451s is the same as 411s but it has some different components and different firmware.


Take your time and read this forum.
I´m sure you will soon find out, there is a big difference between these drives… :wink:

Search button at top of page is our friend. Use it.

BTW, the main difference in hardware is PUH. :slight_smile:


The 451 has a reputation for being the ‘better’ drive due to the newer PUH.



i understand the 451s is better as it is newer, but what about performances and realibility comparing to the 411s??


If I had to choose between the 411S and the 451S, I’d pick the 451S in a heartbeat. It’s a better drive overall, methinks.
