JUst the drive?

Cris5549, Amazon
25 March 2012
  • Summary: Well I've had this drive for about a 3 months still in the amazon box never opened it or anything. Today as I was about to install it I opened the box and the drive was all there was. I bought it because it was a great price and it also had all the accessories. Too late for me to say anything to amazon or the seller I just want to let people know that you might not get all that you are promised. As for the drive, it is really loud and writing speeds are average so yehap.

Died in 4 months

Henry T. Colonna "Happy nerd", Amazon
15 December 2010
  • Summary: Died hard in 4 months no warning, made awful sound. Hitachi's RMA process is much slower than Western Digital's. I'm not buying any more Hitachi drives.

OEM- Incorrect model description and missing items

Brian, Amazon
20 October 2010
  • Summary: I did NOT get the retail product described. This is OEM (albeit mine had the same internal shock packaging as the retail package) but it does NOT come with cable, screws, or instructions. No idea if the warranty is equivalent, either. OEM products often have no or short warranties, whereas retail on this has 3 years.

This item shipped from Amazon is NOT what is pictured!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 October 2010
  • Summary: This is NOT the item pictured! I am very disappointed with what I received. The picture clearly shows a boxed item with SATA cable and I received an OEM HDD only. Very misleading on the part of Amazon!!!!

Warning OEM Hard Drive

Rolex96, Amazon
30 August 2010
  • Summary: I can't even review the actual drive because what I recieved was not the nicely packaged hard drive with all the accessories but a loose hard drive in a plain brown box, which I didn't even bother opening. After a little digging I realized it was an OEM hard drive. I have no problem ordering it like this(I would have just ordered the cable for [...] bucks), but when the actual website shows the full product and i get this.....

Some have good luck

Sergio Guzman, Amazon
29 July 2010
  • Summary: The box came without the manual in the first place so I have no idea about the warranty, and I don't live in the US so basically I'm stock with a dead drive. It was working fine for about 22 days, then started to show I/O errors when writing, they started about 2 per week, then 3 per day. SMART says the drive will fail within 24 hours and backup my stuff. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone, also another Hitachi drive of 160GB SATA with some 3+ years started to fail too.

Bare drives. Not retail.

Jon, Amazon
20 July 2010
  • Summary: I ordered two of these units. However, I received two bare drives in static bags, devoid of "retail" packaging: no Hitachi box; no SATA cable; no mounting screws. I've uploaded a few photos of the shipment, a couple of OEM drives in Amazon boxes. Amazon did acknowledge the error and apologized. Apparently, they ran out of retail units, so some yahoo in the warehouse shipped a couple of OEMs instead.

Not RETAIL packaging - DRIVE ONLY!

AllAboutThisProduct, Amazon
19 July 2010
  • Summary: I received 2 of these today and they are NOT RETAIL PACKAGING. It is the drive only! I tried to contact Amazon by phone at 1:46pm today but was advised that their systems were down and to call back in a half hour. I can still use them just fine I suppose but I usually buy retail versions if the price is right because most often they carry a longer warranty. Now I will check by serial # to see how long they are warranted for vs.

HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000.C 1TB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Kimoni, pricebat.ca
25 August 2013
  • Excerpt: This drive was inexpensive. This drive was dead on arrival. It just clicked repeatedly and loudly. I used a wristband, was careful about handling my components, and anything else I ordered for my construct worked, except this tough drive. Also, it was securely wrapped in a load of bubble wrap, so I doubt it was broken in shipping, but I suppose something is achievable.
