Another rma'd 4TB wd red hard disk died. Sending it off via post for RMA. Last round it seems.

They really just last about a years usage before needing to RMA.

Slowly replacing with hitachi Deskstar now as my warranty for the second disk expires on 2nd Jan 2018 .

There's a sale at Lazada now from Storage studio for Hitachi deskstar 4 TB at 175 a disk if anyone wants


http://www.lazada.sg/hgst-deskstar-4...k-7954977.html


Strangely the disk 4 in the Nas is a 5 year old RMA Seagate 2 TB which is still working fine. The rest of the disks are 4 TB

Maybe I should consider putting it into the first two slots to see if it will die first.

Cause my rma always comes from the first two slots. Even from upgrading from DS414 to DS416 plus the hard disks always needing RMA comes from the first two slots.
Ok talk about Murphy's law. Now slot 4 Seagate 1.8Tb HDD has 169 bad sectors. Time to upgrade to all 4 slots 4 TB

But it's Seagate. No confidence

On top of that, 1 yr warranty
