    Huge, silent, decent transfer rates

    5 out of 5 eggs
    I just bought this drive yesterday and ran some benchmarks (on an SATA2 board): HD Tune: Read: 109.5 MB/s average, 144.0 MB/s max, 58.4 MB/s min. Read access time 19.7 ms Write: 106.8 MB/s average, 141.5 MB/s max, 56.5 MB/s min. Write Access time 17.8 ms As you can see, the access times are a bit slow (to be expected with a 5400 rpm drive), but the transfer rates are very decent due to the large data densities. The drive is very quiet, does not vibrate and stays cool - 31 degrees Celsius after 10 hours of surface scanning, ventilated by a slow 600 rpm fan. The drive's formatted capacity is approx. offers 3726 GB.

    1 out of 5 eggs Really disappointing

    Pros: Capacity (Large)

    Cons: Reliability (Poor)

    Bottom Line: Purchased through NewEgg and have had in service since March. Started getting various errors beginning in June (less than 4 months) using this drive as a backup target (64-bit Win7 Ultimate). Eventually ran CHKDSK /F to have it find and correct(?) a single failed cluster, only to have the drive start failing again just a week later.

    3 out of 5 eggs One of four went bad

    Pros: Revising my review.

    Cons: One of the drives that were packaged badly died. Fortunately it has been in a mirror and the other one is doing fine. Now I have a problem of backing up the data before attempting to recover from this failure. Removed one additional egg. Will see what the experience with customer support will be.

    Bottom Line: Gone bad too fast...

    4 out of 5 eggs does Hitachi support it?

    Pros: Large and quiet.

    Cons: I cannot find information or support about this drive on Hitachi's website.

    Bottom Line: The part number on the protective bag says "0S03364", but I cannot find that part number in Hitachi's website and does not match any number on the drive label. The serial number on the bag matches the one on the drive. The description on the bag says "Hitachi 3.5 4TB Coolspin IDK bulk pack - ww". One of the part numbers on the drive is 0F14696 and the other part number is H3D40003254SE and a similar looking model number is HDS5C4040ALE630. None of these show up on the Hitachi website. Also the Hitachi support tools do not work on drives over 2TB. This drive was made in November 2011 and has the coolspin logo on the label.
    It works as advertised but the lack of documentation and support tools make me reluctant to buy another one. Get with it Hitachi!

    4 out of 5 eggs Purchased two more - packaging was bad

    Pros: The first pair is still doing fine, needed more storage and purchased two more of these for a second mirror.

    Cons: The second pair was packed horribly, but works just fine. I hate removing an egg for the product due to shipping problem, but it is part of the deal. Do better Newegg.

    1 out of 5 eggs 2 arrived DOA. Do not buy.

    Pros: What pros?

    Cons: First one arrived DOA. Newegg replaced no problem. 2nd one arrives and it takes a week before I can test it again. Ya know....because I have absolutely nothing to do but test failed drives from Hitachi and Newegg. Guess what. DOA. DO NOT BUY DO NOT BUY DO NOT BUY

    Bottom Line: Great, and now because I'm a few days past Newegg's 21 day policy I have to deal with Hitachi now. Newegg might occassionally have better prices, but at least with a brick and mortar store I can go and return a product that ISN'T WORKING. I'm pretty offended here Newegg, your customer service rep sucked. You're clearing doing nothing to help my situation. You've just lost a customer.

    You suck New

    3 out of 5 eggs Questionable quality

    Pros: Large amount of data in a single package. Not fast but not slow. Great for my storage and data manipulation servers.

    Cons: I am unsure about the quality of these drives. Under heavy usage, SMART reported an increasing number of uncorrectable errors for one of my three drives (all less than a month old). That drive had increasing uncorrectable error counts and randomly went off-line so I filed a RMA. Another disk has a small number of uncorrectable error counts and I am keeping an eye on it. My drives experience heavy usage under ZFS.

    Bottom Line: Although I believe the drives' quality is a question mark, I have bought two more. I use a fair amount of drives and I am hopeful my experience is an anomaly. I have had trouble with other vendors and models.
