Hitachi GST Deskstar 7K1000 HDS721010KLA330 (0A35155) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: I got this when it was 27 bucks right after Christmas. Yesterday, I hooked up my failing and flailing WD Blue and copied over the whole drive using Minitool Partition Wizard. I had the WD Blue in my freezer since before Christmas day to make sure I had enough time to copy the whole drive before it failed to read on my SATA bus.Mission Accomplished, so now I have recovered my system. Performance Test benches this drive at much better than the WD Blue. So far so good.

Cons: Well, it's a Hitachi. These used to be made by IBM. There has been some bureaucratic shuffling of company identities and that hurts the product quality. Lately Hitachi drives have been of the worst I have ever used, but I can't afford a Seagate or another WD Blue. IN fact I just had an older Hitachi drive fail miserably in a PC I built for a recent client- And fail irrecoverably. So I hope this drive gives me ample warning before it starts going "clickity click". My Power On Time Count reads 47902, I don't know if that is hours or other. But Power Cycle count reads 29. But the unit IS refurb, But Hitachis don't have to be refurb to be bad drives. IN this case, they are either good, in which case they seem to be very good, or they were delivered as Coasters. I'd say RMA the things and get another.

Other Thoughts: Hell I'll buy another @ 35 bucks, I can't afford anything else. But I really am seriously worried about my Data. However, the drive, refurbished as it is, is solid, and benches out much faster than any other drive I've had in this PC, including 1 WD Blue and 2 Seagates. I hope that dopn't mean it will fail quicker.

1 out of 5 eggs Vista, part 8.1 10/25/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro (Full Version) - Download

Pros: It has a start button

Cons: Most problematic OS since vista

Other Thoughts: Windows 8 was STABLE. 8.1 is not. It's that simple. Maybe I'll put it back in after a few updates, maybe not. The very few people I know who have been able to get this running without massive problems are happy with it- but that's a low amount as of this date.
