I am looking at buying a 4TB Drive today, this look like a good choice?

7200RPM and 128MB of Cache Costs $225

Or get the Retail 4TB drive from Newegg?

5900RPM and 64MB Cache $205 + $35 off code

I am planning on having this drive for a very long time, so I want a good one.

You should get a HGST Touro Desk Pro 4 TB (7200rpm) on Amazon for $215.28

Easily the most affordable 7200rpm 4TB on the market right now.

With that size and good partition, users can store backup, images and computer images as well.It almost makes useless having a NAS.

Would like MaxPC to review and score prior to purchase.

I got a 4 TB Hitachi drive from Fry's a year ago for about $180. It was the last one.

My questions is, do they play nice in RAID? If so, they will sell the shit out of them to HTPC enthusiasts and digital hoarders everywhere.

So, in '79, I could put one modern picture on my hard drive... Wow. Proress is amazing.

Seagate's first 4TB drive but not THE first 4TB drive. I know WD's 4TB drive isn't exactly 1TB per platter but theirs was the first 4TB drive on the market.

First 4TB drive with 1TB platters.

Considering I bought a 3TB external drive for $99, I'll just buy two of those, instead of one 4TB. Since they'll just be for mass storage, the speed doesn't matter too much. It's good to know progress is still being made.

Wonder if that's why all the 3tb drives from Seagate went on sale today... I'm gonna go with yes, lol

I think I could find some room in my HTPC for one of these guys!

I was buying 2TB drives "pre-flood" at $69 each. Its a shame prices never came back down.

The prices aren't where they were but it's hard to say that $190 for 4TB is a bad deal... Especially considering the performance.
