I would have to agree ^^ , that way you would have four times the expectancy of 4-drives to 1.

If you have the space to store those four drives, then yes. But 1TB in a single drive is logical for those who need lots of capacity while saving physical space.

Well, a lot of cases nowadays have quite a lot of ports for HDDs and such. Mine has 6 so I couldn't be bothered.

I would like the 1TB one if I had the money. Hard drives these days are far more reliable than they were even two or three years ago. Most of the problems these days are from random manufacturing errors, but the hardware itself is actually quite reliable. The Hitachi drive is supposed to be really fast too, especially fast for a drive of that capacity.

Anyways, everyone has their own preferences.

dont get me wrong , i would have 2 of them in raid 1 as then there is little to no chance of both drives failing at once and when one does replace it . i just wouldnt like the ide of hacing all my data on one drive and would much rather have it on 4 different drives meaning less chance of loosing it all .
also i am not saying the 1tb one is more prone to fail than other maakes and yeah the drive does actually look reasonable speedy for a 1tb
