[Review] HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB SATA 3.5″

In this article I talk about a HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB SATA 3.5″, acquired on AliExpress, shop Kandy Hong Kong Co. Unfortunately this store doesn't sell this product, so the links are all to the same product, but sold by another store.

A few months ago I spoke here in Skooter Blog about my purchase of a Western Digital WD HD Gold 4 TB. The experience was very positive because I was able to acquire a better quality model, rarely available in Brazil, with good price and sealed. In Brazil usually only are worse models, more expensive, and open, with baby kisses to store and possibly use.

Motivation

In August it was time for another of my HDs shut down the career. Again a Seagate HD, ST3000DM001 model. It's a bad model, I've lost a few of them in my work. This began to make noises and disappearing and reappearing in Windows, to disappear once.

The hard drive contained some drawings, films and serials. The most I could probably download again, others might not. But luckily I had a copy of everything on an external HD connected to My in, so I haven't bothered.

To replace the deceased, I chose the HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB SATA 3.5″. The WD Gold was no longer available in the shop. He would be my first choice for the longest warranty, from 5 years, against only 2 years of Western Digital Blue. But other than that, the Blue It was really the right, Since it consumes less energy and makes less noise. The 5400 rpm and resulting lower rate of reading are not a problem in a HD that is used.

Despite the risk of external HD that had data copy also fails, I didn't have such a hurry on replacing, so it's OK to wait the long period until you receive the new HD, Thanks to lengthy post office, It's worse with each passing day.

The WD RMA works normally in Brazil with these disks imported?
