Hard Drive more Video Editing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I want to know is it possible to use Seagate Ironwolf Pro over Barracuda Pro since of the price different. Ironwolf pro is much cheaper than Barracuda Pro. I want to know would there be any loss or issue I might run into if I use it for video editing. Would I suffer data loss or data transfer not fast enough. If possible does the Pro out weight the Con.

 

*I chose Seagate over WD cause Seagate would honor their warranty unlike WD with their excuse of "oh this is an OEM and we don't fix them". Amazon, newegg. bestbuy, B&H and even WD website all sell OEM the only place that sell retail is Microcenter. (I know cause i did deep research with WD model number and found many store just sell OEM).

** I know Backblaze report that seagate has higher failure rate but I rather chose someone with their service if thing goes bad.

 

Here a picture of pcpartpicker on Seagate pro Drive shorted by price.

The Barracuda drives have significantly higher failure rate than the Ironwolf,

The Ironwolf is much better quality,Barracuda drives are pretty much on my garbage tier.

Agreed, I would highly avoid Barracuda drives especially if you are video editing. You could lose all of your footage and projects at moments notice.

 

That's an interesting note on WD drives. I have bought WD drives from Best Buy and Amazon before and have not encountered issues with their warranty service/program. 

 

I am currently using this LaCie RAID hard drive at work and I am loving it - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QD36RSJ/ref=twister_B076DCQJ1W?tag=thedroideffec-20&_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

 

Pair with this ssd for caches - https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-T5-Portable-SSD-MU-PA500B/dp/B073GZBT36/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=samsung+ssd+500gb+portable&qid=1569257225&s=electronics&sr=1-3

The durability of a hard disk is found or defined by the combination of the type of disk purchased and its use given. That is, if you use a machine every day but never turn it off, you will need a hard disk that has the characteristic of staying on 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, if it doesn't have this feature it is more than clear that the chances of the HDD being damaged are higher than when you use a drive manufactured to work 24/7 because the HDD used is not made for that, another example would be to internally use an HDD for writing or recording new data in a daily basis when the hard drive was originally made for external use and projected only to store data that will be accessed a couple of times but still data that is nice to keep as good memory, again, excessive writing will damage the unit because it wasn't made for that. Or also use a consumer projected hard drive in a data center that requires NAS level hard drives and so on...

Video editing is considered heavy workload, the IronWolf Pro will definetely be a good option due to its enterprise like NAS-level performance, but there is also another one that's made for recordings of videos, take a look at the SkyHawk surveillance hard drives too, they also have a very high endurance because of its nature of being manufactured for video recordings:

Doesn't Surveillance drives have lower read speeds but significantly higher write speeds than any other type of HDD?

I would prefer the IronWolf Pro.

Oh yeah! But when you step up to something like a NAS or a Surveillance unit, the workload limit jumps to 180TB per year with units that can operate 24/7, a normal consumer drive can handle approximately 55TB per year when used 8 hours a day five days a week. So the lifespan of NAS and surveillance drives are about the same but surveillance drives are a bit cheaper and in a real world application you wouldn't really notice a big difference.

It is, yes! The IronWolf is proven good option due to its enterprise-like-endurance, they still can not handle 300TB a year like an enterprise NAS HDDs working 24/7 but due to the performance they have demonstrated anyone can easily choose IronWolf like their main drive for heavy workloads.
