Currently running:
Samsung 840 PRO with 44,521 hours.
Samsung 850 EVO with 29,493 hours.

My computer rarely gets turned off, so that's just about the age of the drives.

nnnnnnnecro!

No point in making an identical thread. Decided to check my oldest drive for shits and giggles.

On the Dell Optiplex 990 SFF:

73158 hrs: WD Blue 640GB (SATA)
34537 hrs: WD My Passport 3TB (USB)
23794 hrs: WD My Passport 3TB (USB)
35033 hrs: Hitachi Touro 1TB (USB)

Have 2 x WD My Passport 4TB (USB) that are also connected, but the version of smartmontools I have doesn't have the drive in it's database. The are newer than the 3TB drives, so will have less hours.

My two oldest drives are 1TB Hitachi. Bought them already used with many hours on the clock. Spinrited them few times over and over and all bad sectors have been identified and spared out. For last two years or so there hasn't been a new bad sector.
I use these drives in RAID1 configuration. Normally a consumer would throw them out, but thanks to Spinrite, RAID1 and frequent monitoring I guess there's still plenty of life in these two :)

Device Model: Hitachi HDS721010CLA332
Temperature_Celsius 30
Power_On_Hours 22472
Reallocated_Sector_Ct 1655

Device Model: Hitachi HDE721010SLA330
Temperature_Celsius 32
Power_On_Hours 72219
Reallocated_Sector_Ct 563


72k hours that's 8.25 years online.

This is my oldest drive:
Hitachi HDT721010SLA360
Power on time: 1956 days 22 hours
Start/Stop count: 5189
Used as my trash drive, primarily for downloading stuff onto like drivers and software updates, etc.

But another has the most power on time:
WDC WD30EZRX-00AZ6B0
Power on time: 2030 days 19 hours
Start/Stop count: 744

Yes it is a notoriously unreliable WD Green, I've had these in raid, and none failed. They are retired and only used as offline backup now, so the Hitachi will overtake it within a few months.

I have 3 of them and they all still work and are in use. I bought the F4 drives since they were highly regarded as great drives at the time. I never had any issues with them.
This is all 3 of them,

I had 4 of them (2TB) until about a year ago. Replaced them with 8TB WDs, they had close to 75K hours on them, no issues at all. Even managed to sell them.

I can't quite remember but I might have bought this drive with a A64 3000+ build, so physically the drive might be 16/17 years?

I have an older 20GB Drive that was being used until maybe around a 1 (2?) years ago when the machine it was in was still running Linux. If I have time I might connect it and see what it reads.

Haha, thats nuts.
Easily the longest uptime posted so far.
And great operating temp for an old drive, mine always got hotter over time as the silicon aged and perhaps the bearing oil degraded.

LimitedAccess didnt apply to that drive :)

Drive Model: WDC WD1600AAJS-22PSA0 (was used as my boot drive in an athlon x2 6400+ and phenom II x4 940 up until 3 months ago when i built my ryzen system and finally bought an SSD)

[09] Power-On Hours/Cycle Count: 1/Always OK, Worst: 1 (81584 hours / 9.31 years)


Drive Model: Seagate ST3500630AS (not bad for a 40 dollar hard drive from fry's back in 2007 but it's my last surviving one of 6.. 2 of the 6 died after 1 year and the remaining 3 died about 3 years ago)

[09] Power-On Hours/Cycle Count: 26/Always OK, Worst: 26 (65497 hours / 7.48 years)

both drives are still connected to this system, i want to see if i can hit 10 years of power on hours with both of them before they die or if i retire them.


updating..

WD160 power on hours: 101,726 hours / 11.6 years

seagate ST3500 power on hours 83,118 / 9.49 years

one thing i find odd though is my 850 evo has 1000 more power on hours than my boot drive SSD but it's a year older than the 850 evo..

Love seeing the 100k+ poh. :) Especially since the drives were pretty run of the mill at the time. (y)

Wow.

100k is a bit more than mine, but mine are no spring chickens.

The 16 drives in my remote backup server are as follows:

These are all 4TB WD Red's.

There were originally 12, but I expanded the pool about 7 months ago. Makes me wonder if the 4 newer drives are those WD SMR drives based on recent news stories...

The other shorter hour ones were warranty replacements.

My 10TB Seagate Enterprise drives in my local server in my basement are a lot younger

Code:

And funnily enough, despite their bad reputation historically, my Seagate drives have been much more reliable than the WD RED drives were at this age. Have not lost any of them yet!

74,216 hours and counting. 4 drives all with the same hour count in a ZFS RAIDZ1. It's what I call my "nice to have" data, backup of the backup.
