Retail Box Version

The Deskstar 7K2000 hard drive range delivers upto a colossal two terabytes of storage capacity and 7200 RPM performance in a standard 3.5-inch form factor. The overall capacity is dependant on which version is purchased as these models are available to purchase in a range of capacities.

Now in its fourth-generation, the 7K2000 is based on a robust mechanical design that continues to set the industry standard for quality and reliability.

Through a patented ramp load/unload design, data heads are moved to a ramp away from the disk where they rest during periods of inactivity. This greatly minimizes the risk of shock damage by eliminating direct contact between the heads and disks, reducing wear and heat while improving overall drive reliability and power efficiency. The Deskstar 7K2000 also incorporates thermal fly-height control (TFC) technology which uses an integrated heating element to precisely maintain a constant fly-height throughout read and write operations to enhance overall data integrity, drive performance and reliability. The 7K2000 features industry-standard native 512-byte sector formatting, ensuring compatibility with mainstream computing environments.

The Deskstar 7K2000 offers an exceptional blend of capacity and power efficiency, with idle power savings over previous generation products up to 10%. On a watts per gigabyte basis, idle power has improved over 120%. Leveraging eighth-generation power management technology, including power-saving innovations like HiVERT technology, this drive delivers best-in-class power management and thermal emissions to help manufacturers meet energy compliance targets and extend drive life.

1. £43.67 Inc VAT
2. "Retail Box Version " ? imo - OEM
3. Warranty direct with IBM not scan (maybe better as scan warranty procedure is crap )

Myth - nothing wrong with them.

Had 4 of these in my NAS and recently upgraded to 4 of the equivalent 2TB model - not a single hiccup.

Im never touching another Hitachi drive again after they were dropping like flies for me in the past!! :-o
#9
But how long ago? Hitachi are now rebranded, and considerably more reliable, IBM drives. The Hitachi of the past are long gone. I personally think that Hitachi branded drives are some of the best now.
#10
Most of the "Deathstar" drives were actually IBM badged and before the branding change. AFAIK most of them also died within the warranty period. So the only people who lost anything were people who don't take adequate backups.
#11
It's funny how people cry about XYZ manufacturer. And those those poor souls so confused about the done to death tail of "Deathstars", without actually knowing the full story.

I've had got 16 of these drives running in 2x DAS801T's, running 24/7 and I've had none fail in close to two years.

Strange how I have heard very few negative reviews from people who have purchased modern Hitachi HDD's.
I myself have had 5 x 1TB Hitachi drives in a RAID5 box for 1.5yrs. They run very cool and quiet, and I have not had a problem with any of them.
It's like writing off new Skoda's because many years ago they made crappy cars, regardless of the fact that new ones are well built and very reliable.

Funny how the only 2 WD HDD's I've bought in the last 2 yrs both failed within 6 months though...

Headline and deal says 1TB, blurb says 2TB.

Looks to me like a 1 TB drive not the 2TB folks seem to be voting on.
#19

Copy and paste from scans today only link.. Not my fault

Ditto. I would go for the F3 every time. Plus, it's actually cheaper than this one now that the price has changed.

It's pretty clear that it's a 1TB drive. The blurb talks about this product range going up to 2TB, not this drive being 2TB. Having a go at the OP because you didn't bother to read it properly just makes you look stupid.

I suspect most people read the description of what they're buying a bit more carefully than you seem to do, and I doubt many people would be stupid enough to expect a 2TB drive at this price just yet. It was getting hot votes because at under £40 (although it's increased now), it was probably one of the best GB/£ deals we've seen on here.
#25
pay the exxtra for the f3... also i would recommend a few smaller hdds to spread risk..
#26
The F3 is a better performer, but both are very good drives.
#27
had loads of IBM drives with no problems at all (120gb one still going in the wifes pc 5years+ on 8-10hour a day)

heat added
great price OP

Also £43.46 with Scan and you'll get it on Tuesday if you sign upto AVforums. You could potentially be waiting a week Monday to get it from Ebuyer...


I think they've started Saturday shipping so it should arrive on Monday.

I think it all depends on usage - if going in a NAS, only certain drives are certified/supported.

They used to be terrible, not too bad these days. I'd still RAID-1 any critical data.

Not true.. More likely you are a compulsive liar.

3rd market leader after Seagate and WD and have one of the best names in the server trade. Unlike samsung which people are recommending in here, which are mainly bought by noobs.

NO!

Get yourself a low RPM drive, these drives do get hotter than most other manufacturers due to them spinning at 7200rpm. It will make your sky box noisy due to fan constantly spinning to keep cool. Get yourself a Samsung 1.5TB. You'd be silly getting a 1TB at this point especially bearing in mind something like 250GB of the drive is reserved for "Sky Anytime" and can't be switched off.
