Fast and Quiet

  • Excerpt: reviewing a hard drive is a bit tricky; there could be something going on right now I do not want or it could blow up just after submitting this review. also, the specs are known, so the factors I experience depend on my enviornment and machine etc and not likely helpful to the masses. so, I can tell you that bhp did a great job packing it and shipping promptly; the drive is 3.63 usable TB; it is quiet and it is fast.
  • Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Quiet

4TB, oh my!!

J Z, Amazon
14 May 2014
  • Summary: So far, so good. I've been transferring a lot of files from other drives to get them all in one place and the drive is barely half full. Seek times seem at least as good as my other (WD) drives. I have 7 HDD attached to my computer (2 in an external box) and have no problems with any of them. I've had very good luck with Western Digital, and this is my third "black" drive. Very satisfied.
