Store and access up to 4TB of your files in a desktop computer, NAS device, or RAID array using the 4TB Desktop 3.5" Everyday Internal Hard Drive from WD. 4TB will allow you to store movies, photos, music, documents, and much more. Compatible with computers running Windows and Mac OS, this hard drive connects to your system's 3.5" bay via the SATA 6 GB/s interface.

In terms of speed, this drive operates using WD's IntelliPower rotational speed. This means that rpm speed of the drive depends on the operations being performed. If the drive is performing mostly sequential reads and writes, its speed will be increased as compared to if it were performing mostly random mode operations. This 4TB drive also features a 64MB cache to help ensure uninterrupted data transfers.

Included with this hard drive are mounting screws.

NoTouch Ramp Load Technology
The recording head never touches the disk media, ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well as better drive protection in transit
Low Power Consumption
Seeking algorithms and power management features help ensure low power consumption
Tested for Compatibility
This drive is tested on hundreds of systems on a variety of platforms ensuring enhanced system compatibility
Upgrading the Drive is Easy
Migrate your current system to your new WD drive using Acronis True Image WD Edition, available as a free download on the WD Support site. This software enables you to copy all your data to a new drive so you don't have to reinstall your operating system to get the benefits of a new drive

      If you're like me and require massive storage, but prefer to minimize use of NAS & RAID arrays, these 'green-label' WD drives are the answer. I own seven and have more on order. I use them in conjunction with the Highpoint Rocketstor thunderbolt HDD dock (available from B&H). I keep active Final Cut editing projects on a G-tech 8tb drive thunderbolt drive, backing them up to these WD 4tb "greenies." Back-ups scream along at thunderbolt speed, and at these prices multiple volumes for protection are very affordable.

      I purchased 2 drives which work fine. However one of the USB3 cables that came with the drives failed to work. It would connect to a USB2 port but when connected to a USB3 port the drive failed to work. Very disappointed in WD.

        Comments about WD 4TB Desktop 3.5" Everyday Internal Hard Drive:

        This is a fine product for what i use it for, serving files via network. I have three NAS devices, all using WD green HDDs. I adjust the "green" parktime from the standard 8 secs to a more reasonable 5 mins, using a freely available utility called wdidle3. Improves use-ability of green drives for NAS service. Do a quick search for park time and adjusting the wdidle wait to park. In fact, you should make this parktime adjustment if you intend to push this HDD into a RAID or NAS service. :)

                  I have 4 of these configured in a RAID 5. Going on a month and they are plugging away just as expected. The green series from WD definitely saves on power which is great in terms of heat and money.

                        good drives for lots of storage! I have not had any troubles with WD drives for a long time so these should be fine, I am hoping anyway. I do wish they had the sata cables tho, they came without any and I had to go buy some.if not for that I would have given 5 stars.

                          This is my fourth WD 4TB Green drive, which I use for backups and archiving. These drives are reliable at a good cost/TB. I have been using two of them striped together in a 8TB partition for a year without a single problem.

                          With drives like this it has become so inexpensive to keep multiple backups of even the largest image databases that data loss problems have become a thing of the past.

                                    Was looking for a Hitachi 4tb Drive. Found this WD for a good price. Never have gone wrong buying a WD drive till now, rarely crashes, easily recoverable drives. For those buying (my 2cents) buy Hitachi or WD. Stay away from Seagate.

                                    I have used Western Digital Green disk drives in my 2 drobo drives for years. I never had a fail and they are very stable. I can not speak to speed since I have not compared them to high speed disks such as the WD Black but for backup they are fast enough.
