Yeah 2400 hours is bad. Equal to 100 days. Not suitable for media servers.

Hard drive prices are BS. This price is from 2018 but the specs are worse.

The only reason not to use it in an NAS is if you're doing a lot of write/erase cycles because it's an SMR drive. Write/erase cycles will take longer. If you write them once they're perfectly fine. The read speed is nearly identical to the WD red of the same size.

Seagate hasn't been any worse reliability wise statistically than WD since that bad batch of 3TBs a few years ago.

Why is it so hard to find a solid deal on high-capacity drives? Ones that can be used every day, too!

What does that mean exactly? That the drive will fail after 100 days? I just bought this drive to replace and 8tb external that I dropped and I plan on using it for music and videos.

I doubt it will hurt anything, I have like 4 of these that never get shut off, the oldest two are 2 years old, my wife watches shows off one of them before bed almost every day. No issues with them at all.

From what looking I've done this drive is almost better left always powered on. Not sure about the 55tb per year rate since I write them once then use them for playback.

It won't fail in 100 days unless it's defective from the get go.

It means that yes the mean time between failure is 100 days. Sure you might get lucky and have it last a bit longer, but it's not rated for that type of environment so your probability of it dying is high
I can't find anything even suggesting 2400hrs. The official white paper just says 55tb of write cycles per year.
