HGST IDK 7200 overview

  • 1Description

The 4TB HUS724040ALE640 UltraStar 7K4000 HDD from HGST is a hard drive designed to work in some of the most demanding environments. Utilize this drive in conjunction with a variety of other drives in cloud storage, massive scale out configurations, data warehousing and mining, RAID arrays and more. The 4TB storage capacity is sufficient for storing a variety of files including videos, photos, documents and more. Access data quickly and efficiently through the integrated SATA 6Gb/s interface supporting data transfer rates up to 600 MB/s along with a 64 MB data buffer ensuring a fast, efficient data flow.

Increasing Capacity Density by One Third
Lower operating costs without expanding floor space by reducing W/GB. To meet these demands, Ultrastar 7K4000 delivers 33% more capacity in the same footprint at 24% lower W/GB than its predecessor, Ultrastar 7K3000. Take advantage of 2.4PB in the footprint of a standard 19-inch enterprise storage rack by stacking ten 4U, 60-bay enclosures. Ultrastar 7K4000 dual port SAS is available in traditional 512, 520 and 528 byte sector size. Ultrastar 7K4000 SATA is an Advanced Format drive, using 4096-byte sector size to provide enhanced capacity. Advanced format drives are backwards compatible with legacy 512-byte sector size by offering built-in 512-byte emulation through the SATA interface.
Combining 7200RPM Performance and Granular Power Control
Operating at 7200RPM, Ultrastar 7K4000 offers better overall performance than slower RPM capacity-oriented drives, and does so with lower power-consumption rates. The Ultrastar 7K4000 can help data centers achieve lower AC power and HVAC requirements. With five Advanced Power Management modes, the 7K4000 achieves a 59% reduction in watts during lower RPM idle mode, and uses less than 2W during standby/sleep modes, freeing up headroom.
Innovating for a More Sustainable Environment
The Ultrastar 7k4000, with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation, qualifies for the HGST EcoTrac classification.
Enhanced Capacity
This 4TB HDD is a high capacity enterprise class drive available in a single platform.
With a 7200RPM rotational speed you benefit from increased performance for business critical applications along with the ability to maintain drive performance in high rotational vibration environments and multi-drive systems.
Thermal Fly-height Control (TFC) with internal thermal sensors provides improved soft error rate detection for improved reliability and performance. The head load/unload feature protects disks during non-operation.
Optional Bulk Data Encryption (SATA) and TCG Enterprise_A (SAS) encrypts drive data, providing security and easy redeployment.

    HGST IDK 7200 reviews

    4TB HUS724040ALE640 UltraStar 7K4000 HDD is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from OK So Far The priamy motivation for buying this product is the advertized reliability. This is impossible to prove few weeks after installation. I can only say it did not fail yet. Two small complains: the product description never mentione if SATA cable is included. B&H does say that on the list of recommended accessories, but the manufacturer should include this information on its product description. This is a retail packaging and most other brands do include SATA cable with retail package, so this is somewhat confusing. Note that my installation needed 90 degree cable that was NOT the first choice in B&H recommended accessories. It showed straight cable that could not fit into my case. Hitachi recommends to download software for driver installation. In fact, the software did not install anything on Win 7. It immediately recognized that Win 7 does not need additional driver. Few wasted minutes to download software and research why Hitachi recommends it if everywhere else it clearly states that Win 7 already has the correct driver.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big and Fast I have a rapidly growing collection of uncompressed audio/video files in MKV format. File size is generally over 30 GB. Transfers are fast and capacity is high. This drive is just what I need in my external enclosure. Warranty is great

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Drive - No Problems Just got this drive a few weeks ago for long-term backup/storage. I can't attest to it's reliability, but it is suppose to be one of the best. It is, however, very fast (for a mechanical hard drive), it's quiet and I'm very pleased!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Drive for Serious RAID Storage I have 8 of these Drives built raid5 in my highpoint Thunderbolt2 na762 storage, it performed flawlessly so far! Great drive for raid storage.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Reliable Operations and backups for video production. I have two and they are fast and quiet. Hard use for one month so far with no problems!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't compromise! Hitachi also sells a popular and cheaper drive, but for archival video (my use) this is the one you want. Designed for enterprise class servers and with an actual MTBF rating, it's worth every penny. I think I now own about a dozen of this class of Hitachi drives, from 1TB up to now 4TB.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from UltraStar 7k4000 is a Winner This is seventh external drive I have purchased that is manufactured by Hitachi. The previous model the DeskStar was my standard. Now that the UltraStar has replaced it I will continue to buy as I am totally happy with their performance. Will continue to buy this product in the future.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Hard Drives I purchased five of these drives for a Drobo 5D. They have performed flawlessly.
