This is a great Terabyte drive, but note potential compatibility issues

Graham, Amazon
13 January 2008
  • Summary: This is a great Terabyte disk, but note that the 7K1000 has documented compatibility issues with some early first generation SATA controllers. I hit this on a VIA 8237 controller. Hitachi note issues with the VIA 8237A chipset, Marvell Gen 1 series and the Sierra Logic SR-1216 chipset, but there may be others. Unfortunately Hitachi don't provide any workarounds.

Fit the Bill

  • 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. It had to be just the same as the others so he could configure the PC for Raid 5, as I asked. To make a long story short, the hard drive was a perfect fit, allowing the new configuration and even an OS upgrade from 32-bit XP to 64-bit Vista.

Reliable Server and Desktop Hard Drive

Amazon Customer "Simplyness", Amazon
18 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought two of this hard drive on Oct. of 2008 and installed it on a Sans Digital TowerRAID TR2UT-B 2 Bay SATA to USB 2.0/eSATA JBOD/Spanning /RAID 0/ RAID 1 Enclosure 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.

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

KB, Amazon
18 December 2007
  • 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. One thing I did like more on the hitachi was that it has power inputs for both sata and molex connectors. Don't see that much anymore.

Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 HDS721010KLA330

ugc, AfterDawn.com
7 November 2008
  • Summary: I have about 10 of these. I use them for DVD storage instead of DVDs. I also use 4 in a media server in a raid 0 setup. I highly recommend them. I have had zero problems, and the price doesn't get much better per Gb.
