Drive failed and will not reformat - unreliable.
personally I've had no luck with Hitacvhi drives (this is strike three for them with myself). Some folks love Hitachi drives but I seem to have no luck with them and find them very unreliable - again this has just been my own experience - maybe with WD buying the Hitachi Drive diviaion quality will improve - I sure hope WD's wuality doesn't drop  to meet Hitachi's standards though :-) ..). Bought this drive to have a backup of stand alone PC - bought it and went away for vacation - came back and the drive was dead - could not reformat it / recover it - not sure what happened but with previous hitachi drives I've had fail within 6 months I suspect it was just a poor quality drive - backj to Seagate and WD from now on.

Experience: 4 Days


Price is comprable.
On XP boot, get a black desktop.
Preconfiged for FAT32. Needs to be converted to NTFS in order to store anything over 4Gb.

On Windows 7, works fine, is fast, and once the Backup setup is found, easy to set up.

Brightly backlit "HITACHI" on the unit is too bright, too large, blinks too brightly during backups when all it needs, is a small light to indicate when it is on, or backing up. In short, it is a flashing, blinking advertisement for HITACHI.
For the price, a great, fast, and efficient unit - for Win 7. Would not recommend it for any XP OS.

Experience: 2 Months


Works!would buy 2 more if they sucked up my loss!
Heard some rough winding startups
Hitatchi 0s02484 XL Desk 1TB External Hardrive USB 2.0 Black

When I looked on the side of the box and found it was only warrantied for 1 year, I said "WHAT"!

HOW TO by Mr.Dan e TexRUs

Pop out the frt faceplate, it says (HITATCHI) with (I used a small jacknife blade).

Will you look e that, 2 screws...remove!

Holding the unit flat in your hand so as your reading the word Hitachi on the right.

Push down and back on the top side of the case, liftup and your looking e your hardrive...

There are 4 screws holding your drive down and 2 holding the control board.

Remove Them!

Lift the metal case out of plastic case.

Remove the 6 screws holding the plastic side rails.

Lift the hardrive out of the metal case.

You now have a removeable/replaceable drive and / or reuseable enclosure!

0f course you voided your warranty by doing so but oh Well, What the HELL!!! Gee Golly Whiz!!!

None The Less!

1 week later the damb thing comes goes on sale for $10.00 cheaper and with no stinking rebate either...

(Don't get me wrong, Rebates are GREAT and I've always received them) - I JUST HATE WAITING FOR THEM!!!

So, I Tossed the puppy into my server and now have 5126 GB of used/ formatted storage space.

I sent the rebate in on june 7-2010 and checked it out on june 21-2010 and it still wasn't there,but as of june 28-2010 it was approved and waiting for final processing! And as of now, it's on the way.

As for the guy asking about sleep mode, I would say If your plans are to use this 1 TB hardrive in a Satellite PVR Receiver so you can be able to preset an unattended recording time,?

littledummy, have you tried it without attending the unit manually? Can you set the the receiver to record a pgm hours after you have gone to sleep and have it record that pgm many hours after the "Hitachi" light has gone out?

I found it worked fine set up to my server as USB device to access my tv media throughout the house, but that's used almost 24/7!

It may be possible for it to work as you say, and I agree, but will it work with a pre programmed unattended recording using the USB connection or by using it as an internal receiver replacement hardrive in the unit itself?

eg: Bell Express Vu/ HDTV 9200 PVR Satellite Receiver is only capable of acknowledging up to a 1 TB hardrive that it is neccassary to have a drive not be in sleep mode.

And the drive inside that unit would be a Maxtor Sata 250 and it's pinned in a factory type setting that shows up
in your "Device Manager" as...(This is not the forum for this),{TheOtherSatGuy}!

good storage
I got a couple of these and they both work good. no problems and the drives are always on. One is hooked to bell HD receiver for pvr function.

Experience: 1 Days


quiet, cheap, ease of use.
not the speediest horse on the market
Seems to be doing a great job. Using with WDTV live and it works well. It is a little slow transferring files through usb2.0 but what can you expect. For 80 bucks can't really be beat.
