Good high-capacity disk

Summary: This is a very good high-capacity disk for those who need tons of storage. I am using this in my NAS (4x4TB). I have had HGST/Hitachi disks in the NAS for more than 6 years (1TB, 2TB, 3TB and now 4TB) and have never seen a disk fail. Will keep buying HGST.
Summary: Bought four of them to make a 12TB software raid. They work perfectly. They are as fast as WD Black/RE4 drives I used before in a software RAID setup, and are significantly cheaper. If none of them die, I would use these drives for all my servers.
Summary: I just received the item today and checked the warranty on the HGST website. Sure enough, the manufacturer is telling me to return the drive to the point of sale. Last time I checked, this wasn't ebay... this is Amazon.
