Hitachi's 7K1000 Terabyte Hard Drive

Access Time

An access time of 13.8 ms is not quite a revolutionary result, but it is still quick enough for a 7,200 RPM desktop hard drive. Clearly, the 10,000 RPM Raptor drives by Western Digital are much quicker.

Thanks to the high transfer rates, the drive offers great performance when it has to provide the data Windows XP requires at launch.

    Purchased a new Hitachi 1 TB hard drive, but can't get Windows XP loaded without getting blue error screen? Can I use Windows restore/recovery disks with a new hard drive to install operating system.
