hd tune seq start at 267megabyts and stays for the first 10tb above 200. so using this huge drive is good for 4k video editing. in a well noise cancelling case (FRACTLE R5 in my case) is whisper quite, also because this drive was installed in my case and not in a nas i disabled the "powerchoice" option that parks the heads every couple min (and preventing that "click and crunch" sound) using seachest tools program.
