    Cheap and Good – Fantastic Drive, March 6, 2011
    This review is from: Hitachi Deskstar 3.5-Inch 2 TB 7200RPM SATA III 6 Gbps 64 MB Cache Internal Hard Drive 0F12115 (Personal Computers)

    The Hitachi/IBM brand of HDD is one of the most reliable brands of HDD out there in the market today.
    So far, my other computer HDDs are Western Digital and Hitachi in various sizes. For over 6 years now, the drives have not crashed at all. That’s how reliable they are.

    As at today’s date (7th Mar 2011), the Hitachi Deskstar 7k3000 64mb Cache SATA 3 7200rpm model is one of the fastest 3.5″ HDD out in the market. This is due to its 64MB cache. According to other reviewers who have conducted extensive tests, the 64MB cache makes it significantly faster than its predecessor, the Hitachi 7k2000 SATA 2 32MB cache 7200 rpm model.

    This drive is very quiet, cool and fast. Using the esata interface, my actual data transfers were about 1.5GB/Min for sata to sata transfers and about 1.2GB/Min for USB (HDD) to this SATA HDD.

    I bought this 2TB version because I wanted to add an external HDD to my overall computer setup.
    I managed to pair up this HDD with the following HDD enclosure, the Vantec NexStar CX NST-300SU (ASIN: B001TQ2PSO, Item model number: NST-300SU-BK ).
    Vantec NexStar CX NST-300SU-BK 3.5-Inch SATA to USB 2.0 and eSATA External Hard Drive Enclosure (Black)

    Using this combination, the 2TB is completely and natively recognised by my BIOs and by Windows 7 using the eSata port on my laptop.

    There is currently a 2TB technology barrier when it comes to HDDs. So for those who want to play safe, it is better to stick to 2TB for now.

    There is a 3TB version of this HDD out there.
    However, there is no concrete confirmation that 3TB HDDs can work with the current existing line of HDD enclosures out there, so that is the reason why I chose to get the 2 TB instead.

    For those users who are thinking of jumping onto the 3TB HDD bandwagon, there are a few caveats you should be aware of.
    Basically, your O/S, Bios and HDD enclosure have to support 3TB HDDs, otherwise you won’t see the entire 3TB.
    For more details, please Google “hitachi hi capacity tech brief”.
    The PDF file is very well written and contains all the information you require.

    Hope you find this information useful. 🙂

    This review is from: Hitachi Deskstar 3.5-Inch 2 TB 7200RPM SATA III 6 Gbps 64 MB Cache Internal Hard Drive 0F12115 (Personal Computers)

    I ordered six of these drives to be used with my Qnap 659 Pro II NAS. It works flawlessly and even when all the drives were building RAID 6 Parity, it was very quiet. I am very happy with the performance of these drives. They may be a little expensive, but I picked it because almost all the SMB NAS manufacturers support these drives (Cisco, Synology, Qnap, Netgear). These drives are running 24/7 in my NAS for over a month and weekly tests and diagnostics tells me they are fine.

    In the past, I had very good experience with Hitachi drives and I am going to order six replacement 3TBs soon with similar speed as soon as the prices comes a little down, but before WD acquires Hitachi GST.

    In short, absolutely worth spending every penny on these.

    Hitachi 1.5TB far outperforms Western Digital WD15EARS, April 9, 2011
    By 

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    The Hitachi 1.5TB Deskstar hard drive I purchased far outperforms my two Western Digital WD15EARS hard drives. Its speed of 7200RPM is much faster than Western Digital’s unspecified rotation speed, which is claimed to be less than 7200RPM, adjusting to save power. In addition, the Hitachi burst rate is 6Gbps, double the WD’s 3Gbps. Believe it or not, I have found the Hitachi to be about twice as fast as the WD, which I had to replace because boot up speed and disk accesses seemed to take about twice as long, and accesses seemed maddening slow. Furthermore, you get this quality for only slightly higher price than the WD. The Hitachi 1.5TB drive comes with a three year warranty, which attests to its high quality. Hitachi is the third of the big three, including Western Digital and Seagate. However, I am completely happy with the purchase, and I have been using the Hitachi for about two months, now.
