WD Red 4TB GIVEAWAY!

Recommended Posts

I have 4 Segate Cheeta 15K.5 ( not a big fan they where free ) Drives in Raid 0 for my games and 4 1TB WD Green drives in Raid 5 for all my stuff and 2 Samsung 840's in Raid 0 for the OS.  The 840's get backed up to the Raid 5 every night so i will never loose any ting.  I have 5 more of the WD's ( Not one has died over 2 years in a raid 5) and 3 more of the Segates ( PS 2 died already lol )  for back up so when ones dies i just swap them out with new ones.

HI,

 

My current HDD set-up is two 500gb Seagate HDDs (both around 4 years old), one of them is running the o/s and the other is storage. The HDD that is running the o/s is failing so the WD reds will make a huge difference as I now have no money for new drives dew to recent motherboard failure!

120gb samsung 840 for boot and seagate 2tb for mass storage

i originally wanted a 4tb wd red but since this is all i could afford in the current situation i wasn't able to get a 4tb red.
so i have most of my files in my 2tb and the rest of my files in an external hard drive... and even that's filling up pretty fast...
sad life is sad.
i'm planning to build a NAS for my family so that it'll be easier for us to share files. the wd 4th red will be a great start!

thanks if i win!

1. I am running Seagate st3500320a 500GB ( that famous one for huge problems ) as main hdd. Second one is Samsung F3 1TB and third one is some old Hitachi 320GB. Why do i use them ? Well I like to have lot of space, so i generated all avalable hdds and stack them. Soon I will buy new computer so inside there will be Samsung 840 EVO 250gb as boot drive, Seagate and Samsung for storage. Hitachi will go with rest of old config to nethyews.

 

2. Have facebook but dont have friends that care about tech stuff, so there is no point.

 

3. Dont have twitter

Right now i have a gaming pc i built myself.I have one WD blue 1 tb, a 256 gb toshiba ssd, but no external harddisk. I want a WD red since i have well over 80 games on steam and 20 on origin, and i record videos as well. Having one or two 4 tb Reds would be enough...at least until the next summer sale :P

I currently use a 250gb Intel 510 SSD for my boot drive. I have a mix of WD and seagate drives. Before I started using SSDs, I had a WD raptor which is still in use right now. I have a total of 6 HDDs in my PC and the number is due to an accumulation of hard disks over the years and me not wanting to part with them.

 

The smallest capacity drives I have in the system is the WD raptor and the intel SSD at 250gb. The largest is a 1TB WD Black.

1. I have a desktop that I built at home in which I am running a small SSD because I could not afford a larger one at the time I built it. Other than the SSD, I only have 80GB HDD from the mid 2000's, that I am using from an old computer I sourced parts from. I'm hoping that the drive does not die, because I cannot afford to replace it at the moment. My main drive is completely full of about two steam games and some applications I run for school, and my 80GB HDD is almost full of all my downloaded media.

Loving all the giveaways. Good luck everyone! :)

 

I use an Intel 520 120GB SSD as my boot drive (for obvious reasons) and a 1TB WD Black for games (only 70GB left...). I also have a 2TB WD Green for media and general storage (only 80GB left...). It pains me to say it, but I have no backups of any of my data. I simply can't afford it right now :(

I am currently running an OCZ Agility 3 60GB SSD for my boot drive and drivers because it is a great bang for the buck, and with features that allows easy firmware updates with a 3year warranty coverage. I am also using a 320GB HDD for my movies, music, games and etc. I have it with me for nearly 8years which was from my other system build and have not died on me. However, the capacity is really low with much steam and origin games taking up most of the space.

Well i run:

 

80GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 (2003/4, first seagate drive to have sata interface) to store non-essential files but it used to be an OS drive and after that a Network drive for the family. 

 

160GB WD Caviar SE (2005) as the backup drive for my SSD from where the OS was cloned to. Used to be a boot drive before that.

 

128GB Samsung 830 SSD as the boot drive after I won that drive in a contest. It was certainly a much needed speed increase as the WD drive above was much to slow for modern application's (such as Autocad and large games).

 

500GB WD MY Book essential drive (2008, usb 2.0) Severs as the family's network share drive to store music, pic's, doc's and even storing old games. Got it when circuit city was going bankrupt and it was $80 (normal price was in the $100  to $120 range at the time).   

