    Dang so not the $35 deal ? 😂

    is this drive this loud?

    Is this an okay hard drive to chuck in a desktop PC?

    • interested to know as well.

    • Yeah, but more built for durability than speed?

      Wouldn't want it as your primary drive to boot from. If you're using an SSD or m2 drive for your OS, gaming and apps and you'll be sweet.

      Albeit a different brand, I've got a single WD Green 3TB running fine (with cloud backup) as my archive drive in my PC. It is not a great performer for outright transfer speed on the odd occasion that I access it.

    • Yeah I would reccomend this and WD Red Plus for desktop/game storage. They are the only affordable CMR drives left. Most of the consumer drives (blue, barracuda) use SMR and are sh*t slow (I had one). Get a CMR drive for games and a SSD for boot and you will be happy.

      I would probably go for 6tb 5400rpm variant of the ironwolf for a desktop. Thats at the performance to noise sweet spot.

      4tb model only has 64mb of cache, where as the revised 6tb 5400rpm has the standard 256mb cache.

      Yes, it's designed for 24/7 use (i.e. running in a NAS), therefore it will run fine in a desktop computer as secondary data storage (media, games, etc.).

    Tempting, I need about 4 for my NAS Server

    • Likewise, I have a NAS (Unraid) with 4x4TB but SMR so I'd like to replace these with CMR. I'd also.like to know oif they're good for this. I don't need great speeds for my disks.

    • +3

      If you need 4 then ebay would be slightly cheaper.
      Amazon 129x4=516
      HT ebay 138.90 x 4 = 555.60, use code SPSAVER to take 50 off, total price down to 505.6 for 4units, 126.4 per drive

    I purchased it for 139 about 1.5 m ago for my qnap. I don't have any noise issues.

    Seems to be a permanent price drop rather than a discount?

  • +1

    Not $35? Haha

  • +2

    Waiting for a 10gb or 8gb WD Elements drive or WD Red deal for under $300!

    • +6

      10gb and 8gb are pretty old so if you find them, they'd be on cleanrance ;p

    • sir i can sell you 8gb drive for $300 and a bridge as well

    • I could sell you a cd rom burner to go with that too if you want

      • I will raise you and offer a double deck Akai Hifi with a stack of TDK tapes 😉

  • These ok for torrenting?

    • Depends, what are you legally torrenting :)

      • +1

        linux distros, 4tb of linux distros
        and yeah gotta keep updating those distros every week

    • What hard drive isn't?

      • Any SMR HDD …

    • They're "OK" … they'll get swamped by adding popular new torrents if you have a fast connection.

      You can improve this by downloading to an SSD and then setting your torrent client to automatically move files to the hard disk after downloading.

      • how do you do that? ^^^

        • Set your temp directory (SSD) and download directory (SATA) accordingly

  • great deal! thank you

  • Can somebody tell me what the difference if any between this one at $129 (ST4000VN008) and the other newer model (‎‎ST4000VNZ008) on Amazon's web page for $135 released about 12 months later by the look of things ? Is it a larger cache size ?

    Link to newer model - https://www.amazon.com.au/Seagate-IronWolf-SATA-64MB-Cache1-...

    Thanks D.

    On 2nd thoughts maybe just a typo on Amazon web page as the item header refers to the ST4000VN008 model. In case you're wondering I'm referring to the "Other Technical Details" bottom left…
