Colossal Add-On Storage for your PC, Mac, or Linux System
HGST Desktop hard drives are designed to the highest quality standards and contain field-proven components. The HGST Deskstar internal hard drive kit delivers colossal add-on storage with high performing 7200 RPM speed in a standard 3.5-inch desktop form factor. With the HGST GPT Disk Manager, no additional hardware is required to overcome the 2.2TB limitations of Windows systems when you're adding a 3TB drive.
Robust Design for Reliable Performance
The HGST Deskstar features a robust mechanical design that exceeds the industry standard for quality and reliability. Through a patented ramp load/unload design, the risk of shock damage is minimized by eliminating direct contact between the heads and disks, reducing wear and heat while improving overall drive reliability and power efficiency.

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.

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.
