The Seagate Desktop HDD 6TB is one of the most impressive drives when it comes to performance. Apart from the hiccups seen in random write workloads the drive really cements itself as the performance leader in the consumer market. Putting this drive up against all the 4TB solutions we have seen over the last year and half, I was pleasantly surprised to see it surge past the performance of the WD Black and yet do it using less power.
Build quality of the drive seems to be quite good, there were no workload stopping clicks or crashes during testing. Though during testing I did notice this drive does get a bit on the hot side, so it would be a good idea make sure you have adequate airflow for operation. Then who can blame it, it does have six platters spinning at 7200 RPM inside.
With those six platters I also assumed there would be a bit more noise to the drive, but remarkably it was a pretty silent solution. Running the drive through all workloads produced very minimal noise.
Overall, the 6TB Desktop HDD from Seagate is a great solution and reason for all of us to dump our low capacity drives and start enjoying both high capacity and high performance in one solution!
The Seagate Desktop HDD 6TB in kit form carries an MSRP of $299.99 with a two-year warranty.
