Summary: Fast delivery and well packaged, this drive works well in my Son's Desktop. No problems with install or formatting and it continues to work well. All as expected for a HDD at this stage of the product life cycle.
Summary: A perfect addition for my DELL computer as a secondary drive. The speed (RPM) and reliability of this unit has been GREAT so far. I personally feel that Hitachi, Toshiba, Western Digital make some of the finest mechanical hard drives.
Summary: Dell has been using Hitachi drives for quite a while in their SATA based servers. I currently work in a Dell only environment and rarely have any hard drive issues. These drives are solid. I used them in all my personal, friends, and family PC builds. Never an issue.
HGST Deskstar 3.5" 1 TB SATA III 32MB from Amazon.com
16 September 2012
Summary: The HGST Deskstar 3.5" 1 TB SATA 3 32MB is a light weight, low noise, low vibration, low heat and also has a low power consumption that allows you to use a smaller power supply. The hard drives are made by Hitachi Global, but I think Western Digital purchased their operations. The price was right when I purchased (2) @ $89.99 each, now they are cheaper @ $86.63 plus free shipping and handling.
