    Just received a set of 4TB WD My Book Essentials on Tuesday.
    For anyone expecting them to contain WD designed/built drives you will be sorely disappointed.
    Inside are 4TB 5400RPM Hitachi drives :/

    Well, at least their external drives are still €40 less expensive than a bare 4TB drive in Germany :)

    850/8 = 106 per gb

    62.5/4 = 62.5 per gb
