Summary: This review will be very much a mixed bag.

Summary: One of three hard drives in my Dell desktop PC had died, and it had been discontinued. Robert, a technician at Altex Computers in San Antonio, found the exact match on Amazon, so I followed his lead and made the order.
Summary: I bought two of this hard drive on Oct. of 2008 and installed it on a with Raid 1(mirroring) configuration. It's working great and have had no problems with it. I have used hitachi hard drives for servers before and I cannot remember any failure with this drive brand compare to seagate.

Summary: I purchased one of these for an internal back-up drive for a friend's computer. I'm a believer that internal back-ups make a lot more sense than an external drive for multiple reasons that include faster transfer speeds over SATA than USB 2.0, less wear and tear on the drive, etc...
Summary: The drive I just received is dated Jan. 2008. I seriously doubt this is a "new" drive. Also, it gets extremely hot, too hot to touch.

Good product at a good price, and just a touch of flexibility built in!

Summary: I bought this drive to mirror against another 'seagate' 1 tb in a server I built. I wanted the redundant drives to be of different manufacturers to add just a little bit more safety. The drive was immediately recognized and works fine.
