This is just trying to read 5GB off the drive with dd and the drive initially tested ok but shortly after I wondered why I was seeing 2MB/s read speeds. Notice the "current_pending_sector", anytime I've seen it at anything above 0 even with no other bad fields/attributes, it means the drive is bad.

The first Hitachi Deskstar 2TB 5K3000 drive I bought arrived DOA for whatever reason (not recognized by the BIOS or OS). Perhaps it was shipping since I bought only 1 hard drive. When I bought 4 through another Vendor, all 4 checked out fine.
I was worried about the RMA process because a lot of people have complained about Hitachi taking weeks to send out their hard drive and almost implied the warranty is useless.
I'm happy to report that my experience was great a........
I bought the 1TB Deskstar C revision recently at just $49 each and put them in RAID 1for my Desktop.
Look at how close the old Deskstar 1TB comes to matching the performance of the mor expensive Samsung and WD's?
This is phenomal, I can't believe the performance I've gotten out of these cheap drives.
Let the numbers speak for themselves, from what I read the Load_Cycle_Count which is very high (more than 500,000/half a million times) is the number of head parks. What a stupid"Green" design and design flaw which will probably mean an early life for the drive.
This is almost as silly as Seagate's new reputation for BSY/poor quality disks since the 7200.11 series.
To make it worse this is also when Western Digital introduced "Advanced Format" o........
It always worked fine before but no amount of power unplugging/cycling does any good. I can access one network share and that is one that I've already saved, but it can't see any workgroups.
One silly thing is why is there no option to manually connect to a netbios name or IP?
It seems there is a bug with the firmware and that the SMB client is not working properly. Hopefully it fixes itself at some point.
Between this and the lack of support for embedded s........
This was unbelievable how much the Xen kernel slows things down, keep in mind both tests were done on the hostnode, one was with the Openvz-Xen hybrid kernel and the other was just OpenVZ. You can see the performance difference is nearly 300% better when not using the Xen kernel.
