Rincewind shrugged. “I don’t mind putting my hand up to killing a few spiders,” he said. “But it was me or them. I mean some of those come at you at head height—”
“You changed history.”
“Oh, come on, a few spiders don’t make that much difference, some of them were using their webs as trampolines, it was a case of ‘boing’ and next moment—”
And we all know where he was talking about!

I own a NAS that has a total capacity of 6TB. More than enough for my business needs.
Till today I've been using a 3TB HDD as backup and it worked perfectly... versions... all OK, but of course I'm running out of space.
Would you recommend the Seagate STEL6000200 HDD?
It's 6TB of capacity and the USB3.0 port seems what I need.
Seagate's got such a bad reputation is recent years decades I wouldn't take one even if given to me for free. And that's actually happened - I was given a system that had a set of mirrored Seagate drives - one was already dead, and the other failed within the following month.
All Seagate drives I've ever purchased are dead. I've retired functional drives from other companies because they just got too small, not because they stopped working.
IMO: If you're going to insist on Seagate as a backup drive, then back up in pairs, at least.
I can only offer my own anecdotes, and I realize other people have had no problem with them. To me, Seagate is like Sony: I won't (directly) tell others not to buy them if that's what they want, but I will relate my personal experience, and I don't have any praise with them. I didn't start with such prejudice either; I used to be a fan.
I'm always on the lookout for good deals on large hard drives. While I've seen better prices on Seagate drives than some of their competition (especially the cutting edge just-out-this-month models), I always move on as soon as I see the name.
