2 out of 5 eggsDOA and I like Hitachi drives

Pros: I like Hitachi drives but something is wrong with these 400GB ones.

Cons: Plugged it in and it made horrible sounds. Dead on arrival. I'm pretty sure I will have to pay shipping it back so it's not worth the risk.

Other Thoughts: Buy a different Hitachi drive.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time

Pros: Great price / size ratio

Cons: plugged into existing RAID NAS Server with 3xSeagate 400gb drives. powered system on and i heard a audible pop and then smoke from the drive bay. I quickly yanked out the power to the chassis and had the sinking sensation a $$ part just cost me $$$$$

Other Thoughts: luckily he system booted once the drive was removed and I purchased a drive from the local b***buy (sorry Newegg, it was a emergency) and the system seems to be running normally. Newegg was great as usual with the RMA

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: It was cheap

Cons: Bought 4 and have had 2 die in less than a year. My drives still have 2 years of warranty but show that they are from the UK. Hitachi of course won't let me rma them now. NEVER AGAIN HITACHI!

2 out of 5 eggsNot happy the first go around

Pros: Price and size got me.

Cons: Having BOTH the drives come in DOA was not what I had expected. Manufacture date was Jan 2007 also, so this indicated the drives were sitting around for a while.

Other Thoughts: I'm giving Hitachi another chance. If these have any problems it's refund time. Also, I was not happy in paying to ship DOA equipment back.

1 out of 5 eggsS L O W D R I V E

Pros: 400GB at a good price. Quality Name, have used before. No jumpers to confuse.

Cons: Half the speed of the Sam song 400 GB I put in at the same time. Same 16MB memory, same 7500RPM, same 400GB, but 1/2 the speed for some reason. Running at SATA 1 speeds instead of SATA 3? Big and noticable difference. Past the 1 month Newegg return so it may just be a hundered dollar paperweight, or a chewtoy for my 19 mo old. Will buy something else.

Other Thoughts: I've used Deskstar drives before and worked them hard with video and audio editing. Don't know why this one is so slow. Hopefully just a bad one and not all are like this...
