4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price 3 Sep 2008
The drive I received was a Hitachi branded drive. Very good value for money at 500GB for around 45. The drives speed is a bit slow, Vista scores it at 5.7. But overall a good priced drive.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy from rusmart 27 Feb 2009
I bought from marketplace seller "rusmart".

Although listed as "new", the hard drive that arrived was reconditioned Western Digital. Not only that, rusmart had placed a "Void If Removed" sticker over where it said reconditioned on the drive's label.

If I wanted second hand I would've gone to eBay. I'd recommend stearing well clear of this seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money 20 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase
There's not much I can say about this hard drive other than it does exactly what it's supposed too. I use lots of drive space and this is the 4th hardrive I've added to my pc. Its the cheapeast drive for its size I've found and performs perfectly compared to the other 500GBs I've purchased. Why pay more when this is just as good as its competitors. I'll certainly buy more of these when I need them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor lifetime 28 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase
Bought mine in May 2009 and it stopped working a while ago, unfortunately its outside the warranty so can't get my money back. Luckily I used it for external hard drive backup but I still think I wasted 26 GBP for something that worked just over 1 year. I have a Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB installed in the sister casing on a different PC ad it works fine. I would advise paying a bit more for better quality brands like WD or Seagate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good generic drive 10 April 2009
Good generic hardrive does exactly what it says on the tin. I have performed a few reformats and fresh installs and it has coped admirably. Very quiet drive too. All good so far. My one seems to be a completely generic drive unlike some of the other reviewers who were lucky enough to receive branded ones. Ordered mine on a Tuesday just before lunchtime and found it at my desk at work the following morning. Very impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money - runs cool 31 Jan 2009
By T. D. Welsh TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Recently I noticed that one of the hard drives in my 4-year-old Dell Precision 470 was turning up too many errors. I downloaded a couple of SMART monitoring programs and discovered that both drives - Maxtor Diamondmaxes - were running hot. One was 45-55C, the other 50-60C. The latter was showing many bad blocks. Evidently, it was on the way out.

So I ordered this "vanilla" hard drive from Amazon, and when it arrived a few days later I found I had a Hitachi Deskstar. (It's important to note that your mileage may vary: all you are promised is a good quality 500GB HDD, but in practice it will be a "name" brand). Knowing the "Deathstar's" unenviable reputation, I was concerned, but I fitted it. That took about 10 minutes, and I immediately saw the Deskstar was stable at about 35C, with the remaining Diamondmax now at about 45C. Both are well within acceptable temperature limits, and everything is working smoothly. The Deskstar is very roomy at 500GB, and performs better than the old drive - which was a pretty good spec when I bought it in 2005. All in all, a very good deal for the money.
