) to notify them of this issue and it's been over a week and I have still have not had a response. By the time I get a working product (assuming I actually do), I will have spent at least a month trying to get a working product. To receive 2 faulty products is not an anomaly; clearly there is an issue with their manufacturing and quality control regarding this specific model so I would advise you to just stay away, especially with something that costs almost $300.
Standong up, on it's side, upside down, as soon as you put it on the desk the sound is transmitted to it an amplified to a point that I turn it off. plus it in, drop files and shut it off as soon as it's done. Maybe the drive will last an eternity that way but sheeesh! Way too noisy!

Por conta do aquecimento do disco eu tive de deixar um um ventilador apontado para a unidade para conseguir fazer um backup de 4tb.
A Seagate deveria incluir um pequeno ventilador na carcaça da unidade. A ventilação passiva não é suficiente para manter o disco rígido abaixo da temperatura máxima de trabalho.
As soon as I plugged it in there was an immediate and noticeable difference, it was LOUD. Now don't get me wrong you can expect small noises on reads/writes on drives but this was constant even when the drive wasn't doing anything. Compared to my other two drives I couldn't stand it so had to send away for a refund and will look to purchase a 10TB drive from another supplier.
FYI, I ran the seawater diagnostics on the drive and there was no issue. I ran the random read test on both this drive and my 2TB one at the same time and the difference was night and day. I had the drive located in a separate bedroom and it was loud enough to break up my sleep.
