Seagate IronWolf 110 240GB NAS SSD Review

Pricing and Final Thoughts

It is a given that a purpose-built drive like this won’t be as cheap as a desktop drive, but it might cost less than you think. At the time of this review, the prices are £88.82 for the 240GB I’ve tested today. Other capacities can be yours for £254.69 (960GB) and £908.07 (3.8TB).

At this time, it isn’t listed on the US version of Amazon yet. But when it arrives there, you can find it under this link.

Final Thoughts

Since the first day I heard about the IronWolf SSDs, I was in love with the idea. We’ve started to enter the era where a basic Gigabit Ethernet connection is a thing of the past in many locations. That presents NAS devices with a new issue, HDDs which can’t keep up with the available bandwidth. Whether you want to use the Seagate IronWolf 110 SSDs as caching for high-capacity HDDs or run an all flash setup, it’ll work great.

The 240GB model I’ve tested today is the lowest capacity and it’s the one of the series with the lowest performance. That should be taken into consideration when you look at the series as a whole. That said, the drive delivered a great read performance and a write performance that’s above HDD level too. So everything is good in that direction.

One of the IronWolf 110’s strength is endurance. Not only will it last for a very long time as it comes with a very high endurance rating, but it’s also backed by a 5-year warranty and comes with a 2-year data rescue service plan included.

Should I Purchase One?

If you’re looking for that extra performance from your network-attached storage and have the available drive bays to install them, then yes. You’ll notice a huge improvement, not only in transfer speeds but also in access times.

We’ll have NAS and RAID results ready for you shortly in another article. So stay tuned for more IronWolf goodness.
