Perhaps a little slow, but reliable and easy to use.

  • Summary: I have five Hitachi xl1000 external memories all functioning with a Humax HDR Fox T2 digital recorder. They are all in constant use and are excellent. Flexible, easy to use and reliable though a little slow by comparison with more modern designs.

Lost everything

  • Summary: I have had this product for a few months and it worked fine until it fell on it's side, it did not fall off a table or chair merely onto it's side! Suddenly my computer could not read the parameters, it has a strange clicking sound and all my files have been lost!

  • Summary: Pros: good value for money, 1000gb is more thn enough space for almost everyone, looks sleek (I like the little stand it comes with. No problems 18 months on. Cons: the 'Hitachi' logo light is a bit brigt when plugged in - bit annoying if you sleep in the same room as it when turned on.

A change of opinion

R. Mason, Amazon
6 November 2011
  • Summary: After buying this product in August I posted a negative review as a result of the drive failing to start. Since that time I have tried using it again and had no further problems to date [touch wood!]. I suspect the problem may have been caused by my computer.
