Deal of the Day – Hitachi Deskstar 2 TB SATA III – on sale at $69 and free shipping

Run out of storage? Amazon has this 2TB Hitachi Deskstar CoolSpin SATA 3 32MB cache model HDS5C3020ALA632 (0F12117) for only $69.99 with free shipping and no taxes in most states. Excellent customer reviews and for this price, you cannot really go wrong. Just Don’t forget to back-up your data, loosing that much is a pain. Fortunately, they are cheap enough to get two, as I always do. I guess it will be a trend since today’s hard-drives are this large.
This Hitachi drive features their CoolSpin technology to keep power consumption to a minimum and a very quiet operation. An interesting feature is that this drive spins at  5940 rpm instead of the standard 5400rpm  of other green drives offering a significant performance boost. Sequential read/write is around 140MB/s, faster than the WD Green EADS series drives.
