Hitachi Hdd.......good Or Bad Reliability?

Recommended Posts

http://shop3.outpost.com/{Q1qHJtCuAuMccVgX...product/4322615

 

Is this 80 GB HHD from HITACHI a good reliable brand for making HDD. I'm thinking of getting this for my main HDD for my final rig? Thoughts or Ideas?

not sure, but for around a similar price you can get a 80 or 120gb ide seagate drive from zipzoomfly.com though.

How loud?

 

You think I could here it because I have a CPU stock fan (for warranty) and a 9600XT Pro Fan... :unsure:

Whoops I meant "I have one for one of my old Dell's"

I just hear this little clicking sound ever once in a while. The PC is so old that the fans are exremely quiet, so thats probably why. You most likely won't be bothered by it.

I agree with the Hitachi part (I have 3 in my rig) but the Maxtors are not anywhere near quiet or cool running at all. I can hear my ONE Maxtor SATA drive over everything else in my computer. :glare:

2x hitachi 160GB sata

1x seagate 7200.7 120GB ide

1x seagate 7200.7 200GB ide

1x ibm deskstar 40GB ide

 

hitachi took over or somehow became the new name for ibm... ibm redeemed itself after the infamous DEATHstar series (aka Deskstar 60 or 75GXP) and made some very high quality drives... then Hitachi took over and continued the trend...

 

i prefer hitachi and seagate because they are quiet, fast, cool, reliable, and aren't particularly expensive...

From what I've heard, Hitachi's are pretty decent little HDD's. I have always been a seagate fan. My old 30gig seagate that has been thrown around all it's life (8 years old) just died recently. But 8 years for a used and abused HDD is pretty good.
