Planning to build my next external HDD (2.5") but hoping to use something a bit higher spec (esp. 7200rpm)
Had little to no experience with HGST before, so question is, is overall QC and reliability comparable to WD, or better (just don't quote me those Backblaze figures pls)?
Currently eying on the HTE721010A9E630/0J30573 (7x24 model) which dealers claim has a more durable motor than standard version
Originally wanted to stick to Scorpio Black (NOT Black2) but that lineup only has up to 750GB capacity and only up to 16MB cache
Anyone has good luck with this 7K1000? (Only sold at Jumb0 for a hefty ~$64x)
I have two standard 7K500 as secondary storage. The old one works fine, but the new one randomly emits "click" sound, sure not normal spinning/RW sound, seems like actuator parking.........should I return it?
No experience with 7x24 models.
I've been using a USB 3.0 HGST 7K1T with my tablet for over 1 year. I think the HDD is excellent but the case is easy to scratch. (Not sure if the newer model uses a different finishing or not) Speed under USB3.0 is adequate for me.
You should check the price for USB drives too because sometimes its almost the same as a HDD!
