Loud, but it works

Pros: -2TB
-A lot faster than my (very old) laptop drive

Cons: -Very loud, all kinds of rattling and occasionally some humming
-Mine is being seen as a SATA II (3.0Gb/s) drive???? Not sure if the listing is wrong or if something is up with the drive itself
-Probably couldn't keep up with SATA III speeds anyway, considering its a mechanical drive

Other Thoughts: If you don't mind the noise, I'd say you can go for it.

Still running after a week

Pros: I selected this drive for its 2,000,000 hour MTBF, so having it running for a week isn't much of a test.
It's quiet.
Delivery of the drive was prompt.

Cons: Drive manufacture date was 5 years before I received it. Then again, since nobody makes things the way they used to, getting an item that was made five years prior might be a good thing!

Other Thoughts: Drive wouldn't spin up when I first received it -- I thought it was DOA. However, I left it in the computer with the power turned on over night. That would be about 85 degrees according to the motherboard sensors. The warmth of the case air brought it back to life, and the drive came right up when I rebooted the next morning. It's been running ever since.

Dead right after 1 year with very light use

Pros: Worked for the first year

Cons: I set it up with a windows server, which was turned off most of the year. The PC couldn't recognize the drive after a year. Very disappointed. Luckily I've got another backup to fall back on.

So far so good.

Pros: - Works perfect out of the box
- Apparently it's one of the most reliable drives available according to non-biased reviewers out there which is why I bought it.
- Handled 9 straight hours of file transfer without any issues aside from the heat which I just used an ice pack and paper towel for condensation. This was before I knew that it always ran hot no matter what it was doing (see below).

Cons: - It runs hot at all times. Like right now, it's idling and not doing anything, yet it's hot. Fortunately, that apparently doesn't affect it's reliability at all. Still a concern though.
- Initial startup is clunky, and by that I don't mean in a defective way... you just feel the vibrations as it spins up on the desk next to you when you turn it on.
- Unusually heavy drive compared to say my WD Blue 1TB drive which this replaces, not that it makes any difference.

Other Thoughts: Knowing all this, I plan on drilling some holes in my external all aluminum enclosure and installing a small fan to the outside of it so the drive can breathe and cool down a lot better.
For the record, there was nothing at all wrong with my WD Blue drive. In fact, I just moved it to another computer. I just wanted to give HGST a chance since they apparently have a better reputation. But so far, I prefer WD as I never once had any weird issues like this with them.
