Overall we feel the WD Black 4TB presents a great balance of performance and capacity, and if the MSRP is met, price as well. With a massive 4TB capacity, consistently strong performance, quiet operating volume and a 5-year warranty we strongly recommend...

We have to be honest here. The Western Digital Caviar Black 4TB is a bit of a letdown. It came out more than 6 months after the Hitachi 7K4000 4TB , yet the Hitachi is faster, cheaper, quieter and more efficient. Granted, you get five years of warranty...

Huge and massively fast but this high price lets this disk down.

Heel eerlijk: Western Digital stelt ons teleur met de Caviar Black 4TB. De schijf is ruim een half jaar later op de markt gekomen dan de Hitachi 7K4000 4TB , maar de Hitachi schijf is sneller, goedkoper, stiller én zuiniger. Goed, op de Caviar...
