Yup, it is a Helium drive.
Seagate's New 'Guardian Series' Portfolio Brings 10TB Helium HDDs to Consumers

How many times are we going to rehash the "hard drives from x manufacturer suck" thing?
At this point, every hard drive manufacturer has had a bad generation or two of hard drives. Seagate is just the one in more recent history. (and that was half a decade ago)

The old Deathstars are now some of the most reliable drives on the market, for example.

This is why backups are great, and why you shouldn't use the same model of hard drives in both your primary and secondary storage devices.

If you don't like Seagate, cool beans. Go buy something else, or use them and keep viable backups using equipment from a company you like more.
