Professinal Drive 12/11/2013
The high capacity of this drive makes it great for my Media files and any other file that may require long term storage without the need of SSDs.
Another example wold be documents or Development projects
I have a Previous generation 4TB WD Black Caviar and this has a higher speed than the previous generation of a noticeable amount.
The build of this device is obviously of high quality. There is some noticeable build improvements over the previous generation.
This is obviously a great feat which allows me to take control of the higher Speeds
Im not gonna give benchmarks or anything due to previous reviews but for the people who dont know what the numbers mean, here is a perspective. For documents and media, the buffer/load time is lower than that of a normal hard drive. (Moving HDD) This provides quicker opening of files.
This is about the only con there is. Multi platter provides an issue with data loss. the more platters there are, the more likely one of them will fail. There also needs to be multiple heads for all the platters so that gives more parts that might fail.
Overall, this is a great drive and I recommend it to anyone who needs large capacity.
