All of sr71's Fry's post have the typo @frys rather than simply Fry's which means these posts never pop up in someone's "Fry's" alert.

The 4TB HGST is just as good (if not better) than the WD Reds.

WD Red or HGST in NAS? [arstechnica.com]

Have 4 of the HGST 4TB drives in my Synology DS1412+ and use 2 8TB WD Reds for backup.

The problem with HGST these days are the drop in quality as per reviews that I read.

I really would like to go the HGST route because they are now for being reliable but I'm in doubt this days.

Any specific 4TB HGST specific model recommended?

This is anecdotal, but I have 2 of their 64MB cache Deskstar models for 4 years and error rates are really low even though I didn't realize I was running them at 115+ degrees heat. Bought 3 of the new 128MB ones in January and ran them through 2 passes of full random read/write and they passed but one of them failed after 3 months.

Submitted an RMA request on website, never received a reply, sent an email and was told RMA was never created. The shipping instructions are ridiculously particular to reject you for no reason. Must be in anti-static bag with 2" of solid foam padding and encased in tightly fitted corrugated cardboard box with the RMA number written exactly 3 times on the outside, any other type of packing filler is automatic warranty deny. Been a week since the drive was delivered and they said they haven't received it yet....

These drives are cheaper than the WD Red ones and are higher performance so I'll keep buying them but if you aren't running these in parity or mirror mode, you're asking for trouble.

Hi,

Anyone have a code for the 4TB Backup Plus Hub external drive they aren't going to use?

I've been needing a new external for a while now and registered too late on Fry's for the code. DM me if possible. Thanks!
