chronofusion says:

Newegg delete this idiot’s review of WD4001FAEX 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache item N82E16822236407. He CLAIMS he has ” High teck knowledge & the hardrive ” failed after 2 years” His review is dated 5/20/2013 10:59:28 AM… about half a day ago.
4 tb internal hard drives WERE NOT available for sale until around 9-2011 and that WASN’T even this drive. Seagate beat WD to the market with an external in September 2011. 2yr mark is about 4 months away.
Newegg PLEASE delete that idiotic review.

gdsfgfds says:

omg yes i know how fucking encoding works. but you’re saying it like you would have the movie in blu-ray quality, which is gonna be atleast 15mbps in video. often alot higher

Petru Tiglar says:

You need to format the drive to GPT. You must also have 64-Bit version of windows.

gdsfgfds says:

high quality porn dude

Rakib Imtiaz Khan says:

I have an old mobo gigabyte G31M-ES2C can i add wd black 4tb for backup???

DJ Rome says:

Your attitude makes me not want to watch anything you upload.

MonikoComputers says:

Multiboot, Server, Media, PORN

gdsfgfds says:

well you should have just said hq 1080p video instead of blu-ray cuz thats makes it look like you were talking about blu-ray quality.

btw I would never compress a blu-ray movie…

You’re wrong.. or maybe i just misunderstood what u meant… lol fail

Anyways, i know alot about this stuff.

monkeh88 says:

who tested this hard drive with kontakt libraries? does it load the libraries fast?

M Nichols says:

depends on encoding

Patrick Crawford says:

Can I stick it in my ps3?

gdsfgfds says:

”With blu ray at 1080p”

You’re saying blu-ray quality in 1080p, which is gonna be atleast 20 gigs

QVear says:

How much does it cost?

Sonicdash24 says:

Looks like the best drive for my steam library.

Raiden Macer says:

*tap tap tap* “You don’t want to uh” *Taps the shit out of the drive* “BUMP the drive while it’s not in use”

Martin Haugen says:

My old HDD is a WD something.. it reads and writes at MAX 5 mbit/s :s a new one is already ordered!

toymaker94566 says:

Noobie Q here: Can I RAID-0 two of these 4TB drives in windows 7 – 64 for mass storage use? I can’t seem to find a clear explanation from anyone! Is there a 2TB limitation in windows 7 or is this a hardware issue? 🙁

Thanks in advance!

stefan brankovic says:

Here in Serbia , prices are very stupid for computer parts . Because of that I found WD Blue and Red for 80$ . So , I know that red is meant for NAS storage , but is it good for normal use and answer me what should I choose . I also have Seagate and Hiachi over here .

Ygrec says:

why hard drive says he have 4 TB and have only 3.6 TB ? sorry for bad english i am romanian 🙂

unlokia says:

So what? The whole point of hard disks is to store data. I don’t think you’re going to be worrying about a couple of pounds on your electricity bill when you hdd crashes and you lose 5 years+ worth of rendered video sequences… do you?


JMA Films says:

This or Seagate 4tb?

Jonathan Ho says:

Hi guys, I loaded the 4TB and suddenly it shows 1.8TB, what can I do ? thanks

Michael McNamara says:

WTF? 4TB is not that big nowadays…

M Nichols says:

Do you understand how encoding works?

kakasedfg says:

dude this is just fucked up and racist why they don’t have white and brown WD just black  


I like the black series wd drives, not had one fail over many years of regular use. I tried an hitachi 3tb and I won’t stray from wd black again, didn’t last me a year

Krzysztof Blazejewicz says:

i remember when i run dblspace in dos my hard drive went to whopping 240MB yes that is megabytes!

silverbird58 says:

It’s the size of a 8 track tape. wonder if they sell em 6 tapes for 99 cents if you joint thier hard drive club?

monkeh88 says:

omg my old 500gb and 250gb are on 50mb /read :s

unlokia says:

I disagree – there’s nowhere near enough redundancy there to make it useful. Anything less than x3 drives seems pointless, imho.

unlokia says:

Listen, the value of multiple terabytes of data, accumulated over many years, is worth exponentially more than ANY electricity bill.

I’ll wait for you to change heart, when your “backup” crashes 😉
