5 out of 5 eggsGreat so far

Pros: Quiet, I can't hear it at all. It runs cool, and is faster than the stock drive from my laptop. Plenty of space for me, I have a USB storage for more room and backups.

Cons: none yet, I've had it for 3 months.

Other Thoughts: Great price for what seems to be a solid laptop hard drive.

5 out of 5 eggsGood buy

Pros: Inexpensive.

Cons: don't see any yet. Though rated at 5400RPM, most notebooks arent designed for gaming or heavy processing anyway.

Other Thoughts: A definite "quick-fix" drive. Decent enought to install in mini-pcs. (as long as they're not media centers)

3 out of 5 eggsTo DEF01

Pros: To DEF01, In all fairness you are saying that you lost your reputation due to hitachi's reliability and you say "my friend (who I recommended Hitachi) his 500GB 2.5 SATA died close to a year and lost all his work!" Yes as a tech if thats what you recommended he keep his work solely on, Id say you were way off in the first place, Never trust a disk with your data! end of story, back it up or lose it. Redundant copies of ANYTHING worth having. Disks fail all of the time. Check out google's recent study of hard disk usage and failure.

Cons: I have had too much bad luck with hitachi travelstar models in the past, Its true. But I would never pump up any brand to a customer to the point where Id lose reputation over its failure lol.

1 out of 5 eggsNOT RELIABLE!!

Pros: Fast when working, easy to install and configure. No brainer there.

Cons: They are not what they used to be!! Lately Hitachi laptop drives from 250GB to 500GB have been having problems working!! My 250GB 7200 RPM 2.5 SATA I bought from another store died after 1 month, my friend (who I recommended Hitachi) his 500GB 2.5 SATA died close to a year and lost all his work! and just recently fixed a macbook (2007 generation) and guess what I pulled? THAT'S RIGHT HITACHI!!! I AM SICK OF THESE DRIVES!!!! THEY ARE GARBAGE!!!!!

Other Thoughts: As a systems tech and one who constant replaces hardrives on systems, I used to swear by HITACHI, but they costed me my reputation because I used to recommend these drives!! BUT NO MORE WITH THESE CLOWNS!!!!!

Yes, Seagates and Western Digital drives do go bad! But not at HITACHI'S RATE!!!!! You might as well have a heart attack now if you have important data on a HITACHI drive.

I suggest anyone that has very important data to stay away from these drives!! NO BUTS!! IF'S OR ANDS!! I wouldn't even touch these if given for free!

If you don't believe how bad HITACHI is now, just look at the ratings for other products including external hardrives!

That should tell you something other than my experiences.
