5 out of 5 eggsThe customer service is great

Pros: Inexpensive hard drive.

Cons: first hard drive received would not work, second hard drive is loud.

Other Thoughts: I gave 5 mostly for the customer service. They were polite, understanding and fast at responding to my problems. the hard drive is you get what you pay for. I will definitely be ordering better quality parts for them.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and *reliable (*for me at least)

Pros: I got 4 of these in Feb 2011 and they all still work like the day i installed them.

Cons: When i wanted to get rid of a 1tb internal drive i had i figured why not just install windows on one of these, and that was a big mistake. even though in the support documents they are listed at 5940 RPM, they feel worse than any 5400 RPM drive i have used before. everything loaded extremely slow and so i ended up just getting a new drive and using this one for storage again.

Other Thoughts: All 4 have been storage drives in a desktop that is only off when the power AND UPS dies. The drives are almost always in use being downloaded to or read from. The computer they are in hasnt moved an inch either since the day they were installed, which leads me to believe why ive had a better experience than some of the other people here.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible durability

Pros: It worked for a while

Cons: I purchased two. After just over two and a half years one basically died and I neglected to check if the warranty expired. Now another six months later the second one is dying. Both are out of warranty :)

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of useless junk

Pros: Dirt cheap

Cons: Made in China - and you get what you pay for.
Slow, unreliable

Other Thoughts: This was the last drive I bought from Hitachi/HGST and most likely will avoid their new owner WD from now on as well. I had this piece of junk for about 2 years and then it just came up with a controller error from one day to the next. Of course no warranty coverage any more.

2 out of 5 eggsNot suitable for NAS

Pros: Hitachi has a great customer service
As long as the hard disk within warranty date, Hitachi replacing with new HD

Cons: I paired up Hitachi GST Deskstar 5K300 HDS5C3020ALA632 in NAS with RAID.
In 2 years, it fails 2, with about 11 months life.
I'm not sure how good is the HD outside of NAS usage.

3 out of 5 eggsYou've got to be kidding...

Pros: Large size.
Good price.

Cons: Slower than the 7200 RPM drive it replaced.
Poor reliability.

Other Thoughts: When I purchased this drive, the price seemed very good for the size. But, you get what you pay for. The drive failed one month and twenty days after the warranty expired. I have several gigabytes of family photos and music that may need to be professionally recovered. Guess I should have purchased that online backup service!
