About a year and a half ago I bought an HGST 7K4 at an NCIX sale for about $170CDN. It was a risky thing to do, I was adding it to a RAW photo and HD video editing system, and WD Caviar Black drives were the performance standard, but I was getting twice the storage for less money so I went for it. The 7K4 turned out to be faster than the WD Black 2tb it was sitting beside and it's been bulletproof reliability wise. Now I want another and my only option is the WD Black 4tb which is more expensive (twice as much) and according to this article on storage review...

...is not as fast. Bummer! It seems that WD has buried the 7K4.
I am wondering if anyone can confirm that the HGST Tuoro Desk 4tb has a 7K4 inside of it. If so, it would be a good deal.
Thanks in advance.
