Any here with experience with Seagate Archive 8TB 5900RPM SATA disks?
I have a huge movie collection with 1.500 DVDs and over 270 BluRays and it grows every month, when I buy or borrow movies to put into my system.
I'm now using 5 x 3 TB disks and 1 x 2 TB disk for this. And i have now under 1 TB with free space, so I have to upgrade at least one disk. I can double the 2 TB if I buy a 4 TB or triple it if I buy a 6 TB. So thats fine for now.
But then I saw the Seagate Archive 8TB 5900RPM SATA disks thats pretty cheap per GB.
It's for "cold storage" so the write/read speed is not very high. But when I look at a BluRay in full quality (35-45 GB) it's only 4-6 MB/s and the disk handles around 20-30(40-50) MB/s. (on the data sheet is actually says 150 MB/s write, 190 MB/s read so thats is much higher speeds then I need for this type of disks)
The disks I have today is single disks, no RAID, just I that use the system, so only one movie is watch at the time.
What do you think? Is it a waste of money buying a couple of this disks to store some of my movie collection on?
