    Good price point. The drive that worked, works well. Hitachi has treated me rather well over the years. This is my first DOA drive, or even defective drive, of probably 30 or so Hitachi drives I've used. Thus the 4 egg rating. Read more

    2 out of 5 eggs Good while it lasted...

    Pros: Fast and cheap

    Cons: Died after 18 months. Started the click of death.

    Bottom Line: There were quite a few bad reviews about this drive and I thought I would give it a try. It was very fast and good while it lasted, however I need something more reliable than that.

    1 out of 5 eggs

    Pros: Cheap

    Cons: Took me about 5 mos. to figure out what my computer problem was, starting two weeks after building my computer. I was getting very frequent "Video Hardware Error" and "Graphics Driver Failed" errors while playing games and Flash failures when watching youtube. Started replacing compy parts when it was in my budget since drivers, new fans, and OS reinstalls didn't help; this had been causing it. Put a new HDD in and tried to use this as a backup or something, but now it is completely dead. Upset I lost $70 on this.

    5 out of 5 eggs

    Pros: Great Drive buy it on sale and you'll not regret.

    Cons: none

    Bottom Line: My opinion is that 500GB(465GB usable) drives are better than larger storage drives like 2 / 3 TB HDDs if the RPM say here 7200rpm you essentially would just have more space to seek through taking more time to find what you're needing and after the drive has been used for a while it will take longer to find places to write and so forth but depending on usage the larger drives have their place. I'm a don't keep all the eggs in one basket approach to storage myself.

    5 out of 5 eggs Good size, and price

    Pros: Not sure what to say. It's an HDD. It's only been corrupted by RAM. I though the hard drive had gone bad, but after extensive testing in other computers, the RAM was the problem. This HD is almost a year old, and running strong. I have moved it to my linux in exchange for a much faster SSD.

    Cons: No cons for this product per se. However, I would not reccomend buying an HDD. I have had an SSD in this build to replace the HDD and I would hands down recommend and computer aficionado to purchase an SSD instead of an HDD. These are only good for storage. Also, it is compatible with Sata-USB 3.0 converters, so you can use this as external if you wish.

    Bottom Line: If you are dead set on buying an HDD I would reccomend this product, but if you are just looking to build a computer, DO NOT BUY THIS. you want to buy an SSD, not an HDD. HDD is a thing of the past. SSD's are uncomprehendingly faster. If you play offline games with an SSD and enough ram, you may never see load times again.
