3 out of 5 eggs First Drive Failed, Second is Fine for now 09/21/2012

This review is from: Hitachi GST Deskstar H3IK30003272SW (0S03208) 3TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros:

*High drive space
*Comes with GPT software for Windows XP
*Easy to install

Cons:

New Drive Failed before 3 months were up while an old 2006 HDD worked perfectly fine. Absolutely destroyed my system due to dual booting and symbolic links for OS things such as temporary files pointing to the secondary drive. Required considerable time fixing my boot, removing windows 7 boot record, etc. Ended up copying files and clean installing. I suggest anyone who buys this drive to wait a while before moving critical system components onto it lest they suffer the same headaches I did.

Other Thoughts:

Replacement RMA policy is a bit absurd based on the packaging requirements as I received the bare bones HDD with just 2 plastic air bags and cheap plastic holders. For sending it back they want foam packaging and do not accept anything one can realistically buy at a shipping center or office supply store near my location. Make sure to keep your original packaging!
