I suggest you hook it to a PC and use the Drive Feature Tool and turn on Automatic Acoustic Management using the recommended value. That way it will be nice and quiet.drguppy said:Does anyone know if the Hitachi Deskstar 1TB HDS721010KLA330 is compatible with e-SATA expansion for Series 3?
I cannot see any difference form the Hitachi CinemaStar 1TB HCS721010KLA330
other than seek rate is slower at 14 ms compared to the Deskstar at 8.5 ms.
I have a 500GB deskstar connected to my S3 here in the den. I cannot hear it. My DLP fan is the only thing I can hear until I crank volume to normal.mikebridge said:i've seen mixed reviews on the acoustics of the deskstar, is it quiet enough for S3 use in a reasonably quiet room, with acoustic management enabled?
I've had a 1TB deskstar in an Antec MX-1 for 2 months now, and it's whisper quiet. I can't hear a thing.mikebridge said:i've seen mixed reviews on the acoustics of the deskstar, is it quiet enough for S3 use in a reasonably quiet room, with acoustic management enabled?
Great, I'm looking to get a similar setup myself. Any GSODs or other problems?NOD said:I've had a 1TB deskstar in an Antec MX-1 for 2 months now, and it's whisper quiet. I can't hear a thing.
...anything happen since (6/29)?NOD said:i have the exact same setup (1TB Hitachi in an MX-1), and I've had it attached for a little more than a month.
I've gotten 3 GSOD's in that period of time. Each time it took the s3 about 10 minutes to boot back up and work fine again.
I haven't tried ordering another set of cables yet, but I would be very appreciative if you would report your results after you try it w/ new cables (in part b/c I got another mx-1 for my other series 3, but haven't opened it up and slapped a drive in it yet).
I had one other GSOD, which, like the others, fixed itself in about 10 minutes.nuttzy06 said:Great, I'm looking to get a similar setup myself. Any GSODs or other problems?
EDIT: actually, saw you on another thread....

You would need to divorce the external drive, lose those recordings, and then clone and expand the 250GB onto the new 1TB and start fresh from there. On a S3, there is no particular problem that anyone has reported with using the Hitachi 1TB as an internal drive.malvarez said:I have an unexpanded 250GB Series 3 with a 500GB eSata drive attached. I am not 100% satisfied with the eSata reliability, so I hoped to transfer the 750GB of data to a Hitachi Deskstar 1TB drive and go back to a single drive system...
