Some customer reviews of Hitachi Deskstar 5K3000 2TB

Most helpful reviews

Jon, East Anglia PC user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Tested briefly, seems OK, despite possible damage in post.
Bad points:
OEM version arrived inadequately packed and with one corner of the small cardboard box, just big enough to fit the disk inside, badly crushed. As the box was in a black plastic bag, this wasn't visible until the bag was open. There was no indication that the contents were fragile.
