4TB Ironwolf has a new part number ST4000VN006 - the 2 platter drive and it will replace the ST4000VN008 part number soon.

Main difference is that ST4000VN006 has 2 disk platters, in contrast to 3 platters of ST4000VN008.  This means that the new part number is marginally ligher and energy efficient.  The new part number also has a better transfer rate (202 MB/s compared to 180 MB/s of earlier one)

in reply to craig – they should work together. Both are CMR drives, you benefit from the transfer rates of the new drive but they should work. Just ensure that the new part number is showing as compatible with your NAS model though first.

Will mixing these 2 different 4TB drives in a RAID5 volume cause any issues?
