5 out of 5 eggsgreat product, super quiet, plug-n-play

This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 4TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC4.0U3

Pros: quietest external HD i've ever used.....have been a loyal user of western digital, but after looking over recent reviews, i'm starting to question the product quality, especially with higher capacity drives

Cons: i missed out on the $139 price last month

Other Thoughts: primary use is for storage of all my video, music and documents.....don't run any programs or OS off of it, strictly backup

5 out of 5 eggsIt is a hard drive

This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 4TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC4.0U3

Pros: Was the cheapest 4TB drive available when I bought it. Shipping was free and fast - two days. I 'deshell' external drives to use in hot-swap bays, making one GPT partition on the drive - it comes to 3.63 TB formatted. The drive is actually a WD Green - model WD40EZRX

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: As to why the drive sells for much more without the shell, I have no idea. That is just the way it is. Easy to fix just using a flat head screwdriver though.

5 out of 5 eggsBuffalo 4TB Drive

This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 4TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC4.0U3

Pros: I bought 2 of them, one as primary storage and one as backup. I used SeaTools to test both drives and both drives passed. I normally get Seagate drives but these were on sale so I decided to try them out and have no complaints about it so far.

Cons: Not really a con, but like most 4TB drives it only comes with 3.63TB of useable space.

5 out of 5 eggsit works

This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 4TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC4.0U3

Pros: Plugged it into the USB connector, and it was recognized immediately (Windows 7 64 bit). The large size allows me to backup my home NAS and put this in a safe deposit box, getting an off-site backup for much less than 2 months of cloud storage (it's *expensive* to have 3TB+ of data in the cloud).

Cons: SMART status information is unavailable, but that is an attribute of it being a USB drive vs SCSI or SATA.

Other Thoughts: For $139, you can't find a better deal right now.

4 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

This review is from: BUFFALO DriveStation 4TB USB 3.0 External Desktop Hard Drive HD-LC4.0U3

Pros: More than enough storage for what I need (well, for now anyway). Love the Eco Manager function built in, powers the drive down when not in use. Love the sleek black look, fits in nice with my media player, which is what it is attached to now, for video storage and playback.

Cons: Well the first one was DOA. Unpacked it, connected it, and nothing. Used Buffalo's formatting tools and would not recognize the drive. Tried this on multiple computers, same thing. Even when through disk management, it knew there was a drive there, but couldn't do anything with it (couldn't format, delete, nothing). RMA'd it, sent it back. Thought I was getting a deal with it's promo code at the time, only to spend that sending it back. Received the replacement and everything worked like it should.

Other Thoughts: Wanted to take off more eggs for having to pay to send back a defective device, but that wasn't Buffalo's fault.
