5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast hard drives. Setup in RAID 5. Ordered three, they've all worked so far.

Cons: None. OEM packaging always sucks due to lack of cables but other than that, these are great.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed after a little more than a year.

Pros: worked well for the first year

Cons: Started seening write errors appear a few months back. Has slowly become worse and have taken the drive out of commission and won't buy another 1 year warranty drive.

Other Thoughts: I was expecting more from a Hitachi drive especially as it was well reviewed, but I think that getting any drive with such a small warranty is a mistake. Next time I will probably go for a Seagate with its 5 year warranty. Certainly any brand can fail, but you really need a warranty longer than 1 year to feel like you get your money's worth.

1 out of 5 eggsReliability issue

Pros: worked well for 2 months. 1 year warranty in case it dies after 2 months.

Cons: died after 2 months.

Other Thoughts: newegg's a great company but they shouldn't censor comments - doing so isn't in the best interest of its customers --yeah, us.. the nerds who keep newegg in business and buy computer gadgets by the kilo ;-)

5 out of 5 eggsRAID Array Material

Pros: Fast 7200 RPM drives in all aspects. Low average seek times. Support SATA II (3.0 Mbps) mode. Very reliable IMO. I've been using earlier IBM/Hitachi drives for the past 7 years, and I only had one drive fail in a dozen (in a hot AMD system) after 2 years.

Cons: To modify drive's settings such as acoustic modes, SATA modes, etc... you need to use Hitachi Feature Tool. I found that Feature Tool doesn't work on most of Dell desktops with RAID controllers, whatever you do. So if you want to use these drives on a Dell system chances are you'll be stuck with default factory settings for these drives, such as SATA I. But honestly it has no effect on performance as it's just an interface transfer mode but you still get benefits of NCQ and stuff with SATA I mode on these drives.

Other Thoughts: I use 4x of these particular drives for my RAID1+0 array on Dell XPS410 system. Also something worth mentioning: Dell desktops don't support onboard Intel Matrix Storage RAID 5 although chipsets do support it.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's decent

Pros: Nice hard drive, quiet, spacious, and it's SATA.

Cons: Only 8MB of cache, others for the same price have 16MB.

Other Thoughts: Eventually the hard drive began getting bad sectors. I'm not sure if this is from many quick-formats being done on it, or if it genuinely had some bad sectors.
