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.

3 out of 5 eggsNot sure of Reliability

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

Pros: I've been a fan of Seagate Drives for a long time, I've started out with their 320GB Drives and over the years went to the 750's then 1.5TB and the 3TB before going to the 4TB for my latest NAS. These drives are relatively inexpensive (when on sale) and are very fast.

Cons: I am not sure about their reliability, I bought 3 drives to start and one of them just failed after only about 9 Month (about 6400 Hours). What makes me a little more concerned is that when I tried to RMA The drive I got an e-mail saying there was going to be a delay as they don't have any in stock. Um What?

So be mindful of this since a lot of people are saying that these drives don't seem to last long. I am using a RAID 6 so hopefully I will never have 3 drives fail before I can get at least one of them replaced.

I am also very disappointed that Seagate lowered the warranty time from 5 years which was their standard for so many years to the 3 years it is now.

Other Thoughts: What else can you say, maybe I should have went with the WD Red Drives? Once I switch to the 8TB Drives I think that will be the direction I go as it seems like something has happened to the Seagate QC.

2 out of 5 eggsordered 6, 1 DOA

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

Pros: High capacity

Cons: 1 drive out of 6 was DOA

Other Thoughts: Hopefully this doesn't say anything about these drives. I'm glad I will be running them in RAID 6 so 2 drives can fail before I have a problem.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer beware

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

Pros: Half of the drives I ordered worked.
Newegg's return process is fairly easy.

Cons: Half of the drives I ordered worked. 50% DOA isn't satisfactory to me, and it doesn't appear to be isolated to just my purchase, judging by other reviews.

Other Thoughts: Ordered 2 of these. One works perfectly, the other doesn't even spin. Check the other reviews and decide if you feel lucky.
Just to be clear, Newegg immediately accepted the RMA, agreed to refund rather than replace the drive, and sent me a shipping label at no charge. I have no complaints with their service.
