Buying enterprise drive for my desktop

Hello,

 

I want to buy this drive for storage on my desktop (everything except games which will be stored on a StoreMI drive). Seagate Exos 8TB

 

https://www.scan.co.uk/products/8tb-seagate-exos-st8000nm0055-35-enterprise-hdd-sata-iii-6gb-s-7200rpm-256mb-cache-512e-416ms-ncq-oe

 

I want this drive because its good value for money relative to other 8tb drives, 5 yr warranty, and high spec for readability.

 

My question is, does anyone else use enterprise drives in their desktop? Is this a terrible idea for some reason I am not aware of?

NOPE! sometimes they are slower favoring reliability over speed but besides that go right ahead!

I live in misery USA. my timezone is central daylight time which is either UTC -5 or -4 because the government hates everyone.

Personally, I always go for enterprise drives - they are FAR more reliable and durable than consumer models. Hence why I recommend WD Red and RE models.
