The Disk is a bit slow, but its what you can expect from a 5400 RPM HDD. I use it to store my games library, while my OS is on a smaller NVME M.2 SSD. Boot times for the games are adequate, and there is plenty of disk space available in 4TB. If you need a large storage drive soon, I would recommend this. However, the price of SSDs and HDDs have been falling for years by a significant margin - if you can wait, I would. Two years ago the price was the same for half the storage, and I expect this trend to continue.
