Slightly off-topic, but Hitachi reportedly offers poor customer service when a drive fails. I have come across multiple online forum posts about this problem.

I'm hesitating now, after reading the comment by Atif Aslam re. guarantees at the site where I was going to purchase:

http://www.ebuyer.com/393234-hitachi-4tb-7k4000-desktar-hard-drive-hds724040ale640

But I'm not sure exactly what he's talking about (what's a 'warranty check'?):

'I have ordered 5 of these drives this week and just did the warranty check on them, they all less the 3 years, infact they are less then 2 years they all are valid till 2014-05-24, I have emailed HGST and will phone them tomorrow morning as well, I ordered 4 of these drives from another retail 2 weeks ago when ebuyer didn't have any stock, and they are all good until mid august 2015. So something is definitely wrong here, if someone from ebuyer would like to comment on this please.'
