For most NAS uses these drives will be awful. Any write to a shingled section that isn't just appending data to what's already there involves a full 256MB read-modify-write cycle, and without an SMR-aware filesystem chances are that will be most of them. We're talking single-digit IOPS here.

Enterprise customers with custom-written object-store filesystems, sure. Your home server, not so much :/

Just rereading that article makes me agree with you 100% didn't even realize that it was such an issue... I just saw helium and 10TB.. but the way writes work on this is a nightmare for normal use.

Why not just JBOD 10 1tb Samsung 850 Pros together instead? It would be much faster, and likely cheaper even, considering they're targeting corporate audiences with this, and it's a shiny new tech.

everyone owns laptops/macbooks these days. bulky full-size desktop setups are fading into obscurity. no need for massive cases anymore unless you're a hardcore gamer, overclocker and/or data hoarder.

and for storage you could only use an external/NAS and just need an SSD drive in your system. runs cooler, quieter, and safer. (don't need to worry about physical bumps and drops for losing data as much.)

Well that I have a proper gaming rig kinda goes with being on bluesnews, no? I do have a tablet and for that I don't need a TB worth of storage. And tablet is superior to laptop. (imo)

And obviously for NAS a 10TB drive assembly would be absolutely fantastic. Not quite sold on "helium" in my HDD's though.
