Seagate completely rebranded their HDD lineup during 2016 where each of their specific function drives is reintroduced as one of the Guardian Series. BarraCuda drives for everyday computing, SkyHawk drives for surveillance systems and finally the IronWolf for network attached storage (NAS) systems.

Today what we have in our labs is the Seagate IronWolf 4TB NAS HDD. We have 2 units of them so that we could perform a real-world test in our Synology DS216j 2-bay NAS.
