4 out of 5 eggsInexpensive, good quality drive

Pros: This drive has been in use for over two months to store music and movies. It's used daily and is quiet, cool and has a speed averaging around 130 mbs. The packaging was excellent (both Toshiba and New Egg) Of course, duration is to be determined. Very important is that Toshiba has a 3 year warranty and failures are replaced with new, not refurbished, drives.

Cons: A cable and screws should have completed the set.

Other Thoughts: It took me quite a while to take the jump from 2 TB to 3 TB. Two months prior to this purchase bought the same drive for about $75 - the price was the incentive to moving to 3 TB. Both drives now seem solid.

In the last 3 years I've purchased 10 WD Blacks, 2 WD Blues, 1 Seagate Barracuda, 2 Seagate greens, 4 Toshiba HDD, 3 Toshiba portables and 1 WD portable. Only the 2 Seagate greens failed.

5 out of 5 eggsToshiba 3TB Retail Kit HDD Review - Great HDD, especially for the price!

Pros: Excellent hard drive, especially for the price. I went with the retail kit version because it comes with a 3-year warranty, versus the 2-year warranty provided with the OEM version. 1 year+ in operation and thus far no issues.

Cons: I think a 5-year warranty would be more appropriate for a drive of this speed, cost, etc. If you can't back your product with a long-term warranty, then why bother producing them.

Other Thoughts: A friend and I each bought one of these about a year ago and neither of us has had an issue since. I have also used a few of the 2TB models in builds for clients and thus far no issues.

1 out of 5 eggsawful

Pros: large size, was on sale

Cons: was DoA at about half storage capacity it refused to write more and started corrupting was fully dead within a month.

Other Thoughts: after reading other reviews and being tired of trying to deal with them I'm just going to give up and buy a new one then try dealing with newegg directly after manufacturer warranty expires (newegg says 3 years but the info in box I got says one so I think newegg is just trying to screw me over too).

1 out of 5 eggsMost Unreliable HDDs Ive owned

Pros: They were on sale when I bought em. That about the only good thing I have to say about these.

Cons: I bought 2 of these 12 months and 1 week ago. The first one failed after maybe 6 or 7 months and the second one just failed today.

If that wasnt bad enough when I called Toshiba to get an RMA on the drives I got transferred back and forth between 3 different departments about 8 different times before I finally got ahold of someone who took responsibility for it. All three departments kept saying that they didnt deal with this particular model of hard drive. Turns out the first number I called was apparently the correct one O_o.

Then to add insult to insult to injury the company wanted me to pay for the return shipping of the defective item. I got news for you Toshiba and every other manufacturer, If I buy your product and the stupid thing fails within the warranty period then you better sack up and make it right. Its not my fault the drives died premature deaths. Ive been an IT professional since the early 90s so dont try and put your terrible manufacturing quality problems on me. Im not paying for your mistakes. I'll pay for my mistakes which in this case was buying these terrible drives but warranty returns are no my responsibility. If you try and make it my responsibility then youve just lot a customer. I almost always stick to WD and Seagate for my HDDs and now Im paying for going against my own better judgement for the sake of trying to save some money.

BUYER BEWARE!!!

Other Thoughts: Toshiba's customer service sucks as bad as these HHDs

5 out of 5 eggsA great drive

Pros: Very quite. Reliable drive. I have been running 2 of these in my desktop system for over a year and have had no problems with them. They are quick and quite.

Cons: None thus far

Other Thoughts: I would not hesitate in purchasing more of these drives. They come well packed in the retail box.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs cool, very quiet. Surprisingly fast, averaged around 150 MB/s when I checked it with HDTune.

Cons: The warranty is a little shorter than I'd like, but I guess all the manufacturers have moved away from 5 year warranties. Guess that says a lot about their reliability.

Other Thoughts: So far so good. Using this as the DVR drive in my HTPC, so it gets daily abuse. By the way, this retail version is slightly more expensive than the OEM, but it gets you an extra year of warranty, which I recommend. Spinning drives can fail at any time, I don't care who made it.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: So far so good. I've had this drive for over a year now and use it to store my media library. I will most likely be purchasing another one soon and mirror the drives.

Cons: wish they were cheaper, but this one was under $100 in 2013 so I'll take it.
