The HITACHI Deskstar ATA 133 160GB hard drive strikes the perfect balance between reliability and performance. The 133MB/s interface, 7200 RPM and 8 MB cache ensure quick data transfers, better throughput, faster system boot-up and screen refreshes. This gives you the speed, reliability and capacity you need for ATA-RAID and other multiple drive systems.

It is suited for applications that require high-bandwidth like server storage, PC gaming systems, video surveillance, ATA servers, media storage, industrial automation, and other high-end applications. This versatile and innovative drive provides fast and easy access to data at an average seek time of only 8.5ms.

Incorporated features like ECC and CRC protection and the internal thermal sensor enhance data protection and integrity. The Smooth Stream technology allows the host to control the drive's error recovery process and fine-tune the hard drive to capture long audio and video data streams, enhancing performance for media storage applications. This is a great desktop drive from Hitachi!

5 out of 5 eggsData source

Pros: Nice standard drive; it's the cheapest parallel ATA that I could find in the >100GB range. Seems to work reliably.

Cons: OEM version comes without any documentation & the drive itself doesn't have an info on it about jumper settings. I've posted a link to the Hitachi website where the details are available in PDF format.

Other Thoughts: Detailed info available at http://www.hitachigst.com/portal/site/en/menuitem.f9b3189a2f2e122d92b86b31bac4f0a0/
and you can get the installation guide (and jumper setting info) at http://www.hitachigst.com/tech/techlib.nsf/techdocs/CBF603665E5598BC86256F890078438F

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, cheap storage device

Pros: This is a simple, large, and cheap hard drive made by a reliable manufacturer that is easy to install. It took me about an hour and a half including formatting time.

Cons: None that I could find.

Other Thoughts: Most of you would probably think of this, but I forgot to pick up an installation kit as this is an OEM product. Just grab one from Newegg or any other computer store - probably $6 max.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive

Pros: I now use Hitachi exclusively as I have found other brands fail too quickly.
I installed this drive in a linux system where the previous drive was running very slowly. Frankly, if it was a windows system, I probably would have heard the death drive sounds.
Although the motherboard ide is only ata100 and the drive is ata133, the reinstall of linux was flawless.
Speed is impressive.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Hitachi forever

5 out of 5 eggsGood Drive

Pros: Size was actually 164.7 GB and registers as 153-154 formatted. Hitachi so I know it is good Quality.

Cons: I wanted a bigger/faster drive

Other Thoughts: I'm impressed by this drives performance and unexpected size (164.7 GB)

1 out of 5 eggsDeathstar

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Unreliable. This is the worst drive I've ever owned. My file server slowly died in the last 2 weeks because of that HD. At first my system locked up randomly or performed very poorly (huge interrupt latency every 10 sec). Now it won't even boot (one of its partition is the OS). Fortunately I had a backup.
