Seagate “Archive” HDDs are not meant for running programs, just backups and storage. Seagate External HDDs usually have Archive drives in them at the 8TB level.
WD MyBook usually contains “Red” NAS drives in them and are good, if you want the best price on a drive meant for an enclosure, buy the WD MyBook externals and shuck them.
Note: Shucking external drives voids the warranty! I don’t personally care, I don’t use drive warranties, but be aware of this. If you do care, then buy the internal drives, but they do cost more.
If you want the best performance at the best price today on an internal drive, buy this @Amazon – That is a Seagate IronWolf 7,200 RPM “normal” HDD for $259 at the time I posted this video. It is, however, $80 more expensive than the 8TB Seagate Externals with the Archive drive in them.
