3 out of 5 eggsTwo out of three is bad.

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 got as lot of space for the price -- when you get it on sale.

Cons: In the last two years I've bought three of these. One, the oldest, is still going strong. The other two were DOA, and had to be RMA'd. RMAing stuff is a PITA.

Other Thoughts: Perhaps Seagate turned out a bad batch of drives and I got unlucky, but given my experience, I won't be buying another one of these.

5 out of 5 eggsToo many ignorant user reviews

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

Pros: Cheap. Great for RAID1 or small, 4 drive NAS.

Cons: Two year warranty tells you right away that this is NOT the kind of drive to use for critical data.

Other Thoughts: So many ignorant user reviews on this site. Like the several people who say things like "Failed 2 months after the warranty expired and I lost all my data." Wait - you bought a drive KNOWING that it only had a 2 year warranty, and you expected it to last longer than that - and you didn't have a backup? Sounds to me like the drive deserved 5 stars and the user deserved 1 star.

ALL drives eventually fail. Although it is disappointing to sometimes receive DOA drives, or drives that fail after a short period of time, ALL manufacturers occasionally ship a bad batch of drives. This is why you should ALWAYS buy at least TWO drives and set them up as RAID1. I mean, come on now, these 4TB drives often go on sale for 125 bucks or less, and you're too cheap to buy an extra drive to protect your data? And then you complain that the drive failed and you didn't have a backup? Jeez!

I have two home file servers to store all my movies, TV shows and music. Both of them have 8 drives in RAID6 (which means any TWO drives can fail and my data is still intact). But RAID arrays are for FAULT TOLERANCE, and fault tolerance does NOT equal BACKUP. This is why I have the 2nd file server. Everything on the 1st server is backed up to the 2nd server, which once saved me from a catastrophic data loss. My 1st server once had a drive fail, and I replaced it with a spare, but failed to notice that I had accidentally disconnected a 1-to-4 Molex to SATA splitter cable. This means that when I powered on the array in preparation for the data rebuild, the controller card thought I suddenly had 3 more dead hard drives. I shut the machine down and discovered the loose cable and plugged it in again, but when I rebooted the computer, the files were permanently scrambled. If I hadn't already had everything backed up to the 2nd file server I would have lost my entire audio/video collection.

Now ask me how many copies I have of CRITICAL DATA - like family pictures and tax documents, etc. FIVE! In this day of cheap storage and ever increasing dependence on computer technology, I not only back up critical data to my 2nd file server, I also make additional copies to a) an external USB 3.0 drive, b) a 256GB SD CARD, c) DROPBOX (i.e. data stored on the "cloud", and d) an optical disk - yes, I still use a CD/DVD burner because it's so quick and easy (and ULTRA-cheap) to make additional backups.

Personally, I have no sympathy for all the people who lose data because they didn't have a backup. Come on guys! We're well into the 2nd decade of the 21st Century. It's time to get smart and prepare in advance for the inevitable day when your hard drive fails. Even enterprise drives with 5 year warranties can arrive DOA or fail after just a few months. Multiple backups are CHEAP INSURANCE!

1 out of 5 eggsFailed

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

Pros: Worked great for 2 years

Cons: Drive failed 2 months after warranty period. Lost all my my data that wasn't backed up. This is the first drive failure I've ever had and a 2 year lifespan is not long enough for me to consider this a quality product

5 out of 5 eggsFor backups and data storage, it is AWESOME! This is NOT A PERFORMANCE DRIVE!

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

Pros: Large capacity, great price, very stable and good transfer rates. Perfect for what it is designed as.

Cons: If you read the description, it tells you its cons. It is a 5900 rpm drive. Do not use this as your primary OS drive and expect it to be fast. It is my fileserver drive and it works great in that capacity.

Other Thoughts: Same as Drew, one drive made horrible noises and was just bad, wouldn't show in device manager.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat ZFS drive

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

Pros: Great drive for low utilization NAS environments (eg; Home ZFS setup). I initially bought 24 of these 18 months ago for a large ZFS Zpools, and have had no issues in the last 18 months of having them. I decided to pick up another 24 this year (2015) during black friday for a second Zpool.
Got the most recent batch of these for $124 ($CAD) during a black friday sale. Cant beat that price per GB.
5900 RPM is fine when you have 24 drives to absorb sequential IO workloads.
I average 1.6GB/s during scrub and can max a 10Gbit pipe to the array, no problem.

Cons: - There are higher performing drives that may be better suited if you are doing virtualization etc, but for a backup NAS or scratch drive environment, these pack a lot of capacity.

Other Thoughts: Recommended.

1 out of 5 eggsShort Term Failure Bad Service

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

Pros: Good Product lousy service! Not Segate but it is there problem because of there retailer.

Cons: CS Team: Thank you for contacting the Newegg Customer Service Chat Team.
CS Team CS Team: Your reference number for this chat session is 1070691
CS Team CS Team: We will be with you in a moment.
undefined CS Team: Estimated wait time is 3 hours 3 minutes 28 seconds

I have to switch vendors, my manager is extremely upset because I am now on overtime.

Other Thoughts: It is very obvious Newegg is in financial problems they cannot properly staff the customer service desk. I am going elsewhere because I am not sure of any warranty survival.
