- This is a very fast drive. I got transfer rate of 135MB/s at the outer edge of the disk, dropping off to around 65MB/s at the inner tracks
- Very quiet once the AAM is enabled and set to the quiet value
- It is a 2-platter design, which is more energy efficient and theoretically less prone to head crashes
- Retail packaging means you are not taking a chance of whether a bare drive will be packaged properly, and a cable is included as well.
- It is fairly loud out of the box with AAM turned off. It is a low-pitch rumbling instead of clicks when seeking
- Does not come with backup/imaging software in the box like similar Seagate/Western digital retail drives.
I have purchased three of these drives and several other Hitachi models over the years. I have had zero issues with them - no bad sectors, no drive failures! All very positive.
As the technology evolves, platter density increases and consumer installations become more prevalent, there will be higher reports of issues. It is simply a statistical fact. I have experienced issues with both Western Digital and Seagate drives although both companies did replace the units with no questions asked. But I can honestly say that even from from the days of IBM involvement with Hitachi, I have never had a problem with this brand of drives. I own models going back as far as 2002 (20GB) that have never had even a bad sector.
I am sorry to read the previous bad review here on Amazon but drives do fail and it can be very traumatic to lose valuable data. It just has not been my experience with these drives. Of 61 current reviews on the "Egg" for the same drive, 95% are positive (50 five star, 8 four star and 1 three star).
Perhaps I have just been lucky! Hitachi has earned my loyalty.
BTW, the "Egg" sells these for $20 to $30 more depending on the day. Amazon lately has had the best prices on all computer accessories including Apple products.
So now I've purchased an internal 1TB Hitachi drive. It's a typical hard-drive, fast and quiet, very large capacity.
The primary reason for my doing this review is to agree with 100's of reviewers who have been noting the unbelievably inadequate PACKAGING that Amazon is now doing as a matter of course. I'm not talking about the 'hassle-free' or the 'green' packaging, I'm talking about throwing a sensitive piece of equipment into a huge box and not adding the packing material needed so the customer will receive an UNDAMAGED product. I did order the drive, but I ordered the RETAIL version instead of the OEM bulk drive. Doing that meant the drive would be packed in a shock-resistant shipping box and hopefully arrive in usable shape. It did. That was early Jan. and everything's OK so far.
I just don't understand their poor choice in regard to packaging. What do you think?
It's not even the same model as described, so if you're ordering it as an exact duplicate replacement for a RAID setup it may or may not work with a 0S00163 drive. The drive I got was 0F10383 which in fact has a good spec and 32Mb cache, but that's not the point if you need an exact replacement.
It might turn out to be a great drive, for all I know, but it gets a 1 star for a deceptive description by Amazon.
I might have given this drive five stars, but since I have had it installed for less than 24 hours, I cannot rate the long term reliability of the drive.
Retail box with 18" sata cable and mounting screws included. Also booklet with instructions for those who need it.
Good size drive for the money I gave for it. Good performance.
The drive became rather noisy during the end of the format. I thought it might have been defective. Runs quiet now. Looks like I was nervous with out good cause.
