LOVE It!!!!!!! I could not believe this was a clock. Our brother in law who is an I.T. person raved about it. It was the Perfect gift for him. When he brought to work everyone was amazed. No one had ever seen something like this. I cannot say enough about the high quality work that went into making this. You are amazing. Thank you.

It's a very nice clock. I gifted it and the recipient loved it. We did have an issue with the item, but the seller got back to us within a few hours and rectified the issue. We were very happy with the service and friendliness of the seller. Thank you.

About

I had a one good idea. Make a clock out of a Hard Drive that looks good enough to showcase.

My name is Mike and I am a web designer and computer technician. I have always been taking things apart since I was a child and love making new things out of them.

I have been working on computers since the mid 90's and I have acquired a lot of non-working computer parts, including hard drives.

I have taken hard drives apart before and displayed them on my shelf. They didn't do anything but attract dust and fall over sometimes.

So it clicked one day that I would make clocks out of them.

This idea is not new, but I want to make a better one while keeping it simple, upright, protected, and get attention from the other side of the room. I want to showcase the beauty of the once hard working hard drive, while still maintaining a purpose.

So I asked myself a simple question, "What do I want people to see when they look at my Clock?"

"I want them to imagine the billions of data that used to be stored on the, beautiful, mirror like disc."

Times are changing and I know, at some point, the mechanical hard drive will be hard to find. Most people have already destroyed and replaced them with a solid state drive or something new altogether. I will not miss hearing the clicking sound a hard drive makes while it's running or even failing, but I will always enjoy seeing the shiny platters.

I hope you enjoy my GigaClock as much as I do and treasure a small part of history at the same time.
