4 out of 5 eggsNot spectacular

Pros: Has lasted longer than I expected. It's sturdy and reliable. I've done some real funky formatting on this thing and it's never had a problem.

Cons: Moves a bit slower than my other HDD with the same specs. *shrugs*

Other Thoughts: I recommend grabbing this while it's still available.

5 out of 5 eggsquiet and reliable

Pros: This is the second deskstar I have installed in a system and I love their performance. I look at my HDD LED to see if it is running because it is difficult to hear it running.

Cons: None to speak of.

Other Thoughts: Newegg is very reliable.

5 out of 5 eggsHitachi Deskstar T7K250

Pros: Been running 4 of these drives set up in a Raid Array (striped)
for over 3 yrs now, quiet, cool, & reliable, + the cost has really come down, since my purchase, when this model was 1st. released. I highly recommend Hitachi HDDs, high quality, quiet, cool running, relieable, & low cost...
I used to be a WD diehard but these drives have turned me around 180*...
I can't say enough about them, you just have to make the decision to switch, it's that simple. Just check the web for reviews before selecting a model, that goes for any major computer part.

Cons: None of the 4 drives running 24-7 on a server platform have had any problems what so ever...
What more can someone ask??
Hitachi Product support is second to none. Disc Tools are readily available for download to anyone. Drives are easily configured via software instead of the small jumpers we used to have to work with.

Other Thoughts: I was a WD diehard, as I said, but decided to give Hitachi a try. I had many years of great luck using there optical drives.
I made the choice and checked many reviews before building this system, all were 100%+ positive, one of which was Anantech if memory serves me correctly. Hitachi has been a leading innovater in HDD technology since it's inception. More leading brand Laptop Computers have been sold with Hitachi HDDs installed in them than any other HDD made. I think that alone gives them bragging rights!!!
These drives are not made in China as most are today but come from Malaysia & the Philippines. Buy just one and you'll be spoiled for life!!!
I was after many yrs of spending big $$ on WD only to be passed on to the customer...
These are by far the quietest drives I have ever had the pleasure of owning or working with. Plus if buying in small quanities you get one of the best online suppliers around, Newegg where price, & customer service are job one!!!

5 out of 5 eggsDeskstart 160 SATA - Great

Pros: Very quiet after setting the Acoustic Management. Good suport and software from Hitachi's website. Reliable low cost quiet drive with good performance. SATA and Legacy power connectors.

Cons: The data rate must be switched to or from 1.5 to 3.0 gb/s via software. If your drive is set to 3.0 and your computer only supports 1.5, there is no way to change it without using a different computer.

Other Thoughts: After setting the Acoustic management to quiet mode, this is one of the quietest drives I've heard. Great for a bedroom PC or anywhere quietness is desired. The software used to configure this drive is better than other manufacturers I've used.

3 out of 5 eggsHitachi Customer Service

Pros: Capacity/price is great. Plug and play. Great customer service at hitachi. No trouble getting through, answered all my questions patiently and clearly.

Cons: Not that quiet. This thing does not have jumpers and requires a software download from hitachi in order to enable 3.0 GB/sec. You have to boot up with the Features Tool from hitachi. Annoying and not that simple. You are buying a SATA II hdd, but receive a SATA I hdd.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat drive, quiet and fast

Pros: pretty good drive, very quiet, fast speeds, good benchmarks, no failures EVER with Seagate. Maybe they can fix whats wrong with maxtor since they bought them, had about 7 bad maxtor drives but SEAGATE IS GREAT.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I'd like to see a proper sata2 cable ship with these drives rather than the standard sata150. It caps it at 150. With the OKGEAR sata2 cables I benchmarked up to 240+ on my system.
