Most helpful reviews

Ian, E Sussex IT Professional

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Cheap for 1TB
Bad points:
Took a while to find correct drivers that would get a larger more advanced drive working correctly in my Toshiba laptop. It installed and Windows loaded fine but things like Windows update wouldn't work until the correct storage drivers were installed. Not the fault of the drive but the drive manufacturers could all do with making the information on this more readily available.

Good points:
Good solid HDD. Keep away from Seagate as they seem to have a high failure rate at the moment and the Hitachi drives seem to last much better.
Bad points:
None.

No issues so far, but early days. We've had previous good life from Hitachi, hence the purchase, and hoping for similar with this drive
Bad points:
Not the fastest drive, but perfectly adequate for its intended use.
