Recently, NewEgg had a fantastic price on this Seagate STCA4000100 4TB USB 3.0 external hard drive.  It was at that time I decided to purchase three of these to move to a more traditional NAS setup, either with a Drobo style NAS or a home built server based design.  I'll have more on the home built variety in a future article, but for now I wanted to show everyone the method to cracking this guy open and some test results on the drive itself, which in most cases is a 5900 RPM drive, unless you were one of the ones that ended up with a 7200 rpm model.  This whole process actually takes less than five minutes and should not void the warranty.
