Pros:

-> Large Size
-> Hitachi Brand
-> mostly good reviews...

Cons:

-> Direct experience on High death rate
-> This will be my 3rd drive in less than 9 months!!
-> Last replacement lasted barely 6 months!
-> People are not exaggerating about these drives.
-> I have purchased Hitachi drives for 15+ years and I have NEVER NEVER had a drive with this sort of reliability issue. The drive works for a while, then refuses to spin up. This 2nd drive is now presenting the SAME symptom as the first time it was replaced.
-> Googling around show this to be a common and widespread issue.
-> In my case, this drive is barely being used, just a few files here and there and it's staying cool and not overheating... so I'm not sure what the problem is. I have another 2TB Hitachi right beside this one and it's been running like a champ for several years with no so much as a whimper...
-> If Hitachi ships me another bum drive that fails again before it should, then this will be my last 4 TB Hitachi drive and possibly last Hitachi drive ever.
-> With all the problems being reported, Hitachi should offer its customers an option of refund or or ship a newer model or something which works.

Other Thoughts:

-> Anyone considering this drive, should think twice if they value their data, their time, costs and the hassles with shipping these back to Hitachi for replacement again and again.
