Review: Western Digital Enterprise WD RE 4 TB Drive

4 Drives

Today I’m taking another look at Western Digital’s WD RE 4 TB WD4000FYYZ enterprise drives. I reviewed a single WD4000FYYZ in our Western Digital 4 TB roundup, and Western Digital was kind enough to provide us with some more drives to put through their paces. The WD RE 4 TB FYYZ was the highest performing drive in our earlier roundup, and as an enterprise drive, it’s rated for double the load/unload cycles of the consumer drives. As such, these drives are optimized for RAID arrays. The specifications of the drive are below: Interface – SATA 6.0Gb/s Capacity – 4TB RPM – 7200 RPM Cache – 64MB Load/Unload Cycles

In terms of OneDrive upgrades, the first upgrade comes by the way of free storage which was previously 7 GB (was originally 25 GB when it was first launched as SkyDrive) and is now 15 GB. So, Microsoft giveth, then Microsoft taketh, and then Microsoft giveth once again. I guess Microsoft just assumes that people have incredibly short memories or something, but this isn’t really much news other than the

Review: Seagate Backup Plus FAST 4 TB Portable Hard Drive

SONY DSC

Today I’m taking a look at the Seagate Backup Plus FAST 4 TB portable hard drive. However, referring to it as a hard drive is a bit misleading, as the Backup Plus FAST is actually two 2 TB 2.5” drives in a RAID 0 array. This contributes to the speeds the drives can provide, as a striped RAID 0 array improves performance to up to double of what a single drive would be capable of. The drive comes in basic packaging, which includes a quick-start guide, an 18” USB 3.0 cable, and a USB 3.0 Y cable, which has two USB connectors: one for power
