5 out of 5 eggsWorks great in my RAID

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: I purchased five of these to put in to a RAID 5 that I was building. All of them worked perfectly so I bought another to use as a hot spare. All six have been running for around six months with no drive problems.

SEE "Other thoughts"

Cons: Not ultra fast, but fine for what I wanted.

Other Thoughts: I see a lot of reviews where people are using NAS or RAID drives as their only drive. The manufacturers tell you not to do it, but people do it anyway. That is one source of problems.

This drive is designed to NOT be a desktop drive, it is a RAID drive and MUST be used in a RAID to be reliable. Don't just buy the cheaper model, buy the one that is made for your application EITHER RAID or desktop. A NAS is essentially a RAID so this applies to both usages .

Also, a lot of reviews of hard drives in general have talked about DOA drives. I have complained to Newegg about their packaging of drives. Others have also complained about it. We think that the poor packaging is a factor in the bad drives.

Very recently, the drives I have been receiving are packed very well. It seems that Newegg has listened. Thank you, I hope that continues. I also hope that it solves the problem of a high percentage of hard drives that are DOA or go bad quickly.

These are now on special again so I am going to order a couple more of these to increase the size of my RAID again. I would recommend them to my clients because my experience with them has been good.

1 out of 5 eggsABSOLUTE JUNK / FAIL RATE / DO NOT TRUST

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Size vs cost ratio is good, but the fail rate of these drives makes this a terrible purchase. Do not trust these drives with your data.

Cons: Bought 7 drives (6 for RAID array, plus spare). FOUR of the 7 reported errors (on two different RAID cards, in two different servers) immediately out of the package. NEWEGG would not refund my money on these JUNK drives because I wrote our asset tag information on the drive before installing them (who knew proper inventory control would hose me?)

Other Thoughts: Untrustworthy. Do not be tempted by low prices.

Pros: - Reliable HD

5 out of 5 eggsGood Cost/GB - May Get DOA

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Great drives (5 drives in RAID 5) so far.
Up-time 24/7 for 5 months now with moderate usage and they perform well.

Cons: Out of 5 drives I got 2 that were Dead On Arrival.

Other Thoughts: Newegg quickly replaced the DOA drives and the 5 drives have been working great in RAID 5 setup.

1 out of 5 eggsHigh failure rate

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Great performance and capacity for the price

Cons: Bought one drive and it had been working great for months. So I took the plunge and ordered six more. Of those six, one died after less than six hours of use (clicking, no longer detected by Windows), then a second died within 24 hours of use. Reading the reviews it seems others have had similar experiences. I'm concerned about the long-term safety of my data on these drives. Seagate needs to ramp up their quality control.

Other Thoughts: I'll still buy these, because on paper they fit my needs exactly. But they need to do something about the reliability.

5 out of 5 eggsGood drive

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Have three of these in my unraid server, have had two of them for a year. Solid performers, no problems so far (knock on wood). Like WD, I have had no issues with Seagate's customer service when I needed it. These drives seem reliable if you don't get the occasional lemon. I am slowly replacing standard desktop 4TB and 3TB disks in my array with these drives, as they go on sale.

Cons: I am hoping the prices come down more soon. With 6TB+ drives available now, I'd love to see a 4TB for under $120 as a matter of routine.

Other Thoughts: Newegg finally got shipping right, all recent hard drives I purchased came in a fancy bubble box, inside a cardboard box. Interestingly, when I ordered a cable in the morning a few days ago, and this drive about six hours later, the drive arrived two days later, and the cable FOUR days later. Yet they shipped from the same place. I'm confused.

5 out of 5 eggsGreate HDD for home NAS

This review is from: Seagate NAS HDD ST4000VN000 4TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Quite, cold, good performance for NAS

Cons: no yet

Other Thoughts: I bought 4 HDDs (2 here, 2 from other store). Connected all 4 to Intel RAID 5. After reading negative reviews I decided to check them before using. I run Seagate Tools long test two times (each test runs several hours), then long read test also several hours. No issues reported. Then I created RAID 5 and start coping files to and from RAID to another drive. I disconnected one HDD to simulate the problem. Intel reported it, but coping speed stays almost the same. When I reconnected the drive, Intel started rebuilding RAID. All this time I continued coping 1TB of small files. So I am pleased with drives. They are not the fastest, but this is not their job. I hope they will stay well next 5 years.
