NOT NEW - IT'S A REFERBISHED DRIVE!

Summary: I bought 7 of these and the first two I installed crystaldisk pro show that they have both been used at least two years! I'm calling tomorrow to get satisfaction, I use Amazon all the time with no complaint and they may not be aware that this is a scam!
Summary: with the slightly more money you paid for, this is a reliable model from a known manufacture such as Hitachi. If you google the failure rate of hdd, you will see the rate is much higher for other manufacture like seagate or WD. So I would suggest Hitachi for Toshiba for future HDD upgrade.
Summary: EDIT - 06.23.2014: The following review was obviously intended for *a seller of the product (Green Tech) and *not the product. At the time of purchase, the UltraStar line of Hitachi HDD's was still considered reliable by the purchaser. A proper *product review would have given this particular item Four stars ****. _________________________________________________________ Western Digital now owns the Hitachi manufacturing rights.
Summary: I am shopping for a 2TB hard drive with a 5-year warranty, as a replacement for an unreliable WD Caviar Green hard drive (that died within a month after its warranty expired). Although the product description for this hard drive says there is a 5-year warranty, many (if not most) of the sellers offer a version with a 1-year warranty only. Buyer beware.
Summary: Good price and super fast delivery. Perfect choice for a replacement internal hard drive. Very easy to install particularly if you have a disk image from your old one. Much quieter and faster than the original. Excellent warranty.
Summary: I'm a WD personally, but after reading the specs and reviews, I decided to try this unit out. It is very quiet, like a new car when you forget that it's running and you try to restart it. I am very impressed with it and it did set up with no issues. We'll see just how long it will last.
