Hi,

 

I want to know if anyone knows the difference(s) between the seagate 4tb hdds named ST4000DM000 and ST4000VN000. One has the "NAS drive" mention so I guess they are made for NAS use (vibration dampening). However, since NAS drives are always more expensive than "normal" drives for the same capacity, and since both of these hover around the same prices, I don't feel there's much actual differences between the two. 

 

Also, I currently have a ST4000DM000. Would it be compatible with the other one for raid 1 use ?

 

Thanks,

The NAS one basically has extra stuff to make sure it works correctly in a NAS environment.

Such as running 24/7, reliability etc

 

The other one is just a basic desktop drive.

Thanks, will they work together ?

They should, they are essentially exactly the same drive.

Not 100% sure though.

So are they the same or are they not.

In a way yes, but one has extra stuff which allows it to work as a nas drive more effectively than a non nas optimised HDD.

I don't see a reason why you can't raid them, but as I said I'm not 100% sure as I've never done it myself.

Have a look at the spec sheet for the desktop drive (pdf) and the NAS drive (pdf) and
just compare the data and the additional info. It's a bit pointless to just list all
the differences between the two here, you can find them if you look through those
documents. ;)

In general, NAS drives have some firmware optimizations which makes them play nice
with RAID controllers and 24/7 operation. They also tend to use less power and are
sometimes quieter. Vibration hardening is usually more a thing for proper enterprise
disks, at least from what I've read.
