Good price for the fastest 2TB drive around. It has the same specs as a 1TB (7200RPM, 32MB Cache...). £4 more than the usual 2x1TB offer, but obviously less power hungry than running two drives.

Highest capacity and reliability with a proven design. Currently the Fastest 2Tb in the Market!
The DeskstarTM 7K2000 hard drive delivers a colossal two terabytes of storage capacity and 7200 RPM performance in a standard 3.5-inch form factor. 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.

Outstanding energy efficiency.
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.

Innovation for a more sustainable environment.
The Deskstar 7K2000 demonstrates Hitachi ecological leadership with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation. Both these features helped qualify the drive for the Hitachi EcoTrac classification, which identifies products that minimize environmental impact in the areas of product design, manufacturing, operation and disposal.

They have the ST3200542AS - 2TB on for £76. It's slower, but if you just need it for archive / storage, it uses less power and has a longer warrenty.

The 7K2000 is supposed to be a good performer, so if you are going to use the drive for your boot / os, it's probably the better choice..

Hey man! Hows things back in 2003? Congratulations on inventing the time machine, don't let it get in the wrong hands!
By the way, I have three drives in my machine, all different brands... and the Hitachi is the best performer by far.


I agree. They are amazing drives. Good for raid, high performance and low fail rates.

i wouldn't ordinarily buy seagate but just went with it as it was cheaper and using it externally so the speed was no big issue, the drive is still faster than firewire 800 so i'm cool with it, great deal, as is this one if you are using internally or with esata

Absolutely true I personally havn't bought any other brand and have personally purchased 10 HDS in the last few years and to date had not issues. Only reason I'd use the Deathstar name is casue they "OWN" the competition.

This drive is no faster than the latest Samsung or WD drives that can be found for the same price or cheaper. Infact, this drive has the slight disadvantage of requiring 5x400GB platters to reach 2TB rather than the 4x500GB platter used by most of the competition. All things being equal, a drive with 25% more platters will have a higher chance of failure and produce more heat and noise.

Are you a bricklayer:)?

...just kidding. All modern drives are reliable. I don't think I have ever had a 3.5" hdd fail on me.
