5 out of 5 eggsIt's alright

Pros: I've have this about 3-4 years. Haven't had any problems. Came loaded on an Acer i got for Christmas and is now in my custom built PC running Vista. Soon as I get $70-80 for a big hard drive, this is it. Only 50GB left and I don't really have much things on it that I know of.

Computer it's in:
PSU - Thermaltake W0106RU 700W
Processor - AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0GHz
MOBO - ASRock A780GXE/128M AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G ATX AMD Motherboard
VC - EVGA 896-P3-1267-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Edition
SC - Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio
RAM - 8G G-Skill DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Case - SIGMA ORCA ORCA-WB Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Cons: This is 1 of the 2 things I never upgraded. IDK why, just used to the fact it has worked perfectly fine for me. 160GB doesn't go to far nowadays it seems.

Other Thoughts: Works well, would prefer a Western Digital but this is good for now.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked good until it died.

Cons: Only lasted 6 months.

Other Thoughts: I understand things like this happen. So I was happy that Hitachi exchanged it pretty quickly.

5 out of 5 eggsLong Term Update

Pros: Great Drives. I have had 4 of these units running RAID 0+1 with no issues on an Nvidia 590 board with heavy use over 18 months. They are quiet, (with out the Hitachi optimizer), and run cool. I am running Vista Ultimate 64 and there was no issue loading the OS on the RAID array. It gives me a 5.9 Vista Rating on Drives.

Cons: The technology on these is a bit dated, with only 8 MB cache. Some of the newer and larger drives are as fast in data transfer without RAID 0.

Other Thoughts: Purchased these units from the Egg, and they have served me well. At the present time, for the money, you cannot go wrong with these Hitachi drives.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap

Pros: Costs as much as a 80GB HD

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I'm not exactly sure how a hd can be either a 1 or a 5. I bought this hd because it was as expensive as a 80GB hd when I was building a light gaming pc. I'm just glad it didn't make a scratching noise when I started it up.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quick, works well. It's a hard drive... it either works or it doesn't.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've used hard drives from a slew of other companies... they're all about the same.
