Picked up this drive last week via Amazon/J&R. Cheapest price I have seen so far on this drive- was watching price for weeks all over the web -coming down. Paid $179.00 including ship & no tax. Drive would be going into replace 1 of 4 Hitachi 2TB 7200 rpm in a 2008 3.0Mhz 8 core MacPro.

Initially plugged drive into the external E-Sata port of a Highpoint E-Sata for Mac PCI 4 lane card with the bare drive sitting on my desk. Drive initialized fine by disk utility & formatted as GUID w/3 partitions. One a start-up partition- cloned to w/CCC & 2 separate data- disks- one used as scratch disk. Old Hitachi 2TB was running out of space- hard to believe right, given that there are 4 of them in the MacPro.

Anyway had the drive on my desk for several hours copying data to it/ cloning etc. Never really became excessively warm at all. I do routinely have bare drives on my desk similarly so I get to listen & feel how warm & loud drives actually are. This drive in my estimation is the quietest drive I have ever seen (except a SSD LOL). Even copying continuous to it -I had to put my ear to it really to hear anything.

Did not notice any real speed difference at this point since the highpoint e-sata bus is probably about 20% slower than the on board motherboard Sata bus. What I did notice was after copying & cloning all the partitions I had DiskWarrior rebuild the directories on the 3 partitions. Since I routinely rebuild similar partitions on the internal drives I have a good handle how long it would usually take on the Hitachi 2TB 7200 rpm current drives. Never saw directories rebuilt quite that fast. Not smoking, but noticeably faster. Maybe the 64 MB cache has something to do with it - don't know.

Mounted in bay 2 -works fine, BOOTS fine.

I have three of these installed in my Synology DS1511+ NAS and I couldn't be happier. The temperatures all run 38-41 degrees C under small loads, and are fairly quiet. Quiet enough that I have the box in my room running while I sleep. I am able to maintain a very fast transfer rate to them in Raid 5 (about 80-90MBps for larger files). I can't say enough great things about these drives. And if their service is anything like when I had to warranty swap out one of my 2TB Deskstar drives, if the time comes to replace one of these I'll have no fear.

First off I would like to say for anyone having doubts this is in FACT the latest version of this drive and I checked the numbers with the Hitachi web site after I received it so if you are worried about that have no fear.

Now before I sing the praise of this drive I will mention one concern and it has to do with noise.You can surely tell this drive is there as you can hear it working, for some like myself this is welcome as someone who has been computing for 23 yrs I like to hear my drive in action and have grown used to it.

With that said this drive offers rock solid reliability with excellent performance, so long as you do not mind a little noise. For just under $ 60 you get this in my opinion awesome drive with the added peace of mind that it came in retail packaging. This means factory sealed Anti Static bag and shock resistant packaging materials !!!

You would need to spend 80 to 90 dollars to get a Seagate Barracuda 1 Tb in a retail box and over 100 dollars to get a WD Caviar Black in a retail box.

At any rate if you need absolute silence the you will probably be disappointed with this unit and I suggest you look elsewhere. If you want both quiet and performance and it is a money issue, then I suggest you wait till you have the money for something more expensive like an SSD and then pair it with a low speed 5400 or 5900 RPM drive for quiet storage.

A good compromise would be to use a notebook 7200 RPM hard drive with one of the Silverstone 3.5 to 2.5 bay adapters which can be had on Amazon. The Hitachi 7200 RPM 500 Gb notebook drive is great I have one in my notebook so again I speak from experience.

Despite what the product description says, these drives DO indeed support RAID configurations. I emailed Hitachi confirming this prior to purchasing them. Their reply was, "They support RAID." I ran them in RAID1 without any issues. Disregard what it says in the product details.

We have a dozen of these hard drives (2 Terabyte) Hitachi models
running on 6 computers. They have yet to present any problems.
Formatting was easy using the Windows XP Disk Management tools (all of our computers use WINDOWS XP SP3). The drives are a bit noisy at times, but quiet most of the times. We do not have any running on
a RAID configuration so we have no comments on those types of installations.

Years ago I started using IBM's line of hard disks to cut failure rates. I have IBM drives with 1/2 million spinning hours logged and no failures in a recent low level reformat to build a 20TB NAS RAID. Hitachi for a while was producing the IBM drives and finally bought out that division of IBM, but kept the quality in the product.

In the same load of that raid-5 system Synology 5-Bay Plug-n-Use Expansion Unit to DS1010+ and DS710+ Network Attached Storage DX510 (Black) the old IBM drives were loaded side by side with two new WD 2.0 GB drives and the entire 5 drive system was given a low level format. In the logfile, the two WD drives had multiple (>100) read errors and a few (>30) bad sectors while the ancient IBM discs had zero failures. In the main box I had bought some of these Hitachi units and found they also did a low level format with zero errors.

While I don't want to speculate on why IBM left the diskdrive business, their legacy of reliability, speed, and capacity has proven their overall value in preserving data for years without problems. Today I insist on using hitachi's IBM legacy mechanism in new computers or raid storage arrays because out of 40+ IBM style drives in use both in on/off environments and constant spinning environments, none have failed.

There are free tools on the internet that will let you read your drive's "log" of errors - I highly recommend not only the hitachi disk systems but this software for reading the s.m.a.r.t. memory in the drives you have to predict future reliability or failures. While all mechanical devices eventually die, keeping track of subtle failure hints is important.
