  1. So my HDN726040ALE614 has arrived and I've filled it 22%. My first HGST: HDN724040ALE640 is getting so full defraggler is throwing out complaints. Newer version (released Feb 2017) is faster with it dealing with smaller data files more quickly as seen at start of test. I took two tests of the first HGST (0S03665) with crystal diskmark as I thought 98% full was effecting the result. 2nd test with 76% full didn't change things much. The 0S04005 frankly blew it away in this test. All on small platform using latest drivers and run today. I'm off to Sorry I'm not sure how to do spoiler tags here for the attached images. Edit: I lied that ATTO on HGST was not run today (the one where I used ms paint to draw change a 10 into a 9), it was not run on the same volume either. It was run on H which is like 3.2Tb and I've rerun it on volume e which is 400Gb and the results are impressive. Maybe volume H needs its free space defragged. Attached the ATTO HGST 2017 E 23_08_2017.jpg result. I'm rerunning crystal disk mark on volume E (which btw is 89% full). Just noticed my crystal disk mark screenshots have no identifiying test. The first 2 are 0S03665 on volume H and the 3rd is 0S04005, the last one is 0S03665 again this time on volume E which for some reason benches higher than volume H. Just did test: UserBenchmarks: Game 58%, Desk 93%, Work 60% CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K - 98.4% GPU: AMD R9 280X - 53.1% SSD: Samsung 850 Evo 250GB - 105.1% HDD: Hitachi HDN726040ALE614 4TB - 105.8% HDD: HGST Deskstar NAS 4TB - 52.8% HDD: WD Green 2TB (2011) - 54.7% HDD: WD WD10EACS-00ZJB0 1TB - 44.6% USB: SanDisk Ultra USB 3.0 64GB - 33.9% USB: SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 32GB - 80% RAM: HyperX Savage DDR3 2400 C11 2x8GB - 89.3% MBD: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming 5
  2. Hello, I bought a brand new HGST Deskstar 4TB NAS (HDN724040ALE640) sealed in a retail box. After unboxing and physically inspecting it, I discovered major material defects on the sides of the HDD case in the proximity of the screw holes. You can see one image of each side here: (clicking on an image shows the full resolution) The manufacturing date shows October 2014 with a full 3 year warranty according to the HGST warranty webpage. I talked to HGST about this and they said I should return the drive to the seller and get a new one (only possible on monday...). I'm just curious: Did anyone else observe such defects? Are those just material defects produced in the fab, which shouldn't have passed QA? Or was this drive repackaged out of a enclosure? (I can't possibly imagine that leaving such deep marks even if the drive was removed with raw power?! Plus it came in a sealed retail box...) I read about repackaged / relabeled HGST NAS bulk drives with some scratches but this is clearly worse. I'm really looking forward for some answers conceptV
