Hitachi Hard Drive just not the quality they used to be
2 September 2014
Summary: well i bought this as a replacement for a laptop...it was priced well and was excited once i received it..But very soon problems arose and within 8 weeks it made a very noticeable grinding sound..so i contacted hitachi and they promptly sent me another one and made it a backup ...so not using it daily it lasted a little longer and this time it just died...i would not buy Hitachi again..i have had great luck with previous products..
Summary: Origonal review: not a Great HDD for doing much other than Normal Tasks (gaming preformance is meh) the harddrive is VERY slim for my ASUS K53Z-As61 wich has room for a standard 2.5in drive but this is so tiny it is begining to bend the SATA port, otherwise it makes MOUTIANS of heat and i dont reccomend it unless it is going into a well coolen enviorment EDIT: i have had this drive for about 7 months and i belive it has a controller board problem (i gave it "normal use"...
Summary: This was a replacement that Sony installed after I requested a new HDD after my experience with the original Toshiba HDD. Only 286 GB available. Sluggish, Not Responding errors constantly on my POS Sony Vaio S series pc (not even a year old). NOTHING, and I do mean nothing, can help this HDD. PC has to go back to Sony and have the original Toshiba HDD installed under warranty. This hard drive was installed in July, and my problems have existed over eight weeks.
Summary: Достоинства Использовал в ноутбуке менее месяца, тихий, достаточно быстрый для своих характеристик. Недостатки Может мне не повезло, но в течении менее месяца появилось более 93 bad секторов. Пришлось сдать по гарантии, отпишусь по возвращению! Общие впечатления Надеялся на Hitachi, но и она подводит, успел только инфу снять.
