Nice Drive, fair price, no warranty???? 05/01/2014
1 TB storage, 2.5" size - Nice and small, lightweight, yet still 7200 RPM and 6 Gigabit throughput. SATA for today's controllers. Small enough to easily fit into my USB to SATA case for use as a backup hard drive.
No mention of warranty as far as I can see, not even on the manufacturer's website. That's unusual. I would have preferred a clear statement of warranty period but I needed a small, cheap 1 TB 2.5" drive right away so I went ahead and took the risk and bought this drive, hoping that it will last at least a year or two. Crossed fingers.
After formatting the drive NTFS, I stuck this drive into a USB to SATA enclosure to use as a USB backup drive for my PC's. Works nicely with throughput at a reasonable speed, considering I was running USB 2.0. Works well for what I needed it for. I would consider using one of these in my laptop PC. I would recommend this drive to a friend with a clear statement that the warranty period is unspecified and therefore there is no assurance of being able to RMA this drive to it's manufacturer. If you want or need a clear statement of the warranty period and assurance of an RMA, then this is NOT the drive for you. Spend more and buy a black drive. Oddly enough, HGST appears to be a subsidiary of WD according to the HGST wesbsite. See link provided by Newegg.
