Refurbished-Quality Hard Drive with High Noise and Temp, Good read/write speed

BWagner, Amazon

  • Summary: I thought I was ordering a good drive for a sweet price, but you get what you pay for with this vendor. No software or connection wires came with this drive! Once I installed it and booted up the PC, the hard drive made it's presence known. Do you know the sound a turbine makes as it spins up? That is the noise that this hard drive produces every time I power up my system.

Great when working but beware of clicks-of-death

  • 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... This drive did the job until about a month ago when it developed the all too common 'clicks-of-immanent-death.

High DOA rate

  • Summary: I put four of these drives in my Mac Pro. Two of them weren't even be visible for formatting in Disk Utility and had to be replaced. The ones I have gotten working have been working continuously just fine.

Works great but too noisy

Gerry W. Beyer, Amazon
28 November 2007
  • Summary: The drive is wonderfully large, fast, and so far, very reliable. However, it can, at times, be extremely noisy as it seeks and writes. Despite being placed in an insulated enclosure, I can hear it working in the next room. I am using it as an external DVR drive and thus the noise is often irritating.

It is not always faster than a quickly one

  • Excerpt: 1 TB hard drive capacity and 32 MB cache buffer - a major advantage, and 7200 rpm SATA300 interface and taken for granted. Drive is not the only one at all with such a capacity, it is just one of manies. In both cases, if you create a RAID-array default used in the proposed block size 128 KB. With its low density, the hard drive from Hitachi is a legitimate outsider. But the union drives in the array with interleaving - improves the speed of up to 15,000 rpm.

capacidad a un alto precio

  • Summary: Por fin están empezando a ver la luz los primero discos con capacidades de 1 Terabyte, algo que desde hace tiempo estamos esperando pero que a pesar de la gran competitividad que hay actualmente en el mercado por de las capacidades de discos duros se ha hecho de esperar. Para los que no lo sepáis, un Terabyte es igual a 1.000 gigabytes, así que en pocas palabras, espacio por un tubo XD Las principales características del Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 son las siguientes: -...
  • Pros: Capacidad, caché de 32 MB, velocidad
  • Cons: precio
