4 out of 5 eggsRecognized Out of the Box

This review is from: Seagate STBD4000400 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive – Retail Kit

Pros: win7 running on a fairly old i7 asus sabertooth 58 recognized the full 4tb without having to adjust anything special in windows (just use GTU(?) to format the partition. does the job.

Cons: not the fastest read/write speeds, but let's be honest, this is a value hdd.

Other Thoughts: it's new so cannot comment on longevity. purchased as part of a project to convert old gaming rig with a spacious case into home server. :-)

4 out of 5 eggsFast and cheap

This review is from: Seagate STBD4000400 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive – Retail Kit

Pros: Inexpensive
Fast, 135MB/s sustained xfer
Quiet spindle and seek*

Cons: *occasionally makes a loud scratching noise when unparking the heads.

2 year warranty is among the lowest out there.

Other Thoughts: My old Hitachi 3TB made this type of noise randomly while sweeping the platters, but the Seagate is even louder and it can be jarring in a quiet room.

In regards to support, WD Red has a 3 year warranty for the same price and is rated at 24/7 use. I regret not buying the Red even though it is about 10% slower. You can't put a price on data.

2 out of 5 eggsGo figure..

This review is from: Seagate STBD4000400 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive – Retail Kit

Pros: Fast read/write. I setup two of these in an external raid 0.

Cons: Don't configure these drives in a raid 0 if you value the data that you're storing on them. I made that mistake and now I'm paying for it. It's going to take 3 days to copy the 4TB of data that I have stored. I just hope the drive that is going bad lasts that long!

4 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected.

This review is from: Seagate STBD4000400 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive – Retail Kit

Pros: I bought 24 of these for my new 80TB file server. I did not expect all of them to work out of the box, but they all did. I am monitoring the disk failures with my Adaptec RAID card and so far only one out of twenty four drives had to be RMAed within the first two months of use. As opposed to some of the other drives I have tried all of these drives ran at the 6GBps!

Cons: One drive had 32 "medium" errors within the first two months of use. I sent it off to the Manufacturer with the promise they would send me back a new one. I have not gotten one back, but that is OK as I understand the process takes weeks.

Other Thoughts: I will continue checking these drives fairly often over the next two months as I hear that drives commonly fail in the first few months of use. ...Oh yeah, the price when up the day before I bought these hard drives, so that sucked. I could have save a couple of hundred dollars if I bought them he day before. -Oh well, still a good value I think.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, so good

This review is from: Seagate STBD4000400 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive – Retail Kit

Pros: No issues

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I ordered 3 of these and set them up in a RAID 5 (hardware) configuration. I've had no issues thus far. I did not run any diagnostics on the drives like some of the other reviewers... will report back if a drive fails in the near future.

4 out of 5 eggs1 Bad egg

This review is from: Seagate STBD4000400 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive – Retail Kit

Pros: Good price for the space

Cons: This is my 3rd drive and the first to have a problem. after i formatted it i noticed that it was 1.63TB instead of 4TB or some were near that. there is no unallocated space on that drive so i don't know what could be wrong.
