Not bad, imagine taking 5 of these apart and putting them in one of those cheap HP MicroServers. X)

What is the height of the drive inside?


Assuming it has a Deskstar 7K4000 drive inside it, 26.1mm, the same as lower capacity drives.

wow... i will assume more comments..

not a bad price if it is a 7k400 considering the current best for 2x2tb would be about £160 (i got 2x2tb 7k300 for £110 a year ago from tesco).

£180 incl. vat/p&p on regular ebuyer: ebuyer.com/339…504

internal version of the 7k400 is £250-270 elsewhere, for some reason hitachi drives are often cheaper externally - guess the warranty is lower or something....?

still think i'd go with 2x2tb for backup, 4tb is a lot of data to lose (unless you buy two).

Bought one last week and dismantled it. Its a 7200rpm SATA 4TB drive in there.

4TB, that's great!

But how much 'real' space do you actually get? 3.2TB?

I'm not very good with computers, so please bear with my ignorance.
But could I take this apart and use it as my main HDD for my OS?

Wow, I think I would just take out the 4TB and put that in my PC and put something smalling in this external case.

you'd have to be insane to use a 4tb drive as your main os, that's what a small ssd is for.

plus there's various issues with booting off >2tb drives (uefi bios, gpt partition table etc.)

with the 5% filesystem overhead and manufacturer's insistence on using 1000 instead of 1024 for gigabytes, i'd assume this would format as 3.8tb maximum, which concurs with my 2tb giving me 1.9tb (and 1tb = 0.93tb) when using JFS. not sure about NTFS though.

Can anyone confirm whether you can take this out and simply plug in to a sata connection internally?

does anyone know if taken out and put in a hp microserver n36l the bios will recognizs the full size?

if it's anything like their 2tb version then you can't really reuse the case once you've opened it, as you have to break it to get in, but it should be sata

Here is a take apart video for the 3TB version, for those too lazy to look for it in Google.

Did you check the serial number online to see if it came up with any warranty??

I got one and took the drive out, put in my PC - happy days.
