Excerpt: I bought this 4TB Barracuda to upgrade the storage on my DROBO. The Seagate Barracuda 3.5" hard drives have proven to be robust and reliable for my working files. As I pull the smaller units out of the DROBO, they then serve as my safety backups (I typically have 1TB of images per year to store). For this purpose (use in DROBO) the HD is "plug-n-play" easy.
Pros: Dependable, Easy To Install, Highly Compatible, Reliable
Summary: Unfortunately the RPMs are not listed in the product description. I did not know this was a 5900 RPM drive until I checked on the order and it was listed there. Prior to that I had assumed that it was a 7200 RPM drive. Just ordered it. Haven't even received it yet and I'll have to send it back. Otherwise I'm sure it is probably a good drive. I have many Seagate drives.
Excerpt: I purchased this product as part of a home backup solution, to work with a Mac Mini backup server and a RocketStore RS5212 Thunderbolt drive bay. I've used Seagate drives professionally for years. They have a good warrantee and I've never had problems returning/exchanging them if they fail. I bought these for capacity more than speed, although they seem quite zippy in the RocketStore.
Excerpt: I've got about 6 of these 4 TB Hard Drives, as well as other 2 or 3 TBs. I don't have any complaints about them. I have had some for at least 2 years--that's a good sign. Seagate has improved their technology, and quality control--based on my experience. Seagate was awful about 3 years ago, but they turned it around, and the price is right. So I keep purchasing their drives. I recommend them.
