Specs: Windows 10 , i3/16
I bought a refurbished Hitachi Ultrastar. I just want to know, it’s power on time is almost 8 years and I expected a bit less, but it’s start ups are only 49. It also has an average temperature of 57 degrees while light usage / idle. Think I should keep it? Speccy says there’s no errors. I didn’t expect it to be great but am now just wondering how long it looks like it has and do find it hot.

Drives are strange beasts. I've got a WD over 30 years old, still running fine. Main thing is that you backup any data you consider significant.

You didn't list the capacity or the complete model info, but my guess is it was used in a server. That would explain the long power on time with minimal restarts.
