This is a tad faster than my previous Seagate 15000 RPM HDD, Windows 7 disk score jumped from 5.9 to 6.0 (yay!). Drive did not even come close to 100MB/s when reaching the end of the platters in HD Tune Pro where my old Seagate would drop way below 100MB. I like this drive so far, also has lots more cache than my old drive (64MB vs 16MB). Only wish I had the money to buy another one for a RAID 0 config.

Running this on a LSI 9260-8i controller, Supermicro motherboard and dual Xeon X5650 setup.

This is a pretty fast drive and I did get some good boot times out of it with Windows 8. I actually returned the drive, not because of defects or performance...but because it is very loud. Coming from an SSD or a 7200RPM drive, you'll be in for a surprise as to how loud these really are. It's almost a screechy/scraping metallic sound. I really didn't want to get used to that...which is only (my opinion). Also, I use Diskeeper on all my drives and found that it has no effect on this drive. The drive is still fast...but you will get a continual warning in Diskeeper that there is moderate fragmentation.

If you don't mind the sound...this is a great drive...which is why I'm giving it 5 stars.

Again...you can really really really hear these drives working. You should YouTube one...so you have a sense of how loud they are.

These are not new drives (like they are listed) they are pulled from old servers. Mine had 5 years of constant use with large amounts of errors

I ordered four of these drives thinking they were new with full manufacturer warranty. After three days, I've had one drive fail. Worse, HGST says:

"The drive is not valid for warranty through HGST. Please return product to your point of purchase."

I will be contacting the vendor for an immediate replacement and clarification of warranty status. If these drives are not new as advertised with a manufacturer full warranty, I'll have to return them all, which means transferring all the data and rebuilding the array. Thanks for that.

make sure it gets a lot of airflow. Designed to take the heat but try to keep it cool. Not too noisy

I ordered 4 of these drives. All 4 had so many sector errors that my RAID controller card kicked them out immediately.
My order came through Prince Technology LLC.

BUYER BEWARE
