Yep, that's about right.
I bought the Seagate NAS about 8 years ago - it was on special offer (because it turned out the seller was in serious financial difficulties that closed him down a few months later): NAS box, and 4*4TB drives for 1/4 RRP all brand new. And when I upgraded to the faster QNAP box I migrated the HDDs to the new box.

But that's a lot of hours for an HDD, even running as cool as the NAS keeps them, and as low loading as my NAS's get. Hence the "replace all four" idea.

What I may do is stuff one of them in my desktop (replacing the DVD I never use) and use it as a "game disk". 4TB should be about big enough to hold GTA VI when it finally comes out ... Laugh | :laugh:
