Hitachi hasn't been into hard disks as long as the likes of Seagate, Western Digital or Maxtor; in fact, it wasn't until Hitachi acquired IBM's engineers that their drives started to be a real power, and it's good to see that the performance of the IBM drives have managed to keep going whilst the reliability has improved. I think we all remember the old issues the Deskstar drives used to be plagued with, or as they quickly became referred to as "Deathstar" drives.
Hitachi has really put out a kit here which I think borders on the practical and extraordinary. In fact, it's hard to think of anyone else who sells a dual purpose notebook upgrade kit; normally it's a case of swapping out the old drive out for a new one and the old one becomes totally useless or redundant. Here Hitachi has catered to the fact that the drive can be used for another purpose, of if you so intend you can use the drive included in the kit and make an external drive straight out of it. The decision is there to be made by you.
Overall, the Hitachi drive performed beautifully for a 2.5" notebook drive; its noise level was almost non-existent, heat was extremely good and my overall impression was top notch.
