Pros: Amount of storage, it worked like it was suppose to.

1 out of 5 eggsRun Away! Warranty scam!

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: One of many manufacturers.

Cons: RMA process requires proof of purchase. A retail receipt.

I have a failed drive. It happens. Imagine my disgust when I began the RMA process. If I had purchased this drive locally, I would be ------.

---- you, Toshiba.

Other Thoughts: What difference does it make if the drive is reliable? What does it matter what anyone says about the product? The warranty is a scam.

5 out of 5 eggsNAS

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Purchased 6 of these to place in my Seagate NAS Pro 6 bay. Arrived relatively quickly packaged in bubble wrap. Kinda got me worried and I started scanning the drives with HDTune. But there was not a single drive that was damaged or error prone.

They have been going strong for the past month and so far not a single issue has propped up that would insinuate that these drives are bad.

Cons: The shipping packaging was a bit sketchy but it worked.

5 out of 5 eggsMe Likey

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 3TB is a holly cow amount of storage. 3000 Gigs is really 2.72 TB after install on a Windows o/s. Not an over-sized case; universal size. Quiet.

Cons: Not for the plug-n-pray world. You will need to format the drive to mount it. H/D comes with no software.

Other Thoughts: If you can, tie this into an existing computer and format the drive in the O/S. Then you can put it into a new system, and the MoBo will mount the drive in BIOS; tech hack for a new build.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Great price

Cons: Bare drive only - no cables

Other Thoughts: Packaging from Newegg on these drives was awesome. There is no way they could have been damaged in shipment. Each drive was placed into an air-cushioned wrap and then into a small box. These were then placed into a larger box that was well padded. No errors or bad drives on installation and they seem to be working well in my FreeNAS system.

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Was expecting a HDD with some decent specs for a great price, instead I got a overpriced paper weight. Arrived dead.

Cons: didn't work.

Other Thoughts: save your packaging material, otherwise you will have to return it to Toshiba.

2 out of 5 eggsBad blocks out of the box

This review is from: TOSHIBA DT01ACA300 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Cheap, large capacity, quiet, SATA III

Cons: Bad blocks present when scanned, no Toshiba testing/config utility

Other Thoughts: I picked up 2 of these for a song during a flash sale. As they are replacements for my current 2x2TB RAID1 setup in my NAS, I want them to be totally reliable. After coming up empty on Toshiba's website, I called support trying to find a disk testing utility made by the manufacturer like WD, HGST, Fujitsu, and others have. After being told they don't have one, I used Drive Genius on my mac to run a surface scan of both drives. Sadly, bad blocks started to appear almost immediately during the first scan. I let the scan run to completion (6 hours) and a total of 5 bad blocks were found. I use my NAS for backups, so I am sending back that drive. The second one scanned and no bad blocks were found, so I will be keeping it.

2.5 eggs for now. I will update this review once I receive the replacement drive and test it.
