[maximumpc] Seagate Now Shipping World's First 4TB Hard Drive with 1TB Platters - Page 5

post #41 of 74
WD is supposed to be releasing 4tb greens in Q2/Q3. I guess I don't see the need for a 7200rpm storage drive, when a 5200/5400 will do the same job silently and at half the power.

I was unaware of this when I bought mine. It works like a champ, but I don't expect it to last more than a yr or so. And I have had it for about three months already.

Never trust mechanical drive reliability these days. They all suck. So just go with the company that offers the best support in the event of a failure. In this case, that would not be Seagate.

Literally all companies do this. Any time you RMA any piece of hardware for any company, they will give you a refurb.

Pretty much all but 2 of my former Samsung drives still work, well regarded Spinpoint F1s and an F3 at that.

And what about the many bad quality WD drives? Every maker has their bad times, Seagate went through one, they're out of it now as evidenced by the DM001 drives.

I wish someone would follow the example of the Quantum Bigfoot and make a 5.25" HDD again, it'd be great for mass storage as the sequential speeds would be high even if latency isn't so great, could probably nearly have a 10TB HDD in that form too, or 7.5TB at least.

Now it's just a waiting game until Western Digital releases the same drive. Seagate technology, Western Digital reputation. Best of both world TBH... I'll buy 10 and put them in my NAS biggrin.gif

I may look into getting some of these. I have 4 1TB in a RAID5 array, plus about 10 other random scattered storage drives. It'd be fantastic if I could throw a bunch of these together, and get all my storage in one place.

I doubt my NAS (Intel SS4200E) supports 4TB, though. Blegh new NAS devices are so expensive.

oh look, even more data to lose.

If you're using >1TB for storage, RAID 1 or go home. I use RAID 0 w/ 2 WD 1TB blacks, and keep my docs and stuff backed up on an external; I can always re-DL my steam games.

Wish they'd bring back the Barracuda XT line, hopefully the 4TB Constellation will come out in a 64MB cache version.
