Seagate has sent the generation Momentus XT Drive with 750gig of storage space. Compared to its predecessor (1st Gen Momentus XT ST95005620AS drive), ST750LX003 Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB is with larger Flash NAND, SATA 6Gb/s interface- anything that one can expect from a successor. Does it succeed and even fair better than the other drives is something we’ll need to see as the review progresses?
Typical of the Ironwolf NAS drive series, the SEAGATE IRONWOLF 16TB ST16000VN001 HDD carries 3 years warranty with a spindle speed of 7,200 RPM. These are marketed for Home, SOHO and small business NAS drives, typically up to 8 bays. It comes with a plethora of NAS-specific functions. Its in-house Ironwolf Health Management (IHM) is a 1up from S.M.A.R.T. functions. This emphasis on Prevention, Intervention and Recovery. To use IHM, it needs to work with IHM-enabled NAS units. At the time of writing, it listed ASUSTOR, QNAP, OSAN, Synology, Terra Master and Thecus. There is no support for desktop systems, nor FreeNAS functions- yet.
