Engineered for the highest quality, the Ultrastar 7K4000 is put through grueling design tests during development and must pass stringent ongoing reliability testing during manufacturing. Ultrastar 7K4000 delivers by reducing downtime, eliminating service calls and minimizing TCO.
Poor 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.

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.
