Whenever a couple of drives bought at the same time (and therefore usually the same batch) broke down you could expect the rest to break within a short period of time.


I heard that too. Despite that, when I buy drives for myself here at home, I buy them in sets of 3 for my NAS (one live, one offline backup, one off-site backup). I can't say I've ever had any such issue (multiple drives failing at roughly the same time). I've been doing this starting with 2TB drives, 3, 4, 6, 8 and now 10TB drives.

That being said, this does mean there's only one of them running 24/7, and the other two are only being used for the duration of a backup update (one once a week, the other once a month, then they get rotated). So they get used very differently.
