good drive purchased on recommendation

Summary: Great drive and a good value. Recommended by the IT Director at work. It seems pretty fast. I have purchased hard drives that failed within a year in past so I hope this one will stand the test of time.
Summary: Looking for alternatives to the various Seagate-branded USB drives that I have purchased in recent years ALL OF WHICH HAVE DIED IN LESS THAN TWO YEARS. Completely unacceptable. Very hopeful that these Hitachi drives will be more reliable.
Summary: I'm not saying it's a bad thing, in fact the one drive I tested so far seems to work BUT it was not mentioned anywhere in the product description that those were refurbished drive, or at least not clear enough that I could see it when reading the title and product description. I thought I was buying new drives and having a very good deal.
Summary: I purchased the enterprise HD for performance and longevity. The performance is there but it will be some time before I will know about the longevity. The catch I refered to in the title is that it came installed in a sled which had to be disassembled to use the drive in a standard computer or enclosure. The picture on Amazon is of a bare drive but it's not.
Summary: This hard drive is no longer made. It was important to the program that more of these hard drives were secured to maintain the life of the servers they operate. The availability of these hard drive avoids an immediate tech refresh.
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.
Summary: I purchased this to go with a barebones kit along with Win7 64 Pro. I have only had it for a few weeks, but it has been a good HDD so far. It is quick, quiet, and had good reviews elsewhere when I was researching. I purchased it because I wanted a good reliable drive for a 24 hour security camera loop.
