Works Great but is not 4TB

Brad, Walmart

  • 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".

Just got the HDD and it works

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: First of all Id like to say for people saying its DOA, make sure you format the drives. They're bare drives and need formated. Also, I didn't pay attention to this fact when I bought it so you also need to know you need your own SATA cables.
  • Pros: -Inexpensive -Reliable -Tons of space -Good speed, there's ofc faster drives but this is well enough for gaming -Shipped rather fast to me, and excellent packaging for free.
  • Cons: -No SATA cables (its a bare drive, just be aware) -Need to format it (so you can't just plug it in and expect it to work) -Not actually 4TB, its 3.6TB (thats 400 gb of space you lose thanks to false advertising, should be illegal but all hard drives lie and round up :/) (The 2tb ones have 1.8TB too)

Keeping my fingers crossed

T H., Newegg
9 July 2015
  • Pros: Good price per gig, heavy drive with a solid case.
  • Cons: 1st drive was DOA to the point of BSODing a Win8 machine after a 10 min boot hang. RMA'd for a replacement drive and so far it's healthy.

Nice Workhorse

Kasey R., Newegg

  • Pros: Great price for the capacity. Seagate's always been a trusted brand.
  • Cons: Takes a little bit to spin up when accessing as my secondary drive, which can be annoying, but something I can defiantly live with.

A Rash of Uninformed Reviews on Here

Anonymous, Newegg
15 June 2015
  • Pros: Have had one of these running as a backup. Fairly quiet. Slower than a few bigger HGST drives I have, But Faster than an old 7200 rpm WD Black I have. I would say it's a decent all around drive. Works in Win7 just fine.
  • Cons: None to speak of. I don't use it as a very active drive. I set a bunch of stuff to send to it, then go to bed. That has never failed, so...

Great Backup Drive

JAFO, B&H Photo

  • Pros: Easy To Install, Quiet
  • Cons: Slow
