4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap and big space for PATA interface, good for upgrading the old computer.

Cons: Not all motherboards can recognize all the time. My ASUS motherboard has no problem to use it all the time. But HP D530 cannot. Maybe it is just motherboard issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Price....especially for an IDE @ 500GB

Cons: Doesn't work

Other Thoughts: Hard drives are sensitive, sometimes they just don't work. If my replacement doesn't work as well, I will not buy Hitachi again.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA Failure Right Out of the Box

Pros: It is a good value!

Cons: Hard Drive failure right out of the box. Call Hitachi and spoke to a lady who was their technical support person that had limited knowledge to engaged into a more meaningful technical discussion.

Other Thoughts: Will try to reorder.

5 out of 5 eggsChurch mouse quite

Pros: Easy to install.
Quite and cool.
Price point.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Wanted a drive to install Windows 7 on an older pc. It installed and formatted as expected. Windows 7 installed as expected. System booted as expected. This drive is really quite. Had look at the drive light on the front of my pc to make sure the drive was being read.

If you need a new IDE drive, I highly recommend this drive.

4 out of 5 eggsQuiet. Not too warm.

Pros: Bought this drive to replace the drive inside a Lacie Quadra firewire drive enclosure. The previous drive was 3-4 years old and had been abused (it was a scratch disk for video encoding/editing etc - basically it'd been in use constantly...). This drive is getting a similar beating and so far I'm happy. I was looking for a cool, quiet drive - absolute performance wasn't so important to me. Nevertheless the drive shuts down and spins up quickly, random seeks feel quick.

Cons: Continuous throughput/video streaming gets choppy/freezes if you try to perform another operation on the drive (such as writing a file at the same time as trying to play one back). Not sure if this is the controller on the case or if it's just a limitation of the IDE interface (other drives are SATA inside Firewire 400 cases).

5 out of 5 eggsGood Solid Drive

Pros: Used for an external IDE enclosure I had laying around from a while ago. Formatted NTFS in about 15 seconds with Western Digital Data Lifeguard Tools. Runs Cool in Ext Enclosure. Good Solid Drive.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Could Be a little Cheaper, It is IDE.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems solid so far.

Pros: Handles the playing of video very well compared to the IDE ATA-100 Seagates I own, which have been installed in this same computer. With the Seagates, even though I have always regarded them as high quality, they cause severe chop in the videos as the videos are playing, and even with 16mb cache and 7200 rpm. Experience with other Hard Drives that had interface speeds at 133 mb's has shown simular results and better performance by far! The other test is simply by going online which makes the chopping or studdering, if you will, of the video much more severe. With these CinemaStar drives however, they are rock steady under all conditions and videos continuously play as smooth as silk, which shows me they can really make a difference in handling read/write functions. The drives do seem to run cool and to me this is a plus for better longevity I believe. I might add, everything else installed on this computer is the same, same antivirus software, same programs ect.

Cons: I had to do a restart once for a program I loaded and as the computer was booting it appeared to have restarted again, this could have been anything as the drive has worked well so far without glitches.
