I have had the 2x80GB RAID 0 Hitachi Deskstar 7K250?s for several months and have found that they are very reliable drives. The drives run quiet and are warm. While writing and reading, they generally produce sounds and sound levels typical for hard drives, though I discovered one exception. The 7K250 is very quiet when shutting down the computer. My old IDE Maxtor would make a thump sound when shutting off, but the Hitachi's only whine down. Overall the Hitachi Deskstar 7K250?s are really nice performers and so far are very reliable drives. And ?RAID 0? really sounds cool on a performance system. With that, the 2x80GB Hitachi Deskstar 7K250?s will power our AMD Athlon 64 system from now on. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
