Honest first impression - I didn't even know they made a 6TB drive, but for the cost of it I can buy 4-5x 4TB drives.

Once it goes consumer level the price drops but enterprise class stuff always comes with a price premium.

I don't even get why Seagate would have us review enterprise hardware. Lucky Amanda.

This is an odd ball enterprise drive though - most are SAS not SATA.

It'd go perfectly in a nice NAS...assuming you could afford 4 or 5 of them. :lol:

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

So expensive... but it's getting harder to fill up 4TB's as it is (my server has 8 1TB HDD's in RAID 10). I couldn't imagine having 8 6TB HDD's in RAID 10 for 24TB's space. I'd have to copy all my HD porn 6 times over.

It is a big drive! The enterprise quality makes it a bonus too -- but I would agree there are cheaper ways to do storage. It will make quite the nice backup to our server in case we ever have to book it outta here when Waco sets the house on fire!
