29 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I purcahsed 4 of these drives and set them up in a NAS for storage. They do great for storage . So far I am very happy with the Drives. These are large drives they would not be great for running software or games from them.
  • Cons: Slow Connection, Slower Hard Drives

Load/Unload Count is excessive

Timothy W., Newegg
12 May 2014
  • Summary: Like many newer drives (especially Seagate and WD) this drive has an excessive APM configuration of 128. Anything below 250 is generally unacceptable, and most drives, like NAS/RAID drives, are set at 255 (which is disabled APM.
  • Pros: Most inexpensive 4TB drive.
  • Cons: Quiet* when not "parking/loading" heads, which it does every 60 seconds.

  • Summary: This massive drive had me mortified, worrying about the Y2K threshold and the frequency of the magnetosphere turning south. But I took a chance on it and I am sure glad I did! With proper formatting, you'll be a hard drive storage genius! And the only one on your block with good biceps.

Would buy again - learn how to format 4tb first

,, TigerDirect.com
29 April 2014
  • Summary: Great product. Wish there had been warning about the special formatting necessary for 4tb drives. Thank god for google to show me how to properly format this drive cause anything over 2tb needs to be formatted differently apparently.

So far so good.

  • Summary: Had this for a couple weeks now. I really should be using an SSD for the monster rig I'm running, but this lil puppy loads multiple OS's and has lots of room left for storage. A mechanical HDD is about as volatile as it gets, so it could fail any minute. That's how I treat my HDD's, like each time I boot them may be their last. Always back up people.
