The Deskstar 5K3000 hard drive provides an enormous capacity and features innovative CoolSpin technology to deliver a greater level of power efficiency and quiet operation for energy-conscious, environmentally-friendly computers. Key to CoolSpin technology is an optimization of motor speed to provide an ideal balance of performance, power utilization and acoustics. The CoolSpin technology, along with other Hitachi power management techniques, gives the Deskstar 5K3000 its 29% power savings over the Deskstar 7K3000. The latest SATA III interface delivers noticeable data transfer boost of up to 2x the speed of SATA Revision II, reaching the speed of 6Gbps.

  • newegg Power efficient for cooler operation and longer life CoolSpin and HiVERT technologies combine to create this new class of hard drive that delivers excellent power utilization and thermal emissions. HiVERT technology helps efficiently manage power consumption. These innovations, along with eighth-generation Advanced Power Management, make the Deskstar 5K3000 the ideal choice for energy-efficient PCs that run cooler, require less power and last longer.
  • newegg SATA III Interface The industry leading SATA Revision 3.0 compliant SATA ports provides up to 6Gb/s data transfer rates to reduce system bottleneck and improve performance and efficiency.
  • newegg Innovation for a more sustainable environment The Deskstar 5K3000 demonstrates Hitachi ecological leadership with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation. Both of these features helped qualify the drive for the Hitachi EcoTrac classification, which identifies products that minimize environmental impact in the areas of product design, manufacturing, operation and disposal.

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 eggs

Pros: Large size. Cheap when purchased two years ago before the Thailand flood. Three years warranty.

Cons: Purchased three. One failed after two years + 5 months. Still remain to be seen how the other two stand.

Other Thoughts: Used as part of the NAS raid 5, in light use.

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!

1 out of 5 eggsUsed to be a great drive.

Pros: Pros? Two- A large amount of storage, and a good price.

Cons: One- Lack of reliability. After about a year, I got the dreaded click of doom. The drive won't post or do anything but click.
I had planned to add a second drive and an SSD down the road, but after this happened I went with a Barracuda instead.
If I get a replacement (I'd much rather have my original repaired, honestly), it's going straight into an external enclosure and will only be used sparingly. Maybe that will help extend the life past a single year.

Other Thoughts: I've gone through many computers (and HDDs) in the past twenty years, but this is the first drive failure I've had since 1998.
