      As more and more people find out the truth about "The Cloud" backup, and available slow speed internet connections I find myself finding ways to keep, store and backup my Data. Audio Files are BIG! I do not have an Internet carrier that provides me with Speed I need to back up and send audio files quickly. So I need to go to 4 TB Drives on my MAC Pro. I knew this was the drive for me. I already have 2. B&H is always a little cheaper. On this and everything else.

      I purchased these four drives for use in a Synology 1511+ NAS station. The NAS is used primarily for backup so speed wasn't terribly important. What I needed was cheap storage space. I was upgrading from a mix of 2-3TB drives.

      I got five drives and one out of the five drives was DOA. I sent it right back to B&H within the 30days and they got me a new one. Besides the dead drive things have been well. Generally my experience with Seagate is that they are hit or miss.

      The Seagate manufacturer warranty leaves much to be desired. It is generally only 12 months from date of purchase. I just had a one year old 3TB Seagate die. I spent some time on the phone and sending in proofs of purchase before Seagate agreeded to give me a 15 month warranty. They gave me an RMA for the dead drive and sent me a replacement. I still had to pay for shipping the drive back to Seagate.

      I would highly recommend getting the Square Trade protection plan for these drives!!!

          I purcahsed 4 of these drives and set them up in a NAS for storage. They do great for storage . So far I am very happy with the Drives. These are large drives they would not be great for running software or games from them.

                  • RAID

                  Comments about Seagate 4TB Barracuda 3.5" Internal Desktop Hard Drive:

                  Seagate drives have a pretty bad reputation and I would probably never trust my data to them individually, but I used them with RAID systems with no problem. That is to say, when one failed after 3 years of careful service (12 hours a day with drives spinning down when not in use) I was ready with another drive to replace it. I chose, however, not to get another Seagate as the even the small risk of a second drive in my RAID set up failing simultaneously, however remote, was too great a risk. They are the cheapest drives around, but they are probably the least reliable. On the other hand, some of the most reliable drives (like Hitachi) cost not that much more. To me the math looks like this: twice the reliability for a 10-15% boost in price. Easy call.

                          Not much to say other than it works great and holds an amazing amount of files. I use it with an external HDD bay hooked up to my laptop, and even though the bare drive is completely exposed and sitting about a foot away from me, I can hardly hear it. Whisper quiet. Time will tell how reliable it is, but so far, I couldn't be happier.

                            Just got the drive and installed it in an Other World Computing enclosure. It's fast enough and large enough for my use. Seagate has been getting some bad press as of late, even this drive, but I had no problems. I cannot say how reliable this drive is as it just go here and I am in the process of loading over 2 TB of large images.

                                Simply a reliable, dependent drive. We use them as archival drives for massive amounts of footage and projects, and purchase about 30-40 annually. Very dependable so far

                                Comments about Seagate 4TB Barracuda 3.5" Internal Desktop Hard Drive:

                                I purchased these four drives for use in a Synology 1511+ NAS station. The NAS is used primarily for backup so speed wasn't terribly important. What I needed was cheap storage space. I was upgrading from a mix of 2-3TB drives.

                                I got five drives and one out of the five drives was DOA. I sent it right back to B&H within the 30days and they got me a new one. Besides the dead drive things have been well. Generally my experience with Seagate is that they are hit or miss.

                                The Seagate manufacturer warranty leaves much to be desired. It is generally only 12 months from date of purchase. I just had a one year old 3TB Seagate die. I spent some time on the phone and sending in proofs of purchase before Seagate agreeded to give me a 15 month warranty. They gave me an RMA for the dead drive and sent me a replacement. I still had to pay for shipping the drive back to Seagate.

                                I would highly recommend getting the Square Trade protection plan for these drives!!!

                                  Ok, I use it on my Drobo 5D. I used to spend more money for WD 4tb, but as soon as I have found out this solution, it works so well, I bought other 2 pieces. Perfect.

                                        Surprisingly fast for a 5400rpm drive (performs like my 1.5TB 7200rpm unit). No compatibility issues. Formatted a single 4TB partition using GPT (Windows 7 64 bits).

                                            Finally Seagate is selling the bare drives. Bought 2 of these and they are running fast & quiet.
