Does anyone have any personal experience or opinions on these Seagate Exos drives? I am planning on purchasing a few X12's. Reviews I have found are all over the place. Thanks for any help.

Any recommendations for 12TB or higher (Non NAS)?

I was looking at the WD Ultrastar drives, any particular model you're fond of?
