Categories > All Desktop Hard Drives > Seagate > Seagate ST4000VM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 no problems yet
Pros: We got two of these for use in two different DVR systems for our new security camera systems. So far they're both running at a great temperature while being written to nonstop by 4 streams at around 4000Kb/s.

While viewing and saving an external copy of 20 minutes of video footage, it kept recording all 4 channels at full quality.
Cons: So far, none
Other Thoughts: The maximum ambient temperature rating of these drives is very nice and makes placement of the DVRs very flexible.

Categories > All Desktop Hard Drives > Seagate > Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5" Desktop SSHD

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 A good Compromise
Pros: Boots slightly slower than SSD but cheaper and greater capacity.
Cons: There have been a few occasions when the drive activity has been at 100%. But, it has been while installing lots of software. Hopefully that will change when its in normal use and there is a better balance between reads and writes.

Categories > All Desktop Hard Drives > Western Digital > Western Digital WD Green WD20EARS 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 IF YOUR DRIVE STILL WORKS SET PARK TO TIME TO 300seconds
Pros: Alot of storage when drive came out, got almost all my data off it before a partition disappeared and drive became unusable (minutes of inactivity) from retrying to read what couldn't be read.
Cons: Failed just after warranty
Apparently heads park every 9 seconds of inactivity
(60,300 park/load for 6,500 hours of use)
542 reallocated sectors out of 2TB should be usable but I'm assuming the heads aren't working properly because dysfunction has exponentially grown.
Other Thoughts: Never bumped during use, low temperatures with airflow, the drive damaged itself.
Forums filled with similar info.
I set drive aside for a couple years, started tinkering with it again (SpinRite,, MHDD, DOS6 format /u , HD Tune 0 fill.... tinkering)
I figured i'd write this to warn others.
IF YOUR DRIVE STILL WORKS SET PARK TO TIME TO 300seconds AND COPY YOUR DATA OFF OF IT!!!

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Fool me twice shame on me!
Pros: None
Cons: Died after less than 4 years. In comparison, my 1TB WD Black caviar is still going strong after 6 years.
Other Thoughts: The only reason I bought this was because of the positive reviews and because it was $20 cheaper than a WD Black caviar at that time. Never buying another Samsung hard drive ever again.
