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.

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

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

      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.

      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.

              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.

                        Put 4 of these drives into a Drobo Gen. 3 unit (total of 16TB). The price for the 2 pack was the best I have seen anywhere at the time of purchase. The drives are very quite and do not run hot at all. So far so good and hope it stays that way!

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

                                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.
