Pros:

Used it as a secondary drive in my PC. Installed fine, ran quiet and cool. Low power draw.

Cons:

After about 2 years of use, I noticed that some files were getting corrupted and Windows Backups were not completing successfully. There were no SMART errors during startup. Upon running the Drive tool from HGST, I started getting many errors. Ran chkdsk over 24 hours and a few of the files were fixed. Thankfully, the drive was under 3 year warranty and I just got a replacement. Return shipping was very S-L-O-W - took over 10 days for the drive to reach me in continental US.

Other Thoughts:

The primary (boot) drive on the same PC is a 10-years old 7200 RPM drive that is still running fine. I also have a 7-year old Hitachi 250 GB PATA drive that is working fine. I thought the slower RPM of this Hitachi drive and lower running temp would make it last longer - NOT.

Newegg shows this drive as being Out of Stock so I am not sure if Hitachi has stopped selling it. The replacement drive has a Jan-2013 on the label so hopefully I got a new drive. I checked the warranty using the Serial No. of the new drive and it expires in 12 months. It appears that Hitachi is no longer confident of a 3-Year warranty.
