Great HDD 11/13/2019 12:41:03 PM

Pros: I have 4 of these HDDs running for 7 years, 5 years, 3 years and 1 year. No problems whatsoever.
WesternDigital bought HGST, and these are my go-to OS & backup drives.
I have 2 laptops running SSDs (1 on Windows 10 & 1 on LinuxMint), and 3 laptops running these HGST HDDs (on LinuxMint).
I backup critical data/programs to one of these daily.

Cons: Not FREE!

Overall Review: I stay away from Seagate now (forever, since the last 1 I purchased croaked after 20 hours of use) and only buy Crucial, WesternDigital and HGST drives. I wouldn't touch AData or TeamGroup with a 10-foot pole.

Mine failed 3 years, 6 months, after only light use 1/6/2019 10:11:22 AM

Pros: Great price at the time I boiught the drive.
I have bought many HSGT desktop drive and had have exactly zero failures.
Worked well when it did.

Cons: This is the second HGST laptop drive that has failed me.
I have this drive in an external drive case, and I don't use it very often. Yesterday I plugged it in and my system just hung. It took literally overnight for Windows administrative tools disk management to stop the spinning circle once I selected that drive. Then a quick format failed, twice. Now I'm doing a full format.

Too bad the warranty has expired.

Overall Review: If I have to replace this drive, which I probably do, it will be with a WD drive.

Failed at 3 years 7 days 12/4/2018 8:34:54 PM

Pros: It was great while it lasted.

Cons: Failed right after warranty expired.

Overall Review: I had replaced my optical drive with this drive for storage, so all I lost were files I hadn't yet backed up. Unfortunately that included the final version of my dissertation the evening before I was to submit it.

You gotta hand it to 'em, they timed it pretty well.
I probably won't purchase another HGST drive.

A familiar name among the many options!!! 11/22/2018 12:51:10 PM

Pros: 7200 RPM drive.
This is the one that comes pre-installed in numerous new laptops as it is cost efficient when you compare it to other models available out there and the price/GB you have to pay. The other drive that I have on my lap is also a similar one.
Good read and write speeds. Should be good for configuring as the system drive if you do not have an SSD on your system.
Trustworthy brand( At-least for me since I have been using Hitachi's equipment and parts for a very long time)

Cons: No cons as far as I can think of except for the differences between magnetic HDD and SSD but that is not relevant to the performance of this product.

Overall Review: Update after an year of usage:
Still going strong with the same performance that I expect from a Hitachi drive(WD drive),however you want to call it:). No problems and I stand by my review that I made when I got this drive.

Dead after 3mo of 1-2 hr/day use 8/31/2018 4:04:40 PM

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: I've had many Hitachi's over last 20yrs and had a few failures with them, but only after drops or old age. This is a 2018 model and it didn't last 200hrs. HGST does not equal old Hitachi.