 

750GB Seagate Goflex drive (2011, usb 3,0): Intended to be my "on the go" mass storage drive to fix other people's pc (runing Linux OS's and other tools) and to be able to store anything I need for any event I go to. Although it's currently serving as my primary storage drive for recording TV shows (my current rig does double duty as a gaming and HTPC rig).  Hope to get an internal drive to free this drive up for it's intended use.  I got this drive for $75 and I like the fact it can have different interfaces beyond USB (such as Esata).

I have a "big PC" that holds a Western Digital Blue 1TB and an HTPC that has a Western Digital Green 3TB EZRX and a Western Digital Scorpio Black of 500GB.The big PC holds the games and what-nots and the HTPC has all the movies and tv-shows.

 

I chose the Blue because I needed a large-capacity drive to hold movies/games and the OS.On my other machine,the 3TB is Green because the 500GB Scorpio Black is in charge of the OS.I chose the Scorpio Black to go with the 3TB Green because the case supports a 3.5" and a 2.5" and I needed as much storage as possible and as cheap,too!

Awesome giveaways Linus !!

Right now I'm using WD Blue 500GB no SSD unfortunately... It isn't enough :(. But hopefully soon I will be upgrading to minimally 120GB SSD and maybe some more storage. Sorry if I doubled some Ls :D

i use my set up because at the moment it's the easiest for me to monkey with, and it's relatively cheap ( standard hard drive, no raid on secondary machine) primary machine is more or less screwed at the moment >.>....

I am running a single WD 2TB internal drive, a 1TB NAS which has 2 1TB drives in raid 1. I also have a WD 1TB my passport.

I bought the NAS to backup important data from my PC, it has 2 1TB drives because I don't need much storage to backup my important stuff and the seagate 1TB drives were VERY cheap at the time. i have the my passport because when it is very useful to produce a backup of someones hard drive before disassembling their PC and the my passport is physically small.

I'm running some old Samsung 2,5" 320gb drive and Seagate Barracuda 160gb just because my PC is old(It wasn't upgraded since 2008) and I don't have much space in my mini ITX case.

Crucial M4 256Gb

WD something 500Gb I took of a MyBook External Drive

Maxtor 320Gb I took from my old HP PC

 

WD MyPassport Essential 500gb External drive

WD MyPassport 250Gb external Drive

 

At first I was just using the 320Gb I ripped from my old PC, which was all fine and dandy, untill it was full, this happened quite rapidly actually. When I found out my dad had a spare external MyBook I asked him if I could get the HDD out and put it in my PC. After a while my (i5 2500K) PC felt slow compared to my dad's (5 year old!!!) SSD powered MacBook Pro, so I ordered the Crucial 256Gb ssd and set it up as my new bootdrive, at the same time I installed Windows 8 because that was supposedly faster too,

 

I have a tonne of music too, so the 250Gb WD passport is purely a backup drive for all my music, I wouldn't want to lose any of it, so I'm making sure there's frequent backups, lastly the 500Gb external drive is to move around movies and such to other PC's.


i5 2500K - Asrock Extreme4 Gen3 - G.Skill RipjawsX 8GB- Asus GTX660 Ti - Crucial M4 256Gb

I use a 128GB SSD, for my Windows Ultimate 64bit, BF3 gamefiles and hopefully BF4 as well! I upgraded from a 7200RPM drive because I wanted the speed in order to launch my games fast, make windows boot fast and have a better experience using my PC.

 

I use an Hitachi 1TB 7200RPM and a Toshiba 2TB 7200RPM Hard Drives for my BF3 60-FPS recordings, because I make game montages, videos, and a lot of stuff for the BF3 Competitive community. I am going to a LAN event in 2 weeks, and I need a drive to record all the matches to !

 

Thanks a lot linus !

My set-up is: (Its not built yet)

Asus P8Z77 WS Motherboard

3rd Gen. Core i7 3770K

Corsair H110

Samsung 840 120GB SSD (Boot drive)

WD 4TB Black drive (for my programs)

G.Skillz 32GB DDR3 ram

EVGA SC 760 2gb

OCZ 850w PSU

 

I have chose this set-up because I am in college studying for a B.S in Information Technology. I need my computer to be fast, reliable, and have enough storage space to run alot of programs. My major is in web design and software development and I have  studies in computer forensics as well. I want to have a system that has structure. A drive to house my OS and a drive to run my Programs like Visual Studio, adobe creative suite, etc... and to have a third drive to store text books, rubrics and assignments so 1 drive wont cludder the other.
