Detailed item info

Product Description
The Hitachi Deskstar 7K500 is the first 500 GB hard drive available in both SATA and PATA interfaces for faster data transfers, meaning quicker boot times. It's also designed to be used for streaming video and music, with Smooth Stream technology that minimizes data errors from the 500 GB internal hard drive. In terms of space, the 500 GB in the Hitachi Deskstar hard drive can hold 125,000 MP3 songs or 56 hours of high-quality video. It also is specially designed to combat the effects of temperature, with a low-power mode when data is in RAM, and a temperature controller to protect user's important data on the Hitachi Deskstar 7K500. The 7,200 RPM speed of the platters is not as fast as some other hard drives, but still writes quickly for the Hitachi Deskstar hard drive. That's especially important for users who plan on copying music and videos on this 500 GB internal hard drive. For buyers considering it for use as a network device, to run graphics-intensive games or as a part of a multimedia workstation, the Hitachi Deskstar 7K500 offers a number of worthwhile features.

We have been idle on Ebay for several months but are back offering many auctions for excess inventory and low-mileage components pulled for system upgrades. As always, all of our auctions are "No-reserve" with extremely low startings bids. Please check out all of our listings!! Thank you!!


There is no Buy-It-Now, so please do not ask. We simply start many of our auctions at 99 cents with no reserve. Good luck if you choose to bid!!

If you win multiple auctions: Before paying, please wait until we send you a combined invoice with the combined $$$ savings for shipping.


This auction is for a 4-piece lot of used, reasonably low run-time, (16 - 18 months run-time on each) Hitachi 500GB Deskstar 7K500 IDE ATA-133 7200RPM drives. 8MB Buffer. 

Reasonable run-times for these drives, each drive has a run-time of approximately 16 - 18 months.

The actual amount of run-time on these disks can be verified using Hitachi's drive utility or any S.M.A.R.T drive utility.

In the period of time these drives were used, they always worked flawlessly, pulled from systems to be replaced with higher capacity SATA drives.  These drives were retired many, many years ago and have been sitting idle and unused in a cabinet (safely packaged in a static bag) for 4 years. After being pulled from the original systems they were kept on-hand in case they were needed elsewhere, they are not ..... so up for auction they go ......

Winning bidder receives four 500GB drives /  Hitachi Model HDS725050KLAT80     /   Also marked p/n 0A31613

Total capacity = 2 Terabyte!!   (500GB x 4) 

Drives are in 100% healthy functional operating condition.  Since they had been sitting idle and unused for 4+ years, the drives have been put through extended testing, and formatted for this auction.  They were tested for quality / condition of the drive sectors and media surface.  Drive testing reported the drives are in 100% healthy functional operating condition.

Normal Retail New: ~ $500  (~ $125 each)    /  Or you can buy at this No-Reserve auction for quite a bit less :-)

Save big $$$ with these thoroughly tested, low-mileage, excellent condition and guaranteed used components!!

This model drive is becoming difficult to find at a reasonable price.

Drive Build Dates: Qty 3 July 2006  /  Qty 1 Nov 2005  

PLEASE NOTE:  These drives do have minor but noticeable scuffs / scratches on the cases and labels which do not show up well in the pictures. (The soft and shiny aluminum case has a tendency to scratch / scuff easily). See close-up pictures for general idea with regard to the case scratches / scuffs.  These scratches / scuffs occurred from handling for removal, during storage and re-test (as well as from occasionally being moved around while stored in a cabinet for 4+ years).  Please do not bid on these drives if you would find the scuffs and scratches to be upsetting.

Warranty Info:  There is no transferrable MFG warranty.  These are OEM drives with an expired warranty (and the starting bid reflects this).  However, for your protection we provide a full 30-day money-back guarantee for the drives.

Technical info and specifications for this model drive are available at the following web link:


Of course, for your protection we provide a full 30-day money-back guarantee for the drives. If you experience any operational problems with the drives simply return for a full refund (we will even pay return shipping costs). All used drives we auction on Ebay are put through extended testing and are backed by our 100% operational and properly functioning guarantee.

DRIVES ONLY!! NO SOFTWARE, MOUNTING HARDWARE, MANUALS, ADAPTERS or CABLES ETC SUPPLIED! (The winning bidder receives exactly what is shown in the pictures).

Combined shipping: Yes - If you win multiple auctions we do combine shipping costs to save you as much $$$ as possible. We do not look to make money from shipping charges. But we do need to cover the shipping expense, packing labor, packing materials etc. We ship all disk drives in new ESD bags and protective padding to protect and ensure the safety of the disk drives during shipment.


If you win multiple auctions: Before paying, please wait until we send you a combined invoice with the combined $$$ savings for shipping.

We do not supply tech support for installation, operation or compatibility issues with this component.  Before bidding, please make sure you have the technical "know-how" to perform the installation.  If you expect you will need tech support for installation and operation of this component we recommend you purchase new and full retail from a vendor who can provide the support you may need.

Important Payment Policy for bidders with a feedback rating under 5 – Unfortunately, payment from bidders with a low feedback rating has been problematic as many of these bidders (zero bidders in particular) believe that bidding on Ebay is not a serious matter.  We are happy to do business with new Ebay members and appreciate their interest in our auctions.  However, if your feedback rating is 4 or under, immediate payment via PayPal is due at the close of the auction.  If payment is not received immediately, the item will be offered to the next highest bidder.  We apologize to the new Ebay members who are responsible and would pay in a timely manner regardless, but the actions of irresponsible bidders who do not take bidding seriously have forced us to institute this policy.


Winning bidder has a 30 day period after receipt of drives to test them. If it fails to function properly just return it for a full refund. No reserve price. Check out our feedback to put your mind to rest. Shipping is $16.00 to the Continental U.S. We ship via UPS ground insured in rugged boxes. We accept PayPal only. Auction items will be shipped only to the certified Pay-Pal shipping address!  For bidders with a feedback rating of 5 or higher, payment is due within 5 days after completion of auction. Bidders with a feedback rating less than 5 must make immediate payment or the item will be offered to the next highest bidder.  Sorry, but if winning buyer doesn’t honor their bid we have no choice but to post negative feedback and notify the Ebay police. Good luck and thanks for bidding. Any questions please e-mail.
