5Great Price/performance ratio make this a great buy. For me consistently faster than FireCuda.
By fraamus
I ended up purchasing this drive after I received a defective and then poor performing replacement Firecuda 2TB. I was prepared to be disappointed after replacing my Caviar Black. I have to say while it is about 20 Mbps slower than the Caviar it is still very fast and very quiet, especially compared to the noisy WD drive. The 4K perfomance is pretty dismal, but in real world use I just don't see much difference. I am a gamer and use my PC as a small office server. So it is very fast with a Samsung EVO 850 primary drive, OCed 3570K, GTX 1060, Crucial Ballistex memory etc. The Caviar is clearly the best mechanical drive out there but at twice the price per MB I'm not sure it is worth the price. I guess the proof will be in the durablity and the drive does get warm with long and large data transfers.

5Great hard drive for security systems!
By Silvio
I have installed these hard drives to upgrade security system DVRs from the standard 1TB. With the 1TB hard drives, I was only able to record less than a month of motion events. With these 4TB hard drives, I am able to record about 3-4 months of activity. They are a worthwhile investment especially since hard drive prices have been going down a lot every year. Do yourself the favor, if you can afford it and your system allows it, buy the largest capacity hard drive that you can get, more is better than less.

5Great for backing up games, movies, pictures, etc
By Katie
I bought this hard drive as a back up to my SSD (which has my operating system installed on) and it is more than I could ever need. 2 TB storage I think is is perfect amount, and since it runs at 7200 rpms, its pretty fast for a mechanical hard drive. I store pictures I have saved up for years, my Steam games, 3D files that I create for my 3D printer, movies, my entire music library, and back ups of mine and other friends' computers. I plan on buying another one so I can mirror (Raid 1) the two drive together, so if one dies (for some unlikely reason), I will still have my second drive.
