What customers say about "Features"
Seagate BarraCuda Pro 4TB Internal Hard Drive Performance HDD
  • I bought this drive for my first pc build. I'm a hardcore user. I use the drive for music production and gaming.
  • These drives are very fast I get transfer rates of up 204 mb/s and steady at 190 mb/s when transferring 600GB libraries.
  • I prefer WD products, but I have to say, this thing is super fast and QUIET.
  • After about two months from building my PC, the drive made strange sounds. These strange sounds sound like ticks and winding.
  • The drive shorted out and melted the SATA cable and ruined the SATA port on my motherboard.
Western Digital Black 4TB Performance Internal Hard Drive
  • WD Black hard drives have a great reputation for long turn reliability.
  • No issues putting this drive in an existing system, faster operations than usb passport.
  • Drive was easy to install and is relatively fast considering 7200RPM.
  • It's been decades since I've heard a disk drive this loud. It sounds like a rat chewing through a wall every time the drive is accessed.
  • Great capacity but this thing is so loud, I even installed it with rubber washers and it is still the loudest drive I have ever owned.
