The Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 is the world’s first and only 7200 RPM hard drive rated at 2.0 million hours MTBF. The Ultrastar 7K3000 represents the fifth-generation Hitachi 5-platter mechanical design, first introduced in 2004, and has been field proven by top server and storage OEMs as well as leading Internet giants. When the highest quality and reliability are a top requirement, customer field data proves that the Ultrastar 7K3000 delivers by reducing downtime, eliminating service calls and keeping TCO to a minimum.
Engineered for the highest reliability, the Ultrastar 7K3000 is not only put through grueling design tests during development but must also pass stringent ongoing reliability testing during manufacturing. Across the entire Ultrastar family, world-class quality control, combined with scientific root-cause analysis and multi-faceted corrective actions, ensure that Hitachi GST remains the recognized leader in quality and reliability for enterprise-class hard drives.
Industry-leading Reliability Beginning with superior material and components, and ending with rigorous ongoing testing, the Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 hard drive offers industry leading reliability with 2.0 million hours MTBF rating, making it an ideal choice for the business and enterprise requiring high data security and integrity.
Up to 3 terabytes of capacity Hitachi leads the way in delivering colossal, up to 3 TB of add-on storage on a single drive for your PC or Mac.
6Gb/s SATA and 6Gb/s SAS models for configuration flexibility The Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 is the first Hitachi 7200 RPM drive available in both 6Gb/s SATA and 6Gb/s SAS interfaces and also available in two encryption options. The Ultrastar 7K3000 SATA model integrates easily with legacy SATA and Fibre Channel to SATA environments. The Ultrastar 7K3000 SATA model is available with a bulk data encryption (BDE) option. When enabled, both of these hardware-based implementations encrypt all data on the drive using a private security key as it is written to the disk, and then decrypt it with the key as it is retrieved, giving users an extreme level of data protection. These security options not only protect sensitive data but also reduce the time and effort involved in re-deploying hard drives since without the key, the data is unrecoverable.
Combining 7200 RPM performance and granular power control Operating at 7200 RPM, the Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 offers better overall performance than slower RPM capacity-oriented drives, and does so at impressively low power consumption rates. The Ultrastar 7K3000 can help data centers achieve lower AC power and HVAC requirements. With five Advanced Power Management modes, the Ultrastar 7K3000 achieves a 59% reduction in watts during low RPM idle mode, and uses less than 1W during standby/sleep modes, freeing up precious headroom for growing enterprise needs.
Innovating for a more sustainable environment The Ultrastar 7K3000 demonstrates Hitachi ecological leadership with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation. Both of these features helped qualify the drive for the Hitachi EcoTrac classification, which identifies products that minimize environmental impact in the areas of product design, manufacturing, operation and disposal.

This review is from: Hitachi GST Ultrastar 7K3000 HUS723030ALS640(0B26311) 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SAS 6Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive Bare Drive
Pros: Relatively reliable. We bought for a 2-8 drive NAS RAID 10 for a total of 16 drives. Of course they are not as fast as our 15K RPM SAS drives but equally reliable. Been running trouble free with 24/7 high access rate for over a year now.
Cons: One DOA out of 16. It was unnerving for brand new drives with 2 million hour MTBF, and I am afraid to ever put in refurb drives to production RAID arrays, but the replacement doesn't indicate refurb and worked fine for over a year.
