All the HGST Helium drives are quite  good. The 6TB and 8TB are the most
reliable, with the 10TB and 12TB being just barely less reliable
(measurablely less, but only just). All of these models much better than
the non helium drives (I think the 4TB is not Helium, but still quite
good). They are almost in the same class as SSDs for reliability, at least
in well regulated environments.
