    Very nice and long review.
    I agree with HDD on Nas, and even on that sometime it is less expensive to get more stockage unit Nas filled with SSD than a less stockage unit Nas filled with big HDD.
    Also with Lan still at 1Gb in most install a HDD is enough
    On other hand i have still a Nas with 3 HDD 8To in raid with SSD cache for personal use and cloud... HDD phasing out but still not dead on big volume.

    Hi, thanks for the review.

    FYI typo on first line of 3rd paragraph (size of platters).

    MG series aren't expensive either. Even a bit cheaper with higher endurance rates. Toshiba is kind of saving HDD market right now, as WD adds 50% extra charge for their brand. And that's comparing to Hitachi, not to Toshiba.

    Like 10 TB Ultrastar He10 cost 22799 ₽ here. But exactly same drive with WD Gold sticker on it cost 32299 ₽.

    Toshiba MG06ACA10TE might be isn't helium, but still 17499 ₽ to WD Red Pro with 28799 ₽ price tag.

    Still no replacement for HDD technology if you want high capacity.
    Where i live you can barely get 4 Tb SSD for fair prices.
    A 14 Tb HDD will cost the same as a 4Tb SSD and you will have more models to choice from.
    If i want to replace my 3 Tb HDD NAS i still have no other option, then to go HDD or change the NAS out for a more expensive unit with more drivebays.
    Thanks for a still very relevant Harddrive review.

    Looks good. I just added another 8tb seagate to my plex server (Total 30TB), but i will consider this series when i need another upgrade. (Ripping 2160p hdr in full quality, takes a lot of space) To be honest price is my only considering factor. Most things can be either ripped again or downloaded if need be. Been lucky, in the 5+ years my plex server have throtteling along, i had no drive failures. (but i ususally double the drives every other year)
