The computer came equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0GHz CPU, 2GB of DDR2 800MHz memory, Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250310AS 250GB SATA hard drive, NVIDIA Quadro FX570 256MB PCIe graphics card, Intel 82567LM-3 gigabit network card and HighPoint Rocket 620 SATA 6Gb/s controller. For the operating system, I installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Enterprise.

  • Summary: When we consider the qualities we like to see in a "green" hard drive, the Deskstar 5K3000 2TB is middle of the road. Its energy efficiency is unable to touch WD's Caviar Green series, though it is a big improvement over Seagate's Barracuda Green / LP . The 5K3000 is a very quiet drive, but again, can't match the Caviar Greens, which are practically inaudible.

  • Summary: Hitachi Desk­star 5K3000 демонстрирует приемлемые для своей сферы применения ­результаты. Тридцатимесячная фирменная гарантия и привлекательная цена, близкая к заветному показателю «1 руб. за 1 Гбайт», — дополнительные аргументы в пользу выбора именно этого устройства.
  • Pros: Привлекательная цена.
  • Cons: Малая емкость буферной памяти, невысокая производительность.
