4 out of 5 eggsFunny behavior

Pros: Great drive, no problems, fast.

Cons: Often times when the drive is powered up but idle (unmounted even) the drive will make a lot of noise as if it's seeking all over the place or defragmenting...

1 out of 5 eggsDrive Errors

Pros: Good price at the time. Comes with SATA cable.

Cons: Read errors began occurring after about a year. The drive also causes the system to crash when it goes into sleep/power saving mode and I hear a single loud click noise from the drive when it happens. I can't even boot up since the drive would no longer be recognized and I would have to plug the SATA cable into a different port every time that happens. Even when going into sleep mode properly, it takes forever to wake up.

Manufacturer Response:

I'm sorry to read of the issue you are having with our drive. Please contact the
Technical Support Center if you would like to further troubleshoot this issue. Thank you.

3 out of 5 eggsHalf life < 6 months?

Pros: 2 TB Storage
Fast
Easy setup
Great warranty and replacement

Cons: THEY DIE!!! I bought two of these, set up RAID to mirror them. The #1 died after 4.5 months and was quickly replaced by #3 (#2 was still chugging along, keeping my data safe).
#3 then died then died 10 months later. During the 3 weeks when I was without the second drive, #2 died and I lost all my data.

Other Thoughts: I bought these knowing that the aptly nicknamed "Death Stars" are high-risk drives that are good bargains for the price. Thought I was mostly safe using mirrored RAID. I still think this okay to use but you better have stuff triply backed up, and at that point, you don't save any money when you have to buy so many of these drives. The warranty and replacement is great, but so far I have had drives die at 4.5 months, 10 months, and 15 month timepoints, which really speaks terribly to using them for any time at all past the warranty expiration.

5 out of 5 eggsMinor bump in the road

Pros: Reliable
durable
2TB great for backups for all my computers

Cons: Not really a con, but I did have a scare the other day, after 18 months of use. I put it on my backup computer that I am turning into a server. After a scarey 30min install the AHCI BIOS locked up on reboot to error 23. I switched ports and still error 23. I called Hitachi for replacement thinking it finally went out on me.

Tech support told me to try USB mode and it found it just fine. After some tweaking and not having it work I decided to put it back in USB mode and use diskpart to reset the drive and violla! works like a champ once again.

Other Thoughts: I have this thing in my ThermalTake BlacX docking station and it get's switched out all the time and carried around to everyone's house for backups and what not. It's been dropped a few times and still runs strong.


For those wanting to know how to reset a drive just run diskpart.

Hit the windows start button and diskpart and select diskpart.exe A DOS type window will pop-up.

Then type list disk and locate your disk and take note of the number on the far left column.

Type select disk 1 (replace the number 1, with the drive # of your disk that was listed on the above step.

Type clean and in less than a second it should finish. It may take longer for you as my drive was empty.

I then plugged it into my SATA port and it cleared the BIOS bootup check and is working wonderfully once again.

also, ignore bad posts on all 1TB or bigger. Everyone's having issues and you just buy the one with the longest warranty. It seems hit or miss and so far I have been lucky for

5 out of 5 eggsNo DOAs!

Pros: Inexpensive, cheap, fast, retail packaging

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: All five passed stress test with flying colors. I believe the retail packaging led to a better in-transit experience for the drives.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good...

Pros: I'm a freelance photographer and desktop support rep at a major fortune 500 company...I did a ton of research as well as speaking with my server team about which drives to buy. While researching, I discovered that all brands / drives have a certain amount of failure rate or have the possibility of being DOA. It's just the way it goes, no matter what brand you're looking at. Luckily for me, this wasn't the case with these drives. I ordered two of them, the drives were in original boxes (Which was nice to see) and not loose with just a static bag. NewEgg packaged it well on top of that and it arrived as promised in three days. I slid the drives in my Drobo and configured with no issues. I've seen reviews that they are noisy...but I don't find them to be noisy at all. Quite the opposite, they're quiet, fast, and seem to run cool so far. I'm hoping for longevity...that will be the true test, but so far they're great and I'm quite pleased with them.

Cons: None so far...if I had to be nitpicky, the $20 mail-rebate (Per drive) was nice in terms of cost savings, but mail-in's are always a bit of a pain...instant rebate would have been easier, but really not that big of a deal.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend these drives so far. NewEgg executed the transaction perfectly and the drives are an incredible value. After rebates...I will have paid $240 for 4 Terabytes of storage. How can you beat that? Pretty amazing...assuming they last. Time will tell...so far, so good.
