Hitachi GST H3IK40003254SP (0S03359) 4TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Huge amount of storage in small form factor. Cool and quiet. Worked well with LSI 9211-8i controller.

Cons: Cost per gigabyte is a little high, but I needed to pack 16 of these in 4U of rack space so I paid the premium price.

Other Thoughts: I ordered 18 of these and only one had a problem (was promptly replaced by HGST).

VANTEC NST-380SU3-BK Aluminum 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I needed an external eSATA chassis that would support 2.5" drives and this one seems to work fine.

Cons: Drive is only secured with a single screw (which isn't included in the package, but can easily be gotten from somewhere else).

2 out of 5 eggs Didn't work for me 10/20/2011

This review is from: HighPoint Rocket 622 PCI-Express 2.0 x1 SATA III (6.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: Seemed like it was a reasonable cost for 6G eSATA adapter and appears to be identical to the one selling for more than twice as much by NewerTechnology.

Cons: I tried this in my workstation Acer M5100 and machine would not boot with it installed (used StarTech card instead). It also does not work in Dell PowerEdge T110 or T310 servers (they boot, but card won't initialize after drivers are loaded)
