WD Red 4TB GIVEAWAY!

Recommended Posts

I got my PC for a year now and still haven't upgraded to more storage. The horror haha! At the moment I'm running a Seagate 2TB ST2000DM001 green hard drive in Raid 1 I believe (not sure though, I don't know anything about this raid stuff, my dad does). It's kinda slow, but still performs well and is very quiet. I needed a large hard drive because I have a lot of games, programs and recorded videos for my video-editing projects. I only got 100GB of space left and I haven't spoken about my laptop where my backup is at.

 

Anyway, I shared the giveaway for an extra entry:

I have a Samsung 120 GB SSD as my boot drive (and my only INTERNAL drive) at the moment. I was running on a tight budget and of all the SSD's i saw at the price point this was pretty much a no brainer. Also the performance graphs looked pretty decent on the videos of yours and I am very happy with it. I also made myself an EXTERNAL STEAM drive.. which worked out pretty well... it just takes a while to load.. but the games run just fine..I was thinking of getting a SEAGATE 1 TB drive.. but thats just for the heck of it..

1. I Had a 160GB Seagate and it failed, so I had to replace it and also it was already time for an upgrade so I bought a Westerd Digital WD5000AADS Caviar Green for a good price.

I am running a SEAGATE barracuda 1TB, I bought it when I assembled my pc and was on a budget(the HDD was cheap and had good reviews on the net). The reason I got the 1TB is because I need enough storage for my porn :D. I also have an external 500MB WD "my passport" for backup and other data such as movies. My next upgrade would probably be a 120GB samsung 840 pro ssd for my boot drive and for using some programs and games.

120gb intel 520 SSD, 2x 400gb WD AAKS <old scratch disks, 1TB Green full of Steam and games and a 2x 2TB Raid1 green's (not ideal apparently) 20gb Music, Family Photos actually take up alot of space! and
Videos of me and my friends from school, road trips, my old baby videos from old 8mm 
copied and no drive fails yet thank god!

The reason for needing all these HDD's .. stupid young 17 me decided to rip my SG1 1-8 dvd collection to HDD so i could store the DVD's safely for 50 years and play the digital copy's to my TV ^.^
Great idea huge pain in my %$#@ but it worked out great now cause i do casual video editing for friends but i think im going to need a dam NAS soon :/  ive been eye balling a WD RED for so long and then Australian HDD prices went up $50
​thank god this giveaway is international WAN SHOW FOR LIFE!

I have 3 1 tb samsung hdd. One of them is my boot drive. I know ssd are better for boot drive but i dont have enough cash on me for a ssd.. I collect a lot of movies tv series videos thats why i need the space. Also i play a lot of games so i need the space. I am thinking of increasing my storage as all my drives are almost full.  Unfortunately as ssds are expensive in my country so i have to wait a bit more when the price goes down to buy a ssd. My laptop has a 640 gb hdd. its mostly used for study stuff as i am still a student

Another awesome giveaway linus

 

I am currently running a Samsung boot ssd for the speedy boot times. I love when my desktop boots in 5 seconds and my friend's takes several minutes. For mass storage i have 2 2TB western digital reds in raid 1 which gives me security that my data will be safe.

I run a single TB Seagate Hard drive that is just sat in the optical drive slot becasue I don't have any hard drive rails lol.

And i'm running that because I'm saving for a new CPU and don't want to spend hundred of pounds on an SSD just yet. I'll wait a few years until they are a lot larger and cheaper :P

1: Im currently rebuilding my computer due to have lost it in a fire :/ basing it on the new ivy-e 4930k and the new rampage IV black mobo. But my old config was as follows:

 

2 x corsair force series SSD 120gb in raid-0 for OS

3 x WD velociraptor 10k rpm 300gb in raid-0 for games

1 x WD blue 640gb for random stuff, backups of the OS partition, pictures etc.

 

I started with the velociraptors in raid-0 as OS disk but it was highly unstable so bought a pair of SSDs on a summersale and put the rapors as a game disk wich has worked flawlessly.

I have a samsung 830 128GB ssd in my system, thats it. I was originally going to buy another one for raid 0 but after about 3 months samsung stopped selling 830:s in 128GB(I live in sweden) .

So now im stuck, can't afford  new 250GB ssd or or a harddrive.  You could say i have had real bad luck. 

 

If i got something out of this givaway it would be i life saver! 

 

I am going to share this to swedens biggest website for computers and stuff.

okay, so, i'm using 500GB internal storage on my laptop. and 150GB as an external storage. i would like the WDred because it would increase my gaming storage and important files. in my laptop, there is too much important files and so much risk of having to format it.

I have a laptop, and since there is only one had drive slot in the laptop, I have to take out the optical drive and replace and put my HDD in it, so that I could use my SSD as the boot drive. The SSD boot drive is the Kingston SSD Now V300. 

I want to use the red drive in my NAS, since it has two slot, it will be pretty darn awesome to expand it with the WD Red.

Fantastic!!!!!!!

To be honest i have (x5) 160 GB Hitachi hard drives that i salvaged from old computers and I am too broke to buy new stuff. I do, however have a 1 Tb Seagate external desktop drive that i use for storage. For my rig, i have already spent the majority of my savings on the rest of the components. I somehow broke my first mother board and had to buy a new one (Sabertooth). I have not yet had the money to invest in water cooling, instead i also salvaged old fans from old computers to cool my system. The reason why i run my rig this way is mainly because i am tight on money, due to school expenses. I still need to upgrade my graphics, RAM, and monitor (burned part of my screen) and get proper peripherals (all i have for gaming is my Razer 2012 Mamba & Belkin n52te). Thank you for your time and generosity.

1x 128GB Crucial M4, because it's one of the most reliable SSD's

1x 1TB WD Green ( WD10EARS)), to store music, movies, etc, which don't really need high performance and the Green is a cheaper drive

1x 2TB Seagate (7200.14), to store games, VM's and other stuff I don't want on my SSD (browser cache, etc). I would have liked to buy a WD Black for this, but that one was too expensive in my opinion, so I went with the cheaper Seagate alternative.

1. I have a desktop running with a 80 GB SATA 1 Western Digital HDD and a 500 GB Toshiba SATA 3. I wish I could get a WD HDD again because this one it's almost 7 years old with a lot of hours going on (bought in 2006) and it still really good and reliable.

I can't say many things about my hard disks because I don't have a really big storage, but a NAS is a really nice (and wet :D ) dream.

I use a external drive because I need to since I own a hp it tends to crash a lot so I need the space to keep my stuff; Hp told me to do it.

I have a boot SSD set up with most of my games on it. It's an OCZ Agility 3 240gb drive. The reason for this particular drive was price, I new I was getting an SSD when I built my new ans this drive was on a big sale when I was buying the parts for the system. I also have a Seagate 2tb Barracuda storage drive for all of my music, movies, and steam games. I also just bought a Seagate 3tb Expansion external drive for backup to replace the old 1tb Seagate Expansion drive that I had already filled up.
