Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V4 6TB SAS 12Gb/s HDD Review @ NikKTech

Hard disk drive capacities have increased more (skyrocketed is more like it) in the past 5 years than in the 20 years prior and although we’ve yet to reach the point which I’ve been waiting for (drives exceeding 20TB in capacity) still we do have models with up to a massive 10TB of available space. Of course although not really a surprise such models are usually equipped with SAS connectivity and are primarily aimed towards business users and professionals who require both capacity and performance. Strangely enough however although the new 12Gb/s standard has been around for quite some time now we haven’t really seen many models take that step so most in the market still support the previous generation 6Gb/s standard. Today we will be putting through our usual tests one of the latest HDDs to hit the market by our friends over at Seagate, the Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V4 6TB SAS 16Gb/s (ST6000NM0034) model.
