5 out of 5 eggsGood budget HDD

Pros: Low price. Been working without any problems. Good HDD if you don't need large capacities.

Cons: None, really. Would be nice to have a larger cache, but that would have increased the price.

Other Thoughts: Built my aunt's computer using one of these, and I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a small HDD.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Drive is fast and responsive, and runs relatively cool compared to the 5 year old [Other Popular Brand] it's replacing.

Cons: Unfortunately, unlike the other two Hitachi drives that occupy my tower, this little guy runs very loud, even on dampening rubber support grommets.

Other Thoughts: A very nicely priced drive for the performance it offers. Using it as my primary boot drive, holding nothing but OS and application data, it's far larger than I'm likely to ever use. Stepping up from a 40GB 5400 RPM SATA I drive, the increase in performance was noticeable immediately upon boot. Despite being somewhat noisy, it's definitely a worthwhile investment for anyone needing a smaller, speedy little drive.

4 out of 5 eggsSlightly disappointed

Pros: Price.

Cons: I chose this because of previous experience with a Hitachi drive(which was a SATA 150 that I bought here at Newegg back in 2005.) My previous Hitachi served me very well, but this drive vibrates considerably more then my previous Hitachi drive. I could hear & "feel" the vibration when close to my PC.

Other Thoughts: It seems that the quality of hard drives is not as good as they used to be. This may very well be a good reliable drive for most people.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable

Pros: Good, reliable harddrive. I've been using two for 10 months now.

Cons: Doesn't come with any manuals or SATA cables (very important to know, I had to make another order after the fact when I discovered there weren't any SATA cables included).
