"Have great working quality, but kind of noisy."
7 June 2013
Pros: As said above, it's fast, reliable, and durable. I dropped it once, and it worked all well. it's very sturdy as well.
Cons: But it was been noisy even before I dropped it, and it's noisy in same way after I've dropped it. It have this 'scratching' sound whenever it's reading or writing something on HDD, and it's noisy enough to get me notice it every time.
Pros: Before buying this drive for my older system I callled Hitachi and received prompt and accurate information on the drive. It installed easily on my oder 150Gb system without needing any jumpers (unlike Seagate drives).
Cons: I have absolutely no complaints. The drive installed easily andhas worked perfectly for over 6 months now.
Summary: I allowed the Q&A to confuse me, and believed this was retail packaging, meaning it had cables included. It did not. So I ordered a cable set. . . delaying my install by a week. But once installed, the drive is quiet, fast, and worked flawlessly. It was recognized immediately on boot-up and my Window XP machine formated it without issue.
