5 out of 5 eggsbest drive ever.

Pros: best 2TB I have ever had, it has been oh most 5 years and it is now starting to make noise rattling sounds.

Cons: none has lasted a very long time.

Other Thoughts: i'll be getting another one if i can.

5 out of 5 eggsSpacious and Dependable

Pros: Reliable
Quiet
Spacious
Quick

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought two of these for two different computers well over a year ago. Neither drive has given me any problem in that time. They sometimes take a little while to fire up once they go into their hibernation mode, but once they're seeking, they're quick. I can't hear them over my fans, so that's all I need there. For the price, 2TB of storage is great. I'm pretty sure there's newer models out now, so I won't be buying this drive again, but I will stick with the brand.

2 out of 5 eggsFailed after 2 years and 11.5 months

Pros: Fast

Cons: I bought four of these elsewhere. They saw intermittent use in a RAID5 array. Two weeks prior to the warranty expiration, one of four drives failed due to bad sectors. The drives saw intermittent use only, and were in a good enclosure with good cooling (OWC Qx2 RAID).

Other Thoughts: My data is preserved due to RAID5, and I am able to return the drive for warranty replacement. I count myself lucky, particularly as the backup of this array failed due to a problem with the Habey DS540 enclosure used.

1 out of 5 eggsUnsatisfactory long-term performance

Pros: *Seems* to operate well under nominal conditions

Cons: Out of 20 or so drives used over 3 years, about a 40% failure rate in that time frame. Concurrently bought Samsung and WD models are doing fine.

Other Thoughts: It's not a really scientific analysis, but HGST is on our do-not-buy list until they improve their engineering.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked for six months

Pros: Fast, quiet, cheap (at the time)

Cons: Failed with corrupt sectors after six months - also in an area of the disk I hadn't previously used so who knows if it was there all the time? I did run a surface test when the drive was new. RMA'd and have my fingers crossed.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid performers

Pros: I've had these installed for 9 months as a software RAID1 on my basement server. I get 119MB/s writes and 126MB/s reads. drives run relatively cool (~40C) as well.

Cons: no cons so far. we'll see if they fail catastrophically or fade with unrecoverable errors...

Other Thoughts: I keep these drives powered 24/7. after 9 months they have only been power-cycled 9 times...

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good

Pros: Fast, reasonably cool running, quiet, Sata 3Gbs., good capacity for price.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My drive has been running just fine for two months now. I hope I won't have to RMA it anytime soon as Hitachi's packing requirements for RMA are difficult to meet. Keep this in mind.

1 out of 5 eggsGARBAGE you've been warned!!!

Pros: NONE

Cons: I went to throw a brand new packaged drive into my computer today and it would not boot. The drive is dead as a doornail. I unfortunately bought the drive 4/6/2011 and now it is 5/5/2011 so of course it is out of Neweggs 30 day RMA so I have to deal with Hatachi direct.

Other Thoughts: Check ANY drive you receive the day you get it to make sure it works.

5 out of 5 eggsBest HDs EVER!!!

Pros: I purchased 10 retail boxed versions of these HDs back in November 2009; configured in a RAID6 array for 16TB of storage. I added 3 more of the bare drive versions (being reviewed) 13 months later (December 2010). I haven't had ONE drive go bad after 24/7 operation for 18 months! Performance: 300+MB/s (that's megaBYTEs) sustained file transfers from one partition to another on the same RADI6 array...

Cons: Absolutely none to mention! ;o)

Other Thoughts: Controller: HighPoint RocketRAID 4321 PCI-Express x8 SATA / SAS + BBU-04 Battery Backup
Enclosure: PC-Pitstop 15-bay SAS Expander Enclosure w/4-meter SAS Cable
Server: Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case; Tyan Tempest i5000XL; Dual Xeon X5355 2.66Ghz Quad-Core; 10GB DDR2; 4x 1TB HDs in RAID5 Array

25+ years experience assembling/troubleshooting PCs and other types of computers...

1 out of 5 eggsFind another 2TB drive

Pros: Can't beat 2TB of space...when they work.

Cons: I bought 4 of these drives with the intent to setup a small RAID 5 NAS at home. One of the drives arrived DOA, wouldn't even spin up. I RMA'd that drive, and by the time Hitachi had a replacement to me, I've had a second drive fail. Same issue, doesn't want to spin up. I'm now a bit concerned about using these in a RAID if they're failing at this rate. I could end up with multiple failures before a rebuild could complete. To date, I have not been able to setup my 4-disk RAID due to drive failures and I bought these almost 2 months ago.
