I'm going to be in the market for a new set of NAS drives later this year, so I'll definitely be checking out the HGST offerings.

Shouldn't you stagger your purchase of NAS drives to reduce the risk of concurrent failures? Regarding the W.A.F. I find it a lot easier to justify a drive upgrade every now & then instead of dropping $500-800 on a whole set of drives. ;)

Here at work we've had more or less the same NAS setup for almost ten years. with periodical data transfer to external drives. All WD, without a single HD failure.

Heck, my computer had three WD drives, with the primary being from 2004, and by the time the CPU gave out in 2014, the same old drive was still going strong.
