Hi.
I'm buying a new comp. The old one has Western Digital which worked
just fine. Anyway, what is there to know about hitachi drives? Speed,
quality... I know hitachi CD-Roms are pure disaster, but I don't know
much about their hard drives.
(it's hard to find comparison on hard drives)

Beware. I bought a pair of 80 gigs last year because of their quietness
rating. In use, they are quiet, except for the once every 10 minutes
"recalibration" where they make a loud, extremely annoying, "errrrrrrrttttt"
noise. Discussions with their tech support claim this is "normal". I won't
be buying any more of them.

Hitachi bought IBM's personal computer hard drive stuff (manufacturing
division I guess). Just before the takeover, I bought an IBM Deskstar
120GXP 60GB hard drive. I got a really great price and posted about it,
for which I was lashed and lectured on how horrible they are. That was
June 7, 2002. It has been running like a top, very quietly almost 24
hours a day since then. Good luck.

For fewer $ you can get a Maxtor with better specs.

If you know their CD-Roms are pure disaster, you know all you need
to know to make a decision about using their hard drives.

You quoted the 2nd worst (Maxtor) and omitted the best - Seagate.
