Less Power, More Performance

The Deskstar 7K1000.C hard drive is a 7200 RPM 3.5-inch hard drive that provides an exceptional blend of power efficiency and performance, making it an ideal solution for power-friendly consumer and commercial desktop computers. This third-generation 1TB hard drive from HGST boosts media transfer rate performance by as much as 13% over its predecessor. Leveraging eighth-generation power management technology, as well as power-saving HiVERT innovations pioneered on the popular 2.5-inch line of notebook hard drives from HGST, this new desktop drive provides up to 18% idle power savings over the previous model to deliver best-in-class power management and thermal emissions.

Innovation for a More Sustainable Environment

The Deskstar 7K1000.C demonstrates HGST's ecological leadership with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation. Both these features helped qualify the drive for the HGST EcoTrac classification, which identifies products that minimize environmental impact in the areas of product design, manufacturing, operation and disposal.

Power Efficiency Supports ENERGY STAR 5.0

The ENERGY STAR 5.0 specifications released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are recognized around the world as a way of identifying energy-efficient PCs and other computer equipment. PCs that meet the ENERGY STAR 5.0 criteria are expected to become increasingly popular with both corporations and consumers. Some corporations are choosing to purchase ENERGY STAR PCs as part of their "green" initiatives. The low power profile of the Deskstar 7K1000.C hard drive enables a reduction in overall system power requirements, which helps PC manufacturers achieve ENERGY STAR ratings.

In the past i've been referring Hitachi DeskStar as the deathstars due to high failure rates. I have been purchasing these drives for work due attractive pricing and very surprised to see no failure rates over the last 14 months. This purchase was for personal use and would be the 4th drive (over 30 drives are being used at work). Nice improvement from Hitachi.

Brought two of these form Amazon a couple of weeks back. They are as advertised and arrived well packed. I have not had any problems so far.

I am running one drive internally and the other in an open external enclosure as a backup device. The drives are very quiet and don't get very hot (just ran a disk benchmark and the temp went up to 33ºC). CPU usage during the test was 7.2% on my E6750 system.

Performance on HDTune shows transfer rate avg of 108.2 MB/sec (131-65MB/sec). Burst rate was measured at 207MB/sec.

Access time at 14.1ms seems a bit slow but then this is a 1 TB drive. I can't find anywhere that Hitachi is quoting access times on this drive, so I have no scale to know if this number is good for this drive or not.

I will give it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the possibly slow access time.

I bought this drive because of long term dependable service from a previously purchased 320GB Hitachi drive. Some better known brands have not always lasted as well although warranty was always honored. This drive came well and securely packed and went into use immediately in an external enclosure for very important back up.

Installed one of these in a NAS last March to replace a failing Seagate. It seems many of the early 1TB drives, including the Seagate 7200.12 series and WD Caviar Blacks, had extremely high failure rates after only a few months. I ended up going with the Hitachi as it was one of only a few other drives listed as supported by the NAS and seemed to have slightly better reviews. The Hitachi drive is much quieter than the Seagate, and seems to run a little cooler as well. I also purchased a Samsung F3 drive around the same time to use as a backup, and while that one is a little noisier than the Hitachi, it seems to be slightly faster as well. Both the Hitachi and the Samsung are still working fine more than 6 months after being installed, which is more than I can say for the similar drives from other manufacturers.

The hard drive was dead on arrival. As I've had issues with Hitachi drives dying quickly in the past, I was honestly not surprised. It was the cheapest option at the time, but I will not make that mistake again. Just avoid Hitachi. It's currently listed at 159.99 - I would not gamble with one of these drives at that price.

On the bright side, Amazon's RMA is fantastic.

Was professionally packaged and easy to open. Connections are standard SATA and installed with ease in my 2005 desktop. XP installation automatically detected and configured drivers. Formated and been using for a couple weeks now without problem. Seems a bit slow, but that is likely due to age of desktop system and not SATA 3.

I've usually had good experiences with Hitachi storage products and this drive didn't disappoint. Good price, pretty speedy for your standard SATA drive <10000+rpm and no complaints all-around. Hope that Hitachi keeps up the good work post being acquired by Western Digital

Works fine. No issues so far. I connected this as secondary drive in my desktop to keep second copy of all my documents. I read reviews in Amazon and some other places. Deskstar drives failed and I thought of take risk for the price I paid. I was using Toshiba portable Hard Drive (80 GB) from last 6 years and never had any problem.
