Does any have or know anything about the Toshiba MG series of hard drives?
My current hard drives are getting near their expected old age, so I’ve been shopping for replacements in larger capacity so I can decrease the number of enclosures. I was mostly looking at Seagate Iron Wolf and Iron Wolf Pro in 12-16TB size, but stumbled on the Toshiba MG series at newegg. They seem to have better specs and a much lower price compared to Iron Wolf (16TB toshiba is $25 cheaper than a 12TB Iron Wolf). Probably slower, but that doesn’t concern me since I’ll still be using sata 6 enclosures. I care much more about reliability, and being able to afford the capacity I need.
I thought I’d start with one 16TB drive to serve as the daily clone backup drive, then if it works out gradually switch my other drives from 4TB to bigger. However, I can’t find much in the way of reviews. There was one at kitguru (which I’ve never heard of before) but it only covered performance.
Many thanks for any info.
