I don't give models that fail on me a second chance. Anything that isn't designed to be repaired needs to work at least until the warranty expires. There aren't that many moving parts in these drives and any flaws in soldering or connectors shouldn't be dismissed as anomalous as they are built in large part by machines.

What I can't excuse is the people that give something a bad review because they can't make it work due to ignorance or the inability of the vendor to deliver the appropriate product.

Unfortunately, machines are as perfect as the humans who made them.  Every now and then there is a bad batch.  Most of the time this is caught before the product hit the shelfs, but sometime is after the fact.  “stuff” happens.  Unlike popular belief, there are plenty DOA drives sitting on store shelves right now.

Would this 4TB Seagate drive be fine for an HR34? (The drive inside is actually a ST4000DM000, which is a 5900 RPM, SATA 6Gb/s, 64MB cache) I would take it out and use it in my Rosewill enclosure. I am currently using a 3TB 7200 RPM Seagate drive inside that Rosewill enclosure, so just wondering if this 5900 RPM drive would cause any issues or will be different in any way?

 

And is it ok to have 2 different external drives associated with one HR34? If I keep swap these 2 drives inside my Rosewill enclosure back and fourth to view certain shows? Would there be any issues?

You're sure that's a SATA drive in that thing?  It has USB plastered all over the link you posted.  You can swap externals back and forth without any problems.

I have one of those Seagates on my Xbox One, it's not eSATA so it won't work.

If the Rosewill enclosure is this one, it does have an esata connector:

If the 4TB Seagate drive will work in the Rosewill enclosure, the 5900 (are you sure its not 5400?) should work fine when connected to your HR34.  I have a couple of Thermaltake enclosures that won't recognize a 4TB drive.

All, “common” hard rives have a SATA interface.

He is referring to removing the SATA drive to put it in a Rosewell enclosure that has supposedly e-SATA.  I don’t se nothing wrong with this….

As long as the enclosure supports 4TB, sure.   Not everything that supports 3TB will support 4TB and above.
