[Review] HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZRZ – AliExpress

The HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZRZ was acquired in AliExpress, in Storage MagicKing Store. It is the third of those who acquire, and the other two are still in full operation. I have spoken to each of them in articles here in Skooter Blog:

  1. [Review] HDD Western Digital Blue 3.5″ WD40EZRZ 4TB – eBay, from 06/06/2018.
  2. [Review] WD Blue 4TB PC Hard Drive – 5400 RPM Class, SATA 6 Gb/s, 64 MB Cache, 3.5″ – WD40EZRZ – Amazon, from 03/02/2019.

Motivation

As I mentioned in the previous article, recently one of my HDDs began to fail, fading and returning the system, causing crashes. It was a Seagate Barracuda 3TB, ST3000DM001 model. This is an especially problematic model. I had some of them at work (About three if not remember correctly) and all pifaram.

And then replace it got the HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZRZ, for I have given more luck with Western Digital HDDs, at least for now. HDDs are 4TB with a good value for money and the extra 1TB can be useful.

As in Brazil the prices are higher and it is more difficult to find a HDD Western Digital Blue, naturally I opted for purchase directly from China.

Unboxing

The HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZR It came very well packaged, in a cardboard box wrapped in air cushions. And the very cardboard box also came wrapped in air cushions. Only way to an HDD withstand the bad treatment of Post.

Inside the box HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZR It was sealed with anti-static plastic factory. The seller also sent a SATA cable and 4 screws, I did not expect, because these HDDs OEM always comes with nothing, and the announcement did not mention these extra.

Check out the photos and the video of the unboxing from the HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZR:

Tests

I tested the new HDD in the first Wavlink USB 3.0 Dual Bay Docking Station, that I introduced in the last article, in an attempt to clone the HDD that was giving problems. But it did not work, because the HDD with problems was no longer being recognized.

But HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZR It was identified correctly on the PC when connected alone to Wavlink USB 3.0 Dual Bay Docking Station, as can be seen on the screen Crystaldiskinfo:

Then, then I installed HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZR on my PC, and tested again with Crystaldiskinfo and the CrystalDiskMark.

After that I began to recover backups that had the old HDD. Most of it was games, as collections eXoDOS and ScummVM (old DOS games), ISOs Sega Saturn group Redump, ISOs PC Engine CD, Sega CD, and Playstation the group Trurip, etc. They are things that I could download again, but I would rather not do it because it my low ratio on the PleasureDome, which is an excellent tracker from torrents. But how it was little that had not backup, the little I had to redownload not much affected my ratio.

Only “pra vary”, o Correios fez lambança e enviou meu pacote lá para Santa Catarina para fazer um passeio, para só depois ele voltar para São Paulo e seguir com a entrega. É muita incompetência!

Final Considerations

Atéagora o HDD Western Digital Blue 4TB WD40EZRZ Vem se comportando BEM, connected 41 vezes e com 230 hours of use. Recuperei a maior parte dos dados que estavam no HDD anterior através de backups e novos downloads, ficando ainda com 1,84 TB free. Devo usar parte desses espaço com ISOs do Sega CD group Redump quando tiver um Megas.
