    My first Serial ATA 7K250 was bad out of the box so I sent it back RMA. I just got the replacement yesterday and put it in my computer. I booted from the Drive Fitness Test floppy and it said the disk is fine but it makes a clicking sound and I've heard that this means the drive is going to die. Should I send this one back and try another one?

    Wanted to get an 80GB S-ATA and it had good reviews. I'm thinking I should have stayed with Western Digital since I've not had any problems with them.

    Here is Hitachi's response.

    Hitachi Global Storage Technology drives have various internal procedures
    that verify the performance and reliability the drive. This is a relatively
    new feature of our drives and, with no way to suppress the noise, it can be
    mistaken for drive problems. Unless this is something the drive has just
    begun doing or you are experiencing problems, there is nothing to worry
    about.
