Could not be more pleased!

Pros: Purchased a RAID array many years back and was looking for replacement drives. Tried a few times with other vendors and got sent "similar" but not as advertised drives. This time, I got exactly what I ordered!

Cons: None

It's OLD! -_-

Pros: 2 TB of storage. It still reads and writes.

Cons: Over five years old. Makes lots of strange noises you could interpret as sounds a drive nearing the end of its lifespan would make. One failed data backup for reasons not understood.

Other Thoughts: Manufactured in 2011, this drive seems ridiculously overpriced for a second hand, 5+ year old hard drive. Notice how the product image is blurred? -That seems an intentional omission (and a thing I'll be on the lookout for in the future...falsified images are not inconceivable though). Put this into service as a data backup, so far transferring roughly 1TB of data. It got a little odd during a recent backup though, can't say if it was the drive or some other software hiccup but mid backup it became unrecognizable to a win 7 machine. A 2nd attempt yielded passable results but I would not trust this old unit as a primary drive.

Died in the 4th year

Pros: Stores data

Cons: Died - real bummer. Went to go pull up some photos one day and the drive was gone. Dead. Bought it because of the supposed reliability of Hitachi. In reality this is the only HD that has EVER died on me!

Pros: None

Cons: Still waiting for over a month for this part to be delivered and all NewEgg can say is that it's not their fault. The lack of service and shuffling of blame is the worst I have ever encountered. PERIOD.

burn 3 $ 100.00 bills. Stay AWAY

Pros: Are you kidding? If I could give it a quarter star I would.

Cons: The joke was on me for buying this pig. I never achieved the speed that was promised.. I used it mostly for backup. DON"T !! Got blue screens of death after 6 months. I thought the OS load was just corrupted and needed to be reloaded. It was worse than that. This is NOT on Newegg at all. I notice it's hard to find 5 year warranted drives anymore. I can see why. Very expensive lesson.

Other Thoughts: You might as well burn 3 $100.00 bills. You'll get just as far. I can see why Big Blue sold off this division. BTW, I ran their factory test on it. It FAILED on surface. I have 2 Western Digital drives I have been using. Guess what? I'll be staying with them from now on.

Solid hard drive

Pros: 2TB of storage, 7200 RPM, 64MB
No corruption, breakdown, overheating, anything

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend an SSD to store your operating system in

dead junk

Pros: worked...for awhile.

Cons: Used this to store movies and pics and back up valuable data. All gone..poof! That dreaded clicking noise. After all the years of experience and reasearch into making HDDs why is the failure rate still so high?

Other Thoughts: Every drive should come with retrieval insurance included. What good is a replacement on a failed drive if you loose the data? Do you really want another drive from the same MFG?

Great Speeds!

Pros: Very fast - Just recently bought a WD black and this drive blows the WD black away! (I record with Dxtory a lot for my YouTube channel and with Dxtory benchmark this drive is about 125 were the Wd Black is only about 80.)
Reliable- I bought this drive in 2012 not one problem with it.

Cons: No longer for sale on Newegg :( , Shame this drive isn't available anymore I would have bought another one of these over the WD black I bought.

Other Thoughts: I didn't expect this drive to be as fast as it is. Its a great HDD so far and If it was still available I would get another.
