Expert Review

HGST - once Hitachi before Westerrn Digital bought the company - is known for its innovations in storage capacity, having been the first company to bring not only the 1TB hard drive to the world, but then also the 4TB hard drive just a year or so ago. Now HGST tries to be an innovator while carving its own niche in a market dominated by WD and Seagate, and the Ultrastar 7K4000 4TB Enterprise Drive tries to do just that. While WD and Seagate fight over both consumer and enterprsie markets, HGST looks to focus on enterprise with its high-capacity, 7200RPM hard drive. As a second edition of the original 4TB drive, the Ultrastar offers not just the same innovative performance, but added capabilities in performance that not just Enterprise but also performance-oriented customers would appreciate. For these reasons, the HGST Ultrastar is worth a look if you're willing pay a pretty penny for its technology.Rating: 4/5
