5 out of 5 eggsGood drive, bad reviewers

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It works as it's supposed to, seems nearly as fast as my 7200RPM drives.

Cons: Newegg's policy of letting foolish reviews get posted...

Like giving a BARE DRIVE a ONE EGG rating because it came in a SEALED antistatic bag and not a RETAIL BOX.... "HUR HURR REFURBISHED! DRIVE SUCKS!!"

or people who give it a ONE EGG rating because they dun goofed up and initialized a 4TB drive as MBR instead of GPT then rant "I bought a 4TB drive, not a 2.2TB drive.... DRIVE SUCKS! NEEDS ZERO STARS RATING!!"

or people who give it a ONE EGG rating because "It's only 3.63TB not 4TB... GUBMENT STEALIN MUH TBs!... DRIVE SUCKS ONE STAR!!!"

Other Thoughts: proof of technical competency should be required before being allowed to post reviews.. or at least anything lower than a 3-egg rating should be screened for user errors... it's a shame that perfectly good products have their ratings skewed by incompetent users

1 out of 5 eggs3 out of 5 were DOA. Be aware of this product.

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: NONE

Cons: The quality were not consistent at all. I ordered 8 before and had no problem, but this time. 5 out of 3 were DOA.

Other Thoughts: Not very good support from Customer servers. The customer servers promise to send replacement out to us with next day shipping and we will receive it by Monday, but they did not bother to send it out at all. Be aware of ordering this product.

5 out of 5 eggsI really want to buy two 4 terabyte drives for a decent price. One year warranties are pathetic. Any advice guys?

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: What happened to 5 year warranties on hard drives? I would feel safe with even three years. One year? That is ridiculous. Why even bother having a warranty period? I had old SCSI Cheetahs and Barracudas that were incredible drives. I am not trying to pick on Seagate because it seems like all manufacturers are racing to the bottom of the barrel as far as standing behind their products. Do I need to step up to enterprise class drives for a decent warranty?

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsCannot find support for Beyond 2tb

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: It's probably a good hard drive

Cons: Cannot read anything over 2tb in windows 10. There is plenty of support for windows Vista and windows 7. It says in the description that it's an easy transfer to beyond 2tb. Not So! Maybe if you're using the new Uefi Bios. Most of us are not. Seagate has no support number or forums that i can find. I cannot find anything on google either that deals with windows 10 or how to get this drive to read over 2tb. Not happy with Seagate. This is a first

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Christopher,

There may be a variety of computer or operating system limitations when using drives larger than 2.2TB. Make sure the drive is set up with a GPT partition. The following support article outlines these limitations and provides some suggestions for resolving them:

5 out of 5 eggsNo issues, big drives for price

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I ordered to expand storage capacity. Was hesitant to have mechanical hard drives shipped, but I thought I'd give it a shot. I chose "In-Post" as the delivery option. By 4am the night of my order, the drives were already delivered. I picked them up the following day and noted - the seller did a fantastic job packing the drives in special bubble wrap containers, then in an individual box each, then more bubble wrap, and a larger exterior box. Absolutely no damage to the box (not even a mark) by the shipper. Very impressed with the shipping job.

Anyway, about the drives. I ran several iterations of Badblocks stress testing, followed by extended (long) SMARTCTL tests. No bad sectors noted on either drive (all tests done on a headless linux box running Ubuntu Server).

The read/write speed at the beginning of the test is around 150-160 mb/sec. I suppose as the drive head moves toward the centre of the platter and relative rotational velocity is reduced, the speed slows to around 90 mb/sec. Not bad for 5900 RPM drives.

I should note - you will want to keep light air circulation on these on such long duration read-write cycles. Without a fan, you WILL hit 40C+ in a 24C room, but temps will stay under 30C with some light cooling.

Also - drives are quiet.

No issues so far (fingers crossed, plus backups of everything)

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsGetting more.

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Price, dependable, quiet.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: Have two of them since January 2014, setup with mdadm (Linux software raid*) in Raid 1 right now. Plan on getting four more of them very soon for a raid 10** setup.

Retention is more important to me than space*** and I trust these drives***.
UPDATE: Have 4 of them in Raid10 with no issues... They even survived a move from Hawaii to Oklahoma!

* Even though my MSI A88XM MB supports HW raid.
** https://www.synology.com/en-us/support/RAID_calculator
*** Yes I have offline backups. Just ALOT easier this way.
**** So far :) Gotta give em credit though. Best large drives I have used yet and I have used a lot.

5 out of 5 eggsAble to install ALL of my digital download games with this!

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Lots of space. Very quiet. Keep all of my digital games installed on this drive with lots of room to spare.

Cons: This was my first drive over 2TB, I learned quick that partitioning and formatting is a bit different for a single 4TB partition. Not a real con but I had a real quick educational moment.

Other Thoughts: My hard drive AND wallet are ready for a certain game store's summer sale. ;)

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after just 8 hours.

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Cheap price, a lot of storage.

Cons: Fails within a few hours just as I expected.

Other Thoughts: Immediately after installing the drive I began copying pictures and home videos to the new drive. About 7 hours into the copy the drive failed with over 10,000 bad sectors (according to S.M.A.R.T diagnostics) and a non-responsive computer. This is my first Seagate drive. I've never purchased a Seagate because I've heard it year after year that Seagate makes garbage and yet I went against my better judgement merely because the price was so good that I couldn't resist. Never again. This was first and the last Seagate drive I will ever buy. The RMA number has already been issued and a refund-- not a replacement-- is on its way.

2 out of 5 eggsDrive fails shortly after warranty ends

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD ST4000DM000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Works well and then fails without notice or SMART errors.

Cons: The drive failed shortly after warranty ended. System and network on conditioned line, UPS and network protection. I have other model Seagate drives that last much longer. It is disappointing. This drive failed without notice or SMART errors. Be careful.
