WD Gold 10TB or Seagate BarraCuda Pro 10TB?

I'm looking for a new hard drive due to my 3TB one filling up too quick for my liking. I've narrowed it down to the WD Gold 10TB (due to the Black only having a 6TB option), and the Seagate BarraCuda Pro 10TB. Which one should I get?

If you assume all hard drives will fail at a moment's notice, and you have a solid backup plan, then it doesn't matter which one you get.

Personally I'm a die-hard seagate fan, have been for decades,

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

I'd just buy more 3-4TB drives because they have the highest GB per $ ratio, but just for these two (objectively) they are equally good. I did lose multiple Seagate drives in months though so I am more subjectively against Seagate.

I'm actually using Optane, so I'm limited to one drive here.

What are you using it for? Id probably get one of those easystore 10tb drives as there a great value at 180usd. 

Can only buy on Newegg currently, so no Easystores. I use it for gaming and general storage.

Why use optane? Just get a normal ssd and set up tiering in software. Much more flexable and you can mix and match hdds and ssds.

Id just get a ironwolf, its cheaper and basically the same speed.

I already have the Optane, and Ironwolf in general isn't as reliable as Barracuda Pros.

Where do you have reliability data?

 

You can use the optane drives with storage spaces tiering. Just get a few like 6 or 8tb drives. The optane drives are just nvme drives and can be used by any program for caching.

I ended up removing the Optane drive and going for two 6TB WD Blacks.
