I wonder how many people are going to buy this just to rip it apart and use the 4TB drive as an internal drive. I personally wouldn't dare run this drive unless it was in some sort of raid. I don't know anyone who has 4TB of data that they would be okay with loosing. Maybe AV professionals do.

Well, the chance of failure is pretty unrelated to HDD size and the value of data not neccessarily related to their size either. Or simply: if the data is valueable, you've got to have some kind of backup. Individual HDD sizes don't change anything in this regard.

On one system, I actually have the backup drive raided, turning two 2tb drives into a single volume 4tb to make it easier for time machine.
