WD blue (WD recertified costed me around £79 last month). I am looking for another one for my NAS, cheapest WD Red I could find is for £94 (recertified) so this seems to be good price for brand new one.

thanks OP, ordered given current price of recertified is around 94

If you absolutely need the faster sequential speeds and will be constantly needing these speeds then go for the more expensive Toshiba. Scroll down to customer images on their Amazon pages and customers usually post a screenshot of speed tests. If not go for the cheaper Seagate.

Just make sure you do an extended test before copying/writing any data to a new drive. Western Digital Data Lifegaurd and Seatools will do the trick. A 4tb drive will likely take more than 4 hours to do those tests, but will give you the go ahead that the drive is error/fault free.

Hope that helps.

Going through amazon reviews it seems several of these failed within a few weeks... Hoped Seagate would eventually start making reliable drives again, but it seems not yet.
For some (odd) reason, in our environment (200+ PCs and 40+ servers), the big majority of failed drives throughout the years were Seagates... I won't buy any time soon, any Seagate

I dont know why people think things should always get cheaper a pair of nike air max wouldnt be cheaper now than they were 5 10 years ago. At least hdd prices havent skyrocked like ssd prices due to nand shortage

The ST4000DM005 is a 5900 RPM drive, contrary to what you may read on some sellers sites, seagate themselves are also a little vague on the specs.... http://www.seagate.com/www-content/product-content/barracuda-fam/barracuda-new/files/barracuda-ds-1900-3-1608us.pdf I've had one for a couple of weeks 24/7, works fine. Originally ordered from amazon, waited a week then re-ordered from ebuyer who currently sell for £95.69, received next day click and collect (extra, but not much).

The majority of your drives, working and not, were probably seagate !

be prepared for it to be noisy, I have one of these and it's the loudest drive I have heard, looki at reviews and it a common problem with the drive and not an issue with it failing. I now use it as a backup drive and I'm soib gonna remove it completely

In the process of stripping out all my old Samsungs and Barracuda's currently, one failed on my NAS and the rebuild killed another so I'm getting rid.

Oh I know I definitely should, but seeing as it's lasted this long it's clear to me it is without manufacturing defects and of a good batch so it could potentially last a lot longer.
I've got some old clickers from the 90s which still work to this day

Even so everything important is backed up and most of the data is just throw-away game installs and applications.

"Old" tech, trying to drive (sorry) people to new tech to make their money. Of course this is still cheaper than SSD at the mo, which should shift soon.

This is going for £129.99, is it worth the £30 more over this?

been out of the technical scene for a while but I'm thinking of setting up a NAS with these drives to store my files

what are these drives like? Seagate any good anymore? all my drives are samsungs
#39
If you're intent on keeping large files of files then it's a steady deal.

Personally, I will hang on until the 1TB range of SSD's come down in line with this price as I'd rather have less storage but at faster read/write speeds.

Good for keeping lots of family videos and pictures on though!

Always have two backups though, one offsite.
