There will be a report coming next week. I'll compare it against the WD40EFRX.

It looks like Seagate has them beat in performance for a lower price.

That's true, but Seagate's drive is 7,200RPM on non-helium filled. The WD costs more because of the helium fill, which gives you better power efficiency.

does that explain how it uses more power than the ironwolf 10tb? that's a 7200rpm drive and consumes even less power
