5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: This particular HDD came in my HP Pavilion laptop. The laptop is now going on 4 years old, and has had more than its share of use. This hard drive is almost twice as fast as the 5400 rpm HDD that is in another one of my laptops; though, its not quite as fast as a SSD. I have never had a problem with it, its been extremely reliable. It also handles every sort of bump, bounce, and drop that its been through.

I do not know why all the bad reviews. It seems I've experienced exactly the opposite from all of the others. Normally when looking at reviews, you see that some people have obviously received "a bad one out of the batch." It seems that in this case I received the only "good one out of the batch."

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Although this has given me zero problems, and seems to work flawlessly; I would be skeptical about purchasing one based on all of the other reviews.

1 out of 5 eggsgreat until it dies, and will die

Pros: fast
quiet

Cons: dies
not reilable

Other Thoughts: Drive can installed in my sony laptop. works great while it last. transfers are decent, very quite overall great. one big problem is it will die. i have had my laptop 11 months and have had to replace it twice (both under warranty). glad it did not cost me anything, but the trouble of replacing a hard drive multiple times a year is not something you want.

1 out of 5 eggsOnly lasted about 14 months

Pros: It was pretty fast and quiet while it worked.

Cons: Did not last very long and died without warning.

Other Thoughts: This drive was OEM and in my Dell XPS laptop. The original drive (same drive model) was replaced by Dell 14 Months ago. I've owned the computer for 2 years and both Toshiba drives failed at about 1 year. I guess thats why their warranty is only 1 year.

1 out of 5 eggs16 months

Pros: decent capacity & speed (while it worked)

Cons: shot craps 4 months after HP's warranty period expired for the OEM drive.

Other Thoughts: rather expensive, especially when following a bad experience. This will probably be replaced by a cheaper, larger HDD or a hybrid ssd/hdd

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

1 out of 5 eggsVery poor quality

Pros: The capacity and speed are okay, but not for the price. Black friday/cyber monday sales had many 256 GB SSDs for not much more than this hard drive and they are MUCH faster AND more reliable.

Cons: Windows installations kept having issues, games chug and stutter, drivers act up, and overall sluggish performance on a laptop with a core i7 quad core and a GTX 560M card. The solution to all of this? I switch to a 60$ 120GB SSD and it all goes away. This laptop was a fresh refurbish from toshiba themselves. THe hard drive should've had very little use yet this hard drive failed spectacularly right out of the box with the stock windows installation throwing .dll errors when trying to install games.

The stuttering though was what got me the most. The first time I would play a map in CoD or boot up mechwarrior online, or play a particular level of L4D2, the game would hiccup and stutter like crazy. If I went and played it again though? Somewhat fine with just the overall sluggishness felt elsewhere present. But after upgrading to 16GB of ram, I realized that the performance issues were the hard drive.

Couple that reliability with an insanely high price, and this is a product that I can NOT recommend. I know toshiba desperately wants in on the HDD business but they can not produce a quality product yet.

Other Thoughts: My laptop is a Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7270. I upgraded it from an i5 2410M to an i7 2760. I went from 6 to 16GB of DDR3 ram. It has a GTX 560M video card. It came with this hard drive but now I have a kingston 120GB hyperX SSD. The SSD has made me completely satisfied with my purchase. The toshiba hard drive made me want to get rid of it as fast as I could.
