I think the "Deathstar" moniker is from years ago when they had a batch of bad drives. I've been researching 1TB drives for an upcoming server build and the Hitachis seem to come in pretty strong. Other than being a little on the loud side and not the most power efficient, they have good performance rankings.
With this price, I think I might jump on it...$30 x 3 drives I need is a pretty good deal.
