For a decent affordable price I bought and built this, I can do all of the stuff I need to do and much more but no less.

So far they've lasted me, since September of last year and they show no signs of failing yet. Hopefully it stays that that way as I can not afford to replace any hardware.

Maybe, I'll give it a year though to see if they show any signs of failing. I'm curious how long it took you Hitachi drives to fail?

THe first one started clicking after a month and failed after about 2 months the replacement I got from hitachi was DOA the second replacement gave me a ton of read write errors and caused bsods. AT that point I gave up and bought a seagate drive and a samsung drive. THe seagate gave me a little trouble with the firmware but it was fixed with a firmware update and the samsung has gave me no trouble what so ever

I've had one of my Hitachi drives for about eight or nine months, the second I got about a month after my first Hitachi drive. I had to purchase another HDD because one of my parents cats knocked it off of the top of my computer chassis and ruined it, I had the HDD out sitting on top of my chassis since I was waiting for a new motherboard, after accidentally bending and breaking a few pins off of the cpu socket on my old motherboard. The third Hitachi HDD isn't recognized by the bios or Windows and just makes a barely audible clicking sound. I really wish there was a way to salvage the drive because if I could get it working, the extra 2TB would definitely come in handy to me.
