Decent HDD

Verdict: Decent hard drive. Bought it as a parity drive for my unRAID server. Compared to the WD Red series, it performs the same. May have less longevity but none the less a good drive

Drive Died In Less Than A Month

Verdict: I bought two of these 4TB Seagate drives. I am now wishing I would have purchased Western Digital drives instead. One of them is still working, but I don't trust it. It might as well be a ticking time bomb. Thank goodness for RAID.

Seagate BarraCuda 4TB SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" 256MB Cache, 5900RPM,Internal Hard Drive( 2 years warranty )

Verdict: Currently using this as bulk storage for all my Steam games (plenty big enough so far), and it's definitely fast enough to play said games from.

Not as advertised

Verdict: The spin speed on this is not 7200 but only 5425. The PRO version is the only one that is 7200. The throughput was less than 100MBs so I am returning the product.

*Not a 7.2 krpm drive*

Pros: bandwidth and size per unit cost is excellent. fine for RAID-1 since my OS is on SSD
Cons: both WD and Seagate have discontinued 7200rpm drives for the consumer level and lowered the warranty periods to 2 years. disappointing, but the cost/benefit ratio for the 5y warranty drive isn't really good if you replace the drive in case of failure within 5 years anyway; the expected lifetime of...
Verdict: Be aware that Seagate and WD both lowered their warranties to 2y and their spindle speeds to ~5400rpm for consumer level drives. You'll notice that the drive read speed has dropped to 190MB/s from ~210MB/s with the 7200.14 model range.
