Summary: So far so good. Got this to replace a failed drive in an external enclosure. It's relatively slower to spin up at powerful, compared to the old drive but it's quiet and is working great. Couldn't beat the price.
Summary: One of the drives appears to only be 130 GB not 500 as advertised. More investigation to determine exact size underway. After further investigation, drive is indeed 500 GB. Sorry for the operator error.
Summary: I purchased this drive to replace another drive which had failed. Fortunately I had a backup and my data was saved. I choose this drive after looking at various Internet sites reporting on the dependability of Hard Disk Drives. Hitachi stood out as a drive that failed less than other manufacturer's.
