What is up with this? I didn't even know there were any 4TB WD Drives besides the RE (which IIRC is a good drive right and also like 500 bucks..)

Most likely two 2TB drives raided together. They only have the RE 4TB, but then again, since WD does own Hitachi now, it could be a Hitachi drive in their enclosure.

Ohh yikes, thats a scary thought. So I'm assuming NewEgg just has an incorrect picture up then then? As that is clearly a picture of a one drive enclosure.

What kind of quality are they? I really don't need 4TB, but I'm at a crossroads with what to get. I need 3TB, but it seems like the Seagates are loud, the WDs have a higher failure rate (unless they are Red drives), and I don't know much about Hitachi.
