5 out of 5 eggsStill works 4 years later

Pros: It has been a steady performer for 4+ years, but it's mounted right next to the case inlet fan, so it's at 39 degrees C at idle. Keep your drives cool, and they will last a lot longer!

Price --> 1 TB for $65... was inexpensive at the time. Still a good deal today :)

Cons: Average 89 mb/sec on HD Tune 5.5 - slower than many HD drives on the market today.

Other Thoughts: Bought from Newegg in June 2009... drive is still working today! I plan on switching to a SSD and relegate this to a backup drive.

1 out of 5 eggsdied shortly after warranty

Pros: pretty fast and healthy amount of storage also seemed like it had a decent warranty

Cons: died shortly after warranty, noisy as hell, seemed like it needed to work harder and more often than the 320gb I had previous

1 out of 5 eggsdied afte 3 years and 2 months

Pros: cheap, when it's working, the performance is ok.

Cons: Got "Uncorrectable Sector Count" error and it's takes a long time to open the drive and freeze the OS, then it died after 3 years and 2 months use. Just out of warranty. Maybe only WD is more reliable these days.

1 out of 5 eggsdied after 3 years 2 months

Pros: performance is good when it's working.

Cons: Got SMART error of reallocated sectors count, the directory list takes a long time and hard drive start clicking sound. I don't have a chance to save the data. WD is probably is the only choice for now.

1 out of 5 eggsLast 3 years

Pros: Last 3 years, I'm lucky, that could be shorter!

Cons: As a second drive for stocking (with 3 others from other brand) this one start little clicking (cloc) each time it comes out from idle. The PCB has bad connection when simply touching the cable so the HD restart and freeze the system for couple of seconds. I had to take it out from PC and connect it as an external to backup. I expect a life longer than 3 years for a HD not used as a disk system. Sorry, no more Hitachi for me, ever on discount. This one will go direct to the bin. This HD was from an external drive (LaCie Design by F.A. Porsche) bought in 2008.

Other Thoughts: More noisy as an external drive than Seagate, WD or Samsung
