Wondering if I can use it simply as a backup internal drive?

It can be used as a backup internal drive. That's how I'm going to be using them.

Damn. I bought 2 of these last week for $157 on Amazon.

The tax savings would have been ~$22....enough for $1 tips at Flashdancers. nod

This is the top rated 4TB on the market, not sure why more people aren't into it. Ordered 2, thanks OP

Everyone seems so obsessed with the WD reds, when the truth is they get pretty terrible real world reviews and seem to have high failure rate.

Over the years the WD blacks have really let me down, I owned 4 and all of them failed within 2 years... 5 year warranty, you'll be needing it.

This drive has 5 star reviews on newegg, is faster than the WD reds, and has the exact same 3 year warranty.

$160 is still pretty expensive, I'll bite when it gets around $140

I was looking at the WD Reds, but I figured if bad shipping packaging was enough to kill them, then vibration would do the same.

Questionable as to this drive being the top rated 4TB on the market, I don't think there has been enough time for the amount of ratings like the Reds. Just because it is a 7200 drive doesn't mean it is going to be fast, I am pretty sure I read a review that this drive actually had disappointing read/write speeds for being a 7200 drive.

All brands have tons of horror stories in their reviews, makes it very hard to base a decision on that. I have both WDs and Seagates and they have been fine.

These scored in the same tier with the Blacks trading blows on benchmark tests.

Toss in that Hitachi is, by far, the most reliable brand in the market, and that they're quieter than the noisy Black drives, and then toss in this price and this becomes a no brainer selection if one is looking for a HD.

It only concedes power consumption to the Red. Idle power consumption of the drive is 6.9 watts with a peak startup current of 1A for 5V and 2A for 12V.
