Failed after less than 1 year

Justatom "TPK", Amazon
24 April 2011
  • Summary: Most unusual long term failure ever encountered. System components didn't fail usual tests. But still had problems. After testing other components, switched hdd to another system. Problem followed hdd. Ran cooler then other hdd's. Just wish it lasted. Don't know what "Full replacement, worry-free warranty" means in the product description. Hitachi site processed just a normal exchange by serial#. Didn't find any option for advanced exchange. Glad I didn't need one.

Could be great but mine was defective

Nicholas Lacolla "Nick", Amazon
3 May 2010
  • Summary: The drive is quiet and fast. However, mine would do a very noisy click, click, click seek every 5 minutes that I could hear from 5 feet away. So I returned it. If it didn't have that it would have been a keeper.

Quick delivery, Poor packaging

Mr H, Amazon
9 June 2012
  • Summary: Arrived in 2 days of purchase - Excellent, but whether they aware or not, in a way too big a box. Inside, foam or any other protection packaging was non existent. The hdd was 'almost' wrapped with a piece of cling film type tape against a piece of cardboard, but it weren't clinging on to anything so the HDD was free to move about. Not the best way to ship a hdd and I do not count the box and the air inside as protection.

  • Excerpt: Lots of space for cheap. My first one particular was DOA. RMA'd it for a different 1 and presently am in the process of waiting. Hopefully it arrives working so that I can write a proper evaluation.

Initially pleased but now dissappointed

Mr. D. T. Nash, Amazon
14 April 2012
  • Summary: Drive worked well initially, could say it installed easily but that's what we expect these days. It has been an external backup drive and only switched on about once a week. Over the last few months it wouldn't start up straight away but now if it actually does spin up it dies if I try to access it. A reasonable priced drive but not if it only lasts a year.

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

Michelle, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Incredibly low price for the quantity of space. Arrived speedily. Purchased three of these and 1 of the them was DOA. Made a clicking and beeping sound. I must have listened to those who bought them and also had DOA's. 33% defective rate doesn't cut it for me. Thankfully Newegg has a wonderful replacement policy.

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

Bernice, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Excellent price for a 1Tb harddrive Extremely loud; makes a grinding knocking noise when accessing the drive. Will either RMA if there is free shipping or acquire an additional one (possible else exactly where). Very loud and annoying to work with but enjoying the added space till I am either forced to another 1Tb drive or my old 80Gb one.

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

Olaf, pricebat.ca

  • Excerpt: Rapid, works nicely in my Drobo. Ordered two, one was DOA. Stick to Seagate or Western Digital. These drives had been low-cost so I got two for use in a new Drobo FS with the program to order two additional in the subsequent month as I move my data over. These undoubtedly live up to the Deathstar legend, my first and last time buying Hitachi drives. RMA was quick, kudos to newegg as usual.

must be a faulty batch continues

Starvin Marvin, Amazon
17 May 2011
  • Summary: bought one of these drives as a replacement for my Seagate and Samsung 500Gb drives. It arrived well packaged and protected but I've found it to be slow and noisey. I've ran the HDS tests and they report back all is well. Yes it's a cheap 1Tb drive but all the reviews I've read so far have said this is a fairly decent performing disk and is quiet too.
