Disk in good conditions 7/28/2020 9:49:41 AM

Cons: the disks have a lot of hours of use indicated by CrystalDisk it shows 60,000 hours of use and I don't know if that is correct

Overall Review: I need to have more time with the disks to have a more certain opinion

Good so far 3/6/2019 10:25:06 PM

Pros: Over 6 years and still going strong. Speedy and quite. I ordered five and all were good. I will come back and post if I have any other good or bad to report.

Cons: When the drive spins up there is a sound. I do not know how to explain it. A high pitch, whirl, who knows. It sounds like it is the actuator arm. Not horrible, just noticeable. I thought one of the drives was dieing already. I listened to each individual drive to find the culprit. Nope, all of them make the sound. I then listened to another Hitachi drive that is four years old and same thing. It is just the way they sound.

The drives take a while to spin up but that could be normal. I am not timing or anything. Just what I noticed during an install bootup.

Overall Review: It does not matter what hard drive brand you buy. Each brand will have failures. Some more then others. If you really want to use reviews for a good indication the the best way to read the reviews is the percentage of stars. If the five star has a majority of the reviews 70% or higher and the one star has very little of the remaining 30%, then the product has a good average. Compare one product stars this way with another. Which one has the majority of their stars in the five and least in the one. HGST is one of these that have a high average of good ratings.

My experience the Hitachi always performed way better then other brands and the other brands died more often on me. That is my story. How about yours?

Could not be more pleased! 6/29/2017 2:23:37 PM

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! -_- 3/23/2017 8:23:58 PM

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.

Overall Review: 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 2/17/2016 8:39:38 PM

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.
