Fantastic drive

Alan Brady, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I'm only rating on use quality because I haven't had it long enough to judge failure rate. However, before buying I did a little research and found Hitachi drives have a lot of good marks from actual users. I wanted to replace a smaller SSD with this so I could use the SSD on a different netbook. Once I got it all running, the speed was only slightly slower (barely even noticeable) than the SSD it replaced. I love it!

Drive will fail after 6-13 months of great performance

shrekster, Amazon
11 October 2013
  • Summary: Do not buy, has issues with loading/unloading of read head. Will only work fine if you permanently disable power management on this drive, which works for linux users, but, is difficult to do that on other operating systems I guess. You can do it temporarily though, using hdparm and similar tools. Clicking noise issue: [...

Worked as expected.

RST, Amazon
9 September 2013
  • Summary: This was used in an HP 8470P and worked as expected. This brand and model is the OEM (original) in the one we had ( which can vary by production lot) but should work in any 8470P.

Part of a Killer HTPC review

Hunter, Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: This drive was part of my killer HTPC build that I did a month ago. I have been running it for over a month and I can't rave enough about it to everyone I talk to. It does/plays/games everything I throw at it with ease. It's quiet too. Here's the breakdown of parts I put in it. Memory B005W2A5M4 CPU B0087EVHVW CPU Cooler B005O65JXI Case B00CAX6A3G SSD B0085J17UA Video B007B5V614 PVR Tuner B004OVE2B4 Power Supply B0092ML1SC BDROM B004ZMG55I Board B007R21KBM If you found...

but so far I've had very good luck with these HDs

Skip Thomsen, Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: It's fast and quiet in my laptop. How long it will last is anybody's guess, but so far I've had very good luck with these HDs. I have them in several laptops where they get used all day, every day, and have not had one fail. Yet.

Quality brand, very high capacity

M. A. Santos, Amazon
5 March 2013
  • Summary: I've been in the IT field for many years and for my ThinkPad laptops I prefer Hitachi drives. Their facilities are IBM's former Global Storage Division, and are thus top quality. I've only had one just up and crash on me over the years, and that was quite a while ago. This is a whopper of a drive but there is a 1TB version out now as well. Western Digital (WDC) recently bought out Hitachi, I hope it does not mean the end of high quality drives.

Sehr leise Platte

M. Ostmann "Michael", Amazon
11 April 2014
  • Summary: Ich hatte diese Platte in einem Medion Desktop erworben. Als ich diesen nun nach gut einem Jahr zur Display-Reparatur einschicken musste, habe ich diese ausgebaut und in ein kleines USB-Gehäuse gesetzt, und durch eine die her bestellte baugleiche ersetzt. Sie läuft auch in diesem Alu-Gehäuse quasi unhörbar und bietet sich daher hervorragend für Medien-Anwendung wie z.B. einem Festplattenrecorder an.
