I had planned to add a Table in the HDD help file for the newest Hitachi 7K1000.C Series CLA Deskstars like you rec'd, but I read the NewEgg Reviews and I don't like them.
A couple of DOAs out of 6 ordered by one person, a "runs warmer than same-size Seagate" from another, and 11 1-STAR REVIEWS (30% OF ALL REVIEWS)!
One of the 1-star reviewers said this:
"Other Thoughts: I have never had Hitachi drives die on my before.
Been working with them and selling their products for almost 15 years now. Something has got to be wrong with this batch! "
If you install this 7K1000.C Series CLA drive, please let us know how (IF) it works for you?
If i used them, ill post it. I have a infrared thermometer that i might try to see if it gets hotter..... but since i manage to get one from your approve list, a new HITACHI Deskstar P7K500 HDP725050GLA360 (0A35415) 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB... im not sure yet, i might just sell the 7K1000C.
