The 4TB Constellation ES.3 Enterprise 3.5" SATA Internal Hard Drive (OEM) from Seagate delivers the scalability that data centers need to reliably meet their demanding growth of unstructured data and a performance which makes it ideal for use in desktop computers, all-in-one PCs, creating PC-based gaming systems, implementing a desktop RAID, outfitting direct attached external storage devices and building network attached storage devices. It features a SATA 6 Gb/s interface, 7200 rpm rotational speed and a 128MB cache.

Highest-capacity enterprise drive
The Constellation ES.3 comes with a 3.5" (8.89cm) form factor, and is the perfect foundation for building maximum density server and storage solutions. These capacity-optimized hard drives support up to 152TB of storage per square foot to provide a great return-on-investment for your enterprise storage
24×7 bulk data storage
Building high-capacity RAID storage solutions requires predictable and consistent performance. The Constellation ES.3 ensures that your data is stored reliably in multi-drive chassis solutions.
Boost your storage capacities and conserve power
Storing massive amounts of unstructured data is easy and smart with this hard drive. Designed with best-in-class energy efficiency, it uses a minimum power and cooling envelope to store up to 152TB per square foot.
Maximize your data footprint
The hard drive comes in a 3.5" (8.89cm) form factor. Build cost-effective maximum capacity storage solutions with enterprise-class, 7200 rpm drives in capacities of up to 4TB. Select from sixth-generation SAS or SATA interfaces for easy integration.
Drive reliability that you can trust
The Constellation ES.3 provides enhanced error correction, super-parity and end-to-end SAS-based data integrity for accurate data storage each and every time. With a robust 7200 rpm performance, ramp load technology and a humidity sensor for optimum performance, it is the perfect solution for maximizing your enterprise system availability.
24×7 energy-efficient data access
With an operating power of less than 10.68W on average, the hard drive is an energy-efficient alternative in comparison to other 3.5 inch form factor drives in the industry. Additionally, the hard drive further reduces power with enhanced PowerChoice technology. Purpose-built for enterprise environments, the PowerChoice feature enables the T10-compliant power management standard, allowing organizations to tailor systems for optimal energy usage, resulting in up to 90% more power savings.

    Seagate ST4000NM0033 reviews

    4TB Constellation ES.3 Enterprise 3.5" SATA Internal Hard Drive (OEM) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Storage I used these in my Drobos and they run constant for years.
    Date published: 2014-06-16
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm pretty impressed so far I bought 3 of these to use in a RAID 1 (mirror)--one is internal and I rotate the other 2 in and out of a hot-swap bay as a backup. I chose these over consumer-grade drives due to the increased warranty period. I use the RAID both for long-term storage and to supplement an SSD boot drive, so I also didn't want the high latency that seems inherent to a lot of drives that are designed for NAS or backup. Packaging: The shipping box from B&H contained 3 individual boxes, apparently Seagate's packaging, plus some air bags. Within those individual boxes, each drive was in a plastic clamshell that was then surrounded by bubble wrap. Unfortunately, large sections of the bubble wrap were ruptured by the edges of the clamshells. Fortunately, the flexible ridges around the clamshells and the double-boxing seem to have adequately protected the drives. All 3 passed a long test using Seagate's SeaTools application with no errors. (Apparently SeaTools will provide specific failure information that can be used to initiate an RMA.) None of them make any unusual sounds that can sometimes be indicative of shipping trauma. Noise: When idle (and spinning) these drives are as quiet as any 7200 RPM drives I've had. When seeking, I think they're a little quieter than the 1.5 GB Hitachi drives that I previously used in the hot-swap bay. Even with 2 of them seeking at the same time, and with the hot-swap bay offering little sound insulation, I hear just a low grumbling sound from a few feet away. Speed: Subjectively I haven't noticed a big difference between these and the 7200 RPM consumer-grade drives they replaced, but they seem quite snappy as far as mechanical drives go. I didn't think to do a speed test of an individual drive, but for what it's worth the CrystalDiskMark results (with default settings) for the Intel RAID 1 are as follows: Sequential Read (Q= 32,T= 1) : 149.196 MB/s Sequential Write (Q= 32,T= 1) : 145.538 MB/s Random Read 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 1.867 MB/s 455.8 IOPS Random Write 4KiB (Q= 32,T= 1) : 1.291 MB/s 315.2 IOPS Sequential Read (T= 1) : 123.525 MB/s Sequential Write (T= 1) : 143.888 MB/s Random Read 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 1.039 MB/s 253.7 IOPS Random Write 4KiB (Q= 1,T= 1) : 1.232 MB/s 300.8 IOPS Reliability is an unknown at this point, but the 5-year warranty definitely offers peace of mind. (Of course, a solid backup strategy is imperative regardless of any one drive's warranty.) Firmware update: I updated the firmware on all 3 before putting them into service. According to Seagate's documentation, the firmware download package was supposed to include an ISO for creating a disk, but it did not. It did contain an executable for creating a bootable USB drive containing the update utility and firmware files, but the firmware files were missing from the USB drive it created. It wasn't hard to copy the firmware files to the appropriate location on the drive, but still annoying. I'm not lowering my rating since if you're updating HDD firmware you can figure out how to circumvent the problems with the update package. All-in-all I'm happy that I paid the premium for these over cheaper alternatives. (Note that I've used Western Digital almost exclusively for about 15 years, so I'm in no way predisposed to give these preferential treatment. I'm also one of the IT guys at the small company I work for, if that means anything.)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time will tell We use these Seagate drives for commercial NVR's and DVR's that run 24/7/365. So far the drives are stable and very fast. Time will tell.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quick storage drive 3 months in the drive performs and the price is right. Used as my secondary drive in a custom PC build. Never had problems with Seagate drives. Very happy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I wanted I ordered two of these drives. They got delivered on time. I installed them and they passed my performance tests that made sure the drives worked at spec.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable for archival and storage I use these for project backup and archival. They work great in an external deck or installed into a computer tower.
