5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

This review is from: HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN (0S03664) 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Bare Drive

Pros: -Fast
-Inexpensive
-Quiet
-Reliable

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Bought these for a media server to replace some WD drives that I was having bad luck with. I have 3 of these in my system right now as well as 2 WD and the response from these drives is so much better. They run cooler and are just as quiet even though they are 7200 rpm drives. Would recommend

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb

This review is from: HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN (0S03664) 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Bare Drive

Pros: It works and was not DoA. 3 year warranty.

It was packaged in a retail box that included mounting screws (but no SATA cable or molex to SATA power adapter).

I threw this into my file server box running Windows Server 2008 R2 and according to CrystalMark it's at least as fast as the 2TB Seagates that are in there with it. So, I'm happy with the performance. I've had good luck with Hitachi drives in the past.

Cons: I couldn't afford two?

Other Thoughts: If you want a good, fast 4TB drive but don't feel like paying the premium for a WD Black or Enterprise-class drive, get this. It's one of the few reasonably priced 7200 RPM (4TB) drives out there.

Most others in this price range are 5400 or 5900 RPM and the jump to 7200 RPM is rather expensive.

Made in Thailand. Is this a good thing? Or horrible? Only time will tell...

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent so far

This review is from: HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN (0S03664) 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Bare Drive

Pros: Well packed, easy install. Bought two of these to replace a pair of drives in an existing NAS, one of the drives had started to report errors so I bit the bullet and replaced both. Both drives went in with no problem, replaced the failing drive first and waited 5 hours for the raid mirror to rebuild then replaced the good drive, once that was done I expanded the array to get the full benefit of the new drives.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Probably be getting a few more of these for a new server. very happy so far.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Decision I made

This review is from: HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN (0S03664) 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Bare Drive

Pros: Everything went perfectly, fast delivery, well packaged, sealed in grey bags for moisture and anti-static, worked right out of the box. They dont come with cables, but its ok, I bought Blue Diamond cables to use with them. I bought 3 of these for my company, to have data redundancy, I went with HGST for reliability, and I am very impressed with everything so far. Its the first time I buy HGST products, after 8 years of building computers. I went from Seagate to WD to HGST. You will need to set those using Windows Disk Management, and create GPT partitions to unlock the full 4TB, otherwise you will be stuck with 2.2 TB. The drives yield 3.66 TB of usable storage once the previous steps are done. I am looking forward to buying more of those soon.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggs"faster than other 5400 RPM Drives" ?

This review is from: HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN (0S03664) 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Bare Drive

Pros: Quiet
Doesn't get too hot
Major Pro: apparently only a single "load/unload cycle" per power up (unlike Seagate Barracuda which cycles every 5 minutes - have heard WD drives also cycle frequently)
Factory sealed anti-static bag (inside box)
Manufacture Date on drives' stickers was this month! (Good sign)
Rated for 24/7, 1 Million Hours MTBF

Cons: Slow for 7200 RPM drive - apparently this is why it's compared to "other 5400 RPM drives" (big sticker on the box) despite the fact that it's 7200
Continuous Speeds (not listed in specs):
162 MB/Sec at fastest sequential read/write
88 MB/Sec at slowest
Relatively flat performance arc from one end of the drive to the other (especially compared to Seagate, which ranges from 204 MB/Sec at one end to 96 MB/Sec at the other)
While doesn't get too hot, does get warm

Other Thoughts: Purchased 3 to replace current Raid 5 array (Seagate Barracuda 3TB drives) - all 3 good out of the box.
Lifespan rated at 600,000 "load/unload cycles" - twice as many as Seagate drives, and HGST doesn't keep cycling every 5 min!!! (No more annoying "ker-click, ker-click" even when nothing is going on.)

The drives are fairly heavy (good? bad? just is?) haven't hefted a 3 1/2" drive this heavy since the late 90's

5 out of 5 eggsThis is not the a Touro External HD & Warranty

This review is from: HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN (0S03664) 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Bare Drive

Pros: to John E. This is a 7200 RPM drive with a 5 star rating. The Turo is a 5400 rpm drive with a 3 star rating. Just because the capacity is the same doesn't mean the drive is the same.

Warranty is always by date of sale assuming you can prove that with a receipt. If you lose you receipt it will warranty reverts to date of manufacture

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsSolid drives

This review is from: HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN (0S03664) 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Bare Drive

Pros: Quiet, low power use, fairly low temp in a Synology 1813+

Cons: Price is still a tad high.

Other Thoughts: Loaded an Synology 1813+ with these, zero bad sectors, run cool and quiet. Ran a full integrity check upon install and another after 2 weeks of heavy use, not a single problem so far.

5 out of 5 eggs3 replacement drives OK

This review is from: HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN (0S03664) 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" High-Performance Hard Drive for Desktop NAS Systems Bare Drive

Pros: Around 50MB/s for network transfers, which is about as good as it gets on my network. Host to Mobius RAID transfers are between 80MB/s and 120MB/s, which is also good for this particular RAID box and about 20% faster than the WD Red in the same enclosure. Tested on RAID 0 only and will test again in RAID 5 after I move data and Low Level the new array. New array of five 4TB drives in RAID 5 totals 14.9TB.

Cons: None so far. Heat and noise are a bit higher then WD Red, but that is to be expected because of faster spindle speed.

Other Thoughts: 5 eggs this time because the replacements were all good and Newegg service was excellent, as always. The bad three drives I received initially came from batch with SN PCG88xxx manufactured July 2014. I'll probably end up ordering another Mobius box and 5 more 4TB drives, so I can upgrade the Synology NAS to 14.9TB.
