Even with the 5900rpm spindle speed of its hard disk, this drive has noticeably faster load times over a fully mechanical 7200rpm drive once an application is booted up a couple times and its files are in the solid state cache. Due to this method of operation, it excels at gaming and I use it solely for that purpose. Its roominess is very comfortable as I have over 350 games installed on it (many of which exceed 20GB) and nearly 1TB of storage remaining. With many newer triple-A titles being as large as 100GB or more, the 4TB capacity is great for keeping many games installed, and the drive is an excellent value.

This thing is old but reliable. Fairly quick, but it gets a little loud.

from completed build Custom HTPC Build October 2014
Comes with an 8GB SSD built in and over time learns which files you use the most to give quicker access. Good for an HTPC build as you save having two seperate drives. As it is over 3GB must initialise/format using GPT to access all the space in one partion. Quite noisy.
