Was marked refurbished...and was DOA!

Tolga J. Morawski "Tolga", Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: Unfortunately I installed this drive, which I bought from OWC in a 24" iMac without testing it to be sure it was good (especially as it was labeled, much to my surprise, as "refurbished"...silly me as I got the computer all assembled and powered it up only to hear the scan back and forth as it struggled to perform its self test. Bummer.

  • Summary: We had great difficulty with this device. It stopped working within a couple of months. We have contacted the company several times but they have not been responsive. I had to purchase a completely new (and different!) product.

Both drives I had failed

Flatfish, Amazon
26 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this drive a few weeks ago. The first drive was dead on arrival (didn't spin up). I had it replaced but the replacement drive is now also failing with over 400 reallocated sectors after only less than 200 hours of use. Might be bad luck, but really can't recommend this drive.

Bad Hard Drive, NO WARRANTY

Tatyana, Amazon
3 March 2012
  • Summary: I bought this drive in August 2010 for around £95 and has used it since in home desktop machine for file storage/torrenting. Yesterday, 2nd March 2012, it started giving me errors, so now I am forced to replace it. Fingers crossed the replacement arrives before this thing packs up. It has been used 24/7 for about a year, but nothing like enterprise environment. Really upsetting that a £95 drive can't even last 2 years under normal load!

Noisier than my whole system

Pedro Corbett, Amazon
4 February 2010
  • Summary: I have just purchased this drive and it produces more noise when accessing data randomly than my 3 case fans plus CPU fan plus video card fan plus my other 3 HD's TOGETHER. What's worse, Hitachi simply removed the option to alter the AAM (Automatic Acoustic Management) parameters from their Feature Tool utility since its version 2.13.

  • Excerpt: Никогда больше в мою голову даже близко не придет мысль купить диск производства Hitachi.
  • Pros: Их нет.
  • Cons: 1. При простаивании стучит и хрюкает так, что выведет из себя даже мертвого. Я такое громогласное хрюканье только у убитых HDD слышал, но все тесты показывают что диск исправен. Если планируете оставлять компьютер включенным на ночь - вы не уснете. 2. Сайт с утилитами для хитачевских hdd находится с трудом. И выясняется по логотипу, что вообще это не хитачи, а western digital все производит. http://www.hgst.com/support/index-files/simpletech-legacy-downloads 3. Прошив...

Hitachi Festplatten kommen für mich nicht mehr in Frage.

Herr Grinsekatze "post2586", Amazon

  • Summary: Ich habe insgesammt 3 Stück, diese die hier besprochen wird und eine im Gehäuse (original Hitachi). Also alles die gleichen Typen. Eine ist noch heil, die zweite hat sich nach ein paar Monaten verabschiedet. Es hatten sich elektrische Bauteile gelöst. Kurz nachdem ich den Umtausch bekam, gab die im USB-Gehäuse den Geist auf. Die Tools von Hitachi brachten nichts, aber mit dem Reparaturprogramm von Windows habe ich sie nach einigen Versuchen wieder zum Laufen bekommen.
