Summary: Bought 6 for a RAID storage server. RAID wouldn't initialize due to drive errors, so my IT department ran a suite of diagnostic tests on them. 3 came back as dead on arrival - right out of the box in sealed packaging. I'll update rating if RMA process works.
Summary: If you value your time and money, stay away! DIGITALET is reselling drives originally sold to system manufacturers. These drives were built by HGST in 2011 and sold in bulk to PC manufacturers. The two I received were date stamped APR-2011 and the other JUL-2011. THEY CARRY NO WARRANTY, as a call to HGST customer service revealed this morning.
Summary: We bought this 2TB hard drive on the recommendation from a friend to back up our media content. The hard drive was great for the first year, then it start to die. We contacted Hitachi tech support who promptly sent out a replacement. We were very impressed with the service and the quick response from Hitachi. The first replacement was dead on arrival.
Summary: Great speed, always easy setup, dont be a noob and say it doesnt work, do you research. I own 5 Hitachi HDD's all of them work great, 2 of them have over 20,000 hours of runtime on them and still work fine!
