One thing Seagate seems to be trying to hide is the fact that the 4tb model's spindle speed is only 5900RPM, but don't think too much of this. For a NAS, it really doesn't matter one bit because the limiting factor for speed is normally your method of downloading data off the NAS (AKA, an ethernet 10/100/1000 port only goes up to 120MB/s). For a regular raid, it will impact performance a bit.
Read/write benchmarks from HDTune Pro:
Read: Min: 79MB/s; Max: 175 MB/s; Average: 140MB/s;
Write: Min: 74MB/s; Max: 172 MB/s; Average: 135MB/s;
Access Time: 17.3ms
The drives are running at between 32 degrees celsius and 45 degrees celsius in my case after being under full load for the past 10 hours. It's completely dependent on how much airflow you have on your drives.
What is a NAS?
NAS = Network Attached Storage. Basically, it's a box of hard drives that you can access over your network or use as any external hard drive via USB/eSATA. What makes a NAS different than a normal external drive is a few things. The main reason is because you can normally setup a RAID on a NAS so if a hard drive dies on you, you don't lose a single bit of data! Different raid versions offer different levels of redundancy.Read more ›
Update: July 20, 2014: I got the replacement in and guess what? THE SAME THING HAPPENED!! They need to verify the contents of the box to ensure that what is in the box is the same as what is on the label!!

I ordered these drives for an Oyen Digital 5 bay case which I have already reviewed. These drives arrived in one box with each drive individually packed in a smaller box. The drives had fhe flexible plastic caps on each end and the two small boxes were padded in the bigger box. Both of these drives checked out and have been running just fine for almost 5 months now. They run cool to the touch so I am happy with the temperatures. They are pretty much noiseless work very nicely in a small NAS environment. It would be a no brainer recommending these drives if that were the end of the story. But as Paul Harvey used to say "now for the rest of the story".
Last week I decided it was time to add two more drives to the NAS enclosure. Since I was happy with the ones I had I ordered two more from Amazon. They actually arrived a day late via FedEx but that wasn't a problem. When I was handed the box I could hear the contents sliding around inside. The box itself had no apparent damage so I took it inside and opened it. Inside were the two drives sitting on the bottom of the box with inadequate air bag padding on top. The drives were sealed in the anti static bags.
I opened the first one and there were two warning signs right off the bat. There were two seals one sitting over the other. The label on the drive had pits and scratches in the label. It had all the looks of a used drive. I inserted the drive in a dock and after a few seconds I received the familiar not initialized warning. I told Disk Utility to initialize it which it did. When The process finished the drive mounted instead of noname I got: 801.57GB ST3000VN W6A0 Media.Read more ›
Goodness knows that I have absolutely had it dealing with WD "Green" drives for which this is a replacement. Considering that I have gone through several of those drives with a 100% failure rate over the last 3 years or so, it got to the point I needed to look for an alternative. Pretty sad too considering that I was using said drives as they were intended, as archival and video storage; meaning that they were infrequently accessed. Don't get me wrong, I still really like WD's top end stuff like their Velociraptor series which I still use as a primary drive. However when it comes to bulk storage, I need something that is going to hold up and not cost a fortune at the same time, hence this drive by Seagate.
All things considered, I'm actually impressed with this drive. For one thing, even though my understanding is that it is supposed to only run at 5800 RPM, it actually is noticeably faster and more responsive than the "Green" drive it replaced. Currently have Acronis Drive Monitor installed in my machine and thus far the feedback that software has offered has shown absolutely flawless operation thus far. If Seagate continues to keep up this level of quality, I would have no problem going back as a customer or recommending these drives to my clients.
