This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: None at this time

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: This drive was DOA. Unfortunately, was not able to test or install it until the 30-day Newegg warranty period had expired. Seagate however did offer to replace the drive. Have not yet received replacement.

4 out of 5 eggsAffordable Backup Drive

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Value: I am hard pressed to find another 4T drive for the money with the Barracuda reputation.
Reliablility: This particular drive is new to me, but I own two much older 1T Barracudas that have survived RAID1 flawlessly for over 4 years. I am using two of these in the same configuration for my first backup solution for all my files.

Cons: Speed: I was somewhat disappointed to discover I had mistakenly purchased two 5700 rpm drives when the smaller drives in the class are all 7200. Building the RAID1 array in WIN8 took about 6-7 hours. But for the money, capacity, reliability, and intended use, level one backup, its a minor inconvenience for a nice price.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for an affordable backup solution, this drive is a solid choice. And despite the 5700rpm, I am scoring a steady 150MB/s transfer in RAID1. I even tried a little batch photo processing in LIghtroom straight off the array. The process was over in minutes.

5 out of 5 eggsSeagate 4 TB ST4000DM000

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Price - I bought this drive from an email special with an additional discount through a promo code....thanks Newegg

Reliability - This drive is almost in use 24/7 over the past 6 months that I've owned it and there has never been any issue with it at all.

Size - 4 TB is ample storage space for almost any need. I use it as one of a few drives dedicated to storage of my television episodes and movies.

Speed - Although it may not be the fastest drive out there, it handles my need quite well. It's used for playback of video on the pc it is installed into and streams the same content to other pcs in the house. Most of the TV shows are lower resolution, but many of the movies are 720p and 1080p and they playback on the installed pc and those that stream off it without any stutters. I also have a second one of these drives and it is in use for game installs. One might think that the 5900 rpm wouldn't be well suited for running games on, but I don't find it to be an issue at all. Sure some loading times would be reduced with a higher spin rate but I'm fine with it.

Sound - This may seem like an odd thing to list, but I've seen many drives that were plenty loud when disk usage was at high levels. I can say that is drive is rather quiet in that aspect. I never notice it over the sound of the fans in my pc and they are quite quiet themselves.

Cons: Over 6 months of near 24/7 usage and well over 2 TB of writes to the drive and not a single issue leaves me to say there are no apparent cons I could think of to list. Sure it would be nice if I had bought one with 7200 rpm, but even at 5900 rpm it runs just fine for me.

Other Thoughts: Some performance numbers from testing with HD Tune

3 out of 5 eggsIt works!

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 2nd one Works fine. It's 4tb. Quiet. Good price.

Cons: First one was DOA.

Other Thoughts: My first one was DOA. I RMA'd it, which was frustrating because of the delay, and I had to spend another $15 to ship it, which negated the savings on the drive. C'est la vie. The new one is working fine so far. I'm in the process of transferring everything to my new drive with no hiccups. It may not be super fast, but I'm only using it for file storage. What else could you be using 4TB for?

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: none

Cons: It was DOA. I'm in the process of RMA'ing it now. I understand that sometimes this happens, but it's really annoying. The whole reason I bought THIS drive was to save money, but now I have to spend more money to ship it back. I would have been better off just getting a more expensive drive that wasn't DOA.

Other Thoughts: I'll update my review after I get my new one, assuming it's any better.

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Happy with this product have had one for over a year and got a second about a month ago. Also have had two of the older 2 TB 5900 RPM drive. All have performed well for use as a Home NAS. The lower speed is fast enough for my needs and they seems to keep them quite and cool.

Cons: Still a bit expensive if you don't catch them on sale

5 out of 5 eggsGetting more.

This review is from: Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Price, dependable, quiet.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: Have two of them since about mid 2014, setup with mdadm (Linux software raid*) in Raid 1 right now. Plan on getting four more of them very soon for a raid 10** setup.

Retention is more important to me than space*** and I trust these drives***.

* Even though my MSI A88XM MB supports HW raid.
** https://www.synology.com/en-us/support/RAID_calculator
*** Yes I have offline backups. Just ALOT easier this way.
**** So far :) Gotta give em credit though. Best large drives I have used yet and I have used a lot.
