Reviewing the IronWolf Pro 12TB ST12000NE0007 NAS Drive…

Earlier, we’ve talked about the IronWolf Pro series and test its IronWolf Pro 10TB drive. We’re reviewing the IronWolf Pro 12TB NAS HDD and see how this performs. It should be interesting to observe if this NAS HDD holds similar performance. To give a concise explanation, IronWolf Pro is made for commercial NAS operations. Naturally associated with the “Pro” word, it is recommended for NAS builds up to 16 bay drives, a higher mean time between failures, five years warranty period with rescue support for up to two years, vibration sensors and optimized HDDs for multi-user connections.

Since we already about its features and benefits of the IronWolf Pro earlier, we’ll simply go ahead with the testing.
