Rotational Vibration Safeguard (RVS)

One of the greatest hindrances to hard disk performance is vibration. Like a needle on a record, the disk drive’s head must try to follow narrow data tracks in order to read (or write) information. These problems are particularly acute in multi-drive systems, because drives tend to be installed alongside each other, in arrays. The vibration caused by the rotation and seek activities of nearby drives can affect the whole array, progressively disturbing the operation of each drive in the system. The drop in performance can be significant. That's why the Deskstar NAS hard drive has an advance Rotational Vibration Safeguard (RVS) that anticipates disturbances and counteracts them, maximizing performance in the most arduous conditions. If the RVS sensors feel a vibration rippling through the drive, they send a signal to the actuator that controls the head’s position. The actuator then compensates for the disturbance, counteracting it with an equal and opposite force. In this way, the head is able to 'ride' the vibration and stay on track, helping to prevent data loss or corruption.

Still kicking after 3 years of solid use 6/20/2018 12:51:06 PM

Pros: -No issues with any failures

Cons: -None

Overall Review: They've been running solid in my media server for 3 years pretty much 24/7 in JBOD not RAID. No failures and they stream nicely to my Roku over wireless. Even my Blu-ray rips play at decent rates so no speed issues.

FAIL-4 out of 4 drives dead in 18 months 10/15/2017 6:28:41 PM

Pros: Fast in a four-bay RAID 1+0 config--averaging about 300mb/s.

Cons: 100% failure rate in 18 months
Terrible customer service from HGST/Westerndigital
SMART software warns of drive failure and failing drive eventually hampers entire system until full failure.

Overall Review: I purchased 4 of these drives in May of 2016. The last one died today. I have sent three RMAs over the past 8 months, and now I get to submit a fourth. I have to pay insured shipping, each time and HGST customer service has been no help at all. Considering I will probably be purchasing hard-drives regularly for the foreseeable future (just bought 2 Seagates), I hope HGST/Western Digital will find an amenable solution or they will have lost customer for life.

Flawless 10/2/2017 5:55:39 PM

Pros: Great history of reliability
Nice performance

Cons: Little louder than some. No big deal

Overall Review: Highly recommended. I gradually replaced all my older 4TB drives in my Synology NAS. Now all its drives are this model. All four have been working like a charm. I've only used HGSTs for the past five years. I have at least 10-12 of them in various computers and NAS units, regular computers and my video server computer here at home.

Exceptional Value and Speed 7/7/2017 5:00:42 PM

Pros: I have loved the Read/Write Speeds on this Drive. Makes a really great Media Backup Drive. I currently run a Plex Media Server off of this drive with all of it's Media and haven't experienced any issues.

Cons: Read/Writes are Noisy compared to other HDD.
Runs about 7-8 degree's hotter than my other HDD.

Works Great and good Price - Very hot however 5/21/2017 8:53:25 AM

Pros: Fast and lots of space

Cons: Very hot
It gets so hot I can barely hold my hand to the outside surface.

Overall Review: If the temperature is normal I would recommend another because heat like the one I have cannot be good for the drive or the
data being stored. I have reached out to HGST to verify if there is an issue that needs addressing.

Still running after 2 years, but very loud! 4/18/2017 7:26:58 PM

Pros: I purchased 3 of these (12/2014) for a QNAP NAS and after 2 years I haven't had any failures.

Cons: They are very loud. My NAS sits idle most of the time, and there is a very annoying tick tick tick tadadadadada... over and over. I had to move the NAS into a different room from where I work. They never spin down.
