5 out of 5 eggs Very Fast 4TB External USB 3.0 02/15/2013

This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus 4TB USB 3.0 3.5" Desktop Hard Drive STCA4000100 Black

Pros: Fast 4TB External USB 3.0. I voided my warranty right away and used this for an internal 4TB in my system. Cheapest price for a 4TB internal @ 189.00. Drive inside was a Segate Barracuda XT ST4000DX000. Benchmark @ 130mbs read 128mbs write as internal. Similar with USB 3.0 Awesome.

Cons: Be careful. Using it as an external the drive can get hot. I measured 56C with 1 hour copying over mkvs (movies). Plus I bought this same exact model a @ BB and it only had a Seagate Barracuda ST4000DM000. Which only benched 115mbs read 71mbs write. So luck of draw what model of hdd you will get in it.

Other Thoughts: USB 3.0 performance on this thing is as fast as using it as in internal drive. Heck I can't even find any internal 4tbs @ 189.00 atm. Plus with President day sale you can get this with 3 day shipping with $162.00. Not bad at all.

HyperX 3K 2.5

Pros: Very Fast SSD in ahci and raid 0. Raid 0 (two SSD) performance on Asus Crosshair V beat a pair of OCZ Vertex 4 on Read 90mbs or more. Very stable so far no BSOD's in Win8. Plus got these on sale for $69 a piece!

Cons: Raid 0 write peformance was not what i expected and did not work very well with my Asus Crosshair V. Was about 100mbs+ slower than OCZ vertex 4. However, this could be caused by my firmware. I noticed i was using one build less than the newest one. Plus, I couldnt get the firmware upgraded. Was a pain to find on the Kingston web site. I was in AHCI mode for the upgade, but it kept failing. I upgraded many SSD's firmware and never had this problem. Perhaps its an issue with Win8 compatiblity and the upgrade program. I'll try on win7 later.
