HGST offers optional hard drive-level encryption for increased data security and enhanced availability models to deliver high-capacity storage for non-stop environments.

Easy install (4 screws must be transfered from old HD to new one)
No noticeable signal noise
Reliability in long term?
EDIT July 12/2011: I had such a good experience with this HDD, that bought 3 more, 2 are on the USB enclosures working great and silent on my media streamer in my Home Theater room. And two are on my desktops (yes desktop), i find them very quiet and ideal for storage paired up with an SSD for OS/Apps, i have a WHS server for main storage and backups, so the 5k500b is more than enough for local storage, the drives idle very low in my setups, 25C (21 ambient) and under heavy load doesn't break 39C (this is with no active cooling, placed where no fans are near), its hard for me to hear them, even low rpm fans make more noise than this drives inside my case, really happy with this drives.

I bought the 5k500.B on Amazon and it arrived with 5000 power on hours and 3 bad sectors. It is difficult to get clear information on hard drives. I had assumed it was a new one.Published 24 months ago by Fred Kaffing
This HD died after one year with no warning. Not even a hiccup. Until then, it was a nice little drive. 1 year is not long enough. Read morePublished on February 13, 2014 by A. Jones
