  • Summary: This is a decently fast hard drive but one thing that REALLY throws me off is how loud the thing is. i cant even hear my computers fans over it when its reading/writing data.

Not "new" as described

J. Murphy, Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: Unit was described as "new" and "OEM Pull". Well, the OEM pull part is true. The drive I got in August 2014 was made in October 2010. The "new" part - not so true. S.M.A.R.T. data show 28,465 hours of use and 79 power cycles. It looks like this drive was pulled from a data center or server where it was used 24/7 for the last 4 years. Two stars because the unit is, for the moment, working perfectly.

Part Numbers Matter

Uncle Bob, Amazon
14 July 2014
  • Summary: The drive listed is a Hitachi HUA (Hitachi Ultra Star) disk drive. That's a high cost "Enterprise rated" disk drive. There is a very similar part with a HDS prefix (Hitachi Desk Star). The Ultra Star is designed for 24/7 server use. The Desk Star (HDS722020ALA330) is designed for desktop use with far fewer hours per year on power. If you pay for the HUA, make sure that's what you get.

death at 6 months!!!!

omen, Amazon
19 June 2014
  • Summary: After 5 months , all of my data has to be wiped off. You can read the data on the drive 3 items at a time before it will crash. You can not copy or delete anything with out a crash, and it does not have a WARRENTY. Hitachi told me to return it to the seller. This was a waste a money!!!

User Review

Cheng Han_W, NCIX.com
13 April 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: good quality from known manufacture
  • Cons: not the cheapest model

Warranty Confusion

Corbeck, Amazon
5 September 2013
  • Summary: The warranty on these drives is quite confusing. On one hand, the description of the drive states that they have a limited five year warranty. Yet, when the vendors are contacted they claim it only has a one year warranty. I was assured by a couple of vendors that the five year Hitachi warranty no longer applies to these "older drives".
