Seems like a good deal for a 4tb drive with a 3yr warranty.  I beleive this drive could be considered a WD Red competitor.

Fry's Electronics has the same drive for $139.00 if you can find a store that has one in stock.  But you'll pay tax and have to pay for gas to get to the store...

This is the same drive that is inside the Hitachi Touro external drives.  The external drives can in some instances (like this) be cheaper than the internal drive.

Yes, but this has a 3yr warranty where the external only has a 1.    And I don't think it is the exact same drive.  I beleive that the external is a 5700rpm drive and this is a 5400rpm drive.

Hmm, you're correct.

My external is being reported as:

Model: Hitachi HDS5C4040ALE630

Firmware: MPAOA3B0

Rotation speed: 5,700 RPM

 

*Edit

Neither this review, nor the Hitachi official specs list the RPM speed.

4TB on one drive.  Crazy talk!

 

Yeah I remember when I was really just getting into computers back in early to mid ninties, I consulted with a friend of a friend who was a recent computer grad and making his living working with personal computers, he said that I did not need to get that bigger "mb" drive on a Dell I was considering purchasing, that I would never use that space. How wrong he was.

640K is more memory than anyone will ever need on a computer

 

 

 

 

When I first got an Intelivision and played football on it you could actually see their legs moving (as opposed to Atari) and I said "It'll never get more real than this." But I was only 6 or 7.

Fortunately for us, tech has continued to progress exponentially over the years :)

 

BTW, KydDynoMyte, the 640K comment is a misquote: Bill never said that, at least not exactly like that.. just sayin'
