Hitachi Deskstar 5K4000 4TB Hard Disk Drive Review

We rarely get to see retail packaging on internal disk drives. WD and Seagate always send OEM style packs, the drive in an anti-static bag, but Hitachi sends over the full kit, which is nice.


On the front of the package we get quite a bit of information about capacity and what type of product is inside.




The back of the package gives us some general information about the Deskstar product line, but nothing too specific.




The In Box Contents list and a general disclaimer about going over 2.2TB populates one side of the package.




A generalized estimate about how much data you can hold on different capacity size drives resides on the other.




The internal packaging was put together well. The drive is suspended in a thin plastic suspension that allows the package to flex and absorb vibration during shipping.




With the included accessories laid you we see the paper manuals, invitation to Hitachi's backup program and the system screws.
