Are 4TB drives reliable?(As in 90%+ chance of lasting 5 years)

My 1TB isn't cutting it anymore.
>>
I got a 5TB drive for $120. I'm hoping it will lasts 4 years.

By that time, 5TB+ SSD should be affordable replacement.

Is that an SSD that uses PCI slots? How does that work?
>>
>>52483348
950 Pro is great for the first 90 seconds you use it until it starts thermally throttling, senpai.

>>52483376
m.2 slot does 4x PCIe signaling, using NVMe storage device protocol.

you can buy like $15 PCIe passive card with a slot for these drives, and the host doesn't care.

Those speeds are insane. I thought my regular SSD was fast, but 2,500 MB/s?!

>>52484360
most SSDs don't really see that sort of throughput, since you need a shit-ton of I/Os in flight to reach it (like queue depths in the mid dozens).

that usually means multiple concurrent worker threads on a server, or really big linear reads with effective prefetching.

for doing normal workstation things like project builds from lots of little text files, there will be zero perceptible difference from SATA SSDs, since 99%+ of the time the disk will be idle while the worker threads are just working in RAM before deciding what to open/read next.
>>
>>52484509
That's a good point. What if someone has very little RAM would they get a performance boost with this? Not the case for me, I'm just curious.

i guess it could minimize impact of having small file caches, but you'd have to be a retard paying for an SSD before you have an appropriate amount of RAM.

you'd also need to address the obvious related issue of whether the hypothetical low-RAM user was using the SSD for swap as well or not.
low RAM and no swap = you're gonna have a bad time
>>
The best way is to buy whatever HDD you want and the use dd to write random data to it for a week straight and see if its still alive afterwards. Without any reallocated sectors. My 4tb had 190hours of on time before I put any data on it

Pretty much. The most reliable I've found is the Hitachi DeskStar 7K4000.

>>52483348
SSDs are brilliant, and outclass HDs in sub-terabyte storage (such as system disks), but are still not yet cost-effective in the bulk-storage department.

>>52485347
This (burn-in) is a good idea. Shit drives usually die quicker.

>Shit drives usually die quicker.
Failure's usually within the first month or so, else most drives last 3+ years.
If a drive survives a few days or random writes it's nearly always good to last.
I say nearly in an almost legal context, they're bloody always good to last.

I have two 5TB drives. A external Seagate and Internal Toshiba. For a few months I've traveled with the Seagate (it even got tossed a little bit) and it's still fine. The Toshiba I've had since this past summer is fine too.

I can't wait until the seagate's warrenty ends and I can finally pull the hard drive out.

I use mostly Western Digital drives in my pc, mainly WD Green drives. They're not as fast as a Seagate drive but if you need a 4tb any WD Green, Purple or Red will do just fine. I've never been able to kill a Western Digital drive if that helps in anyway.

4TB drives are fine. DON'T get 3TB drives, they have a significantly higher failure rate.
>>
>>52483348
That depends on what he needs the storage for.
If he wants to lock up a drive into a safe or a plastic box, and keep it there for like a year or more as with all backup drives till he pulls it out again to use it,
then an SSD is the worst piece of shit for that kind of thing as you need to charge it from time to time in order for the data to be maintained, and an HDD will always have a massively larger data decay endurance with magnetic particles compared to an SSD that depends on quantum physics and electrical charges.

WD and HGST are the best HDDs you can buy. Some Toshiba drives are built with older Hitachi equipment, so they're pretty good, too. Get the NAS drives. Stick with even TB drives if you can; something about the 2/3 TB platters is fucky. In my experience, higher end SSDs last a long ass time so long as you don't use them for general storage.

I believe it's the platter configuration, either way I'm currently using a 3TB External HDD, been using it for about a year now. So far, no quirks, honestly I've beaten the shit out of it too, so I consider myself really lucky.

Poe's law is eluding me. So you are saying the data wasn't intact as a matter of common fact due to age?
I'm asking this because i haven't faced the situation, and want to know from people who have left an HDD to "lay in the dust" for 2 years or more on their experiences regarding whether data actually managed to survive through the time or not.
>>
>>52491076
It isn't about 3TB drives failing frequently. It's about them failing roughly twice as much as 4TB ones. Any hard drive on the market is likely to work perfectly fine for as long as you'd want to use it, but that doesn't mean your chances are equal between whatever you pick.

STEM is a meme for people who are poor but managed to get into college and want to be firmly middle class by the time they're 30. The real way to go is to study STEM but use the resources you are provided by your university to develop and patent your own shit, and then live as a NEET on royalties. If you have a 90+ IQ you shouldn't need to work at all past age 30 to maintain a comfortable standard of living.
