Summary: Got 2 of these to put inside my 8 Bay HDD PROBOX soo far no probs , they run good not too hot , not too much noise 4TB is a nice storage enought for all your need :) fast enought to ready 1080P MKV without slow down
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.
Summary: The drive works as expected, and is fairly quiet and quite cool. In addition, it does not have the aggressive head parking behaviour that it's direct competitor the WD 4TB Green has. The only drawback is this is a 5900 rpm so it is slower than the older 7200.x lines that Seagate seems to be using this to replace.
Summary: The price is a little to high. I've bought 4 for clients already and have a spare myself, the drive performs like the NEW Seagate drives which are silent but a bit crunchier than the older models made only a year ago. The Capacity makes this an exceptional band for the buck!, imagine buying 2 x 2 tb ON SALE for $99, already your saving $20-30! And Seagate support and performance has been exceptional for me and my clients for now 28+ years.
