Some customer reviews of Hitachi Deskstar 4TB

Most helpful reviews

David, Cambridge Heavy media user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Lots of storage, quiet operation. Works perfectly in my Mac Pro (2008). All I had to do was insert the drive into one of the bays and then format it. Not bad for a machine only initially designed for 1TB drives. I partitioned it in to two partitions and put the system on one. No problems booting the machine from the drive.
Bad points:
Non so far, time will tell the reliability.
