Failed

Drew C., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Pros: Worked great for 2 years
  • Cons: Drive failed 2 months after warranty period. Lost all my my data that wasn't backed up. This is the first drive failure I've ever had and a 2 year lifespan is not long enough for me to consider this a quality product

Just to correct Brad's review

Walmart
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: Every hard drive is like this because of how space is reported. You DO have a 4 terabyte drive. But it reports in tebibytes. So, that 4TB drive will be reported as 3.63TiB. The actual capacity is 4,000,650,883,072 bytes. That is 4TBs, which is reported in a different unit. Terabytes vs tebibytes.

For backups and data storage, it is AWESOME! This is NOT A PERFORMANCE DRIVE!

genia w., Newegg
6 January 2016
  • Pros: Large capacity, great price, very stable and good transfer rates. Perfect for what it is designed as.
  • Cons: If you read the description, it tells you its cons. It is a 5900 rpm drive. Do not use this as your primary OS drive and expect it to be fast. It is my fileserver drive and it works great in that capacity.

Great ZFS drive

Adam K., Newegg
1 January 2016
  • Summary: Recommended.
  • Pros: Great drive for low utilization NAS environments (eg; Home ZFS setup). I initially bought 24 of these 18 months ago for a large ZFS Zpools, and have had no issues in the last 18 months of having them. I decided to pick up another 24 this year (2015) during black friday for a second Zpool. Got the...
  • Cons: - There are higher performing drives that may be better suited if you are doing virtualization etc, but for a backup NAS or scratch drive environment, these pack a lot of capacity.

Works Great but is not 4TB

Walmart
31 December 2015
  • Summary: Just my frustration in advertising these days. I looked all over the product information to find out if this is a true 4TB drive and could not find anything to the contrary. Even the label on the front of the drive says "4TB".
