I bought 1 RED 4TB Internal HDD, but after about 1 year usage it had problem with my system (not recognisable), then I returned to my local store where I bought it. They agreed to replaced it with the new one since it still under warranty.
Then about 6 months later, this one suddenly turned bad, read/write speed is extremely low. (under 500KB/sec or such). Once again, I returned it to my local store and got another replacement.
Now my question is:
Is it possible if I want to change another Model HDD (like Black or maybe another Brand for my system? Since I’d not take another risk with this failure product or unlucky streak (as they so called).
This is my latest test with this new drive, with bad sector warning. I’m so worry.
