5 out of 5 eggsgood so far

Pros: 6 out of 6 drives passed a full 3-pass write/verify certification of all sectors with 0 errors. (Compare to the WD Reds I've used, where about 1 in 3 fail.)

Performance is good; basically in line with a 7200RPM 4TB drive. In other words, a nice bump up from the 5400 or 5900 RPM NAS drives from other manufacturers, but not hugely so.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: For the absolute least expensive NAS storage, go with WD Red, test thoroughly, and be prepared to deal with the delays and shipping expense of warranty replacements. Or spend ~50% more and get these drives knowing they'll probably all work. It's actually an interesting trade-off, because no matter what drive I buy, I'm going to test them all regardless. Anyway, my opinion is that these drives are reasonably priced for a high quality drive, and that I won't pay for more expensive brands.

I suspect that the higher initial reliability of the HGST drives is an indicator of quality that will also result in fewer failures in operation and longer average service life. But I won't actually know that for a few years, at which point the knowledge will be worthless...

5 out of 5 eggsSeems Good So Far

Pros: No SMART errors, arrived well packed, quiet, fast (for a mechanical hard drive), appears to have good build quality, made in Thailand not China, enterprise grade, high MTBF, Hitachi Deskstar and Ultrastar drives have very low failure rates that tend to be around 1% according to the Backblaze data center study on 27,000 mechanical hard drives of various brands

Cons: very expensive (but you get what you pay for I suppose)

Other Thoughts: I've had very poor luck with consumer level mechanical hard drives from other brands, so I thought I would step up to something enterprise grade from Hitachi and see if I can actually get a hard drive that lasts. I guess we'll see...

5 out of 5 eggsReliable - Problem Free

Pros: Had the drives about 6 months - running in a G-Tech 2 drive Thunderbolt as Raid 0 on MB-PRO 17. Getting 273MB write, 263MB read.

Cons: a bit noisy, clicks as its used

Other Thoughts: no problems with heat or any errors.

3 out of 5 eggsPoor support and will not cross ship replacment.

Pros: Great when it works.

Cons: I’m now getting a SMART error after about a year. When you go to the Hitachi and enter your serial number it tells you that it is not valid. It turns out that they want the last 8 characters and not the complete number given by the SMART info. Why? Just silly and problematic. Support says of course as that is not what is on the label. So they want everyone to take their computers apart just to check the warranty? They could just have the database take the last 8 characters and or put a note about it on the page where you enter in the serial number.

Then the support guy won’t tell me what the SMART error is about saying I must run the WinDFT long scan. He said it would only take a few hours. No it takes like 9-10 on a 4TB drive. Also said that SMART errors don’t mean anything is wrong and that Windows Updates or improper formatting can cause SMART errors. What?

He also so informed me that Hitachi will not cross ship the replacement drive. What?! This is a hard drive not some random piece of equipment. I’ve only had to do this a few times over the years but I have never been told by any manufacture that they will not cross ship. So you are lucky enough to find out the drive is falling before you lose everything while it’s under “Warranty” but you have to find and buy at whatever cost, another 4TB drive to back everything up and then be stuck with another 4TB drive in the end. Really? That’s not much of a warranty and they are really overburdening the customer, just because they don't want to deal with my credit card info. This should be listed somewhere in all product info and the drive should be like $100 with such a poor warranty you will need to buy two.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: large, fast enough. very useful for large files/projects.

Cons: Runs hot. I have few hitachi hdd fail because of overheat, but there's no other brand 4TB yet, so I have to buy another one hitachi 4TB just for simple back-up.

Other Thoughts: hope this drive really will work this time. for $520 it will be a big loss not to mention loss of data.
