Bought two of these last time they were on sale (same cost as today).

Really nice drives, relatively quiet and cool.

Strangely, they identify to the system as Hitachi drives.


@blue11: That's because as part of the deal when WD bought Hitachi, they had to relinquish all the plants. Toshiba stepped in and bought it up and hence got into the 3.5" HDD business.

If you notice, Seagate (hate...) bought Samsung and simply re-branded all those good drives that Samsung used to make into "Seagates".
