    I am looking for multiple 4 TB hard drives that have the performance of the WD Black series but also with business level longevity for a Work/Business/Gaming/Video&Audio editing computer that will be run 24/7.
    SPECS: Ryzen 7 3800X | 48GB RAM | 11TB of data.

    During my research so far it seems the drives I need to look at are 4 TB Enterprise level drives -not the NAS style but the others: Gold, Ultrastar, Exos, however it seems WD Gold, Ultrastar line are more prone to clicking and hard drive failures before the mfr -maybe it just one drive model across manufactures.

    Would this one be better option?

    Isn't this the same drive -most likely a renewed/refurbished state:
