Plusses and minuses of SMR drives The Backup Plus Hub series appears to consist of SMR (Shingled Magnetic Recording) drives. We know the 8 TB version is SMR because another reviewer (Pacific coast) opened it up (voiding his warranty) and found a Seagate Archive drive, which is SMR. I asked Seagate if the 6 TB version I got is an SMR drive, and they said “Unfortunately, we do not have this information available.” Ha ha! Their reticence is understandable, the more common PMR (Perpendicular Magnetic Recording) technology is generally preferred. The prices of these Backup Plus Hub drives are less than Seagate’s bare PMR drives of equal capacity, which also supports the idea that the Backup Plus Hub series is SMR.SMR technology allows more physical bits of memory in the same space without decreasing the size of the bits.Advantages of SMR– Fast burst sequential writes are possible due to higher density and allied technology.– Larger drive capacities in same-size…

In case if you are wondering what bare drive inside UPDATE-2: After Christopher K.’s feedback I conducted further tests to isolate that “cyclical head activity” situation.I first unplugged CAT6 cable to my NAS (Synology DiskStation DS213air). Wi-fi is already disabled. So NAS become absolutely stand-alone, away from all external interaction. When you unplug the ethernet cable, it goes thru a busy few minutes with disk activitiy. Then after it “calmed down”, I noticed that such semi-cyclical head activity is still going on. At that point the only possible intervention to drives can obviously be coming from NAS operating system (DSM 6.1.3-15152 Update 3) and/or these 3 “packages” running on that NAS OS:-Universal Search (can’t disable)-File Station (can’t disable)-Media Server (can uninstall)So in theory either NAS OS or one of these packages can be “polling” the drives cyclically. Otherwise, such cyclical activity must be coming from drive itself. I checked a bit more online…

Seagate Unit and Warranty POOR I know one can get a “lemon” sometimes, but how Seagate’s customer service dealt with the matter left me discouraged. Seagate states they provide a 2 year warranty, but let me share with you my experience in dealing with the dead drive covered by support/warranty … The product was purchased about 90 days ago, but was not used for several weeks; and thereafter, usage was light (for example, Time Machine backups for a couple laptops). Then after about 2 months of use it died last week. I attempted to locate another adapter to confirm that the adaptor was not the issue, but was unable to locate the unique one that comes with this unit (Seagate power supply: 12V 3A / barrel outside 5.5mm inside 2.5mm center positive). Therefore, I contacted customer service regarding the matter and they asked me to purchase one to test their drive. Yes, they wouldn’t send me a replacement adaptor to test their product, but rather wanted me to purchase one. So with that support interaction, I…
