Seagate Desktop HDD 4TB 5900RPM 64MB SATA 6Gb/s ST4000DM000 Review

The Seagate ST4000DM000 Desktop HDD is a hard disk that has been optimized to give you high storage at a relatively low price. Naturally, it’s normal for buyers to expect to make some compromises to make up for the low price.

 

However, Seagate has made sure that this trend is minimal in this model by delivering impressive numbers in almost all categories. Of course, there are several areas where you will feel that other models could have done better, but this won’t be a big thing for most users especially when they consider the price per gigabyte. Let’s see what this 4TB SATA Desktop HDD gives to users. Let’s first look at the design of the drive. To ensure that the thickness doesn’t go to unacceptable extents, Seagate has incorporated the AcuTrac servo technology.

 

In simple terms, this technology enables them to use hard drive tracks that are only 75 nanometers thick. This thickness is approximately 10,000 times less than a millimeter. This is the reason why this HDD looks just like an ordinary 200GB SATA HDD yet the storage is 20 times more. Just like most other high capacity desktop hard drives from Seagate, the ST4000DM000 comes with a program known as DiskWizard that will enable you to use hard drives that are as large as 4TB in Windows PCs without requiring you to have UEFI BIOS. This HDD can achieve an average data rate of 146MB/s that can go to a maximum of 180MB/s.

 

One of the things that many users will be quick to notice is the relatively slower spindle speed of 5900 RPM when compared to the predecessor which was able to manage a speed of 7200 RPM. This will definitely lower the data transfer rates, but it will also lower the power consumption and reduce the surface temperatures. Some of the areas where you can use this HDD include home servers, all-in-one desktop PCs, gaming PCs, and even as external direct or network attached storage devices. Obviously, this HDD will work better in some applications than others hence you need to weigh your options and ensure that it’s your best option prior to purchase.

 

Before the launch of this model, Seagate has been very reluctant in releasing HDDs with capacities that are as high as 4TB. However, with the introduction of the Seagate ST4000DM000, users will be able to enjoy large storage capacities with an impressive price per gigabyte. In addition, you will also get the 6Gb/s SATA interface and the 64MB data cache. It comes with a 2 year limited warranty on parts and labor which is relatively shorter than most other similar devices.

  • The Good :
    high storage capacity, low surface temperatures, low power consumption
  • The Bad :
    low spindle speed, low data rate
Our score:
4.5 / 5
